An Important Non-Change to Your Plan

I received the following message as an insert in my GapCard bill this month:

You will now earn 5 points for every $1 you spend at Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy and piperlime.com.  Once you reach 1,000 points, or spend $200, we'll send you a $10 Reward Certificate.

Old Rewards Program:
$1 = 1 Reward Point
1 Reward Point x 200 = $10 Reward Certificate

New Rewards Program:
$1 = 5 Reward Points
5 Reward Points x 200 = $10 Reward Certificate

So . . . what?  I had to read it five times before I understood what it meant.  Here's the translation--

Dear Gap Customer,



The Gap

Gap points have the exact same value now as they did before.  The ratio of dollars spent to dollars earned is the same.  The number of generic knit tops and clearance jeans I buy will continue to earn me Gap rewards at the same exact rate they always have.  NOTHING HAS CHANGED.

Whatever.  In other news, thanks for your comments on yesterday's post.  One of you hit the correct answer on. the. nose.  I will wait until tomorrow to reveal who though, because I felt it was more important to use today's post to rant about Gap points.  Obvi.

How many Stanley nickels does that earn you?


HAHA--I should call Gap customer service and ask them if they take Schrute Bucks
