Don’t overpay for clothes that get outgrown.
It’s tough to save money when kids grow so fast! That’s why we’re sharing our best Gymboree brand shopping tips to save you bundles of cash for your little bundles of joy!
1. Earn points for a $10 reward in the Gymboree rewards program.
Start your savings adventure by signing up for the FREE Gymboree rewards program (online or in-store) that lets you earn one point for every $1 spent in their US and Canadian stores. 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.
When you first visit Gymboree.com, you’re greeted with a pop-up to score 20% off your purchase if you’re a new customer. All you have to do is simply enter your email address to subscribe to their newsletter, and you’ll receive your 20% coupon offer within a day or two. 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!
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.
The best way to stay in the know with the latest promos from Gymboree is to check out their social media accounts on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. 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.
Recently the company has decided to rebrand and change up the look of their clothing. If you prefer the older Gymboree look, check out the Buy and Sell Facebook groups to find the original styles. Plus, you may also be able to snag a deal on gently used or unwanted kid’s clothes!
10. Watch for all the latest Gymboree deals on Hip2Save.
You know we’ve got your back when it comes to searching out the hottest deals! Head over to the to stores tab on Hip2Save.com and click on Gymboree for all the latest scores we’re loving at the kid-centric retailer!
