Easiest way to do it is sync them to your iCloud, then download them. You can export to a .vcf that Outlook can import.

Just go to the iPhone settings (gear icon) and select your name at the top, then select iCloud, and you'll see the option to turn on Contacts. In the Contacts screen, hit the gear icon and you can export to a VCF.

Hi,

The contacts are already set to backup, but it doesn't backup this group, so they aren't on the icloud.

Turn off the Contacts option, then turn it back on and see if it gives you a Merge option.

Are the contacts from an Exchange account?

This didn't work. I found an app in the app store that synched them to the account that I wanted. It was called Contacts Mover.
