Gap Shopping Secrets

Gap shopping secrets

Gap is the go-to store for all-American basics like blue jeans and soft t-shirts. The look is casual but put-together. Gap got its start in denim, and is still a great place to get mid-priced jeans in a wide range of washes and styles. Gap also has workout, maternity, and underwear and sleepwear divisions. Gap is the flagship company of Gap Inc., which also includes sister brands Banana Republic, Old Navy, Piperlime, and Athleta.

How to Shop at Gap

Gap stores have become ubiquitous on the American shopping scene and are found in many a local shopping mall. They are increasingly common internationally as well. Visitors to can move easily between the sister company websites and can combine their purchases in one shopping cart. Purchases from each company can be combined to add up to $50 and qualify for free shipping. Look for coupons before shopping online at Gap.

Gap Factory stores can be found in outlet malls. They sell Gap-style clothes designed and manufactured just for Gap Factory at more budget-friendly prices.

Shipping and Handling

Orders under $50 arrive in three to five business days for $7. Expedited options are more expensive. Any order of $50 or more ships free in seven to nine business days. You can combine items from Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Piperlime and Athleta to reach that $50 total. All Piperlime items ship for free in three to five business days, so adding just one Piperlime item means free shipping for the whole order.

Online purchases can be returned by mail with the prepaid return shipping label or brought to a Gap store location. Some items marked “Mail Only” cannot be returned to a store.
