Here is a points deal for all you Gap (or in my case, Baby Gap) shoppers! I reserve most of my points earning for travel related credit cards, but I do have a few exceptions. My Gap Credit Card is a major one of these exceptions. Little C sports many Baby Gap outfits and we buy pretty much all of them using the Gap Credit Card. It gives you 5 points for every dollar spent in the Gap Family (Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Piperlime, and Athleta). It also gives you free alterations at Banana Republic, and once you hit Silver level by spending $800 in a calendar year you also get free shipping with no minimum. Once you get 1000 points, you are sent a $10 reward certificate in any of their stores or websites.

That is good, but what makes it great is the point bonuses they offer and the sales they have that are just for cardmembers. Both are going on right now!

First the sale…….if you use your Gap Card, you get 40% off pretty much everything at Gap and Baby Gap, even sale! I picked up basically an entire wardrobe for Little C for next spring/summer for $68.00. We love buying bigger sizes for the next couple of years when we see a good sale – great way to save cash! Most of the sale items were in the 4-5 dollar range once the discount was applied. It was amazing. The Man freaked when he saw how many items I was pulling out of the Gap sack, but his heart attack weaned when I told him the total. We literally got at least $300-400 dollars worth of stuff for $68 bucks. Crazy!

Now for the points part of it……currently they are offering double points if you have a regular Gap Card and triple points if you have a Silver Gap Card. Normally my $68 dollar trip would have netted me 340 points, but with triple points I earned 1020 points. That is just over a $10 reward just for this one shopping trip. Freaking awesome!

So, if your family wears a lot of clothing from the Gap family of stores, this is a card worth getting. There is no annual fee, so every benefit you get is basically free, assuming you pay your bill in full each month.
