1. Get Rewarded

Shop and save when you use either of this trendy brand’s credit cards: the BananaCard credit card or the Banana Republic Visa. While the BananaCard credit card is accepted in BR stores and on the BR website only, the company’s Visa can be used at any retailer or service provider location that accepts Visa cards in general.

Both the BananaCard and the Banana Republic Visa will earn you one reward point for every dollar you spend. You can also earn a $10 gift card for every $200 you spend. When you reach 1,000 points on either card, you will receive an additional $10 gift card as well.

Either the BananaCard or the Visa card will also get you free shipping on all your orders at Banana Republic. Normally free shipping requires a minimum $50 order, although free two-day shipping is occasionally offered.

As a BR card holder you’ll also receive valuable members-only coupons that provide savings such as percentage-off discounts on certain items or categories, or dollar-off discounts on purchases that reach minimum order amounts. You even receive 15% off sitewide on a future order simply for signing up for the BananaCard or the Banana Republic Visa.

2. Shop Around and Save

Be sure to check out sites such as eBay and GiftCardGranny.com to see if they have any discounted Banana Republic gift cards or rewards certificates available for up to 30% off. For example, you could purchase a $150 gift card on GiftCardGranny for just $115.50- that’s a 23% savings.
