The Champagne Life on a DIY Budget Since 2007

Free Jeans: Gap & Facebook

Oh yes, it’s true: Gap is giving away 10,000 free pairs of jeans tomorrow, Friday November 5th, to lucky shoppers who check in using Facebook Places at one of their stores.

I desperately need new jeans, since I rarely (if ever) get to shop for myself at our swaps, and — though I’ve never had much luck with Gap jeans not leaving a gap on my back waistline (Italian girls, you know what I’m talking about) — I will be in line at our local Gap store tomorrow morning when the doors open for business at 10 a.m.

Even if I don’t score a free pair, they’re offering 40% off storewide as a consolation, and their “From Blue to Green” textile recycling mission to collect used jeans and turn them into insulation is really impressive, so it’s worth a second (or seventieth) chance on fit, right?

Yeah, I thought so, too.
