Kathmandu eBay Sales
Kathmandu has a very big and easy-to-navigate eBay store, and usually, whenever a big event is running at Kathmandu, it will also run on eBay.
Perks of shopping at the Kathmandu eBay store include free shipping with eBay Plus memberships, and the ability to apply relevant sales codes to reduce sale prices even further - this could range from 5% to 20%!
Usually, when a big store promotion is running at Kathmandu, you will find the same deals at the eBay Store, and the two biggest opportunities for high discounts are the end-of-year and mid-year sales.

The Summit Club is Kathmandu's customer membership program, and while it's not free for everyone, it does give you access to some excellent deals that are exclusive to Summit Club members, as well an on-going 20% discount on full-priced stock all year. You can also earn points that are put towards a voucher.

Change-of-mind returns are made at Kathmandu's discretion, and bear in mind that base layer products (underwear etc) are not able to be returned due to hygiene reasons.
