What screen resolution do I need to view my bill online? (back to top)

To view your monthly Banana Republic card online billing statement, we recommend that your monitor's screen resolution be 1024 x 768 or 800 x 600 pixels. Either monitor setting will permit you to view your E-Bill without having to scroll your screen side to side. You can view your E-Bill at lower resolutions, but you will need to scroll from side to side to view the complete bill.

How do I change my screen resolution to 1024 x 768 or 800 x 600 pixels? (back to top)

If you have a Microsoft Windows' operating system, click on Start in the lower left portion of your screen. Select Settings, then select Control Panel. In Control Panel select Display. Next, click on Settings. In the middle of the screen is an area called Desktop Area. Within Desktop Area select 1024 x 768 or 800 x 600. Then click on Apply in the lower right corner of the screen.
