Last (Semi-Annual) Chance!
Believe it or not, I only hit Bath & Body Works ONCE during this Semi-Annual Sale…it was the first day of the sale, so they had lots of stuff, but the discounts weren’t there.
About a week in though, they had a really good coupon code – 20% off AND free shipping, so I loaded up my cart with hand soaps, plus some of the Aromatherapy line was 75% off, so I decided to try “Orange Flower Sandalwood” Body Wash and Ultimate Hydration Cream – it’s really good! Most orange products are sickly sweet, but the Sandalwood gives it a nice woody undertone.
Technically, I guess I hit the sale twice…I believe that TODAY is the last day of the sale, so go get some soap!
When you hit the Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale a few days before the end, you save yourself A LOT of money…that’s because all that’s left are the dregs and there are not many good deals!
I only spent about $14 – I bought a couple of “Strawberry Poundcake” Shower Gels at 75%, a “Vampire Blood” Single Wick Candle, and some sour goo lip gloss for Lil. I didn’t even get to use a coupon!
$2.95 Hand Soap, now with Coupon Stacking!
This past Saturday was $2.95 Hand Soap day!
I bought my 20 bottle limit…and was pleased to find that this year, they allowed coupon stacking! I was able to use my 20% off coupon, which brought the bottle price down to $2.21/$2.22 each. I was also able to get a free body product, so I chose a Shower Gel in “Strawberry Snowflakes”. I really wanted more “Strawberry Poundcake”, but they did not have any. Maybe I’ll get lucky at the After-Christmas Semi-Annual Sale.
According to the receipt, I spent $47.46 and saved $124.25.
Oops, I did it again…I went wild at Bath & Body Works.
I was planning on going in person, but Lily was at Band Camp and I promised her that I wouldn’t go without her…but then I got an email with 20% and free shipping…and I lost all of my senses. I’m not gonna outline every single thing that came in the box…it was A LOT. I got 11 Wallflower Refills ($2.80 each with discount) and 14 Hand Soaps ($2.60 each with discount). I added only one scent to my shower – “Fresh Cut Lilacs” – I got Shower Gel, Fine Fragrance Mist & Ultimate Hydration Body Cream ($3.16 each with discount). I got Lily “Waikiki Beach Coconut” Shower Gel ($3.16 with discount) to match some shampoo she likes. I splurged on a “Pink Lilac & Vanilla” 3-wick candle ($9.56 with discount) and a “Cacao Rose” Essential Oil Mist ($6.20 with discount) for my pillows. The receipt doesn’t say how much I saved, but it must have been at least $125.
When Lily got back from Band Camp though, we took a peek at our local store, since I still had my $10 off $40 coupon. There was this lady there shopping – we think she was a PLANT – and she kept having me smell candles and I ended up buying a bunch of 7oz candles…but they were only $3.07! I got myself a loofah, but I let Lily pick out some random bath stuff – I hope she likes smelling like “Cucumber Melon” Shower Gel and “Dreamsicle” Body Spray. Ick. This receipt at least tells me that I saved $110 – I only spent $41!
The Semi-Annual Sale still has a few days left – go git ya some!
One of a Kind Haul
I am kind of a sucker for Bath & Body Works’ Mother’s Day bags/boxes/whatever. They don’t tag them for Mother’s Day any more…but I know that’s what they are.
This year’s thing was a box called “One of a Kind” and it was $40 with a $40 purchase. The box featured two new scents – “Butterfly” (not to be confused with “Butterfly Flower”, which is a totally different scent) and “Bubbly Rosé.” The notes in “Butterfly” are raspberry nectar (no idea what that smells like), iris and vanilla. I was happy to get Fragrance Mist, Body Lotion, Shower Gel, Antibacterial Hand Spray, and a single wick candle. The notes in “Bubbly Rosé” are pink rosé, blood orange and cranberry. I feel like I would like to wear this on my body – but the products included were a three wick candle, Foaming Hand Soap and Lip Gloss. I checked B&BW’s site – they DO sell “Bubbly Rosé” body products…note to self, remember this for the upcoming Semi-Annual Sale next month.
