If you missed out on some of Bath & Body Works’ before-Christmas deals, the retailer is offering another chance to save some serious cash.

The retailer’s Semi-Annual Sale begins online and in stores on Sunday, Dec. 26! While we won’t know the exact deals until the sale actually begins, we can tell you you’ll find select clearance items are up to 75% off. Previous semi-annual sales lasted around four weeks, so you can expect new deals and markdowns to be added each week of the sale.

The sale is the last chance to score beloved holiday fragrances before Bath & Body Works closes the Christmas vault until next year and a great time to use any gift cards you got for Christmas. They’ve also brought back throwback favorites including Happy Vibes, Cucumber Melon and Dark Kiss just for the sale.

Inventory may vary online and from store to store, and the sale is only good while supplies last. If shopping in-store, it’s important to note things may be different than previous semi-annual sales in an effort to keep everyone safe. Clearance bins have been removed, which means you won’t be able to ‘bin-dive’ looking for your favorite scent, but you should be able to find what you’re looking for on shelves.

Last year’s after-Christmas semi-annual sale saw some pretty big discounts, including 50% off select 3-wick candles, 50-75% off select body care items and 50% off select hand soaps.

If the same items are marked down by the same amount this year, you’ll be able to get select 3-wick candles for $12.75 or less, including Christmas scents you may want to stock up on for next year like Sugared Snickerdoodle, Cookies with Santa, Bright Christmas Morning and Frosted Coconut Snowball.

Body care is typically priced between $12.50-$15.50 and last year’s semi-annual sale saw them drop to $4.95. Items in the body care lineup include lotions, mists and shower gels.

Of course, you can also never have too much hand soap, so if that is included in the sale, it is a good time to stock up. Priced at $7.50, if they are 50% off, they would be around $3.75 each.
