Does REI Accept Backorders & Preorders?

REI will ship your item(s) as soon as REI receives them in our warehouse. Please keep in mind that the arrival date is an estimated time frame and subject to change.

REI cannot guarantee that a backorder will be filled. If the backordered item is no longer available, REI will cancel the item from your order and notify you via e-mail.  

Both backorder and preorder items automatically cancel if it takes REI more than 30 days to send them. REI can extend that 30-day window if you call 1-800-426-4840 and ask REI to.  

REI will not charge your credit card for either type of purchase until the item ships.
