Gap Gets Tapping with Google Wallet and MasterCard
Gap Inc. (NYSE:GPS) is announcing that shoppers at more than 65 of our stores (including Gap, Old Navy, Banana Republic, Banana Republic Factory Stores and Gap Outlet) across the Bay Area can now use Google Wallet (NASDAQ:GOOG) to pay and save all with a single tap of your phone.
Google Wallet is an app that makes your smartphone your wallet. It securely stores virtual versions of your payment cards directly in your phone, along with coupons, and loyalty and gift cards. Google Wallet supports most Citi PayPass eligible MasterCard (NYSE:MA) credit cards and the Google Prepaid Card.
With Google Wallet you can not only pay for your new pair of Gap jeans, but also find and redeem promotions being offered in our stores while you shop. Starting today through the end of February, Gap will offer 15% off your entire purchase when you use Google Wallet to shop at our Bay Area stores. You can find this featured deal within the app’s “Offers” section. If you don’t have a phone that supports Google Wallet yet, you can still tap to pay with any MasterCard PayPass enabled card at the same locations.
