Rewards Program Terms and Conditions
Last updated January 1st, 2020
Opting-in to Moosejaw Rewards:
All users must accept these terms and conditions and create an account with Moosejaw to opt-in to the program and earn, accrue, retain and redeem Moosejaw Reward Dollars (MJ$). The program is FREE to join and membership is ongoing until or unless the user requests to be removed or is removed due to abuse of the program. Users can opt-in to the program while checking out on Moosejaw.com or at one of our stores or at any time within 30 days of purchase to accrue the MJ$ earned on that purchase. Once opted-in to the program, MJ$ will earn and accrue for redemption as described below until the MJ$ expire or the user leaves the program.
All information collected and used to facilitate the Moosejaw Rewards program is directly related to the program's ability to provide value to the customer. A customer opting-in to the Moosejaw Rewards program is a separate action from establishing a user profile as a result of making a purchase.
The program opt-in requirement was added on August 6th, 2019. Existing program members prior to that date must still formally opt-in and accept the terms and conditions to continue to retain, earn and redeem MJ$. Pre-existing program members that fail to opt-in prior to June 28, 2020 will be removed from the program, and any unused MJ$ will be voided. We really, really don't want to that to happen, so please opt-in or we'll feel terrible.
Leaving Moosejaw Rewards Program:
You may choose to leave the Moosejaw Rewards program at any time by logging in and clicking on the “Opt out Rewards Program” link within the My Account Summary page, Email, calling 877-MOOSEJAW (877-666-7352) or in-store with help from our employees. If you leave the rewards program, any unused MJ$ will be voided upon completion of your request.
All items we sell are eligible with the exception of gift cards or other items specifically noted. Full-priced items earn 10% back while discounted items earn 2.5%. "Discounted items" includes items on sale or discounted via coupon code or use of MJ$. You do not earn MJ$ for shipping or tax charges, only from the item value. MJ$ expire two years after earning and are redeemed on a first-in, first out basis (in other words, we always use your oldest MJ$ that are closest to expiration).
Checking & Redeeming MJ$:
On Moosejaw.com, just sign-in on any page to see your available balance. Once signed in, you will see your available MJ$ and maximum that can be redeemed in the payment section of the checkout process. In stores, provide the email address attached to your account to learn your balance and apply to your purchase. We will also send you a monthly email that details your balance and other account activity. This is a transactional email that you will receive even if you are not subscribed to our marketing emails.
Bonus Rewards Promotions:
Every so often, we'll have special offers where you can earn bonus MJ$, like an additional 10%, 20% or 40% back. So if we are running a 50% back special offer, and you buy a regular-priced item for $100.00, you will receive MJ$10.00 in base points, and a bonus of MJ$40. These special offers may have a cap on how many bonus MJ$ you earn during the promotion, but you will always earn the base Reward Dollars. Make sure to check us out on our social channels for other ways to win some extra MJ$!
MJ$ on Gift Cards:
You don't get earn MJ$ when you buy a gift card, but you do get MJ$ when you spend a gift card. Sorry gift givers. You're welcome gift receivers.
Product Returns and MJ$:
If you return an item, we deduct the MJ$ earned on that item from your balance. If you used the MJ$ and your balance is less than deduction, then your refund is reduced by the difference.
The intent of the program is to provide our loyal customers with a way to buy great gear for less. Moosejaw reserves the right to remove any user from the program and zero out their MJ$ balance if Moosejaw determines that the user is abusing the program by buying for resale, attempting to game the program or any other reason at Moosejaw's sole discretion.
Are you Sure?
Our Rewards Program is completely FREE and easy to use.
By opting out, you forfeit all the Moosejaw Rewards Dollars your currently have in your account, which is basically throwing away free money. What would your grandmother say about that? If you're 100% sure, please click "OptOut" below.
You must use code CLIMBALOT to take the 20% off one full-priced item.

Load bearing climbing equipment, like a harness or carabiner, is final sale by law so if you don't like your climbing stuff just hang it on your wall to impress your friends - sorry for being so mean about it.
We want to make extra-sure you realize that you've added a special order item to your cart. These items take a little longer to get to you because we have to order from the manufacturer first.

