GAP/BR/ON/Piper Lime - Friends & Family
GAP is having a fantastic Friends & Family promotion this week
When: 11/13 - 11/16/08
Where: Online or in store: Gap, Gap Outlet, Banana Republic, Banana Republic Factory Stores, Old Navy and Piper Lime
I am a Banana Republic LUXE customer, but did not receive notification in the mail. I saw it somewhere online. I've just emailed GAP to ask if I can be put on the email. No response and I wouldn't expect until tomorrow. I called GAP customer service to ask to be put on the list. The woman asked if I have a friend or family member that works for GAP. I said no. She said it's for FAF only.
I already got on the list as the guest of someone else. However, I want the capability to be able to share the savings with others. I'm hoping they'll put me on the list. If so, I'll update this post and ask for your emails so I can send it out. The way the coupon words is there is an in-store barcode at the bottom. The coupon can be used multiple times, in-store, for the duration of the promo. This means you can hit the mall for BR and GAP and on another day try the outlets if you like. I don't see ON Factory store mentioned, so I don't know if they are accepting it. It would be odd if they're not.
The same code can be used ONCE online. GAP has one check out online. So you can shop the 4 stores and pay for everything after putting in the 30% off code. The savings is great because it's usable on Piper Lime. It's very rare to see a 30% code for that branch of the company. What's extra cool is that 5% of each sale will be donated to the sender's charity of choice.
Here is the legalese copied from the promo:
