I have been a GAP shopper for years but for the past 2 years they have been raising their prices significantly and offering these 40% off coupons frequently. Take for example the Boys 100% polyester (and they call it "down") winter jackets. They used to cost $49.95 and now they are $98. There is NO difference in the product. If you apply 45% off on the same jacket comes to $53.00. Gap still makes a lot of money while we get the same product for a much higher price.
I've decided to get Patagonia or Marmot down jackets for this winter for the boys. I'll pass on GAP and all its offers.
I have to agree that Gap's quality is pretty awful. I didn't start buying their clothes til recently (past two years),and I have noticed their quality is often the same or more likely lower than Old Navy's. Gap has more trendy styles butbut the quality is really disappointing. I bought a simple men's zip up hoody from the gap and it's awful compared to my four year old hoodies from Old Navy. For starters, the gap hoody had pocket seams that came apart after two days of wear and the subsequent first washing.
Better off staying away or going with Old Navy--much more durable clothes and longer lasting styles, vs gaps cheaply made fads.
