Backcountry.com is a wonderful site for that hardcore outdoor enthusiast. They have products available Adults and Children for activities that range from Climbing to Snowboarding. Chase is currently offering four points per dollar spent at Backcountry. From the Backcountry.com site:
Backcountry.com is an online retailer of high-end outdoor gear, featuring the best products from the industry’s top brands, including The North Face, Patagonia, Marmot, Oakley, Rossignol, K2, and almost 1,000 others.
Backcountry.com resulted from a series of brainstorming sessions in which the site’s founders, Jim Holland and John Bresee, were trying to figure out a link between a love of backcountry skiing and making money on the Internet. After extensive research (and tons of backcountry skiing), they determined that it really was possible to sell outdoor gear online.
Backcountry.com was founded in 1996 with a $2,000 out-of-pocket (literally) investment. Backcountry.com has enjoyed sustained growth every year since. Over the past 14 years, Backcountry.com has expanded, adding a slew of focused, niche online stores (four full retail, one closeout, and 5 one-deal-at-a-time or ODAT stores) in the outdoor, action sports and bike industries.
Backcountry.com and its sister sites now sell nearly 1,000 brands and see an average of 13 million unique visitors each month.
At this time, Chase is the only one currently offering points when shopping at Backcountry. As shown, the prices are actually pretty decent. Even for a high end company. I definitely wouldn’t mind shopping here for my child and I to get involved with more outdoor activities.
