Returning Things to Gap: An Easy-to-Follow Guide
Did you grab something from Gap and now you’re thinking, “This isn’t what I expected!”? No problem! Let’s chat about how to send it back.
How Long Do You Have?
Time Limit: 30 Days
If you’ve bought something from Gap, you’ve got 30 days from when you bought it or when it was shipped to send it back. If you shopped online, remember that the 30 days starts from the day it was shipped (even before it arrives at your house).
Special Holiday Returns:
Bought something during the holidays? There’s good news! If you shopped between November 1 and December 24 in 2022, you have until January 15, 2023, to return it. Or 30 days, whichever gives you more time!
What Can You Return?
Gap is pretty cool about returns, but there are some rules:
- Clothing should be clean, not worn out, and not broken.
- No returns or swaps for masks and items on final sale.
- Want to return swimwear? Make sure it still has the original tags and that little protective sticker.
- Got sunglasses? Bring back the free case and keep the tags on.
- If you got something from a different seller on Gap’s site, they might have different rules. So, check with them.
No Extra Cost for Shipping Back
Sending stuff back to Gap by mail? They’ve got you covered with a free shipping label. Or, make it super easy and just take it to a Gap store.
Online Shopping vs. Store Shopping Returns
If you got something from Gap’s website, you can send it back by mail or bring it to a Gap store. But remember, if you shopped at Gap online, return to a Gap store (not their sibling store, Banana Republic). Items you got in a store? Those go back to a store.
Getting Your Money Back? Have Your Paperwork Ready
Want your money back the way you paid? Make sure to have your receipt or shipping confirmation. No receipt? No worries! Just pop into a Gap store and show them the credit card you used.
Want Something Different? Here’s How to Exchange
For swaps, you can bring the item to a Gap store. If you’re doing it online, send the item back like a return and then buy what you want.
Got a Gap Gift? Here’s What to Do
Gifts are special! If you got a Gap gift and have a gift receipt, return it and you’ll get a gift card for the same amount. If you don’t have that special receipt, Gap will send you a credit for what that item sells for now.
Hope this helps, and happy shopping! 🛍️🌈
