REI Members (YMMV): 10% promotional bonus on GoPro Hero 4 (in addition to 10% dividend)

If you are an REI member and you have received an email invitation for this promotion and you are also interested in getting either one of the GoPro Hero 4 Black cameras for $500 or one of the GoPro Hero 4 Silver cameras for $400, REI will match your 10% dividend with a 10% promotional reward as part of a limited time promotion (this page has all the details). Offer ends 3/25/15.

Here is an example: you pay $500 for the Go Pro 4 Hero. You receive a 10% (= $50) annual REI dividend as usual. With this promotion, you also receive a 10% (= $50) single-use promotional gift card from REI. This promotional gift card will be emailed 4/10/15 and must be used between 4/14 and 5/12 in 2015.

NOTE #1: this offer is only available to paying REI members who have received email or other invitations to join in.

NOTE #2: REI membership is for life and you only pay once, a one time fee of $20. Not an annual subscription! With a 10% annual dividend on your purchases, if you make a big ticket purchase or shop there frequently, it pays for itself.

NOTE #3: I don’t know if every REI member has received an email about this promotion, that’s why I put YMMV in the title. I have no way of checking that.
