While I mostly wore shorts and T-shirts to my college classes, there were times I needed to “totally look the part” like Elle Woods heading off to law school. Whether for a presentation or an interview, Banana Republic had my back with a cool 15% student discount on my favorite full-priced items, including my go-to uniform of a printed button-down and colorful pencil skirt.
By simply flashing my school ID at the register, I was able to save on more professional essentials. Because you have to show your school ID in person to receive the 15% off, the Banana Republic student discount is only available in stores. But don’t worry, there are still ways to save if you forgot your ID or just want to shop online.
We’ve got you covered with three ways to find 15% off or more at Banana Republic.
1. Our Promo Codes are Updated Hourly to Save You More
Once you’ve added some items to your cart and you’re ready to check out, you can add promo codes to your order that can add up to massive discounts.
You don’t have to create a Banana Republic account to check out, but you do have to select your shipping method and enter an address before you can enter any coupon codes. We always have the most up-to-date promotional codes because we built our own software to scour the internet for the best coupons and our team reviews its findings hourly for accuracy.
2. Get Banana Republic Deals Sent to Your Inbox
A great way to stay on top of Banana Republic’s current promotions is to sign up for the store’s email list. You’ll receive information on sales, new arrivals, and exclusive offers unique to you, including a special birthday gift.
While more general promo codes can be found online, including on our Banana Republic store page, you may earn unique discount codes via the Banana Republic email program that can only be used by you. If you forget to sign up now, you can easily sign up right from BananaRepublic.com by scrolling to the bottom of the page and entering your email address in the box on the left side of the page.
If your email address is linked to your Banana Republic account and rewards, you may see offers for frequent shopping and even rewards tailored to your browsing history.
3. Receive Text Alerts for In-Store Promotions
Looking for in-store offers? You can sign up for mobile messaging right at the bottom of the Banana Republic homepage to get special deals texted to your phone. The offers range from sales alerts to exclusive discounts for being a subscriber.
Banana Republic will send up to six messages per month about seasonal collections, ongoing sales, and new promotions. However, be aware that standard data and messaging rates through your phone carrier still apply.
Update Your Wardrobe with Savings In-Store & Online
There were plenty of times in college I needed to update my shorts-and-T-shirt look for something more professional. First impressions matter, so for big presentations, an internship, or a job interview, you want to be confident in the image you project and put your best foot forward.
Banana Republic helps college kids with a 15% student discount on full-priced items when you provide a valid student ID, but that means the offer is only good in stores.
However, you can often find great deals — even better than 15% — when shopping online, so be sure to check our Banana Republic store page for current coupon codes.
Oh, and remember, the student discount also applies to educators when they present their school ID, so just make sure you don’t show up to class wearing the same outfit as your teacher!
