Can a member dividend be given to another person?

Can someone gift me their dividend? If so, how do I go about doing this?

@Dee123 Thanks for reaching out!

We do not have a way for a member to gift their dividend to another person. Membership at REI belongs to the individual member and is non-transferable. While we do allow individuals to put purchases on a membership that is not theirs (i.e. it is a family member's membership), the annual dividend belongs to the owner of the membership. If a member wishes to give away their dividend to someone else, they could go in to the store together and use the dividend on a purchase, or the member with the dividend could use their dividend to purchase a gift card and then give that gift card as a gift.

Hopefully this helps, thanks!
