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 fromFantastic watch with excellent features! I love almost everything about this watch. Read on, friends . . . What I love: GPS is quick (and accurate)! Transitions between multiple sports is easy. Pairing with other sensors is a breeze. I love that it tracks daily activities (steps, sleep)--very cool! It's a data-geek's dream. Seriously, this watch gives you so much data that you can slice and dice. I have small wrists (read: chicken wrists), and I wear it 24'7". The weight and extra length on the strap took about a day to get used to, but now I don't even notice it. What I DON'T love: I can't view my daily activity unless I sync my watch and look online. This seems kind of silly, since the watch tracks the feature--why can't I view it immediately? I want to know how many steps I'm taking throughout the day without having to bother with a website. No Android support. Yes, I know this is in the works, but I wanted the feature yesterday--not months from now. The "tap" feature doesn't work. Either my watch is faulty, or it takes a REALLY hard tap. Luckily I wouldn't use it anyway, so that doesn't bother me much. Overall, a fantastic watch. I highly recommend it to both casual and professional athletes. Well played, Polar.

by fromFantastic fitness guide for improvement! I got this a few days ago and so far, the data is extremely accurate and reliable. Best of all the Polar products to date! Very impressive, no more guessing how fit I really am, or how good my recovery strategy is, how intense my training should be today or what my work to rest ratios are.

by fromExcellent Tool! I waited for this product and it did not disappoint. Build is solid and it looks good enough to wear 24-7 - and I do. I train 6-12 hours weekly and I purchased V800 mid-June. There are too many features to list but they all worked for me. GPS, HRM, Polar Flow connectivity and others all add up to a serious training computer for monitoring and managing progress. Even though the social aspects of the Flow site are a bit weak, it still allows our fitness "tribe" to follow one another well enough. The fitness tracking is so strong that it more than makes up for this minor shortcoming of the system. Pairing and connectivity are easy. So far, durability is good (50% of my training is strength training so it gets banged around more than a little). Before the V800 I used a Garmin FR620. The Garmin is and excellent product but less flexible. The FR620 is more suited to runners while the V800 is more versatile - or the versatility is more easily utilized. V800 customizable fitness profiles make switching metrics between back-to-back sessions easy. Well, as I said, too much to list, so I'll stop there - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED PRODUCT. I use mine daily.

by fromLove it. My one complaint is not being able to see how many calories I've burned DURING a workout.

by fromAWESOME!!! Walked into REI and they had one of these left. I have owned every gps watch ever made. Been competing in tris for 30 years. Still own the Gamin 310 and Suunto ambit 2. Just bought it to try out. WOW was I surprised. Best GPS watch (and also fitness tracker) on the market. And the mobile and web apps are first rate. Sooooo much easier than garmin and sunnto. I stopped using them because it was too much of a pain to use. I can go on and on, but just take my word, sell all your other toy watches and buy this bad boy. It is the best....hands down.
