40% off at Backcountry... on 02/27/2009 09:42:00 MST Print View

I am completely stealing this from the backpacker forums.... Thanks to BBK302
------------------------------------
40% off at www.backcountry.com...

okay...here's the deal

40% off regular price for everything at backcountry.com and backcountryoutlet.com

go to backcountry.com and put anything you want in your basket. click on the outlet tab and checkout. enter promo code "2x6-1-2BSWR"

They have pretty much everything.

Their website doesn't always work with Firefox. You might have to use IE...
------------------------------------

I just picked up a few things and got it to work for me.

I had to sign into backcountry outlet.com then swithch over to backcounty, add the items and then switch back to the outlet, checkout and add the code there. I picked up a Montbell thermawrap, 2 pairs ex officio boxers, new platy tube, micropur tabs and a Petzl e+lite for $150.

The trick is exactly following instructions. You have to be on the "outlet" tab- with the URL popped over to backcountryoutlet.com when you enter the promotional code.

All items from the main backcountry.com store and the outlet get marked down to 40% off list, or the existing sale price whichever is lower.

I pasted the promotional code including hyphens and case, it worked great last night:
2x6-1-2BSWR

Thanks guys! Works now! :)

Changed my mind. :(
I noticed that they use UPS for international shipping. UPS always go through Customs. Any savings would be wiped out. USPS is the only option i use, as i have only been charged customs fees on around 20% of my orders from the US using USPS.

Not only does this work, it's legitimate as well. When I first read this, I thought that it sounded a bit dishonest. Shopping on the regular site and then checking out on the outlet site with a discount code? Come on...

So I called Backcountry and although the guy I spoke with had not heard of this, he said to go ahead and do it.

Thanks for the heads up, just saved a bundle on a Montbell sleeping bag.

I was also thinking that it must've been a mistake to let regular items get the discount. Now I can feel less guilty about saving a bundle on that ice axe I'd been wanting :)

...and my order already shipped! Wow.

Thanks for the tip!

I wonder if they'll honor the orders I sent in?
A very nice set of prices, if so.
I got an email saying my orders were confirmed.
I was about to email everyone I know until I read the last note. Alas.

Yeah, I saw that coming on 02/27/2009 14:17:18 MST Print View

I did check the site and there were a few things I could use, mostly consumables. Saved about $70. Plus no tax and no shipping.

Already got the email confirmation, so I am good to go.

Just tried it again- the code still works. Follow the instructions carefully.

I ordered last night and got a confirmation that "Your order is complete ... We know this isn't your first time. By now you're practically family, so we bumped your order to the front of the line. Your order will ship free UPS Ground. " Then I got the shipping confirmation today.

I just retried in IE and firefox thinking my IE had it cached. I get invalid code in both instances while following the directions exactly.
