    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    REI Backpacker Extended First-Aid Kit is rated 4.3333 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Package Like all prepackaged first aid kits, this one is pretty comprehensive and comes with a very handy carrying case but has terrible bandages, tape, and gauze pads. It also comes with not really enough Neosporin, since I find the item I need more often than not is a good durable bandage and a bit of antibiotic this is annoying. Fortunately the container itself is quite good, and comes with usable components like tweezers, wound wipes, bandage scissors and pain killers. I buy these from REI and then throw away all the bandages and sterile pads and ointments, replacing them with Band-Aid Tough Strips in two sizes (one waterproof), Johnson & Johnson Gauze Pads (3"), a small tube of Neosporin, and a small roll of Johnson & Johnson medical tape. The additional cost is maybe $10 but I having good bandages is well worth it. At the very least throw just the generic bandages away and replace with something brand name, you will thank me when you need to actually use these.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great first-aid kit for hiking this first-aid kit is very useful for a group of hikers planning on a four day trip. its lite, labels make it easy to find what you need and it is a great thing to have and hope not to use.
