Question for thread,
I need to buy about $400 worth of stuff from Gap (or BR), no Gap/BR card and I didn't get one of those visa offer coupons. So no coupons, basically. I need some jeans from Gap and those are hardly ever marked down ($70 retail).

These days both stores have 30% off every day, or 25-40% off one full price item etc. but they exclude cashmere and denim.

For those that buy a lot at Gap and BR what is the best strategy to save money at this point, should I wait until Jan and they will mark the list price down on everything and then apply the daily 30% off? Or are there some other coupons lurking around that I can stack without a BR card? tia!

don't know about GAP but for BR best deal so far is 40% + 40% + 10% (OOS codes) + 10% (cashback via discover). They havven't been sending out 40% coupons lately... used to do that every wednesday.
Your best bet would be to wait for the 40% to come back and if they had a 30% promo next day to stack. But you have to place the order between 1AM - 3AM EST. The 40% codes are usually active till 3AM Thursday so if they had a 30% promo for Thursday starting at midnight..it might stack.

Didn't I mention in this thread that the coat had a nice fit and that I owned it? Shame on you for listening to those tools on the br site. Half of them complain about the pockets being sewn shut laugh out loud
No biggie tho -- just swap in store.

thats a great piece of information- I'm pretty sure a lot of these double dip opportunities are going to be available over the holiday week. Christmas is a tuesday, so not in the typical thurs-thrus promo window, but I wouldn't be surprised to see something on weds (26th) that could stack with whatever they had for 25th.

They have a 40% off 2 rugular items now, but you mean the 40% off the whole store right? I don't remember that happening recently. 2 items doesn't do much for me, I like BRs t-shirts but 2 of those don't add up to 50 for the free shipping.

repped, thanks

I am too concerned about swapping for sizes in store, given that they practically screamed at me for just asking if the 40+40 would stack last week.

It was a home mailer that had 2 cards in it, one for 1 December, 1 for 8 December. 40% off all full priced items if you paid w/Visa.

I paid mostly with GC and pretty much just the tax on the visa and it still took off the 40%.

I just realized that it's best to wait until the day after Xmas for best deals at BR. I walked past BR store and realized they were having a 40% off. It was a Wednesday so I thought it was just one of those regular 40% off full priced item promos. But then I read further and the sign said it was for EVERYTHING in store! So I had to do a detour that day and ended up buying stuff!

Anyway, sInce I work in the mall, the next day I saw their sign and this time it says "50% off on sale items"! So I was ticked because I could have saved 10% more on the already reduced items I bought the day before. I didn't have my receipt but I was hoping that they'd still have the 50% off for next day which they still did and the cashier adjusted the price of my items. Slick!

I think they have this annual 50% off right after Christmas day until New Years eve to get rid of old inventory and make way for new ones. It's also a last ditch effort for Gap Inc. to pad their revenues before the end of the year.

I have been buying stuff at BR and Gap for as far as I can remember but never bothered to get myself a BR card. And it's also now that I only realized that they do these kind of sales after Xmas. Something to keep in mind. How does one qualify for the BR Lux card? Do I get some sort of bonus for signing up? I have so many CC already and I look out for the 5% CB on clothing stores but that category rarely comes along nowadays. A 10% off extra on sale items from a BR card is better but I think it only works in-store.
