Reply Back ( or ) Reply :

“Reply back” is redundant because “reply” already conveys the idea of getting back to someone.

The same is true of “answer back” except in the rather old-fashioned use of the phrase to describe the behavior of a lippy kid rudely refusing to submit to the wishes of parents or teachers.
