I try very hard not to get sucked into the smells, sights and sounds when I walk into a store. I know how stores try to create the PERFECT shopping environment and I am determined to be strong and not cave.
This resolve completely disappears when I walk into a Bath and Body Works.
The stores are so pretty and they smell yummy without being overwhelming (a la Yankee Candle). There are red SALE signs everywhere and yet I rarely just stumble across fantastic deals. There is a science to snagging a truly good deal at Bath and Body Works!
Here are my tips:
1. Share Your E-mail: Every time I check out at Bath and Body Works they ask me for my e-mail address and I ALWAYS give it to them (you can give them your couponing e-mail address). You WILL get an e-mail from them every single day (be warned) but they also send out great coupons!
2. Facebook: There are only a few companies that I recommend you permanently “like” on Facebook but Bath and Body works is one of them. Whenever they release a new scent they generally put a coupon for a small free item on their wall. They also warn you about sales like their semi-annual through social media!
3. Take the Surveys: Most of the time when you shop at Bath and Body Works you will get a survey offer on the bottom of your receipt- even when you only make a small purchase. Once you call (or go online) and complete the survey they will give you a coupon code. Generally it is $10 off of $30.
