That's a change from yesterday. Mines updated as well.

Been sitting on an REI gift card all month waiting for it to come out. Was planning on getting the Ibex Indie unless something else pops up.

Yea they have some minor errors in their code for the display, but it goes through just fine.

As most REI members realize, the annual dividend percentage varies from year to year. Why is it that the year when I had a lot of purchases, like $600, the percentage was small, like 7%? Then the year when I had the least purchases, like $25, the percentage was big, like 13%. I can't win.

Doesn't the dividend come with a 20% member coupon as well in the mail? Can't remember from last year.

"Your dividend balance from 2012: $5.63"

Woohoo! With the 20% coupon I can get a Mountain House meal!

Here's hoping my MLD and Zpacks dividends are better.

$73.29 this year. I could have sworn I didn't buy any gear in 2013!

It would be nice if you could see all of your purchases online instead of just REI.com purchases.

What? on 03/20/2014 15:25:19 MDT Print View

"Your dividend balance from 2012: $144.38
Your 2013 dividend is currently being calculated and will be available late March."

I thought I already used my 2012 balance. Does this mean I really have that much left and my 2013 balance is soon to be added to that? I suspect that is really my 2013 balance.

No, it's a screw up on REI's part. That's really your 2013 balance.

Hooray, the dividend is here. Now all I have to do is to figure out how to spend $1.14 at REI. I don't think that its merchandise price tags go that low.

You could get a $0.99 mini carabiner! And still have money left over!

REI Is Still Pretty Good... on 03/20/2014 20:05:28 MDT Print View

For those of us that came into backpacking early-on (in my case early/mid 1970's), REI was one of the only options. Great service, decent prices, and a place you could actually order gear from.

REI definitely lost its way in the mid 1980's and into the 1990's, but today they're own branded stuff competes with the best out there. Something that definitely couldn't be said in the 70's, and many years after.

I paid $5 for my membership in 1975 and have never regretted it... might not be de-riguer these days, but it's still a pretty good outfit, even in an internet age of bored, insufferably unimpressed, gear heads...
