Can't combine multiple gift cards
- I've used it several times
If you get multiple gift cards as a gift, don't expect to be able to order your own items. You'll have to do chat with a gear head, ask them to place an order... Then have it sit in limbo for a week, have to ask them again what the status is, and then have it ship out-- but wait, since an item is no longer in stock now you'll have to choose something else. Really lame execution, backcountry.

Do Not Purchase!
You are unable to use two different types of payment methods online. For example, I had a $200 gift card, but what I wanted to purchase came to $210, and I was not able to use my credit card in conjugation with the gift card to cover the $10 difference. This policy makes zero sense and is not customer friendly. Will not order from this website again.

Is this true Backcountry?
April 15, 2021
I have not found this to be true in the past...
April 29, 2021
Not true! I do it all the time
July 21, 2021
Hi Andrea, I'm not sure why you had an issue with this, but this is incorrect! You are not able to use multiple gift cards at this time, but you are able to use a credit card to cover any remaining balance on an order. If you have any issues, please contact a Gearhead and they can make sure you're taken care of!

I wish I read these reviews before I ordered. I too, assumed I’d order this item, and it would magically appear in my inbox. Alas, after 48 hours and nothing being lost in my spam folder, I chatted online with customer service. They sent the item, which still didn’t show anywhere in my email. After a half hour, the gift card finally showed in junk up after being resent. After finally getting the item and attempting to use it, I got an “invalid code” message, and had to chat with someone again. Ultimately, this attempt worked, but it was an awful lot of work to get a gift card delivered, not to mention, the jacket I was planning to put it towards was sold out by the time I got it. Luckily this was something I sent myself in an attempt to use a Visa gift card towards my purchase. If it was a gift, my recipient would never have seen the item. Stay away!

Horrible service. Bought 2 gift cards on Christmas, just found out one has never been sent. It is after new years! The other only got sent after I complained late Christmas day (I mistakenly assumed both would be sent at the same time) Next time I'll shop at REI!

Ordered Two, They Only Sent One!
I ordered a $100 e-gift card and a $200 e-gift card for a family member on Christmas Day. The $100 e-gift card was emailed to the recipient that day. The $200 e-gift card still has not been received, four days later, although Backcountry was more than happy to take my $300 immediately. Read the other one star reviews and note that I am not the first person to whom this has happened. Apparently Backcountry does a great job of taking your money but is less concerned about actually SENDING THE PRODUCT.

I ordered this as a gift for family. Months later, I found out the person I was gifting to never received it. I discovered I was charged, but no gift card was sent. I called customer support, and was told the recipient email ended up in the wrong field for some reason they were unclear about. I would be surprised if I made an error like that (although it's not impossible), but I'm definitely disappointed I wasn't contacted about the error despite being charged. It seems like it would be straight forward enough to detect when a gift card is ordered but it doesn't actually get sent to anyone.

This internet thing is going to take off
I ordered an eGift Card 18 hours ago, yet I haven’t gotten it yet. Every other eGift card I‘ve ordered from other retailers are delivered almost immediately.
November 28, 2020
For anyone that see this, my gift card went to my spam. I would guess David's did the same or was an incorrect email address.

Best Gift 🎁
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
One of the best and easy way to save up to getting something you really want. Also best idea. 😍

Good gift idea but can’t combine
I really like Backcountry & was excited when I got 2 gift certificates for backcountry. Was hoping to buy a pack only to learn you can only use 1 gift card per order & there’s no way to combine the gift cards. Which is a major bummer. So now I am waiting to save enough to use even just one of my gift certificates & I’m sure by the time I do have enough the pack I’ve been eyeing will be long gone 😔
November 4, 2019
Hey Kristen, give our Gearheads a call or chat via our website, and they'll be more than happy apply both of those Gift Certificates to your order!
April 19, 2019
I hope it can be use more than one egift
when I pay for my order on Steepandcheap.com,I found I only use just one egift card.
November 19, 2018
When I can't figure out what to get for my favorite outdoor enthusiast (i.e., effectively everyone I know), then I go with the gift card. It's quick for me to input their email address and then it takes care of the rest.

