We are pretty damn diligent in our efforts to keep up with Bath & Body Works sales. For example, we keep track of when each one starts and ends. Plus we can tell you which have the best offers on what. But this year the retailer surprised us with a Bath & Body Works Back-to-School sale, including 13 days of deals. BBW literally came out with a bang, kicking the sale off on July 11 with 40% off sitewide. So, yeah, you could’ve even scored 40% off their new hand soap refill cartons that day. It ended on July 23.

The deals changed each day, covering everything from candles to hand sanitizer.

Bath & Body Works Back-to-School Sale is a new 13-day event that started in July 2023.

The semi-annual sale ended on July 2, 2023 so we thought it would be a minute before BBW would come back with any major deals. Yet they came barreling in with the Bath & Body Works Back-to-School Sale, new in 2023. The sale started on Tuesday, July 11, and ran through July 23, 2023, for a full 13 days. However, the deals weren’t the same every day.

The first day of the sale was major. They offered 40% off sitewide and a free shipping code SCHOOLPREP for orders over $50. As it continued, different deals with rotated through daily, or every couple of days.
