Their margins are so high and you are paying shipping so itís possible. I got a $58 shirt after the promo code, shipping fee and tax for around $17. Thatís a great clearance price I could find in Macyís and they could be breaking even on that and clearing a ton of winter merchandise.
If you change the shipping speed it's free.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I wouldn't be surprised of it is, but I don't think it actually is.
It may be this.
It's probably a mistake and now they might want to milk it

Exactly, lately gap has that much of a sale daily and maybe they don't want to tarnish the br image by giving such a sale officially but this way everyone thinks they beat the system and they get to clear out their warehouses so everyone wins

But again this is all speculation..
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

If they  would make at least a few $ on my order then I would think that way , but giving away a $50 cashmere sweater for $0.01 with free shipping unlimited amount of times , makes me think different.

Because of the pricing, most orders donít work out that low though.

Precisely! And shipping hundreds of clothes which weigh next to nothing via smart post don't come close to the cost of shipping even one bugaboo (TRU) or treadmill (AMZ)
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Too bad we can't see from the order numbers how many tens of thousands of orders were placed.
