Each time you accumulate 200 points, you’ll receive a $10 rewards certificate sent to your email address. What’s more, you’ll receive exclusive offers and access to special shopping events, so you get first dibs on fun and fresh merchandise!

2. Take advantage of the 20% off welcome coupon.

If you click out of this, you can still receive the coupon by opting in to emails at the bottom of the website homepage or when you sign up for an account.

3. Score a 20% off purchase coupon in Parents Magazine.

Did you already redeem your welcome 20% off coupon? Check out magazines like Parents to find inserts for 20% off at Gymboree and Crazy8! Annual subscriptions are around $10, but for frequent Gymboree shoppers, the subscription is worth it for all the coupons alone. You can also check out places where magazines are available for public reading like the pediatrician, dentist, or library!

4. Shop during Gymbucks promo periods to get 50% off.

Take advantage of Gymbucks earning periods to score $25 in Gymbucks for every $50 spent. During these timeframes, Gymbucks can be redeemed by using your Gymbucks code and pin. While Gymbucks can’t be combined with most promotions, you can use them at the Gymboree outlets too!

5. Buy gently used Gymboree Clothing on ThredUp or Swap.com for up to 90% off.

Whether you need to buy new clothes or want to sell pieces that have been outgrown, check out online consignment shops like Swap.com and ThredUp. Both have TONS of styles with gently used and new-with-tags options from Gymboree (as well as plenty of other brands) so you can pick something up for yourself while you’re browsing the site.

6. Save up to 75% when you shop the clearance racks and stack savings with coupons.

Don’t waste your time with the full-priced clothes on display right as you walk in the door. Head for the back where the markdowns are and begin your shopping session there. Don’t hesitate to ask an associate if there’s more inventory in the back since the sale floor typically can’t hold all sizes and/or colors. The best part? Most coupons can be used on top of clearance and even final sale prices. 🤩

7. Buy discounted gift cards for up to 18% off.

If you’re shopping Gymboree online, before checkout search Raise or Gift Card Granny for discounted Gymboree gift cards to save up to 18% on the actual value. Gift cards can also be used at both Gymboree stores AND Gymboree outlets (so long as the fine print doesn’t exclude them from in-store use).

Hip Tip: Be sure to double check the fine print for exclusions and conditions, such as in-store or online only redemption — eGift cards are typically for online purchases only, while physical cards and vouchers may be accepted both online and in-store.

8. Follow Gymboree on social media to find exclusive promos.

They’ve currently been promoting their clothing line rebrand, along with the Surprize, Surprize offers on the Made You Smile app, where you can spin a wheel to win huge prizes like a $5,000 shopping spree or a new car!

9. Check out Facebook groups for “vintage” Gymboree finds.

    If you are like me and not an avid Gymboree shopper just be careful and know Gymborees return policy. Bought shirts for a wedding that the bride wanted to see if the color matched and even told the store what was happening. No mention of the return policy just that they coud be returned with the receipt. When some of the shirts didn’t work I returned them . All tags and receipts were present. The clerk proceeded to give me $10 less per shirt I showed her my receipts and she said ,”Oh I know but you are past the return date so you get in store credit at current value. It doesn”t matter if you have the receipt or not.” That would have been nice to know especially since I was trying to help out a bride who is out of state. I kept the shirts and will try to sell or donate. The wedding will be in April of 2019 and it will be beautiful without shirts from Gymboree. LOL

      That happened to me too with a reciept with in 60 days of purchase .. it’s always better to return using the return labe you get when you buy online.

    If you’re a die-hard gymbo fan, consider getting the Gymboree rewards visa too. Every month or two I get between $10-25 gymbo gift card from purchases I made everywhere, and they sometimes run good promos with the card like last month if I spent $40 on gas, I earned $10 at Gymbo. And you always get an extra 5% off all gymbo purchases with card.

    I would like feedback on the quality of the new Gymboree designs. My previous purchases from this last year are getting some holes. Has anyone bought from them since the new clothing lines have come out?

    • 5pink1blue

      Yup, terrible quality. Bought my son a 3 button shirt and the seam where the sleeve connected to the shirt completely ripped just from washing. Everything seems thin and poorly sewn. Of course I’ve seen the same thing with old navy and tcp.

      • palms26

        We buy all Gymboree. I still find Gymboree to be better quality and last longer than Gap, Carters and Target brand stuff I’ve bought. The majority of their stuff has lasted us 2 kids for hand me downs which saves us so much money! Most of it doesn’t last past the 2nd kid to be donated. Now I have had a few complete misses with Gymboree. We’ve had a few boy cotton shirts shrink quite a bit in length but not in width (where the shirt shrinks down to a weird square shape better fitted for someone very short and wide waisted.) And we’ve had “several” red cotton t-shirts bleed red dye onto other laundry so I just avoid buying any red t-shirts from Gymboree (multiple washes and the red dye keeps coming off like crazy).

    I love Gymboree for my son (5yrs) and my daughter (11yrs), great quality and fun designs 😉

    • Amber (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I have liked their clothing for my kiddos too! We’ve even had most items hold up well to pass on to cousins! Thanks for the feedback, Lily!

    I have two more:
    – you mention paying for a subscription to parents but if you start a Recyclebank account, you can get enough points for a free subscription in a couple days. Most of their rewards aren’t as great as they used to be but if you like getting magazines, they have tons.
    -if your Gymboree offers classes, they sometimes give gymbucks to participants. My friend attends class there and gets them

    Please don’t endorse ThredUP. It doesn’t offer fair payouts. Also, I miss Gymboree terribly. I miss its quality and its adorable mix-and-match collection pieces. I’d spend plenty of money there if the variety and quality returned.

    • Jamie

      Right? I’m not liking their redesigned stuff, it looks so generic. Their old stuff was much cuter! I have outfits from 10-14 years ago that are still as adorable today as they were back then!

  7. Mary

    I won a $10 promotional code for Gymboree that I can’t use because it’s only good in stores, not online. The code is 6L5G8P951DDKUB3 , and the email just said to visit a Gymboree store to redeem it.
    If someone uses it, please reply, because I have one more I can post.

    • Prashanthi Matli

      Hi Mary,

      Can u pls send me the other gymboree code you mentioned in the last line?
