We’re in the final shopping stretch this holiday season – that last couple of weeks of December where the panic sets in, and you know you won’t be able to get everything done without a real-life Santa, and a sleigh that can sub for miracle shipping.
Banana Republic wants to help, with its first-ever Procrastinators Event.
The brand is catering to last-minute shoppers this season, offering six days of perks – from free taxi rides to same-day delivery, to extra helping hands (think personal shopping assistant… or elves).
Here are details of the program, which runs Dec. 17-22:
Extra Help: Customers at all U.S. stores will get a $30 credit from TASKRABBIT to help with any last-minute to-dos – holiday party cleaning help, peppermint hot chocolate runs, hanging Christmas tree lights, picking up your office’s Secret Santa gift, etc.
Free Rides: Shoppers can avoid packed parking lots and lugging shopping bags on public transportation by catching a free ride (up to $20) with CURBto or from Banana Republic stores across the country.
Free Same-Day Delivery: Customers who shop on bananarepublic.com and reserve gifts through Reserve In Store will receive an email from which they can choose to have those items shipped that same day for free through DELIV. This is available in San Francisco, Palo Alto, Los Angeles, Chicago, New Jersey, Washington D.C., Houston and Seattle.
Free Shipping and Gift Wrap: Shoppers in San Francisco, New York and Miami will get a $25 credit at the register that can be used to ship their gifts through SHYP. Customers who visit the Banana Republic Grant Avenue store in San Francisco, Soho store in New York and Aventura Mall in Miami, can immediately hand over their gifts to Shyp ambassadors to be gift wrapped with Brit+Co designed wrapping paper and shipped off to loved ones anywhere in the world.
