7 Ways to Save at Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale
The Bath & Body Works Semi Annual Sale is LIVE NOW – and here are some of the BEST ways you can save big and stock up on your favorite goodies! (The prices aren't quite as low as last year, but there are still some nice savings if you need to restock or grab some items for gifting!)
I spotted the super popular 3-wick candles for just $12.25 today and TONS of body care under $7!
Here are the hottest deals happening today:
I just love it when my house smells good…. which means I'm tempted every time I walk by Bath & Body Works in the mall. But I *usually* can resist buying until there's a really good sale going on. And the mother of all sales – the Bath & Body Works Semi Annual Sale – is my favorite time to shop!
There are so many ways to save at the Bath & Body Works semi-annual sale – from taking along coupons, to knowing where in the store to find the best sales. Here are some of the best tips I've learned.
7 Ways to Save at Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale
1 . Hold Out for December 26th and/or June
If you're a big fan of Bath & Body Works products, make plans to purchase the bulk of your goodies from Dec 26 through the first week of January, or in June – that's when the Semi Annual Sales always hit!
You can get signature lotions, bodywash, and body sprays for up to 75% OFF regular price. If you're able, go ahead and shop for the next 6 months. Having extra candles and lotions in your gift closet is a great way to stay on top of teacher gifts, friends' birthdays, etc… while paying dollar store prices!
For Example: In the past Hand Soaps have been as low as $1.62 (Reg $6.50!)
The summer sale usually starts the first week of June, and the winter sale starts right after Christmas.
2 . Their Price Adjust & Exchange Policies are AMAZING
If you accidentally bought something right before the sale – Bath & Body Works has a fabulous price adjust policy. They'll adjust to the lower price within 14 days of your purchase. 🙂
And if you got a couple candles or lotions that you aren't loving – you can exchange them for other scents!
3 . Use Coupons with the Sale
Bath & Body Works Coupons come out all the time – and you can use them alongside sale events. (Including the Semi-Annual sale!) For instance, during this first week of the Semi-Annual Sale, I've received these coupons from Bath & Body Works so far:
- $10 off $40 Coupon (check your flyer or email)
- 20% OFF $25 or more (Check your email)
Here's one deal idea we were able to get last year using the $10 off $40 Code:
Buy (14) Hand Soaps for $3 each
– Use $10 off $40 Coupon
Pay $5.99 Shipping
Makes it $37.99, or $2.71 per soap!
And Here is the current hand soap deal you can grab online:
Buy (12) Hand Soaps – $4.33 each
- Shipping adds $5.99
- Pay just $4.83 each (+ tax) ~ shipped!
- *Or $5.33 each shipped if you buy 6
You can even stack some coupons! For instance a “Free Product with $10 Purchase” coupon could be used along with a “$10 off $40 purchase” coupon.
4 . Coupons Expired? You *MIGHT* be able to use them anyway!
Did you know that if your coupon expires before you shop – you might be able to still use them? Bath & Body Works used to accept expired coupons within a 3-day grace period, but this may no longer be in effect at most locations. (Call first to check at your store). What a fantastic policy if still valid at your location!
5 . 3-Wick Candles under $5??
Guys – these quality candles burn evenly, burn long and are super scented. But they're also NOT CHEAP.
Normally a Bath & Body Works 3-Wick Candle will set you back $22.50. The very least you can expect to pay for a candle at Bath & Body Works is $8 during the super rare $8 candle sale.
BUT during the Semi-Annual Sale, candles can sometimes go on sale for $10 (check your store for these) – and if you bought (4) and used a $10 off $40 coupon, the price drops to $7.50 each. (WOW!)
EVEN BETTER: SOME stores get in a selection of 3-Wick Candles for 75% OFF! ($5.62 each) If you were to buy 8 of those and use a $10 off $40 coupon – you're going to end up paying $35 – just $4.37 per candle!
6 . Sign up for Emails and Texts
Don't miss out on offers they send their loyal customers! This Semi-Annual Sale I've received coupons via email, but also a Free Shipping offer on Facebook that was specific just for me.
You'll want to sign up for email, texts and such to get extra coupons and special treats like those “FREE Product with Any Purchase” coupons. I love those – because you can buy a travel size item (like in the pic above) or PocketBac and get a FREE Full-Size Signature product!
7 . Get FREE Giftwrap
Why buy bags & ribbons later? While you're in there getting enough lotions to gift every lady in your life for the whole year – grab some giftwrap, on the house! You can pick up the really cute cellophane baggies with ribbon and tag totally free. If you don't see them on a display, just ask your cashier.
*If you shop online, the giftwrap option costs an extra $5!
And one last tip…
As always – if it isn't in your budget, try not to let a good deal lure you into overspending. Buyer's remorse is real – and I guarantee you many a Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual shopper have experienced it!
Just try to think practically about what you'll *actually* use up in 6 months. (A bottle a month? Maybe less?) And what you'll actually use as gifts (Do your kids' teachers even like getting body care? Do your girlfriends use only certain scents?)
These are some of the best deals we saw last year:
- Full Size Body Care up to 75% OFF
- Select Hand Soaps, Wallflower Refills – $3 (Regularly $13.50)
- Select Men's Body Care – $5
- 3 Wick Candles – $12.25 (Regularly $24.50)
- 3-Wick Candles – $10.50 (reg $24)
- Hand Soap – $3 (reg $6)
- Wallflowers – $3 (Reg $6.50)
- Select Bodycare – $3.12 and up
**Plus we were able to use a $10 off $40 Coupon Code (to be announced)
