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 scour the ‘net for the best coupons and review them hourly for accuracy.
Try one of these deals to save 15% or more on your next online order:
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 special 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. Simply go to and scroll to the bottom of the page to enter your email address in the box on the left side of the page.
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 theto get special deals texted to your phone.
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!
