Even sweeter, you can opt to purchase these candles online and pick up at a location near you for free to avoid the rush!

Note: If your Kroger store is showing low or no stock online, it may still be worth a trip in store. My store was unpacking boxes and boxes of Yankee and Woodwick candles this morning so the shelves were surprisingly full!

    I don’t see the woodwork or Yankee in Kroger search…could they already be gone? Omg

    • Susie

      I found several options for both, but only after I signed in. HTH

    • Bonnie

      I just ordered eight 22-oz Yankee Candle jars for pickup a few minutes ago.

  2. Kim Tennyson

    Won’t deliver to my zip😢

  3. Mama2Nine

    Hmm 🤔 weirdest smells ever. Nothing normal. Tobacco flavored, really? 😂
    Pass. Reason they are 5 dollars!

    • sue

      My dad smoked a pipe. I love the tobacco scented candles!! Brings back happy memories…

  4. Melissa

    Fred meyer also has 50% off all their Christmas candy and gift sets with digital coupon.

      Fry’s too! Great deal for stocking stuffers!

  5. Mayalynn

    • Michele

      Was the sale only for December 5th?

  6. Janelle

    Great deal for those who are local to Kroger!

  7. SamShops

    Thank you!!!Just placed my order at Frys for click list pickup in a few hours! So excited!

    • SamShops

      Update: I picked up 8 Yankee Candles. Only one was large 22oz, the others were 12oz. Pretty happy!

  8. kwags14

    When I’m trying to pick up in store it wants to charge me 4.95??

    • Tammy

      They are back to charging a fee for pick-up or delivery orders that are under $35.

  9. Amber

    My store was cleared out by 11:30 this afternoon. Great deal for anyone who was able to find some.

  10. anthonyn345

    There’s some in granburry Texas… the only location that pops up on.mine :/

  11. Kristina

    Are there any stores that will do a price match?

  12. guerita_bonita2002

    I RAN to my Kroger and they don’t even sell Yankee Candle. They only had the cheaper ones, not as good of a value. I would have loved to get my hands on some of the others lol.

    • DebJ

      Our Kroger had them in a different aisle than the cheaper candles.

  13. Carol S Oakley

    Purchased 5 for pickup on Monday. I’m not sure how many I’ll actually end up with. Whatever it’s a great deal! Thanks for sharing

    • obler

      You probably won’t get the sale price, as they are only this price today. They don’t charge you until you pick them up and use that days prices. Maybe you can go today after all. Good luck.

      • Susie

        Yeah, my pickup order is tomorrow because there were no slots left today. I called customer service and asked if they would be the same price tomorrow even the Yankee and Woodwick candles, and she said yes. She was very sure about it, but I am still skeptical lol. We’ll see what happens. Worst comes to worst, I will just return them

        • B.haskins

          I placed an order at 10am to be picked up at 1. They cancelled my order because they sold out. 🤨

      • aggiejen

        I saw your comment and called my store. My pick up is Monday. The pick up guy told me they will price adjust so here’s hoping!

  14. mnemosyne786

    I ordered a bunch for pick up later today. We will see if they cancel my order or not!

  15. Nicole

    Darn, I ordered 8 for pickup and got the notification that they were unable to fulfill the order

    • Wren

      Nicole, yes… I started to do pickup then decided to just run over to my store. Well they had NONE of several of the ones I had started to do with pickup. So I’m sure orders are getting cancelled.

  16. 3WonkyDogs

    Won’t ship to my zip code
    I’m in Jacksonville:(

  17. Tracy

    Grabbed ten! Thank you you for posting

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re welcome, Tracy!

  18. Sherri

    My store doesn’t have any of these 2 kinds.😔

  19. WB

    I was able to get 15 candles for gifts. My Kroger had plenty—probably because there were no signs indicating the candle sale. Thanks so much for the post giving the heads up!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You bet!

  20. Liz

    The Kroger near me closed but these candles are displayed at Harris Teeter. The Candle-lite ones are amazing and some come in beautiful jars (with peel off branding stickers) and gorgeous lids (with no branding) so they will fantastic for repurposing. If you set up a Kroger account, there is free shipping with a $35 purchase. You might want to go to HT to see which scents you like.

  21. chantellluckasson

    I got 6 large Yankee Candles for the price of 1!!!

  22. DebJ

    My daughter just went to our Kroger here in Middle TN and they were in a different aisle than the cheaper candles, so look around. She actually found them across from the diapers which was strange. Good luck!

  23. Mama2Nine

    Why are my comments always waiting for moderation? 😂😬🤷🏼‍♀️😅

    • Shoppingfan

      I asked the same question. I thought it was all of us. 🤷🏽‍♀️

  24. mry30022

    We got 2 yankee candles that were normally $20 each! Even gave me an excuse to use a coupon I got in the mail for a free bag of doritos! 🙂 we saved over $30! Thanks for the heads up!

    • dtbrock79

      Got to love when deals stack! I was able to use a free product with my BBW candle day order. I was especially happy because since we moved, the BBW here doesn’t use the app and I would have lost out on redeeming it. Enjoy your Doritos!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yay! SO awesome! You’re very welcome! Happy you could score such great savings!

