Banana Republic Visa Spending Offer
Over the years the Banana Republic card has blessed me with many a great spending offers. While I have been on a bit of a dry spell with the card lately, they finally came through with yet another great deal. Let’s take a look.
Through September 30 earn 2X points per dollar spent plus earn a $50 bonus for spending $500.
- For qualifying purchases from July 1 at 12:01 am Eastern – September 30 2018 at 11:59 PM Eastern
- Account must remain open, in good standing, and not become delinquent. Points will post to account within two billing cycles of offer end date
- Not valid at Gap Inc. brands
While this apparently started July 1, I somehow missed the memo which is why I am posting this now. Make sure to search your email and perhaps look in the snail mail for an offer similar to this. I somehow missed the first email about it, but thankfully they sent a follow up!
If I spend $500 on my card, the return ends up being 12X or $60 on a $500 purchase. OF COURSE I am going to do that. While this isn’t quite uncapped like some spending bonuses before, it is a no-brainer and an easy bonus to hit with a single purchase and move on.
While I am on the subject of rewards from this card, I thought I would mention something that happened about two months back. I had $85 in rewards sitting for awhile that were going to expire. I then printed the certificates (which were valid) and my wife went to a Gap store a couple of days later to redeem them. They were already used.
Somehow someone had hacked the certificates after they were generated. I’m not sure if this is a widespread issue, but the company did easily reissue them, but it’s something to be aware of I guess. So.much.fraud.in.this.world. 🙁
If you have this card and haven’t received a targeted offer in awhile, make sure you are opted-in and don’t forget to search your email in case you missed the offer like I initially did. Even if it’s only store credit, 12X is 12X!
