Groupon is pulling out all the stops. Today only, Thursday 8/19, get a $50 Gap Gift Certificate for $25!  This is good across the country in any Gap store excluding outlets.  You have until 11/19 to use your certificate.

There is a limit of 1 per person, and it can’t be combined with any other discount (Gap Rewards, Employee, or Friends & Family).   It is good on sale merchandise!!

I’ve been told this deal will not  sell out, so it will be available all day.  However, Groupon is expecting this to significantly test their servers so if you find the site slow or down just keep trying!

Update: Many of you are emailing that you can buy 1 per city, so order and then try another location.  They are good still at any store.

    • If you are on Swagbucks, you can take advantage of a special offer on the TrialPage wall to earn 360 swagbucks for buying a $25 Groupon gift certificate. The code is sent instantly, so you can use it to take advantage of this deal. 360 swagbucks leaves you pretty close to a $5 Amazon.com giftcard for buying something you were going to buy anyways!

      • Mom2teenagers

        Thanks. They must have been inundated with this offer because they only offered 160 SBs when I ordered. Better than nothing!

        • Anita

          Did you get your swagbucks? Mine never showed up.

          • Mom2teenagers

            I have not received my SB's either. I went to their help link and it states it can take up to 30 days for those to show up.

      • Lisasanford

        I went through swagbucks and my bucks didn't show up. Did yours show up instantly.

    • Cemberz2112

      I've never used this website before and it seems strange. So I'm basically paying $25 for a $25 off a $50 purchase coupon that I print out, right?

      • Mandy

        No! It's like buying a $50 gift card for half price! You are actually getting $50 for $25!!

        • Cemberz2112

          So they mail you a $50 gift card?

          • Mandy

            No, you print out your gift certificate. This is how it works – enough people have to purchase the deal for everyone to get it. Once the amount of buyers has been reached, they will send you an email for you to print out your gift certificate.

            • Sam

              I don't get the impression that this, even though it says “GIFT CARD” is like a gift card that you could use for one purchase at a time. It's harder for me to spend $50 all at once. I guess you could buy things and then return them for merchandise credit later. Does anyone know for sure?

            • Mandy

              Right, Sam. You cannot use for multiple transactions…It's a one time only thing, or you lose some value. You have until Nov 19 to use the certificate, so you will only want to use once you are ready to buy $50 worth of items. Make sense?
              I would assume that anything that you buy can be returned, just like with any other gift card, but that is an assumption…

          • Tfrost99

            Mandy is right. I just got my confirmation that my city reached their minumum limit of purchases for the Gap certificate and I immediately received an email with a link to print my certificate. I printed it and it states $50 Groupon to Gap.

            Meaning it's like a $50 gift certificate to Gap. It can be used on sale items in Gap, Baby Gap, and Kid Gap. There are a few restrictions like it can't be used on strollers, and Robeez, or combined with another coupon.

            Also, you have until 11/19 to use it but if you don't you can still use it for purchase value ($25) up to the time limit on gift certificates/cards in your state. I think VA is 1 year. So, you at least won't lose your money.

    • Dana

      Look like a great deal, but you cannot use it online…in store only.

    • Barbara

      NOTE: It also cannot be used at OUTLET stores…which is where I do most of my shopping.

    • Michelle

      The only GAP store near me is an outlet store, so I wouldn't be able to use it. Bummer!

      • Amt1218

        I would imagine you could use it to buy online on their website. :)

        • Amt1218

          NEVERMIND! It says you CANNOT use it online! :/

    • Mtalley2

      Does anyone know if this certificate can be used at Old Navy or Banana Republic?

      • Amt1218

        I wouldn't think so.. I believe it would say if you could do that.

    • Lbenjamin1349

      I went to the site, but could not find where to buy it…am new to Groupon…help?!

      • Tfrost99

        I'm not sure where you live, but I'm fairly new to the site also and found it under my city – washington, DC – Northern VA. I think it's under most cities though. If you choose your city and then deal of the day you should see it. Let us know if it works.

        • Lbenjamin1349

          I tried again…but server is overloaded. Oh well!! Thanks though for trying to help me :)

    • just a heads up that in the “rules” it says that it MUST be used in a single visit (i.e. transaction) and isn't valid @ outlets. :)

    • acpack

      Did anyone else notice this in the fine print, “The value of the merchandise purchased must be at least $50.”? Bummer.

      • Cindyrella

        It's a $50 certificate, so how is that a bummer?