No one can top Backcountry
After my last review, $50 was added on and even Koly reached out to me. I purchase these for giveaways for my FB group "Maine Hiking" so it's great to have a company like Backcountry to offer these digital gift certificates. I have no intention on shopping anywhere else when it comes to online ordering for my outdoor gear.
October 8, 2018
You're the best Luke!
June 18, 2018
I'm mostly happy. My only gripe is I needed 3 $50 cards. Guess they offer nearly every other amount except $50. Haha
June 19, 2018
Hey Luke, Thanks for pointing that out! We have a ticket to fix that issue and add the $50 gift cert. You should see it live by this afternoon!

- I've put it through the wringer
Got the gift of picking out my own gear...what more could you ask for?! BTW...if you're reading reviews on gift cards you have too much time on your hands.

I gave this as a gift for last Secret Santa and was pretty awesome, very convenient and cool. Highly recommended.

Good For Moms
- I've used it several times
My mom never likes the things I buy her, but she pretends she does. Now she can buy her own stuff. Take that MOM.

Backcountry has two forms of Gift Certs. A hard card or in digital form. This is the way to go for that Millennial who live on their phone. I'd suggest printing out the email you receive after you purchase so the gift receiver at least can have something physical (slide it in a card maybe) and forward the email later on. Simply redeem online at any time! Hassle free.
October 31, 2017
Backcountry.com egift cards are a great last minute gift. They're delivered within minutes of ordering. i tend to buy them when I get promotional debit cards (think cable to signups) as I'm worried about losing the card itself, or forgetting to use it before it expires.
March 2, 2017
You know what this is man
Great way to gift the gift of gear to your buddies. My friend Sam watched my dog and he got one of these in return.
December 19, 2011
Recommend!!! Five Stars
Highly recommended: I just bought one of these as a gift for a friend. I messed up the email address and customer service was at a minimum 11 out of 10 stars in helping remedy the problem. I would not only recommend the Gift Card, but Backcountry.com for outdoor enthusiast equipment. They are awesome, have awesome products and great affiliate web sites...

Can I send the e-card to my email then print it to give as a gift to my nephew?

Why can’t I get a $75 e-gift certificate?
January 11, 2018
Can I redeem two gift certificates in the same transaction and pay off the remaining amount through credit card?
July 12, 2017
I see there isn't a $50 option for a gift certificate. In fact the gap between the $40 and $100 amount is not very accommodating. Shouldn't the customer have a choice as to the amount they wish to purchase? This isn't very customer friendly. Seems very manipulating.
January 17, 2017
I ordered a e gift certificate for my nephew, but he never received it. Is there a way I check that it went to the correct email address? Thank You! Laurie Norlander 951-204-6185

Hello. I want to try backcountry, but I don't know which ski choose, maybe someone help me? Thanks for help
April 23, 2012
Hey Darek, There are a lot of factors that go into choosing the right ski. I recommend using our "Chat Now" feature located in the upper right-hand corner of the page. This will connect you one of our knowledgable Gearheads who can get the necessary information in recommending the ski for you.

hi...do gift cards expire? i know i still have some money left on a gift card, but I'm not sure how to access it because the link i clicked on in my email doesn't work any more. thanks so much!!
November 23, 2011

Hi, Do the gift certificates work on steep and cheap?
November 30, 2010
Hey Sarah, No they do not. Only the "main sites" such as Backcountry and Dogfunk which has it's own gift certificate as well.
November 30, 2010
Nope. Will only work on our retail sites: Backcountry.com, Dogfunk.com, Realcyclist.com, HucknRoll.com, and DepartmentofGoods.com.

