    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.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    by fromSimple and effective I bought one of these when I was passing through Seattle a few weeks ago. I've used it on a few weekend outings so far and got compliments from friends who liked the flow rate of the tap and the easy to grab handle which seemed to be favoured by kids who used it over another container which was on the same picnic table. To date I have had no problems with leaks or punctures although I image that this type of material has it limits. Overall seems like a good bet to me.

    by fromLeaky water jugs I bought 48 of these for a group canoe trip. They come collapsed with some corners sharply folded. About one third of them leaked upon their initial filling at a corner that had been sharply folded.

    by frompinhole leaks I had the same problem as Bill the BSA leader. Right on the corner of the fold, there was a pinhole. It allowed several cups of water to leak while being carried inside of a backpack which which was absorbed by a down sleeping bag. Aggravating to say the least when it leaks on the initial voyage. No leak was detected when it was first washed and cleaned before hitting the trail so the refolding must have been too much for this tender flower.

    by fromBoat trip water storage Space is always an issue for boat trips. This water storage unit has proved tough, and a space saver when empty. The handle is comfortable to haul the weight full. The spigot does not drip and is easy for kids to turn on and off. So far it has taken a bunch of trip abuse with no problems.
