Frequent Hiker Program - The more you hike the more you save!

Where?

North Cascades National Park, WA

Earning Credits

For every half week trip (5 days or less) you take and pay for, you bank $50


For every 1 week trip (9 days or less) you take and pay for, you bank $100


For every 2 week trip (10 days or more) you take and pay for, you bank $150


Every trip you have taken in the past counts towards your bankroll and can be used towards your next trip


Your bankroll never gets smaller, even after using your credits


Fitpacking is still small enough to keep track of your bankroll, however we are working on user accounts to keep track of these things.

Using Credits


For every half week trip you book, you can discount your next trip by the amount of your credit, up to a maximum of $250 off


For every 1 week trip you book, you can discount your next trip by the amount of your credit, up to a maximum of $500 off


For every 2 week trip you book, you can discount your next trip by the amount of your credit, up to a maximum of $700 off


Your credit only increases. It does not decrease after applying it towards a trip


If you pay by credit card, you will automatically receive your discount even though the shopping cart may be too stupid to indicate the discount


If you pay by PayPal, you will be charged full price, but receive a refund


Discounts are not retroactive to trips you have taken in the past


Credits cannot be used for a stay-in-a-lodge trip (even though no such trips are currently scheduled). However you still bank credits for taking such a trip.

Where?

Heart Lake, Olympic National Park, WA

Example

You hiked the Olympic Trip in 2007 (2 weeks), Shenandoah in 2009 (2 weeks), Florida in 2010 (1 week), Hot Springs in 2014 (1 week) and Dolly Sods in 2015 (half week). Your credit is $150+$150+$100+$100+$50 = $550


If you book the 2-week Yellowstone 2016 trip, you can deduct $550, so your total cost is $1925 - $550 = $1375, and you have raised your credit to $550 + $150 = $700.


If you decide instead to book the 1-week Arches National Park Trip in 2016, you can only deduct the maximum of $500, making your total cost $1275 - $500 = $775, and you have increased your credit to $550 + $100 = $650.

Refer-A-Friend Program - The more your friends hike the more you save!

Where?

Your Friend

The friend can be a friend or relative or just about anyone.


The friend must be someone who has had no previous communication with Fitpacking, including but not limited to e-mail, phone, Facebook or Twitter


When your friend signs up for their trip, they must put your name in the “Referred By” field.


Your friend must pay for their trip in full, although if they happen to take advantage of another applicable discount such as a 3-day sale, that is considered paying in full.


Your friend must take their trip either before you receive your discount, or concurrent with the trip in which you take your discount.

You

This promotion is only open to Fitpacking alumni: Participants who have already paid for and taken a trip


If your friend takes a 2 week trip, you receive $150 credit. If your friend takes a 1 week trip, you receive a $100 credit. If your friend takes a half week trip, you receive a $50 credit.


Your Refer-a-Friend credit can be used in addition to your Frequent Hiker Bonus.


You can use as many Refer-a-Friend credits as you want. If 3 friends take 1 week trips, you will receive $300 off your next trip


If you refer enough friends to amass credits that are greater than the cost of your trip, Fitpacking will not pay you any difference. However, you can carry over these credits to another trip


You can use your credit on the same trip your friend participates in, or one after, but not before they participate.


When you sign up, you must let Fitpacking know how much of your credit you’d like applied to your trip.