        • acpack

          Oops…was thinking it was $25…early here, still. Sorry! Thanks!

      • Tfrost99

        Why does that bum you out? Were you hoping to be able to use it over more than 1 visit?

    • tarheelbaby1

      Groupons are awesome! I've been buying them for various things for about six months and have not been disappointed. This is an awesome deal!

    • Shlly565

      first timer here. I pressed confirm order after entering credit card info immediately went back to home page no confirmation that my order went though or how I would get order please help

    • savysaver

      So they will send me an email with the certificate, right? My first time using groupon.

      • ireneY

        Yes, an email that contains a link to print the certificate. I've used a couple of others with no trouble.

    • wendyc33

      i just signed and put my credit card info in, and clicked submit. and then an error came up. I dont know if my order went through or not. This bothers me. and if i do this all over again will they charge me twice? a bit leary of this now.

    • Jamie

      Does anyone know if this can be used at Baby Gap??

      • Hzipfel

        I looked at the details and it said yes to Baby GAP and Kids GAP

    • zaxmom2008

      The site must be getting overloaded…I can't print it…

    • Amt1218

      The site seems to be down at the moment. If you put in your email address they will send you an email when its available again. :/

    • ireneY

      Anyone been to a Gap store recently? Wondering if all the summer sale stuff is gone by now.

    • Kemccarthy

      Wants you to put in your city, but mine (columbia, sc) is not listed… What to do, hmmm

      • Kemccarthy

        Never mine, in the bottom left corner of where the cities are listed I found (city not listed?) and then walked me right through it. Just got mine, but wont receive email confirmation for a few days because of high demand. Thanks for the awesome deal…

    • Obxagee

      Anyone know how to redeem a credit you have with groupon? I have never used it before?

      • tarheelbaby1

        Groupon just automatically applies the credit to your amount due. You don't have to do anything.

    • Fhoyda

      I bought mine this morning around 8 AM and have still not received my e-mail. However, the transaction is listed on my online banking, so I know it went through. Anyone else not getting their e-mail yet?

      • NCcouponer

        Yes, I bought mine about an hour ago and I haven't received an email. When I look under my groupons purchased, it does say that it is pending.. It's never taken this long for me to get the email.. The site is wayy overloaded.

        • stephanie

          When I bought mine it said because of the high demand it will take longer to mail out your certificate. Probably wont be sent until Saturday or Sunday.

          • tarheelbaby1

            Same for me. I purchased around 8am and the groupon is showing as pending under “My Account” but I haven't received an email. They are dealing with tremendous volume so it will probably just take awhile.

            • tarheelbaby1

              It's almost 12 hours later now, and mine is still showing as “processing” in My Groupon list.

    • Debby

      I just tried to log into my account and it says the site is down due to high volume :(

    • Jenn

      Still down. They said to leave your email and they'll inform you when it's back up.

    • Amy

      I had better luck getting through to the site from my email that Groupon sent me. It uses a different address so this may be why. Anyhow try to link up that way if you get the Groupon e-mails.

    • Itchin2bstitchin

      When I went to the first link it said the page is down and to input my email address, but the link that says just keep trying worked the first time. :-)

    • Deanna

      Can you use the Gap gift card at baby gap, old navy, and banana republic too?

    • Aprilc632003

      3% back through Ebates…

    • Lizfreeman3

      Sorry, first time with Groupon… I live in Jacksonville, NC and my nearest Groupon city is about 200 miles away. Can I use the Raleigh Groupon in another city?

    • Jenn

      Seems to be working now. It went through for me.

    • guest

      Thanks for this! I hadn't gotten that far in my email yet and would've missed this deal and been kicking myself!

    • Jodielynn23

      I've gotten my email from groupon, and it keeps saying there's some kind of error. Is it just my computer, or is anyone else having the same problem? The page came up in Acrobat Reader, but when it prints, a clean sheet comes through the printer. Nothing actually prints. Also, it looks so simple, unless it's not all coming up on my screen. There's no bar code, confirmation number or anything on it. Is that normal? I've never done groupons before, and I'm just worried. Thanks!

      • Jennifermathis24

        i got the same thing “invalid path inside”… did you ever get yours to print? If so, how?

    • 2godbglory

      Does anyone know if you have to use the coupon at any Gap in any city? I live near Gainesville FL and bought through Jacksonville closest one? Thanks

      • Bersingerj

        You can use it at any location as long as it isnt an outlet.. Enjoy!
