Best Things to Buy During the Victoria's Secret Semi-Annual Sale:

What to Expect From the Victoria's Secret Semi-Annual Sale

Are you eagerly awaiting the famed semi-annual sale at Victoria's Secret? Read on to see when it will start, and what kind of deals you can expect from the popular lingerie retailer.

What Is the Victoria's Secret Semi-Annual Sale?

Victoria's Secret, the most popular lingerie retailer in the country, is well-known for its semi-annual sales, in which the store offers clearance-level prices on a variety of bras, panties, and clothing.

Women in need of budget-friendly wares flock to these sales en masse, so it's important to be aware of when the sales will start, and how to make the most of the savings.

And luckily, we're fast approaching 2017's winter semi-annual sale!

When Are the 2017 Semi-Annual Sales?

As the name would suggest, Victoria's Secret's famed semi-annual sale is held twice each year. Typically, the store will offer the sale in June, along with late December and January. We already saw this year's June installment, and 2016's winter sale started on December 29. As a result, we expect this season's semi-annual sale to start around December 28.

The next Victoria's Secret semi-annual sale will most likely start on December 28.

The sales typically last two to four weeks. If you plan to shop in-store, consider shopping at the beginning of the sale, before your local store is picked over by customers. This is especially important if you fall into a commonly worn size category, as these can be the first items to sell out.

What Discounts Will Victoria's Secret Offer?

The store will usually take up to 70% off a variety of items. While you might want to shop early in order to take advantage of a more diverse selection of stock (as noted above), if you're patient, the store often releases additional discounts as the sale progresses.

For example, in the past, Victoria's Secret has deepened its overall discounts after about two weeks, while it has also offered additional coupons at up to three weeks. Look for shipping coupons that offer free delivery with a minimum purchase, or a code that takes an extra discount, like 20% off already-reduced prices.

What Should You Buy?

Bras will drop to around $10 apiece and up, but be on the lookout for deals that offer lower per-unit prices when you buy multiples. For example, last year we saw a deal that offered two cotton Perfect Coverage bras for $49.50. Panties deals will also be popular — last year we saw a deal for five pairs for $15.
