Gap points are worth 1 cent each, on average. For example, 10,000 Gap points have a dollar value of roughly $100. As a result, Gap points are less valuable than the average clothing store's rewards points, which are valued at 3.18 cents each.
The easiest way to calculate the value of a retailer's rewards points for any redemption method is to determine the dollar value of what you're redeeming for, minus any taxes and fees that you'll still have to pay, and then divide that amount by the number of points you're required to redeem. For your convenience, here's the formula for Gap points:
Dollar Value of Redemption Item / Number of Gap Points Needed = Gap Point Value
How to Earn More Gap Points
It's important to remember that while you can't change the redemption values of Gap points, you can increase the rate at which you earn them. One of the best ways to increase the number of Gap points that you earn is to apply for either the Gap Visaor the Gap Store Credit Card. That can also help you reach a higher status tier in the Bright Rewards program, further boosting your earning potential.
The Gap Visa Credit Card can be used anywhere Visa is accepted. But the Gap Store Card can only be used at Gap, Old Navy, Banana Republic and Athleta. You can compare the two offers here: https://wallethub.com/compare/?id=322,323.
The GAP Store Card standard spending-based rewards are typically credited after each respective purchase is processed and posts to your account. Your first-purchase discount will be applied at checkout.
Annual bonuses should be distributed within a month or two of you qualifying for them.
