Gap Membership: What you don’t know


Avid GAP shoppers, especially if you are from Penang, this might be of interest to you!

I indulged in a mini shopping spree for my kids at The Gap in 1 Utama PJ a few weeks ago.  And as the sales personnel was ringing up my total, she asked if I was a GAP member.  I answered no, because well, I wasn’t.  And she proceeded to explain that I could use my total spending for that day in accumulation for purchases towards getting a GAP membership.

After a little bit of inquiring back and forth, I discovered this:

  • Only purchases from GAP outlets in the Klang Valley count towards accumulation of purchases to acquire the GAP membership.  To be a GAP member, you need to spend RM700 either in a single receipt, or over a period of 6 months.  The caveat is that all purchases MUST be from GAP outlets in the Klang Valley (KLCC, The Gardens, 1 Utama, Mid Valley Megamall).
  • Purchases from the GAP store at Queensbay Mall, Penang DO NOT count towards a membership with GAP.
  • You cannot apply to be a GAP member in Penang, but you can do so in the Klang Valley.
  • However, if you are already a GAP member, then you still get to use your card and discounts at any GAP store in Malaysia.
  • Your friends and relatives and anyone you know can help you accumulate purchases.  They just need to quote your cellphone number when they make their purchases at GAP, assuming they themselves are not accumulating purchases for a membership of their own, that is.
  • GAP merchandise in the Klang Valley and Penang are totally different.  I walk into the GAP store here in Penang and end up getting nothing, but I end up getting RM500 plus of stuff at the store in 1 Utama.

So now I need another RM200 + worth of GAP purchases (from the Klang Valley) within the next six months to qualify for the GAP Membership.  Anyone wanna help me? :P

Riding in that Honda

Honda Cars are pretty intriguing, aren’t they? Okay, I admit it. It is because we have been eyeing the Honda Civic lately. Yes, hubby and I are still tinkering over the possibility of getting one, weighing the pros and cons and checking out Honda Car Prices everywhere. The Civic model before this current one was also quite chic looking, and I had the chance to ride in it before. But I really like the look of the new one. I especially like the way the rear lights look. Hey, I can see myself driving one of these babies now, cruising down the roads, with some awesome music on the player….

Perhaps we ought to go check out if we can get some good and FREE Honda Car Quotes on the Civic, and maybe even test drive it a little before deciding.
