Starting Today: It Pays to Procrastinate

If you haven’t started your holiday planning, you are officially a Procrastinator — and TaskRabbit wants to help you out.

Beginning December 17 through December 22, TaskRabbit is offering all in-store Banana Republic shoppers a $30 credit to have a Tasker help with holiday tasks and errands!

Will you have a Tasker help wrap the kids’ Christmas presents? Clean the house in preparation for the big holiday dinner? Or maybe hire a Tasker to deliver a caroling-gram wishing a Merry Christmas to Grandma who lives across the country? Your options are endless.

The promotion is part of Banana Republic’s Procrastinators Event, which unites some of the biggest “helping hand” startups like TaskRabbit, Curb, deliv and SHYP. Shoppers can claim their $30 credit — among other perks — by going to their local Banana Republic store.

Here are all the ways Procrastinators can cash in:

  • Extra Help: Customers who shop at all U.S. stores will receive a $30 credit from TaskRabbit to help with any last-minute to-dos – holiday party cleaning help, peppermint hot chocolate runs, hanging Christmas tree lights, picking up your office’s Secret Santa gift, etc.

  • Free Rides: Shoppers can avoid congested parking lots and lugging shopping bags on public transportation by catching a free ride (up to $20) with CURB to or from Banana Republic stores across the U.S.

  • Free Same-Day Delivery: Customers who shop on bananarepublic.com and reserve their must-have items through Reserve In Store will receive an email from which they can choose to have those items shipped that same day for free through DELIV.  This service is available in San Francisco, Palo Alto, Los Angeles, Chicago, New Jersey, Washington D.C., Houston and Seattle.

  • Free Shipping and Gift Wrap: Shoppers in San Francisco, New York and Miami will be given a $25 credit at the register that can be used to ship their gifts through SHYP. Customers who visit the Banana Republic Grant Ave store in San Francisco, Soho store in New York and Aventura Mall in Miami, can immediately hand over their gifts to Shyp ambassadors to be gift wrapped with Brit+Co designed wrapping paper and shipped off to loved ones anywhere in the world.

  • Discount on everyone’s favorite gift – Gift Cards: Spend $50 or more in gift cards & receive 10% off your gift card purchases. Don’t want to wait in line? Some stores will be offering an “express lane” for gift card purchases.

This holiday season, you don’t have to be the early bird to win. It finally pays to be a Procrastinator!
