With a 20% off coupon this means a relatively cheap new pair of shoes for moi. Speaking of the coupon, does anyone know when it comes out?

If you have the exact same sleeping bag with opposite zippers yes. I've owned probably 4 sleeping bags and none of them zip together.


Really? I guess I've had good luck. I suppose they all have been REI brand and they seem to use a uniform zipper.

Probably has an REI visa which gives you 1% on everything. It can add up especially if you use it for work travel like I do.

It could also mean they spent $37,200 on non-REI purchases with an REI Visa Card. Either way that's a lot of spending. I'm not much better. I got $197 which means I spent nineteen grand on stuff. Not sure how that happened...

I'm going to get the dividend in cash and use it to replace the fly for my tent which had it's fly destroyed at Indian Creek this weekend.

The REI visa is a 1% back on all purchase, and an additional 5% back (15% total) on full price REI purchases. Most of my dividend is from the 1% back.

gotcha, so more than 10% but not 20%. Good deal either way. I usually end up with $20-40. Adding that to a gift card left over from xmas and maybe I can buy a new toy.

Can you not read dude? As everyone else has already stated multiple times if you have an REI visa you get 1% back on everything and 15% back on REI purchases. Please go to your room now and let the adults talk.

Spent $700 last year at REI and I'm not sure on what, but got a $71 dividend. Need to start paying attention to what I'm buying so when I see how much I spent I can feel good or bad. "H"

You can get a purchase history from REI. It is very convenient. Just ask customer service and they can print it off.

Just so everyone knows, there are other cards out there that give you up to 2% cash back, and usually come with an introductory offer of 5-6% back for the first 3-6 months. So all of you that are so stoked about your $400+ dividend - it could have been $800+.

Every time you use your credit/debit card, the bank takes up to 3% of that purchase from the merchant. By giving half of that fee to you, they are banking on the fact that you'll use your credit card twice as much. Most people miss a payment or two a year and as stupid as it seems, a lot of people don't pay the full bill every month. That's a whole lot of money they make from you (the average person), just by offering some cash back.

Makes sense, but I never know the specifics of it. I've always wondered if there would be a way to measure the effect of credit cards on the price of goods in the long run. To me it seems inevitable that they would drive prices up.

Just being realistic... Seems like you are often lost as to whats going on in a conversation.

I mean honestly, how hard was it to figure out what they were talking about above? It was stated they were using a REI visa card AT LEAST 3 times.... Earth to Glenn, are ya there?

2% cashback on everything? Why do I not know about those??? No yearly fee???
I can think of a few cards that offer up to 5% on specific stuff (Discover for whatever category they pick for a 3 months period) but none that offer 2% cashback on everything.

If the REI visa was 2% cash back, I'd have earned enough for a couple of full racks of C3 and C4 without setting foot into REI once this year. Well, except for that time I needed chalk.

I got the REI Visa b/c I never buy retail, including REI. At least I get a minimal 5% divy at REI with that.

With all of the coupons, closeouts, etc - you guys realize that 'huge' dividend is only a 10% discount, right? Barely anything after tax.
Most of my gear comes from higher discounted sources, so I'm guessing my divy is $20 or so again.
