    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.

    by fromBest Kayak Carrier Hands Down I did a lot of looking and surfing the net before I bought this system. I have an 01 CR-V with factory rack and the cross bars are the oval/aero type so I was concerned about a solid connection since most of the clamps seem to be designed for round or square cross bars. The Jaylow clamps fit perfectly and snugged down very securely. The best part about the Jaylow that sets it apart from most other racks is the use of TWO clamps not one. I cant stress enough how important that is to me. This system is super easy and fast to mount and the fold down feature is awesome!

    by fromYakima Rocks It Again! I bought this kayak carrier for my Volvo XC60 with 'non-traditional' crossbars that were factory installed (sort-of like aero bars, but more rectangular in nature, and fat, but apparently not as fat as whispbars), and this carrier is the FIRST that was NOT incompatible, so I'm in love! As they say, installs quickly right out of the box--took about 10 mins to figure out the SKS lock core since the literature in the box said refer to insufficient/not updated since the JayLows release literature that came with the core housing or the cores themselves. TIP: no core housing needed, it's already there! Core housing is sort of hidden and not well identified in the literature, just look for the plastic plug next to the screw drive assembly on the left. Once I got the cores in and locked in place, finished. Installed in a total of 20 mins or less. Another brilliant, user friendly rack solution by Yakima! Keep up the good work!
