5 Secrets to Saving Big at Bath & Body Works, From Insiders
One sweet whiff of those lovely Bath & Body Works fragrances is enough to send anyone into a buying frenzy. Since opening its doors in malls across America in the 1990s, the fragrance store —which sells candles, body sprays, bath essentials, and more — has amassed a deeply loyal following. In fact, that rabid scent-loving fan base buys more than $4 billion of products a year.
But, with all that shopping, we thought you Bath & Body Works shoppers would like to know that there are ways to save on all your favorite products. Here’s how you can save a few dollars on your next soap purchase (so you can turn around and spend it all on bath salts instead).
Keep track of the semi-annual sale date
The store currently hosts a semi-annual sale twice per year. The first typically comes in January, while the other comes sometime in June. And the savings can be massive, with most products getting a 50 percent off tag, while others can be slashed up to 75 percent.
Sign up for their e-newsletter
Get deals, scoops, and coupons delivered right to your email inbox each week. You can do so by either telling the person at the checkout counter that you want in on the list or simply head over to their website and sign up now.
Check the mail for coupons
If you like kicking it old-school that’s OK too as Bath & Body Works will still send physical coupons to your home if you wish. Again, just make sure to give all your information to a Bath & Body Works employee and they’ll hook you up.
Stay tuned for price adjustments
Here’s a secret that a lot of shops use but rarely share with others. If you purchase an item from Bath & Body Works and see its price drop within 14 days you can go back and ask for a price adjustment. Just make sure to keep your receipts. You can also call or email Bath & Body Works customer service and they’ll handle the adjustment for you.
Take the survey at the bottom of your coupon
There’s one more reason to keep those receipts. At the bottom of each receipt, there is some tiny fine print asking shoppers to take a little survey. Do it. After finishing the survey you’ll likely be given a coupon code that can be used online. According to The Penny Hoarder, the coupon can be worth as much as $10 off of a $30 purchase.
