I LOVE MY REI DIVIDEND!

Post by Dirt4dinner » Mar 23 2010 12:04 pm

I was expecting a few bucks, but was pleasantly surprised to see I had built up a $100 dividend! DADDY GOT NEW BOOTS! $125, deduct the 20% for one single item...made them $100, applied my dividend and viola...FREE BOOTS!

$7.63 for me, just looking to see what I can use the 20% off on that's all. Maybe a new climbing harness.

New GPS for me. I run everything on my REI Visa and always get back a couple hundred bucks.

Yeah the REI credit card is the way to score BIG dividends! When I got married 5 years ago, my wife and I registered at REI (more-so than any other store actually). Anyone who bought us a gift that didn't have their own account got us credit. I scored an $800 dividend that year. I actually waited for a business trip to Seattle to go to their flagship store to blow the $800 (it was surprisingly easy).

Mine never lasts long. I think I'm gonna put it towards a new tent this year.

3 pairs of socks and my first buff.
20% coupon went toward my Garmin SW maps DVD :y:
For me, sometimes it's just as much about the journey as the destination.
Oh, and once in awhile, don't forget to look back at the trail you've traveled.

I'm not excited about the dividend very much, but I did like that my booklet that it came in had a picture of a guy standing on the Devil's Bridge in Sedona. It was a gray day, but it still looked nice. It's neat to see stuff from your backyard in a magazine. Anyone else see that?
Rocks!!

I just got $42 towards my new hiking boots there yesterday. I forgot about that, turns out to be a good when I go there. I'll be getting a new GPS soon and instead of ordering it online, I might just make the trip there just to put the money towards that.

Went to REI for first time in a long time today. I think I'm going to pay my $20 for a membership! Also fell in love with an Osprey Atmos pack. Have to save for alittle while.
