40% Off for GAP Cardmembers NOW!! (August 20-24)
As many of you know (or have figured from my previous posts), I am an online shopping aficionado. I wish that I could chalk it up to having kids and a busy schedule…but truth-be-told, it’s just so easy and fun to look (and buy). I make it into the stores pretty frequently, but the ease of online shopping and potential discounts still have their allure.
First remember, I have 3 Golden Rules to online shopping:
1) Never, NEVER buy final sale. It’s generally a mistake and a deal is never a deal if you don’t want to keep it but have to (regardless of the price).
2) Free shipping and returns, always. I’m frequently frustrated by those tricky sites that offer free shipping and “easy returns” (read: not free, just easy). The only exception to this rule is when you can return to your local brick-and-mortar establishment (even then, consider what you pay for parking).
3) Don’t keep if it’s not prefect and you don’t love it. Sometimes online purchases have a way of staying in our closets even if they’re not 100% awesome. Something about the ease of trying in your home lends itself to laziness when required to ship or return to a store. Ask yourself: “is this exactly what I’m looking for?” and “would I have bought this if I was in the store?”
With these rules in mind, for the next 4 days The GAP is offering 40% off regular-price items for cardmembers (both in-store and online). Act fast, this is a limited time offer!
Below are the items you will find currently in my shopping bag:
I continue to obsess over moto-detailing, destroyed jeans and slip-on sneakers. Lucky for me, these are trends that continue into fall this year. The jeans, in particular, are an amazing price – it seems the more destroyed the denim, the higher the price tag. And, I am so into plaid right now! The resurgance of all things 1990’s is nostalgic of my high school years…am I dating myself??
Hope you enjoy my picks and happy shopping! Please share your favorite sites, sales and tricks – I’m always eager to learn your finds. Thanks for reading! ~Jenn
