The three major Gap ( GPS) brands -- Gap, Old Navy and Banana Republic -- are well known for their frequent deals, usually taking the form of printable coupons and coupon codes. And if you'd rather not subscribe to their email newsletters or visit their Web sites every day, following them on Facebook is a good strategy. Each brand approaches their deals a little differently. Banana Republic is probably best for coupons, offering a coupon code or printable coupon approximately once a week; it also stands out for being relatively circumspect about how often it bombards its followers with posts about new products and company news. Old Navy, meanwhile, posts more often and tends to advertise in-store sales and promotions rather than coupons. As for the flagship brand, color us unimpressed with Gap's Facebook feed, which is big on company news and pictures of new products but relatively light on deals. Unless you're a big fan of the store, we'd pass on this one.
