    • The REI Annual Dividend is a unique benefit of membership. It is your share of the co-op's annual profit. It is comprised of your member dividend and your REI credit card rebates.

      Each March, active REI members receive their member dividend in the form of an Annual Dividend notice. The refund is typically 10% back on eligible REI purchases.*

      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 (purchases minus credits and returns) of at least $10 per year, unless you joined during that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member dividend. Other family members can use your member number to earn a member dividend, but the membership can’t be transferred to someone else.

      Please note, your online purchase history is not a complete transaction record and cannot be used to accurately estimate an impending dividend.

      *10% member dividend is typical but not guaranteed. Your member dividend is based on eligible purchases, which exclude REI Outlet or Garage items, sale and clearance items, items discounted 15% or more, gift cards, REI Adventures trips, REI Outdoor School classes and outings, service fees (ex. rentals, labor), membership fee, postage, event tickets, passes or registrations, government agencies and sales tax.

    • 5% back applies to REI net purchases (purchases minus credits and returns) including full-price and discount-price items, REI gift cards, services, fees and REI Adventures-invoiced trip payments.

      1% back applies to non-REI net purchases (purchases minus credits and returns) only. Non-Purchase transactions, including cash advances, convenience checks, balance transfer, and other advance transactions as defined in the Cardmember Agreement, as well as interest charges and fees, do not qualify.

      REI will donate $.10 per REI Co-op Mastercard purchase transaction made between 4/1/2017 and 12/31/2017 to the National Forest Foundation, up to $1 million. Non-Purchase transactions, including cash advances, convenience checks, balance transfer, and other advance transactions as defined in the Cardmember Agreement, as well as interest charges and fees, do not qualify. Transactions posted in late December 2017 may be applied to 2018 contributions. REI may change the benefit or named charity in future years. REI is solely responsible for making the donation. You’ll receive distribution of the 5% and 1% you earn back each year as part of your REI Annual Dividend.

      Purchases cardmembers make after the final billing of the current year will apply to the following year’s rebate. To ensure that REI credit card purchases count towards the REI Annual Dividend, make sure that the name of the primary cardmember matches the name on the REI membership card. Please direct any questions about your REI credit card rebate to U.S. Bank Cardmember Service at 1-877-734-8742.
