I'm an online shopper, but it will be interesting to see what happens to it once the state/local governments figure out how to effectively tax it.
Not much of a dividend here either. But at 20% off, I am eyeing up this for the new Vaya.
I like their "garage sales". Their selection of clothing / accessories is better than any of the LBS's near me, so I don't mind spending some money there.
That why they make smart word box for tell monkey hard brain hurty things.
$14 & change. I thought I was going to get more, but evidently "some" of my purchases weren't dividendable.
We have an REI and a Campmor about equidistant from our house. I find the Campmor to be better stocked, but the dividend is nice to get on things that I know REI will have there. Some of their activities are interesting to do too.
$7.53 I'll probably pair it along with a gift card I have and their 20% special to get a decent pair of hiking boots. My current ones suck.
We became members back when membership was only $5. My dividend this year is $5.98. Have no idea how the wife is going to spend it.
only 12 dollars
nada, 0, zilch, nunca, nothing, big fat zero!
I usually only buy things when they are on sale so I only got $3. Guess i'll get a water bottle or tube.
The only non-sale items I bought were some Christmast presents.
Going to spend it this weekend along with the 20% coupon on a Saris Bones. The 20% + $16 will make it cost less than the majority of used ones I've seen on eBay (including the shipping cost).
But of course since I'm using the coupon, this won't count towards the 2011 dividend.
I love REI and REI-Outlet.com. One of the big bonuses to me is the ability to buy two sizes of something, have it shipped to the store for free, try them on when picking them up and immediately return the item that doesn't fit with no hassle whatsoever. A couple years ago I was buying a bunch of camping/hiking stuff. After spending over an hour with one salesperson trying on backpacks and walking around the store with them full of beanbags, I left and bought nothing. Later on, I bought three bags off of rei-outlet and had them shipped to the store. Went back in and did the walk around the store with beanbags in the packs again. Kept the bag I liked and returned the other two. Thanks to billing cycles on my credit card, I never actually spent money on the returned items.
I know you can do similar at other stores, but at REI they have never made me feel that I am somehow trying to cheat the system -- which I'm not.
May your tires or beer never be flat.
$2.00 ... seems I bought everything on sale last year.

What's different about the Visa....
Private docent led mountain bike rides through Limestone Canyon. Go to letsgooutside.org and register today! Also available: hikes, equestrian rides and family events as well as trail maintenance and science study.
$84 this year (had to replace a roof rack and all the attachments when my wife's car was stolen). I think it's time for a new shell.

About $30. I need to buy a dry bag for a kayak trip, so that's where it's going. I'm heading to the big flag ship store in Denver tomorrow.
I love the REI in Schaumburg. All the staff is nice and helpful without any pushy salesman crap. When you're a member, they never question returned merchandise, everything is on file, no receipt needed.
