Thank you for shopping online at Big 5 Sporting Goods. We appreciate your business and want to make sure you have a rewarding experience while shopping with us.
The easiest way to check the status of your order is by using our Order Status page. There you can check the latest status of an order by simply entering your Order ID number and associated billing zip code for the order you wish to track. You may also take advantage of tracking all of your recent orders by becoming a registered user and using the Order History feature when you sign in to your account page.
You will also receive emails that will keep you up to date on the status of your order. These emails will be sent to the email address provided during checkout.
Please note that update notifications will typically take a few minutes to process after your order is received.
Here is a quick guide to explain the most common order statuses:
Submitted – Your order has been successfully placed and is on its way to being processed.
Processing – We are assembling your order and packaging it for shipment.
Shipped – The carrier has picked up the package and is in route to delivery
Online purchases can be made using any valid U.S. issued Visa, MasterCard, Discover, JCB, or American Express credit card. Debit cards may be accepted if they function as one of our accepted credit cards. PayPal and Visa Checkout accounts linked to a valid U.S. billing address are also accepted. Currently gift cards may only be used as payment for in-store purchases and gift cards may not be used as payment for online purchases.
Big 5 may feature coupons and promotional (“promo”) codes that can be redeemed towards discounts on qualifying purchases. In-store coupons cannot be redeemed on the Site. Promo codes which are applicable toward online purchases can be entered in the “Got a Promo Code?” section found on the Cart and Payment pages. Please be sure to copy and paste the codes exactly as they appear, as the codes are case sensitive. If your order qualifies for that promotion, then you will see the discount reflected in your cart. Note that only one entered promo code can be applied to an order. Thus, if you enter multiple promo codes, then only the last-entered promo code will be applied. See all promotion disclaimers.
In accordance with applicable law, Big 5 Sporting Goods collects sales tax (if any) on orders based on the shipping address. You will be notified of the initial estimated sales tax amount during checking out. However, depending on the date shipped, and other applicable laws, you may ultimately be charged a different sales tax amount than the initial estimated sales tax amount, in which event your initial estimated charges will be adjusted to reflect the updated sales tax amount.
The Big 5 Sporting Goods League Loyalty program is only applicable to in-store purchases and does not apply to online purchases. Additional information is available on our League Loyalty Page.
If you wish to cancel an order that has not been processed yet, then please contact our customer service department at (800) 898-2994. If your order has not been processed, then a customer service representative may cancel it for you, in which event we will send you an email confirmation and any charge associated with the canceled order will be dropped. Please note that our goal is to process and ship all orders as quickly as possible. Thus, your available time to cancel an order may be limited.
If an issue results in our failure to fulfill your complete order, then we may cancel the order. Such issues may include, but are not limited to, complications with item availability, limitations on quantity, payment processing, or pricing errors. If an issue like this does occur and your order is canceled, then we will send you an email notification, and any charge associated with the canceled order will be dropped. We reserve the right to limit the quantities of any items purchased.

Our shipping and handling charges take into consideration typical costs associated with processing orders, handling and packaging products, and delivering them. Due to the variable nature of such costs and the flat rate (or stepped rate) nature of our charges, in certain instances our actual costs for a particular order may vary from the shipping and handling charges applied to your order.
The risk of loss and title for items purchased by you pass to you upon our delivery of the items to the carrier.
We do not ship to international addresses, international freight forwarders, APO, FPO, or territories.
Big 5 Sporting Goods is dedicated to offering you the best prices for quality sporting goods gear, outdoors gear, and other products. These prices may vary in our online and retail stores and are subject to change without notice. While our goal is to prevent any error in posted product and pricing information, these errors may still occur. In the event of such an error, Big 5 reserves the right to cancel any order containing these errors at its sole discretion. If your order is canceled, then we will send you an email to the email address that you provided at checkout. Items in your shopping cart reflect the current price displayed on the item's product details page. Please note: This price may differ from the price displayed when the item was first placed in your shopping cart. If an item you have purchased is reduced in price within 30 days of your order date, we will happily adjust the sale price for you upon your request. Please note that we can only make one sale adjustment per item and such adjustment cannot be combined with other offers not in effect at the time of adjustment.
Big 5 offers a store locator tool to help you locate one of our nearby retail stores which may have the product displayed in stock. Because our store inventory is always changing, the stock status information is approximate and an item's availability cannot be guaranteed. To verify availability, please call the store and reference the SKU number displayed above the product title.
Items which display an orange “Add to Cart” button after choosing a color and size combination are available in stock and available for purchase online at that time, according to our records.
