Banana Republic Visa Spending Offer 2017
I have written before about the Banana Republic Visa card. It carries no annual fee and on the surface doesn’t have much benefit if you don’t shop often at GAP Brands stores. But dig a little deeper and there are some amazing targeted spending offers that surface.
After receiving some decent offers early last year, I have been on a bit of a dry spell with the card lately. There were no offers over the holidays and I had sort of given up hope. Then, I received this in my email:
This is great news. Basically I can earn 200 points ($2 in rewards) for each purchase outside of their brands up to $50. Since I don’t EVER make purchases inside of their brands this works well. The way I see it, 25 X $.50 Amazon gift card purchases will net me $50 in credit. Not bad at all!
A Better Offer
While I was excited to see my offer (and now have hope of future better offers), my excitement was shortlived when I saw what they gave PF Digest. He is earning 5X points on Gas, Groceries, Dining and Costco! They must just like him better than me. 🙁
The Banana Republic Visa card is one of the better ones with targeted spending offers. While I didn’t get the best offer possible, I’ll take $50 of free store credit any day and I’ll hope for something even better in February!