To get to $40, I took advantage of a $2.95 Hand Soap sale. I bought 20, which is way more than $40, but still a smoking deal. I wasn’t feeling like going to an actual store, so I placed an order online – $6.99 shipping is a small price to pay to be able to stay in bed. I was also psyched that I was able to use the 25% off mailer coupon – SCORE!
Still a Little Sale Left…
That’s right, there’s still a little Semi Annual Sale left at Bath & Body Works. I bopped in a few days ago to see what was 75%.
I have never heard of “Whipped Rose Latte”, but roses and coffee? Yes, please. It’s a pleasant, homey scent – nothing like you’d expect a rose scent to be like. The only product left was Body Cream (75% off), so that’s all I got. My husband sniffed it and HATED it…sigh, so the cream is relegated to my office.
The only 75% off Hand Soap was “Boardwalk Vanilla Cone”, so I just got one. I also grabbed 3 more 75% off Wallflower Refills.
Lily wanted the Tea Tree & Peppermint Essential Oil Mist, but I am not sure what for. It wasn’t 75% off – it was $4.95.
I got more coupons in the mail a few days ago…should I make another visit?
Watch out for that Semi!
…And just like that, the Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale is upon us!
Since the sale just started, I took it easy on the hand soap – only 4 made it into my bag. The sale hand soaps were still $3.50 each, plus, I just stocked up.
I DID stock up on $3.50 Wallflower Refills – I didn’t mean to buy 8, but my child kept putting them into my cart!
I have been wanting to try the “Rose” scent, so I jumped on 50% off Body Lotion and Shower Gel. I let Lily pick a Shower Gel and she got “Berry Waffle Cone” for 75% off.
I got a $10 off $40 coupon in the mail – nothing in my email yet. I need another coupon so I can go back!
$2.95 Hand Soap
I only had a dozen or so bottles of Hand Soap under my sink – it was very nearly a soap emergency!
Bath & Body Works to the rescue – they had $2.95 Hand Soaps last Saturday. I bought 20.
I was a little annoyed that they wouldn’t allow me to stack my 20% off coupon with the sale – they’ve done that in the past. They did let me stack the free product coupon, so I let Lily pick out a body wash. She chose “Champagne Apple & Honey”. I was intrigued by the scent, so I also picked a Hand Soap in that scent.
The receipt said I saved $103.50 – not bad, not bad at all.
Double Semi Annual
I hit this summer’s Semi Annual Sale twice, so I figured I might as well cover them at the same time.
My first trip was the first week of the sale, at my closest location. Right as you walk in, there is a huge display of 75% off items. I got back-up Body Creams in “Kaleidoscope” and “Chocolate Covered Cherry”, as well as trying out a few new scents. I got Shower Gel/Body Cream combos of two scents from the Aromatherapy line: “Sunrise Yoga” and “Hot Spring Spa”. They both smell amazing and quite different than the floral/sweet scents filling up my shower. I finished off my haul with a few 75% off Hand Soaps and $3.50 Wallflower refills. After using my $10 off $40 mailer, I ended up spending $39, but according to my receipt, I saved $122!
My second haul from a different location was quite small. I got Lily a 75% off “Cherry Limeade” Body Spray/Lotion combo and a 75% off “Capri” Shower Gel for the husband. This location had bath poofs, so I stocked up! I spent $21 here, but only saved $32.
Sale Before the Sale
Although we’re in deep into the Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale, right BEFORE that sale started, I got an email that ALL Hand Soaps were $3.95…with a $10 off $40 coupon AND free shipping. I jumped right on that!
I picked lucky 13 different Hand Soaps, which brought the price down to $3.18. Not bad, but if I was better at math, I would’ve just bought 11. If I’d have only bought 11, then the price would’ve been $2.57 each!
I am currently using the “Fresh Cut Lilacs” in my bathroom. I have been OBSESSED with lilacs lately – I’m thinking about planting a bush.
