When it comes to percentage-off sales, there's a threshold number that typically gets shoppers salivating and that number seems to be 40 percent.

Today only, the Gap is offering shoppers 40 percent off on all products with no minimums. You'll need to print out a coupon here and take it to the store with you. This deal is not available online.

Fashion blogger and Times Union Feature writer Kristi Gustafson was one consumer who was all over the Gap deal. "I went in this morning, as soon as they opened, and picked up a $348 leather coat for $110 (it was already on sale before the 40 percent)," she wrote in a blog post today.

If you're more of a Banana Republic fan and can move quickly, you can also get 40 percent off on items at the retailer until 2 p.m. local time today; but the offer is only on sale merchandise.
