Make sure you choose wisely when shopping with that windfall.

Damn  Shocked

Mine was $113 from using the REI visa. Thought it would be more, but you dont get anything back when you use it on sale or items from the outlet page. Oh well the savings on that page are better than the amount you would get back.

I have to admit I was in shock when I opened my dividend letter last night. I knew it was going to be big, but that big?

$18.98, up from $0 last year. Apparently, between July and December, you can show up at an REI store and receive the dividend in cash or by check.

$60.08  And most of it was for buying freeze-dried food!  I bought a few smaller pieces of gear, but mostly it was food.  My wife and I slept in the tent for about a month all told.  Great year for backpacking!

The only big piece of gear I purchased was the $400 Big Agnes King Solomon two-person goose down bag, but I got that for below $300 by applying last year's dividend and the 20% one-time discount that came with the dividend, so it didn't count toward this year's $$.  I would've frozen to death last Memorial Day in Kelly Camp if it hadn't been for that bag.

I wonder if there's another big gear item I want to upgrade to with this year's deal.  Hmm.  Decisions, decisions...

$12.80.  And almost all of that was for bicycle tires I bought there last year.  There's not a lot to buy at REI these days unless I turn into a yuppie that just wants to look 'outdoorsey' (not much chance when you're +50 yo).  I've also got a $100 gift certificate that I could use it with to get a new pair of hiking boots for no-snow hiking conditions really cheap.   Or maybe some high-tech shoelaces?

I only got $108 this year.  I think my wife is happy because it is so low…here is hoping she doesn't put together the A16 purchases (up this year) with the REI dividend.

$89.98 for my refund is WAY more than I would have guessed.  I made lots of purchases but most of the stuff was returned.

$427.74.  REI Visa card, and a dog getting cancer treatment.  

BOOM.

(Although I will definitely just cash it out instead of buying gear...)

My $40 this year is a far cry from the $140 last year. Guess I'm growing up, understanding my needs more, and amazoning most of it.
