Backcountry.com sale

Postby Dave B » Wed Sep 19, 2012 7:46 am

FYI

Backcountry has as coupon (enter SAVE50 at checkout) that will take any item already on sale to 50% off retail.

Sizes/styles are limited (XL's will actually have a pretty wide selection to chose from) but there are some really really nice Arc'teryx jackets on sale (Alpha LT, Alpha/Theta SV etc.) that you will almost never see for 50% off.

I picked up the Gamma MX hoody that I've been eyeing for years, but could never swallow the $340 price tag, $170's a bit easier.

Charge!

Dave,

I am trying to get the discount and I am not having any luck. Do the items have to be already on sale, like you mentioned? I tried applying the promo code on a couple of items to see if it would work and the price remains the same.

Suggestions?

Still Here
been scared and battered. My hopes the wind done scattered. Snow has friz me, Sun has baked me,
Looks like between 'em they done Tried to make me
Stop laughin', stop lovin', stop livin'-- But I don't care! I'm still here!

I have no luck either...looks like it is only for selected items which is already 50% on sale....but I couldn't find those items either...any thoughts on that or I am missing something?

Yes! Use the links from this site so Bill gets a percen

Any item that is already on sale the discount will be bumped up to 50%. It worked for me just an hour ago bumping the discount on my jacket from 25% to 50%. There is a display on the home page that should give full details.

In terms of applying the coupon, I was unable to do so with Google Chrome but succeeded when using Internet Explorer.

Also of note, the coupon is not for 50% off the discounted price, it's 50% off of the original price. Example: A $500 item is 30% of and listed for $350. When you apply the SAVE50 coupon, the price will drop to $250 not $175.

Another important note!!! Not all of a particular piece of clothing is on sale and qualifies for the 50% off. Need to sort through the long list of colors and sizes and find the piece that is on sale. Once I did this, the discount worked for me. Thanks!

There doesn't seem to be much for the little guys. S-M sizes. Oh well.
