If you’re wondering where all the 2023 Bath & Body Works free shipping coupons are … well, you and me both. I’ve been all-in for Bath & Body Works since the early 2000s when Cucumber Melon body mist was the official scent of my high school locker room. And while I’ve graduated to a more sophisticated fragrance profile (I’m looking at you, A Thousand Wishes), I’m still a regular, especially at And I’m a big fan of the store’s generous return policy.

But the one roadblock I’m constantly running into is the lack of Bath & Body Works free shipping options. Their fees, to be blunt, are just crappy. There’s no perfect workaround, not even during Bath & Body Works Black Friday or Cyber Monday sales. But there are a few secret ways to get Bath & Body Works free shipping in 2023. I’ll break it all down for you.

Text BBW to 57299 and be the first to know about the best Bath & Body Works deals.


1. Does Bath & Body works have free shipping?

No, not really. In a world where we can order a $2 item from Amazon and get it shipped for free in two days, I feel some type of way about Bath & Body Works still wanting to charge me shipping on big orders. Call me an entitled millennial, but when I’m spending $65 and Bath & Body Works still requires I pay for shipping, I get peeved.

Does Bath & Body Works offer international shipping?

If you consider Canada to be international, then yes. But otherwise? No. Bath & Body Works only ships to the 50 U.S. states.


2. Bath & Body Works charges $6.99 for orders over $10. It’ll cost ya $9.99 for orders less than that.

Bath & Body Works’ standard shipping for orders over $10 is $6.99. And for orders under the $10 threshold, they charge $9.99 for shipping, which basically means you should never, EVER place small orders at Bath & Body Works online. EVER.

In a world where online shopping is booming, the fact that Bath & Body Works has made zero changes to their shipping policies is disappointing. In fact, their shipping went up by a buck. But with shipping prices increasing, I’m not surprised Bath & Body Works raised their prices, too.

However, we’ve seen signs that positive changes may be around the corner, and there are occasional free-shipping opportunities, too. Which brings us to our next tip …


3. Are Bath & Body Works free shipping codes a thing?

Bath & Body Works online shoppers can expect free shipping codes about once every five weeks or so. Signing up for their emails is a good way to be notified, but most promo codes will also appear at the top of the Bath & Body Works website. Sometimes two promos will roll up to the same code, like a free gift with purchase and free shipping on $50 orders.

We love these kinds of deals, so don’t forget to sign up for KCL emails and text alerts. We’ll let you know as soon as we see a Bath & Body Works coupon for free shipping.


4. Only one coupon code can be applied per online order.

Many of the best deals we find for Bath & Body Works require a coupon code, like the ones we find in the Bath & Body Works mail coupons that come out every couple of months. These deals include coupons for a free product (often with no required purchase), percent-off coupons (usually 20% – 30%), or dollar-off coupons (usually $10 off $40).

Even if we’re lucky enough to find a great promo code and a free shipping code at the same time, we’re still out of luck. Bath & Body Works limits shoppers to one coupon code per order. This means we would have to choose one or the other. In most cases, this ruins the deal.



5. Bath & Body works offers store pickup.

The Bath & Body Works free pickup program launched in summer 2021 at select locations, and that has (fortunately) expanded immensely. At online checkout, enter your ZIP code to find a participating location near you.

Online pickup orders require that you select only the items that are in stock at the participating location. There’s still no “ship-to-store” option at Bath & Body Works.

Online pickup orders are typically ready within four business hours, and you have two days to pick it up before it gets canceled. An authorization hold will be placed on your credit card when you order online, but you won’t be charged until you actually pick up your order. You’ll need a photo ID or a confirmation email when you do.


6. Free store pickup may not be an option during big sale days at Bath & Body Works.

On busy promotion days, like during Bath & Body Works Candle Day and Body Care Day, some participating stores may remove free store pickup as an option for online shoppers. For these big sale days, it may be worth paying the $6.99 shipping fee instead of fighting the crowds. A friend and I always split the shipping cost every year during Candle Day.


7. We caught Bath & Body Works testing free no-rush shipping.

One morning in late Aug. 2021, our team lit up with excitement about what turned out to only be a test. We spotted a free no-rush shipping option on the Bath & Body Works website. Unfortunately, we haven’t seen it pop up again. But maybe there’s still hope.


8. Get Bath & Body Works text alerts from KCL.
