What's included in the Kroger Candle Day sale?

When you shop the Kroger Candle Day sale, all filled jar candles originally priced up to $19.99 are just $6 each. The deal includes brands like Tuscany, Candle-Lite, and Yankee Candle 12-ounce jars, plus loads of others varieties. No coupons are needed, as these jar candles will automatically ring up as $6 at checkout.

Keep in mind, though, that the varieties and scents might vary depending on the store.

You can shop the sale in-store or by placing a Kroger grocery pickup order online, but the selection will be better in store.

Compared to Bath & Body Works' Candle Day, Kroger's sale is actually a better deal.

By now, most candle lovers are aware of the in-person shopping event that is Bath & Body Works Candle Day. But when it comes to bang for your buck per ounce of candle, Kroger's Candle Day sale actually has the edge.

With Bath & Body Works' Candle Day sale, all their popular three-wick candles — usually priced at $24.95 for 14.5 ounces — get marked down to $9.95. This means you'll be paying about $0.68 per ounce during the B&BW Candle Day Sale in 2023.

But with Kroger Candle Day, all candles are priced at $6, including 18-ounce candles. So you could be paying as low as $0.33 per ounce with the Kroger sale.

An added benefit of Kroger's sale is that you can avoid the busy store and order online for pickup or delivery. With Bath & Body Works Candle Day, they typically pause their "Buy online, Pick up in-store" option because candle inventory moves too fast.

Even compared to the Yankee Candle Semi-Annual Sale, Kroger prices are at least 26% cheaper.

We always see tons of Yankee Candle deals from retailers like Amazon, Macy's, Kohl's, and even Walmart. And Yankee Candle hosts their own semi-annual Yankee Candle Sale twice a year — once in the summer and again starting on Dec. 26.

But with their Semi-Annual sale, their prices are still higher per ounce compared to the Yankee candle prices during the Kroger Candle Day sale.

During the last Yankee Candle Semi-Annual Sale, we found their large jar candles (22 ounces) go for $15 each. This made them $0.68 per ounce if you shopped from Yankee Candle directly — still higher than the Kroger Candle Day's price for the Yankee Candle 12-ounce size ($0.50 per ounce).
