The best possible deals you can find all year long at Bath & Body Works appear during the Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale. You’re going to find deeper discounts than they have during Bath & Body Works Black Friday, Body Care Day, and even the annual Candle Day.

It’s a clearance sale, so if you’re not too picky about getting soaps, lotions, or candles that are a season or two behind — think pine tree or cranberry scents in June — then you’ll be in prime position to get an average of 75% off. 

Best of all? The Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale happens twice a year — in June/July and December/January.

Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale is a twice-a-year, multi-week store-wide clearance sale.

The Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale is a massive clearance event where you can find some of the best deals of the year — beating their most high-profile sales on some products. 

The sale happens twice a year — in early June and after Christmas — and although they’re both massive clearance events, they’re a little bit different. The June sale is nearly a month long with lots of markdowns on winter and spring products, while the December sale is typically about three weeks long and focuses on fall and holiday clearance.

KCL predicts the next Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale will begin June 8, 2024.


Bath & Body Works hasn’t officially announced the next date for their June Semi-Annual Sale, but based on what they've done in recent years, we here at KCL predict that it’ll take place starting Saturday, June 8, 2024, running through Sunday, July 7.

There’s also a December Semi-Annual Sale that always starts Dec. 26 — the day after Christmas — but it’s shorter than the July sale — typically just over 3 weeks long. 

How do we make our prediction?

We've made our guess based on when Bath & Body Works has held their Semi-Annual Sales since 2017. The June 8 start date is based on the fact that the sale tends to be in early June, but has never been earlier than June 3. So instead of June 1, it would be a week later, on Saturday, June 8. The length of the summer sale varies, but we believe they'll stick to the 31-day sale of the last two years, meaning it would run through Sunday, July 7.

Here are the recent start dates for the June Semi-Annual Clearance Sale:

  • Saturday, June 3, 2023 (31 days)

  • Saturday June 11, 2022 (31 days)

  • Thursday, June 24, 2021 (26 days)

  • Saturday, June 6, 2020 (59 days)

  • Monday, June 3, 2019 (53 days)

  • Monday, June 4, 2018 (32 days)

  • Monday, June 5, 2017 (42 days)

Here are the recent start dates for the December Semi-Annual Sale:

  • Tuesday, Dec. 26, 2023 (25 days)

  • Monday, Dec. 26, 2022 (22 days)

  • Sunday, Dec. 26, 2021 (26 days)

  • Saturday, Dec. 26, 2020 (23 days)

  • Thursday, Dec. 26, 2019 (25 days)

  • Wednesday, Dec. 26, 2018 (23 days)

  • Tuesday, Dec. 26, 2017 (27 days)

Be sure to shop the Semi-Annual Sale in store for the steepest markdowns and to avoid a shipping fee.

An obvious reason to shop in store is that choosing online means you’d have to contend with the annoying lack of Bath & Body Works free shipping. While promo codes for free shipping over $50 will pop in and out throughout the sale, remember that Bath & Body Works only allows one promo code per order. This means if you’re using the free ship code, you can’t use another coupon code that may be available at the same time. If you shop in store at Bath & Body Works, they’ll let you combine multiple coupons if you have them.

Seventy-five percent off has been the standard for years and years of Semi-Annual sales at Bath & Body Works, with the exception of 2020 when things got a bit wonky and only hovered around 50% off.

The goal is always to save 75%.

The best deals are on "select" fragrances that have overrun inventory (a fancy way of saying "we made too much") and either seasonal, discontinued, or overstocked classic fragrances.

Because Bath & Body Works doesn't typically put their merchandise on clearance the rest of the year, the Semi-Annual Sale is the primary way they manage their inventory.

That means that whatever pumpkin scents don't sell by December end up in the winter Semi-Annual Sale. Valentine's Day merchandise will resurface in the summer sale, as will discontinued scents and even some overstocked bestsellers.

The Bath & Body Works coupon stack is the Holy Grail.

Get a one-time $10 off $30 coupon code by joining Bath & Body Works Rewards.

The Bath & Body Works Rewards program is available nationwide! When you first sign up, you'll receive a coupon for $10 off a $30 purchase. The coupon code is valid in stores and online.

Because of the 30-days-from-sign-up expiration date, don't take the steps to get this coupon until the week before the next anticipated Semi-Annual Sale. If you already have an account, sign up your partner or your mom or the mail carrier — or anyone else willing to share that code with you once they receive it.

And once you sign up, make sure you link your in-store purchases to your account so you can earn points! Scan the in-app barcode or share your phone number with the cashier.

You'll earn one point for every dollar you spend. Once you spend $100, you'll get a Reward added to your "wallet" for one free product valued up to $16.95.

The best deals online are almost always in the final two days of the sale.

In all the sales we've studied, one of the most consistent findings is the deals always get better online in the last one to two days of the sale. Hopefully by the time the prices drop, our $10 off coupons will still be valid for an even Krazier deal.

Shop the sale early, then go back for a price adjustment.

Bath & Body Works updated their price adjustment and return policies back in Sept. 2022. Their policy now states that both online and in-store purchases are eligible for a one time price adjustment within 14 days of the original purchase. That means you can shop the week before the Semi-Annual Sale and return with your receipt to receive the difference credited back to your original form of payment. Here are the important catches to the price adjustment policy:

  • Certain sales are not eligible for price adjustments, including flash sales, select promotions lasting 48 hours or less, Candle Day, and email offers. So you'll have to make a return with your receipt and then repurchase the item at the new cheaper price.


    is considered separate from your local store. Because of this, price adjustments don't work across party lines. Online purchases can receive an online price adjustment if you submit a contact form. In-store price adjustments require an original receipt.

TIP: Keep the official policy handy should you run into any questions in the store.

Is there Bath & Body Works clearance?

Technically, there's not a Bath & Body Works clearance sale. But if you're shopping the Semi-Annual Sale online, you could think of the last two days of the sale as a clearance of sorts. This is the retailer's last push to get everything off the proverbial shelves. If you're shopping in store, you'll see discounts get deeper, but you'll also see inventory disappear, which is why I recommend you don't wait to shop in-store.
