Shopping after the holidays can seem like a lot of been-there-done-that; who wants to face the overcrowded malls and cashier lines again, or spend hours clicking on retail sites? Trust me, though, you'll want to make an exception and head for the mall or computer now to take advantage of Gap's incredible after Christmas sale going on right this very minute. To clear out its inventory, the retailer is practically giving away tons of great merch.
Both online and at their brick-and-mortar stores (Gap, GapBody, GapKids, and babyGap), all items with prices ending in $.99 are automatically 75 percent off. So an adorable fleece polar-bear-themed one-piece for babies up to 24 months, which normally retails for $40, is on sale for $15. Great, right? But wait: Up until midnight on December 28, you can take an additional 40 percent off everything — markdowns included! — using the promo code FORYOU. So that bodysuit price plummets down to a mind-boggling $9.
Convinced now? Thought so. Here are some of the Gap items we found that are both stylish and a good example of the savings you'll get when you shop for yourself, the kids, the spouse, or even that friend whom you just told, "Oops, I left your present at home!" when she gave you an unexpected holiday gift. (Happens to the best of us.) But don't wait till the last minute to make your selections; the bargains below were still available at this writing, but other items are already sold out or unavailable in certain sizes and colors.
