I am completely stealing this from the backpacker forums…. Thanks to BBK302
40% off at http://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 "2×6-1-2BSWR"
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.Feb 27, 2009 at 9:05 am #1481211

Error message using IE.Feb 27, 2009 at 9:10 am #1481213
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.Feb 27, 2009 at 9:13 am #1481215
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:

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.Feb 27, 2009 at 11:16 am #1481243
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.Feb 27, 2009 at 11:46 am #1481258

Thanks for the heads up, just saved a bundle on a Montbell sleeping bag.Feb 27, 2009 at 11:50 am #1481260

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!Feb 27, 2009 at 11:51 am #1481261

Bet it's fixed shortlyFeb 27, 2009 at 12:06 pm #1481270
I am still debating getting the Exos 58 for $130 ($219 originally!)Feb 27, 2009 at 12:13 pm #1481275
I just tested it and it's coming up as invalid redemption code now.Feb 27, 2009 at 12:18 pm #1481278
@martycLocale: Industrial Midwest
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.

To the guy who got the code rescinded…thanks a lot!
Didn't get anything before they took it back.Feb 27, 2009 at 1:09 pm #1481294

never mind, it would have been dicovered sooner or later
saved me spending anything I guess……Feb 27, 2009 at 1:17 pm #1481297

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.Feb 27, 2009 at 1:25 pm #1481301
Still getting the invalid message….and I really want a BA Clearview pad. grrFeb 27, 2009 at 1:36 pm #1481308
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.Feb 27, 2009 at 1:38 pm #1481310
te – waParticipant
Jim, I got the same message. Now im getting the e+lite I wanted for $17, out the door.
;)Feb 27, 2009 at 1:43 pm #1481313
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.Feb 27, 2009 at 1:46 pm #1481317
I think they're offering free shipping for orders over $50 BEFORE calculating the discount- I put a Marmot ION jacket in the cart with a list price of $59 and a discounted price of $36. It shows free shipping.
On edit- I may be seeing cached info. I'm not going to order anything to confirm since I just got my paycheck and it appears "downturned".Feb 27, 2009 at 1:54 pm #1481320
Now I just need someone to send their cookie….hahaha
Yah, they've wised on. If you got it to work once (as I did), don't clear your cache or it won't work.Feb 27, 2009 at 2:12 pm #1481324
@pa_jayLocale: on the move....
Yep, same here. Tried IE and Firefox, exactly as stated. No discount. Too bad, I was about to make a really big order.
>So I called Backcountry
Sigh… Don't call up the retailer to ask about a coupon code like this. Awesome way to get it deactivated.Feb 27, 2009 at 2:58 pm #1481341
I can't it to work either but then again I am buying some sale stuff so that might be itFeb 27, 2009 at 3:11 pm #1481344

WHOOOOO-HOOOOOOO, ROB THE MAN!
(alas, even at 40% off, I'm too poor to steal, er…I mean shop)
