Procrastinators Rejoice! Banana Republic to offer Six Days of Perks for Last-Minute Shoppers

The Procrastinators Event offers shoppers free taxi rides, free shipping, extra helping hands, same-day delivery and more

San Francisco – December 15, 2014 – Just in time for the final holiday shopping rush, Banana Republic is announcing The Procrastinators Event for those who’ve been putting off their holiday shopping until now. From December 17 – 22, the brand will be offering additional perks to those who might need a little extra help getting everything done in time.

“Everyone is busy during the holidays, so we’re here to help treat our customers to perks that make their shopping experience a pleasure,” said Chris Nicklo, VP of Marketing at Banana Republic. “Everyone deserves a hand during the holidays and we know what it’s like to shop down to the wire for the loved ones on our list.”  

The Procrastinators Event unites TaskRabbit, Curb, Deliv and SHYP to provide Banana Republic customers with this holiday season's most innovative and generous suite of helpful services, including:

  • Extra Help: Customers who shop at all U.S. stores will receive 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 congested parking lots and lugging shopping bags on public transportation by catching a free ride (up to $20) with CURB to or from Banana Republic stores across the U.S.**
  • Free Same-Day Delivery: Customers who shop on bananarepublic.com and reserve their must-have items 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 service 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 be given a $25 credit at the register that can be used to ship their gifts through SHYP. Customers who visit the Banana Republic Grant Ave 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.***
