Using coupons on Candle Day is totally a thing. Actually, we totally recommend using any Bath & Body Works coupons on the first day of the sale, 'cause that's when the stock is at its peak. If you're new to Bath & Body Works Rewards, you get a $10 off $30 coupon when you join. It shows up within 72 hours and lasts for 30 days. So, sign up for My Bath & Body Rewards at least three days before Candle Day in 2024. Sometimes, you might get mailer coupons that overlap with Candle Day. Just fill out this form online and choose Mailing Address Add/Update to get on the list. New to the rewards program? You'll get a $10 off $30 coupon, valid both in-store and online. This offer is for all new members, and you'll find it in your BBW Wallet within 72 hours of joining.


Since the coupon expires 30 days after you sign up, don't get it too early the week before Candle Day is best. If you already have an account, maybe sign up your partner, mom, or even your mail carrier, so you can share that code. For online shopping on Candle Day, you need a digital coupon code for the discount. Just a heads up, you can only use one code per online order, so no stacking coupons. Honestly, shopping in-store is better because of the whole free shipping issue with Bath & Body Works. Plus, the store pickup option usually isn't available on Candle Day, so you'll likely have to pay the $6.99 shipping fee on every online order, no matter how big your haul is.


Candle Day Prices and History


So, when we started tracking Bath & Body Works Candle Day back in 2012, three-wick candles were $8 each year. Then in 2015, prices went up by $0.50 every other year until the pandemic hit. In 2020, they raised prices two years in a row. By 2021, three-wick candles jumped from $9.95 to $10.25. Luckily, in 2022, prices dropped back to $9.95, and they stayed the same in 2023. Fingers crossed for 2024. Normally, a three-wick candle goes for $26.95. During other sales, prices can drop to anywhere from $11.95 to $15.50. During the last two Semi-Annual Sales, we found a few candles for $6.64, but those were holiday scents from the past. If you're into stocking up on candles for gifts, there's no better time to buy than Candle Day in early December.


Candle Day In-store and Online Sale

In 2023, Bath & Body Works Rewards members got early access on the first day, both online, starting at 6 a.m. ET, and in-store. Some stores opened at 5 a.m. local time. Then the sale opened to non-members for the next two days. However inventory goes fast on the first day, so joining the free loyalty program is a good idea.
