From candles to fragrances, Bath & Body Works products draw you in every time you visit the mall. It’s so hard to walk past, right? But just because something smells good doesn’t mean it fits into your budget.
That’s why The Penny Hoarder is helping us make Bath & Body Works more affordable with these 10 insider tips.
1. Share your phone number and email.
We know. Another message in the inbox. But giving Bath & Body Works your phone number and email will get you some great coupons.
“It can [be] annoying to always give your cell number and email address every time you check out, even if you’re getting free stuff…but you want more free stuff, right?” Jenn Peters of Because I’m Cheap said to Penny Hoarder. “So when the cashier asks for it, fork it over!”
Peters also recommends calling the company at 1-800-756-5005 each season to ask to be added to the promotions list. She says this often gets you coupons for a free travel-size item or free signature-size item with $10 purchase.
2. Become an online fan.
Like, post and tweet. Connecting with Bath & Body Works on social media because the company shares special deals and promotions with loyal online fans.
3. Save your receipt and take the survey.
Following the instructions found at the bottom of your receipt will often get you a discount, according to The Penny Hoarder. Laura Oliver with A Frugal Chick says the discounts are generally $10 to $30 off.
4. Save the date!
Timing is key to saving at Bath & Body Works. The company has semi-annual sales in January and June. You can use your coupons on top of the major discounts. Products are typically 50 to 75 percent off.
The Krazy Coupon Lady offers this tip for the biggest shopping day of the year: “Normally on Black Friday, a VIP bag is offered for $20 when you spend $40. Inside the bag is usually over $100 of merchandise.”
5. Shop online.
When buying products online, you can “stack deals,” according to The Penny Hoarder. Before making an online purchase, check Cashback Monitor to see how much cash back you’ll be getting by using various credit cards or reward cards. Then search for Bath & Body Works coupons to use on top of your cash-back savings.
