18 Money-Saving Hacks for Bath and Body Works

We all know the best smelling store in the mall; Bath and Body Works.

With so many amazing smells and beautiful looking products, it can be hard not to get dragged in. From body lotions to candles and sprays, you know there will be many frequent purchases at Bath and Body Works. On the outside, the store may seem appealing, but sometimes the prices aren’t so soothing.

With these 18 simple saving strategies, score your favorite bath, beauty, and home products at a fraction of a price.

1. Shop at the Semi-annual Sale

The semi-annual sale happens twice a year and is Bath and Body Work’s biggest saving hack. With one in December, right after Christmas, and the other in June, you can save up to 75% off with this famous semi-annual sale. Combine this sale with the occasional storewide deal and you are capable of cutting your total cost in half. The store will clear out older inventory to make room for the spring and fall merchandise. Each semi-annual sale lasts for several weeks and the store honors all coupons resulting in more savings.

2. Sign up for their rewards program

Members of the Bath & Body Works rewards program are entitled to a variety of store benefits. Through this loyalty rewards program members are capable of receiving up to 22% savings. When you spend $75 you will earn $16.50 towards a “free” item of your choice. For every one dollar you spend on regular priced items will get you one rewards point. On your birthday, Bath & Body Works gifts you with a coupon for a free travel-size item. 

3. Look for Top Offers

Bath & Body Works is constantly offering coupons and discounts that are too good to be true. From home fragrance favorites to body care, there is always a promotion for something. Click one of the top offer deals and it will bring you to the respective page.

4. Provide a phone number and email

Make sure to provide your cashier with your phone number and email address at checkout. Sometimes it can be annoying to have text alerts, but you can get some great deals such as a free travel sized item or a free signature item upon purchase. 

5. Shop the Candle Day Sale

If you’re a candle lover then we strongly recommend you stock up on your favorite scents on Candle Day. Every year Bath & Body Works offers insanely low candle prices on the first Saturday of December. During this annual 3-day event, 3-wick candles are marked down to only $9.50. The regular sale price is $24.50. If you decide to shop online, the yearly code is provided.

6. Follow Bath & Body Works on Social Media

Bath and Body Works is dedicated to creating a loyal online fan base. Follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to reveal numerous coupons and up to date sales. Simply hit the follow button and you will find deals in code form so that you can shop online or in-store.

7. Keep your receipts

All Bath & Body Works receipts have a phone number and web address where shoppers can take a survey and offer feedback about their experience. Complete the survey and you will receive a coupon code as a thank you for your feedback. The reward is generally $10 of a $30 or more purchase.

8. Use expired coupons

For up to three days after expiration, Bath & Body Works will allow you to use them in-store. It is very common that customers don’t receive your coupons in the mail before the expiration day, therefore, based on the store manager’s discretion, there is a three day grace period to redeem your coupons.

9. Shop the Black Friday Deals

If there is one time of the year to splurge on Bath & Body Works products it is during Black Friday. You can use more than one coupon and receive a VIP gift bag. The VIP bags come with over $100 worth of merchandise and you can get on for $25 when you spend $30.

Also, Black Friday is the one exception to the “no stacking coupons” rule at Bath & Body Works. The cashier will apply the discounts in the following order; $10 off your $40 purchase, a free item with a $10 purchase, and then 20% of your entire purchase. You could potentially be saving hundreds of dollars at Bath & Body Works if you shop on Black Friday.

10. Shop online

Stack deals and use extra discount codes when you shop Bath & Body Works online. Online shopping is great because it allows you to free up time instead of physically going to the store. A lot of the time the Bath & Body Works online sales and in-store sales are completely different. A deal that is available online may not be available in-store at all.

11. Find retired fragrances online

Missing your favorite fragrance, but can’t seem to find it in any store? You can still find them online! On the Bath & Body Works website, you can find a section specifically dedicated to old fragrances that they no longer sell in-store. They call these retired fragrances and sometimes they even bring them back during semi-annual sales. The best thing about retired fragrances? You can mix and match; so buy 2, get 1 free!

12. Free gift wrapping in-store

In a rush to deliver a gift? If you shop in-store, they will give you a cello bag, ribbon, and their traditional blue and white checked bag FOR FREE. This gift wrapping option is available online, but it will cost you an extra $5. If you don’t see a gift wrapping section in your store, just ask an associate and they will go out back and wrap it for you!

13. 14-Day price guarantee

Bath & Body Works offers a 14-day price guarantee on all of its items. So, be sure to monitor prices for whatever you’ve purchased and act fast if you see them decrease. Simply bring in your store receipt or call 1-800-756-5005 for online purchases, and Bath & Body Works will match the current price. This adjustment can only be used once and the exchange must be within 14 days of the purchase.

14. Use the 100% guarantee

Sometimes even the most devoted Bath & Body Works fans will purchase a product that they can’t stand. If this happens, don’t fear. Take advantage of their 100% satisfaction guarantee. If at any time you are not completely satisfied with the quality of our products, you may return them to any of our Bath & Body Works stores. 

15. The more you shop, the better coupons you receive

Bath & Body Works tracks all your shopping habits in their system and offers you coupons tailored to you. If you are a frequent shopper and tend to buy body care, you will get more coupons for lotion or gel products. Similarly, if you typically buy fragrance items, you will get coupons for wallflower refills or candles. Make sure that your phone number is in the store system so you can save more money every time you spend.

16. Download the Bath & Body Works App

A great way to get deals before you walk into the store is by downloading the Bath & Body Works App. Available on iPhone and Android, this app is extremely useful for quickly looking at deals before you arrive. It is also helpful when you are in the store and need to quickly lookup an item. The app will also let you save items you are interested in so that you can look back at deals later.

17. Carefully collect coupons to save on Aromatherapy

Bath & Body Works sales almost never include Aromatherapy. It is one of the most requested items, but it rarely goes on sale. These saving tricks will ensure that you get the most bang for your buck on Aromatherapy items;

  • When you receive a free item coupon, this entails any products up to $14, find an Aromatherapy fragrance you love, and use it as your freebie. 
  • Stack multiple coupons on Black Friday
  • Use your “free with a $10 purchase” coupon to grab an Aromatherapy item.

Check out the Aromatherapy fragrance page to keep up to date with all the prices and strike the best time to buy.

18. Find free gifts with no strings attached

Sometimes Bath & Body Works just has free promo codes to use. For example, Bath & Body Works’ Free Gift coupon in August 2020 came in the form of the promo code: HARVEST, which you could apply after adding any merchandise to your cart and get a free gift automatically added to your purchase. Most of the time you need a $10 purchase. The items aren’t 100% free.
