Intermix is a multi-brand fashion retailer that was acquired by Gap Inc. in 2012. Like Hill City, Intermix does not have a brand specific credit card. You also cannot earn bonus rewards points shopping at Intermix using Gap credit cards nor the Bright Rewards program.
Janie and Jack
Janie and Jack specializes in children's clothing and was acquired by Gap Inc in March 2019. They do not have a brand specific credit card and you cannot earn bonus rewards points shopping at Janie and Jack using Gap credit cards. You also cannot earn points via the Gap Bright Rewards program.
Bright Rewards is a Gap Rewards program that allows you to earn points that can be redeemed at six of the their brands which are: Athleta, Banana Republic, Banana Republic Factory, Gap, Gap Factor, and Old Navy. With this program, you will earn 2 rewards points for every $1 spent which is equal to earning a 2% return. If you don't have or want a Gap credit card and you enjoy shopping at Gap brand stores, I highly suggest that you sign up for this free program. If you do have any of the six Gap credit cards, signing up for this program will not benefit you since you'll already be earning 5 points per $1 at Gap brands which is a 5% return.
Gap Rewards Points Value
While most of Gap's brands have their own credit cards, the earning and redemption structure is pretty much the same. You'll earn 5 points per $1 at Gap's main brands (Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Athleta, Hill City) and be able to redeem those earned points in increments of 500 which will give you a $5 reward. Rewards are redeemable at any Gap Inc. brand in-store or online.
You can use the Gap Rewards Points Value Calculator to calculate the cash value of any amount of points earned using Gap credit cards or earned in the Bright Rewards program. Remember that you cannot combine credit card points and Bright Rewards points.
Gap Rewards Redemption Value
Credit Card Rewards Calculators
Gap offers brand specific VISA and store credit cards for Athleta, Old Navy, Banana Republic, and Gap. You will find that Gap's credit cards all operate the same in terms of earning and redeeming rewards. You'll be earning the equivalence of 5% back which is pretty good if you spend heavy at Gap brands.
Do note that while the earning and redeeming structure is pretty much the same, there are slight difference between some of the cards when it comes to benefits and perks. If you plan on picking up a Gap credit card, go with the card that's tied to the store that you shop at the most. If you spend heavy at Gap stores enough to earn 5,000 points during a calendar year ($1,000 in spend at main Gap brand stores), you will want to avoid the Athleta credit cards since they do not offer special status like Gap, Old Navy, and Banana Republic.
You can click on any of the Gap credit cards below to learn about the bonus categories, perks & benefits, standard sign up bonus, and fees of the card. Each Gap credit card also has it's own Gap Rewards calculator. The calculator will calculate how many Gap Rewards Points you can earn and the cash value of the Gap credit card based on your monthly/yearly spend, how much each card benefit is worth to you, and the fees of the card. You can compare the results side by side any credit card featured on the site. Any spend you enter into the Gap credit card calculators will carry over to all credit card calculators on the site, so there's no need to re-enter spend when jumping page to page.
Comparison Calculators features side by side comparisons of frequently compared credit cards or comparisons requested through our YouTube channel. These calculators are already set up so you can immediately start calculating total rewards as well as the cash value of the compared cards based on your monthly/yearly spend, how much the card benefits are worth to you, and the annual fees. Comparison Calculators does not allow you to change the designated cards being compared. If you want to compare credit cards outside of the comparisons listed below, I recommend searching for the credit card you want to compare and then using its calculator to compare it against anything featured on the site.
