Stop by Right after the Holidays
Bath and Body Works always drops the prices on certain products right after each holiday season. You have to move quickly to take advantage of these deals but you can save a great deal of money in doing so.

When you see large gift baskets for sale inside the store, take note of the various items that are packaged inside. Very often you can break down the basket and take care of several gift giving opportunities right there. Some of these baskets are priced very well when you consider all of the items that are inside.
Shop in January and June
January and June are the best months to shop because this is the time that the prices are the lowest. There are wonderful sales to take advantage of and it is never a better time to stock up.
Never Miss a Black Friday
Black Friday is very popular in the larger stores like Walmart and Target but it is often overlooked in specialty stores like this one. The specials that are run at Bath and Body Works are quite incredible and certainly worth the crowds every year.
Every year Bath and Body Works offers awesome sales + their VIP Black Friday Bag is filled with Full Size Products and available to purchase starting on Friday Morning at most stores!

When you do come across a fantastic bargain, buy in bulk just as you would at any other store. Between the body soaps, shampoos, lotions and other household goods, you certainly will end up using it.
Shop the Clearance Section for New Scents
The best time to try out a new scent is when it is marked down considerably in the clearance section. Pretty much every store has a clearance section where they put items that are being closed out or they have overstock of. Visit this area every time you go into the store to see what hidden treasures are available.
