Banana Republic is partnering with ThredUp to allow customers to turn their gently used clothes into Banana Republic shopping credit.

Banana Republic x ThredUp’s Clean Out service is designed to make cleaning out and earning brand credit as easy and convenient as it should be. Unlike peer-to-peer consignment, we do all the work for you including: inspection and photography, packaging and shipping, and marketing to help your items sell. There is no fee to use our service and we take care of the shipping costs to get your items to us. Once you send your items in, we’ll determine which items are eligible for consignment. When the 45-day consignment period has passed, we will let you know how much brand credit you earned. Any items that are not eligible for consignment will be reused or responsibly recycled. Due to the volume of Clean Out Kits we receive and to keep our service free of charge, we are unable to provide item level details through this program, including how many items were accepted and which items were accepted and which were not. But you can rest assured that we will give your items the best possible chance at a second life. Any items that are not eligible for consignment will be reused or responsibly recycled. If you would like your items returned to you, please select Return Assurance ($10.99 fee) when you order your Clean Out Kit and before we process your items. If you have any questions, please contact us at

Together with their partners, ThredUp is committed to returning as many items as possible back into the circular economy and keeping them out of landfill. Items that are still in good shape, but don’t meet ThredUp’s quality standards are evaluated for inclusion in ThredUp’s Rescues program.

Once you’ve mailed your kit, it can take up to 3 weeks to be delivered to ThredUp. Once your kit is received, it will take up to 4 weeks to process your kit.

There's no charge for digital Clean Out Kits and they are free to return. If you would like items that don’t get listed returned to you, this can be done for a fee of $10.99 with Return Assurance. Please note: Return Assurance must be selected when you review your Clean Out Kit settings and before we process your items.

The pricing of your listed items is based on various factors, including brand, style, condition, size, and overall salability. Some value brands are ineligible for a payout, but you can still feel good about sending them in. See a list of ineligible brands here.

Consignment payouts are calculated as a percentage of the final selling price of the item based on our payout structure (see table below). If you choose Return Assurance, those fees will be automatically deducted from any earnings. With a Banana Republic Clean Out Kit, you’ll also earn an extra 15% bonus on your payout!
