If you love Bath & Body Works but hate paying full price, you are going to want to read on! You’ll find some amazing ways to save money the next time you shop.
We’ve done our research and consulted with people who are employed with Bath & Body Works to find out the insider secrets to saving money. If you use these money saving tips, you save big money every single time you shop!
HOW TO SAVE MONEY AT BATH & BODY WORKS
Give them your number and address
The next time you are in the store and you get asked for your address or phone number, don’t be hesitant to share it. Doing so can get some great coupons mailed to your house! They often send mailers out with coupons you will not find elsewhere. Not only that but you will know when every sale starts!
Use the satisfaction guarantee
Bath & Body Works wants all customers to love their purchases. But, that doesn’t always happen. You may buy something and love the scent in the store, but get home and realize it gives you a headache.
Don’t toss it – go back to the store! Bath & Body Works offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you don’t love what you bought, return it and get a refund.
Shop the semi-annual sales
Each January and June, Bath & Body Works has their semi-annual sale. You can save as much as 75% off the list price. And, to make these deals even sweeter, you can use coupons as well! It’s the perfect time of the year to stock up!
One more tip is to make sure you grab the VIP bag each November. They offer this for around $20 when you spend $40. That bag usually has more than $100 in merchandise. You can keep those items for yourself or have several gifts you can give to people on your holiday list.
Don’t toss your expired coupons
While they may not work online, you can usually use your expired coupons in the store. Most managers honor a three-day grace period when it comes to redeeming expired coupons. Just ask!
Join their Rewards Program
Bath & Body Works has a rewards program for people who reside in certain parts of the country. If you live in Charlotte, Raleigh-Durham, Los Angeles or Chicago, you can sign up for their program.
You will get a welcome offer when you sign up. Each time you shop you earn points toward getting free products! And, when you celebrate your birthday each year, you will get a special treat!
(Keep your fingers crossed that they extend this promotion to more areas in the country soon!!)
Shop with discounted gift cards
One sneaky trick many people do not know about is buying gift cards at a discount. You get the full value of the card, but you pay less than that. For example, you may find a $50 card for $47 online. It may look like it is “only” $3 saved, but that is $3 in your pocket. You may be lucky enough to save 10% or more on your gift cards!!
Check out the discounts and deals Gift Card Granny has to offer on their site. If they don’t have what you want right now, you can always set up an alert so you know when there is one ready for you to snag.
Exchange unopened products
If you don’t love the scent you purchased, you can exchange it for free for the one you do! Just stop by your store and they will work with you to make sure you have the scent you love.
Exchange broken wallflowers for new ones
If your wallflower stops working, you don’t have to throw it away. Take it into the store and they will exchange it for a new one. They won’t upgrade the style, but at least you aren’t out your money!
You are seldom allowed to stack coupons. If you try this online, you’ll see that you are limited to just one code per order. But, if you shop in the store on Black Friday, you can!
They will mail coupons to subscribers (another reason to make sure you are signed up). You can use these coupons with the sale. They will allow you to stack a value off a purchase, free item coupon, and overall discount offer together!
It is the one day place that may be worth fighting crowds to shop in. Maybe.
Take advantage of free wrapping
Did you know that you can get a bag and ribbon when you shop in the store? If you need to give someone a gift, make sure you take full advantage of this! When you leave you’ll not only have a gift for someone, you won’t have to make an extra stop to buy wrapping paper.
Get paid to shop online
Many consumers would rather click their mouse or tap their phone to shop. It is more convenient than making a trip to the store. But, make sure you tap on the right link!
Sign up with Ebates where you can earn cash back on every purchase you make. Click on the links on their site to shop and when you do, you’ll activate your cash back offer. Once your purchase is finalized, you’ll see the refund amount in your account within 48 hours. Every 3 months you get a big fat check in the mail. Yes, an actual check.
Get coupons and offers sent to you
If you sign up for emails, you will get coupons and offers right in your inbox. They’ll send you coupons you can use in the store, as well as the promotional code you can enter to save when shopping online.
In addition to that, follow them on social media where they often share special coupon codes and offers. You are already scrolling anyhow, so why not add them to your following lists!
Make sure you take the surveys
When you make a purchase check your receipt! If you happen to see a survey listed at the bottom, make sure you participate! As a thank you, they normally sent you a coupon code which is often $10 off a $30 purchase.
