If there’s one rule to shopping for Yankee Candle, it’s that you should never pay full price. You can find Yankee Candle deals pretty much any time of the year at all sorts of different retailers. So you should seriously never pay full price. As long as you know where to look, you’re bound to find a Yankee Candle sale. And twice a year, you’re guaranteed to save during the Semi-Annual Sale. The last one started on Christmas Day, Dec. 25, 2023, and ran for roughly three weeks.

We found votives for $0.56, car vent clips for $3, small jar candles as low as $4, and mini trio sets for just $5. Ultimately your goal is to save 75% during a Yankee Candle sale, but you’ll want to get in on the action early. The best deals go fast.

You can also find sales and markdowns through an authorized retailer like Macy’s or Kohl’s. And if all else fails, there's always the Yankee Candle Deal of the Week or the Yankee Candle Outlet — which you can totally shop online.

The Yankee Candle Semi-Annual Sale is a twice-a-year, three-week sale on candles and accessories.

Twice a year, during the Semi-Annual Sale, Yankee Candle offers significant discounts on a variety of candles and accessories. Although Yankee Candle hosts a number of sales throughout the year, this one — which happens around Memorial Day and Christmas every year — is arguably the best one of the year. 

 These sales aren't exclusive to Yankee Candle shops or their website; authorized retailers like Macy’s or Kohl’s also participate. Shoppers can find deals on votives, jar candles, car vent clips, and more, with savings of up to 75%. 

KCL predicts the next Yankee Candle Semi-Annual Sale will take place Friday, May 24, 2024.


Yankee Candle hasn’t officially announced the next date for their Semi-Annual Sale, but based on what they've done in recent years, we here at KCL predict that it’ll take place starting Friday, May 24, 2024.

How do we make our prediction?

Although the Yankee sale has bounced around over the years, it’s typically timed with Memorial Day weekend. The past two years it has taken place the Friday before Memorial Day. We predict the sale will once again happen at the beginning of Memorial Day weekend — Friday, May 24, 2024. 

Here are the last several years’ worth of Yankee Candle Semi-Annual Sales, which inform our prediction:

  • Friday, May 26, 2023

  • Friday, May 27, 2022

  • Monday, May 31, 2021

When is the next Yankee Candle Semi-Annual Sale?

The Yankee Candle Semi-Annual Sale happens twice a year. Once right after Christmas and then typically again in May or June. We predict the next Yankee Candle sale will drop in June 2024.

The last Yankee Candle sale started on Dec. 25, 2023.


The winter sale ended right around Jan. 20, 2024. When you shop this sale, you can expect to score up to 75% off bestselling Yankee Candle products.

Which sale is better: Bath & Body Works or Yankee Candle?

Ironically (or maybe not … ), the Yankee Candle Semi-Annual Sale happens right around the same time as the Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale. And while you’d ideally opt to buy your Bath & Body Works candles during Candle Day for the absolute lowest prices of the year, that doesn’t mean we don’t scoop a few up during the Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale, too.

But how do the prices compare? Bath & Body Works’ small candles will go as low as $5.20 each (regularly $15.50) during their Semi-Annual Sale. Compare that to the cost of a small jar candle from Yankee Candle, which goes as low as $5 (regularly $14) during their Semi-Annual Sale. These candle prices are pretty comparable for the sizes, so it really comes down to availability and what scents you like.

TIP: I find that the Bath & Body Works’ Semi-Annual Sale offers savings on more year-round scents, while the Yankee sale is more for seasonal scents.

Look to the Yankee Candle 'Deal of the Week' for savings year-round.

If there isn't a formal sale, you can always rely on Yankee Candle to have a 'Deal of the Week' on their website. This can range from markdowns on jar candles to to 5 for $25 ScentPlug Refills.