Former high schooler, now College Junior from
Extremely durable[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought my first Jester booksack in 2016, and today, in 2022, literally everything has held up but the left strap's fabric has broken off the top of the backpack (it's still solidly attached to the backpack, but the threads at the top wore off revealing the foam underneath. This backpack has withstood 6 years of rough handling at school and travel. I tend to be rough with my backpack, swinging it off my shoulder and throwing it down slightly aggressively sometimes. So the fact that it has held up for six whole years and only the strap is partially broken (it's still completely functional and there are no holes anywhere) is simply remarkable. It's withstood years of rain and snow, getting soaked and everything, yet the zippers and the fabric have held up perfectly. It holds my laptop and all the notebooks I needed. Whenever I traveled, due to the squarish nature of my backpack, I was able to pack 3-4 days' worth of clothes along with my toiletries, my makeup, and my laptop, despite it being a tight fit. This backpack gets past airport security smoothly as well. Never had a problem with it, even in Europe where they tend to be stricter in airports. I could have sewn the strap back on and used it like new, but I decided to buy a new Jester and retire the old one since it's been 6 years. I will keep the old one just in case, but I'm a lifelong fan of this backpack!

Its Okay[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have this same backpack in a different color and I love it. I was going to get a new one in a different color, but I guess the design has changed, because this one is so much smaller. It also has one less big compartment and it doesn't have as much room in the front pocket as before. The design is super cute, it just can barely hold a binder, let alone textbooks.

Truthful person from
No good but not the worst[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Not as roomy as you think. Everything falls out the front pocket if you don't close it every single time. It sits weird when the main pocket is empty and the small pocket is full. Shoulder straps are good but other than that not much. Def not worth the price. I carry around 4 book and my laptop. Some pen, pens, highlighters, small stapler and laptop charger and its JAM PACKED. The small pocket also takes up room inside the big pocket when full so you REALLY dont have any room.

Perfect backpack for a light load![This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This backpack is very well made and feels like it will last a very long time. The straps are comfortable and the zipper opens and closes smoothly. I will say that the front pocket is smaller than expected, it is only half as deep as the larger back pocket. However, the front pocket does have smaller compartments that allow for organization of small items (e.g. pens, airpods, etc). I am also a bit disappointed in how small the side pockets are. My 21 oz hydroflask water bottle barely squeezes in the pocket, although the pocket has stretched a tiny bit since I've had it. Overall, this backpack works well for me since I mainly use it to transport my laptop and tablet with a few miscellaneous items. It is cute and high quality. However, if you are looking for something with a lot of storage space, you may want a larger bag.

Colorful, engaging and intriguing[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The color and style is eye catching. My daughter loved this pack from the moment she laid eyes on it. She was able to fit all of her items in the backpack. It is worth the money. Also, it stands easily and does not fall down. She's loves it because its so functional.

Reduces back pain but isn't as functional as I hoped[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I got this backpack because of the padded straps and back panel. I needed a chiropractic backpack for high school because my Jansport backpack wasn't cutting it. To give you an idea, with 2-3 textbooks, 7 binders, 4 folders, a computer and its charger, a notebook, a reading book, etc. my Jansport backpack weighted ~30lbs and I could fit additional items including gym shoes, gym clothes, snacks, and loose school supplies. It was so heavy that I was having back problems. I have to say, the Jester backpack is very comfortable and the weight of what I can carry now is tolerable. I am happy with its simplicity but the back support is the only reason why I'm keeping it. I can fit a Chromebook, 2 textbooks, 7 thin plastic folders, 1 notebook, and one reading book in the main compartment. I can't use any binders for AP classes because they don't fit. I will have to bring a lunch box and gym bag separately to school, which is exactly what I wanted to avoid. As a busy student who takes everything to and from home every day, I need all of my supplies in one space. There are design flaws as well. Due to the small front compartment for loose knickknacks like pens, there is more weight on the top of the backpack. This means that 1) the main compartment is harder to access because of its bulkiness, and 2) with both compartments unzipped, the front one will fold over and all of my contents will spill out because the mesh pockets are too short and loose. That being said, I like the zippers. They are quality and I knew when I received the bag that the zippers were going to last a long time. There isn't any zipper cover that's going to get stuck or caught. I also like the laptop sleeve, but unfortunately it doesn't fit my older 15" long Chromebook. However, 13" computers will fit perfectly. I like the double water bottle pockets as well. I cannot emphasize enough how comfortable this backpack is carrying between classes. Unfortunately, it is not as useful as I hoped and am going to have to look for something bigger next year. If you are looking for something that will hold the entire amount of contents I mentioned regarding my old Jansport backpack, please look at the Patagonia Refugio 30L!
