Here are some of the best tips I've learned!
Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale Shopping Tips
1. Hold Out for June 14th or December 26th.
If you're a big fan of Bath & Body Works products, make plans to purchase the bulk of your goodies in the Summer, starting June 14th, or the Winter sale starts December 26th through the first week of January. That's when these Semi Annual Sales always hit and you can save the most!
You can get signature lotions, body wash, and body sprays for up to 75% OFF regular price. If you're able, go ahead and shop for the next six months. Having extra candles and lotions in your gift closet is a great way to stay on top of teacher gifts, birthdays, etc… while paying almost dollar store prices!
For Example: In the past Hand Soaps have been as low as $2.50 (regularly $7.50!)
The summer sale usually starts the first week of June, and the winter sale starts right after Christmas.
2 . 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! Several members of our team JUST GOT new coupons from Bath & Body Works for the Semi Annual event:
- $10 off $40 Coupon (Good from now through July 11 – check for mail flyers or an email)
You can even stack coupons that come on the same flyer (usually 3)! For instance a “Free Product with $10 Purchase” coupon could be used along with a “$10 off $40 purchase” coupon. Just check the coupon for any exclusions so you know in advance.
If you're not sure, ask one of the staff members or cashiers – they're always super helpful!
3. Grab 3-Wick Candles for under $5??
Guys – these quality candles burn evenly, burn long, and are highly fragrant. But they're also NOT CHEAP. Normally a Bath & Body Works 3-Wick Candle will set you back $22.50.
🚨 75% OFF CANDLES: SOME stores get in a selection of 3-Wick Candles for 75% OFF during the Semi-Annual Sale (that's around $5.62 each).
If you buy 8 Clearance Candles for $5.62 ea (Total = $44.96)
And use a $10 off $40 coupon at checkout
You're going to end up paying $35 – just $4.37 per candle! WOW!

5. Sign up for Emails and Texts!
Don't miss out on offers they send to loyal customers! In the past, during the Semi-Annual Sale I've received coupons via email, but also free shipping offers on Facebook that were specific just for me.
But wait! Bath & Body Works now offers FREE STORE PICKUP for online orders at participating stores! That means you can order all your favorite goodies online and not pay the hefty shipping prices (some exclusions apply). Go HERE to see if your store is participating.
You'll want to sign up for their mailer coupons, emails, and texts 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!
6. Pick up FREE Gift Wrap while shopping!
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 gift wrap, 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 gift wrap option costs an extra $5 ~ WOW!
7. Their Price Adjust & Exchange Policies are AMAZING!
If you accidentally bought something right before the sale – Bath & Body Works has a fabulous price adjustment policy. They'll adjust to the lower price within 14 days of your purchase.
Plus, they guarantee everything they sell! So if you got a couple candles or lotions that you aren't loving or a Wallflowers Plug that stopped working, you can exchange them for other scents or get merchandise credit – no receipt needed! Check out all the details HERE.
And one last practical 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 Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual shoppers 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 great questions to ask yourself!
Do you have any great tips for shopping the Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale? Or maybe just tips for shopping Bath & Body Works every day?