Hi, I am interested in purchasing a Stand...
Hi, I am interested in purchasing a Stand up Paddleboard (paddle, leash, etc.), and I was thinking about buying gift certificates over time, and using them as a sort of layaway program until I've bought enough to cover the cost of the purchases. Here's my question; say it takes me six months or so to save enough gift certificates to make the purchases, can I ensure the model I want (c4waterman standem) is still available? Thanks in advance for your time! Brooks
May 27, 2010
Nice setup!! But sorry, no, the only way to reserve an item and pull it from inventory is to purchase it.
January 7, 2010
Thank you, Angus! In itself, as a response...
Thank you, Angus! In itself, as a response so promptly made and thoughtfully sent, I continue to be grateful for and inspired by Backcountry and the community that supports it. My troubles with this Gear Certificate remain (for reasons I'll mention), but I wanted to mention that I made a purchase anyway, and regardless of the fate of a certificate I have only myself to blame for its datedness, I will continue to be a strong advocate of the Backcountry enterprise. The paper Gear Certificate issued in 2003 has an "Authorized Gear Guru" signature on it, in real ink, (name of Guru: Gilbert) and because my brother was never in Utah, I conclude that the certificate must have been sent to him in the mail - perhaps before the e-certificates became a common practice. The certificate measures about 3.75in high x 8.5in. wide, and has the logo of a mountain peak in the background, stretching the width of the card. But besides the 5-digit code, there is no further information.
January 7, 2010
That's the most positive response I've ever gotten. I'm actually so jaded that I thought you were being sarcastic at first. Given your new set of circumstances, it would seem that the protocol for gift certificates has changed since yours was issued. I'd get on Live Chat again, explain the situation again (including that you're now sure it's the right store), and maybe they can send you a new one. You'd think the old one would be on record somewhere so they could verify it. Otherwise, assuming you already tried entering the code where I told you and that didn't work, you may just have to cut your losses. Hope there wasn't too much money on the certificate (and that you can actually get to it somehow), and good luck!

I have a paper gift certificate that is...
I have a paper gift certificate that is quite old...a gift from my brother for my birthday in 2003. While the gift certificate states that it will not expire, and while there is a 5-digit code stamped on the front, I do not know how or indeed if it can be redeemed via your on-line store. I received great help from one of your staff with whom I "chatted" on-line. At the end of that conversation, I had convinced both him and myself that I had mistaken "The Backcountry Store" with Backcountry, given that the certificate listed the following website: "www.backcountrystore.com." But when, subsequently, I searched on-line for "The Backcountry Store," every search directed me to your store. And for further confirmation, I checked other details on my paper certificate: and indeed, the telephone number and location matched up exactly with yours. This leaves me wondering what to do with this "Gear Certificate"? And ultimately can it be redeemed?
January 7, 2010
When you get to checkout, look for a little link that says "Gift Certificate: Click here to redeem." I attached a photo of what that looks like; it'll be under item 5: Enter your Payment Information if you're not signed in or under item 1: Verify your Payment Information if you are. Hope that helps and hope you get your money. Excellent sleuthing work too.

Can I use a backcountry gift certificate for steepandcheap or tramdock?
October 18, 2009
Nope, I tried that. It has to be used on Backcountry, unfortunately.
October 13, 2009
Can a gift certificate be spread out over...
Can a gift certificate be spread out over several purchases? Example: If I had a $500 gift certificate, could I make five separate $100 purchases?
October 18, 2009
Absolutely. It's like store credit, you can spread it out as much as you want. I'd advise purchases no smaller than $50 though, you don't want to spend your certificate on shipping.
October 8, 2010
Also, keep in mind that you can only use ONE certificate per online order, so don't stock up on $50 certificates thinking you can use three of them on your $150 order.
January 9, 2011
I have run into the problem of stocking up on gift certificates. Ordering online did not support it. However you can jump on chat with backcountry and they will complete the order for you or even issue a brand new certificate that consolidates all your gift certificates into one.

hi, i purchased a $200 gift certificate for my son-in-law for christmas 2008. my daughter deleted the email from back country that gave him the information about his certificate and the pass word he was supposed to use to access it. can this information be sent again, or is he just out of luck and out a $200 gift certificate? thank you, cynthia

If it hasn't been redeemed and it hasn't expired, he should be fine. A Gearhead should be able to reissue the info for you; chat them up or call (800) 409-4502. Hope that helps.
