A Bath & Body Works sale isn't uncommon, but the best time to stock up at the chain is during its semi-annual sales. Fortunately, it's pretty consistent about the timing of these events, as well as the kinds of discounts it offers. Read on for everything you need to know about Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sales.

When Is the Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale?

While a Bath & Body Works sale can happen at any time, the big semi-annual sales occur around the same days in June and December every year. The last couple of years, the summer sale has kicked off on June 4, which leads us to believe it'll do so again in 2019. Additionally, the summer sale should last until the end of the month or even go into early July. Last year's summer semi-annual sale continued until July 5.

Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sales typically start in June and December.

What about the winter Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale? Well, it tends to kick off on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, or the day after Christmas. The sale then lasts through the second or third week of January, giving you plenty of time to stock up on all your favorite cold-weather scents.

What Discounts Will You See?

Whether you shop the summer sale, the winter one, or both, you're likely to find discounts of at least 50%. The maximum discount we've seen is for up to 75% off. A Bath & Body Works coupon sometimes gets added in, too, such as one taking an extra 20% off select orders. The retailer has previously offered free shipping on select purchases, as well.

What Will Be on Sale?

Often the discounts apply sitewide, giving you an excellent chance to snag all your aromatic favorites. Specifically, we tend to see specialty body care items and the popular 3-wick candles go for 50% off. Also look for hand soaps and similar items to start at only $3 each. Additionally, fragrances — both ones for the home and perfumes — tend to be part of the sale.

How to Get Bath & Body Works Free Shipping

Bath & Body Works doesn't always offer free shipping. However, sales are usually a good chance to take advantage of this perk, which tends to apply to minimum orders between $30 and $50. Those amounts might seem high, but considering the retailer's regular shipping prices, it's a pretty decent deal. (Normally you'll spend $4 or $9.99 on shipping for orders under $10, or $5.99 on orders over $10.)

My wife always bought ten bottles of the Jasmine Vanilla body wash and lotion but they have discontinued it so we rarely if ever shop there for anything anymore. Maybe a decision maker with Bath and Body workers will see this and bring it back. One can hope it did smell great on her.
