REI Dividend Season

March has come and gone but many of us are still holding onto our REI dividend. Carefully mulling over which piece of gear is worthy (or necessary) enough to be graced by the glorious member refund check.

For the unfamiliar REI (Recreational Equipment Inc) has a cooperative element to its business model. One of the many perks of becoming a member includes a 10% return on the total amount of good you’ve bought in the last 12 months. It’s Christmas in March for all the gear junkies and granolas out there.

So let’s go “window” shopping!! After All, carefully reviewing our options is part of being a smart shopper!