  25. zee

    I went to my king soopers, if you have a super center king soopers, your chance is better in getting it there. I managed to get the last 8 large Yankee candles (mountain lodge scent – only scent left) for $5.45. I am in Colorado. The smaller king soopers didn’t have any. Good luck everyone, and thanks Hip2Save!

    • JJ

      Hi Zee! I’m also in CO and my King Soopers only had the medium-sized Yankee Candles, but there was Balsam, Cinnamon, and Christmas Cookie. I got a few, but would’ve preferred the large Mountain Lodge ones! 😂

      • Colorado Amy

        I am in northern Colorado and checked online first to see what the stores around here had. The Marketplace store had the big jars but that was in the opposite direction of my other errands so I went to the regular store and got the 12 oz size, which is still a good deal at $5. I didn’t even know King Soopers sold Yankee. They were in the Christmas aisle with other candles. The sale price wasn’t posted so they had plenty. I got two each of the three scents. Thanks for posting H2S.

  26. mom2three

    I ordered for pickup several hours ago then they called and said they didn’t have any and wouldn’t give me a rain check or see about shipping. Not pleased with Kroger

  27. Sham

    I went inside, an awesome selection! I got 7!! Thanks!!!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)


  28. coll1107

    I wish I were near a Kroger! I LOVE Woodwick candles.

    • Jill

      I’m in Maryland. Nowhere near a Kroger. I ordered 7 candles for $35 & free shipping. It might be an option for you. Although, I think they are getting picked over online too. Some sold out while they were in my cart.

  29. Darla

    No woodwork at my local in MI. Only small Yankee candles. May try super center.

  30. Manisha Patel

    Yeah I see Yankee and wood wick for 5$ online Houston TX thank you !

  31. Pam

    Thanks so much for posting this! I decided to make a trip to my local Kroger. They had a great selection of various brands including Yankee, and I purchased 10. They had the Woodwick candles in the smaller size in about 10 different scents, but I didn’t care for any of them lol.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      So glad you got this deal, Pam!

  32. ren

    AWESOME!! Thanks so much! Just got 10 large candles for $50. Amazing

  33. Sharon

    If I give these as gifts and the recipient doesn’t like the scent, can they take it to a Yankee Candle store & exchange it? I know they used to do that but not sure if they still do.
    Thanks for all your great posts! You’ve been a real lifesaver during these hard times!

  34. Jody

    Make sure you check out the Christmas aisle for the Yankee candles! The candle aisle was already all sold out but while getting my Christmas candy I noticed a random shelf w/ some left! Score! Thank you so much these $5 Yankees will make great random gifts for people on my list!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the tip, Jody! It sure is helpful!

  35. Queenie

    My Smiths only has a cheap brand. 🙁

  36. renee-5

    I went at 9:30am was only able to find 8 12oz yankee. My stores don’t have the larger. I also used the house coupon so I paid $4.61 with tax. I also went to two stores. The first was sold out of yankee but got some really nice 19.6oz Chesapeake Bay candles that were regularly $19.99 as well. I’m thankful I needed a few things from the 1/2 holiday gift sets. I would have never got any going later when I say this post.

  37. carmroth

    I bought a total of six candles. Some of them are Yankee candles & some are wood wick. I bought about 3 Christmas scents & 3 others scents. My store had the Christmas candles with the Christmas candy, decorations, etc… Plus, an another aisle near the frozen food & stationary was the regular scented ones. When my son & I went today around 2pm between the two aisles there was over two hundred different scented candles. It was hard to choose which ones I wanted with some many styles & scents to buy. Thank you for letting us know about this great buy!!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for telling us what you found at your store! Sounds like a great trip!

  38. AliciaE777

    I got 12 but had to travel because first 2 stores didn’t have any large jars even in stock 😕. But tye big king soopers had tons!

  39. Jada

    So SAD! Wahhhh! Went to 2 differ Krogers in Houston, TX and they did not carry the Woodstick brand and only 1 store carried the 12 oz. yankee candles w/ only 3 scents. Nothing like what I see from the original post. Those BIG glass jars…sniff! Sniff!

    • llc

      Which store had yankees? I’m off I-10 near ikea

  40. Krystal

    I got 6!! Thank you so much!!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Woohoo! You’re welcome, Krystal!

  41. REBECCA Gridley

    Are these good brands for candles? Anyone confirm on the scent they put off? Is it pretty strong?

  42. BlueWaterGirl

    I checked on 4 Kroger’s online and none mentioned Woodwick (which I LOVE) nor Yankee. I was sooo bummed. I did stop at one just in case and no, neither brand there. Sad. 😟

  43. Robin

    There is no way on to search the entire country for the larger Woodwick candles. I want to buy 7 so badly and have the free shipping at $35. Do any of you happen to know a Kroger anywhere that still has the larger Woodwick candles??? Thanks. I’m sad!

  44. Darla

    You had to online at each individual store. Kroger Marketplace had a huge selection but all of the large Yankee Candles were gone but there were a plethora of different brands to choose from. I loaded up!! I think I bought 12! And half are for me at least!

  45. Janna

    Fantastic deal – many thanks for posting! I ran to kroger as soon as I got the text, and got some great deals! I also pointed it out to other shoppers, as there weren’t many signs. Woo hoo!!!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      How kind! You’re welcome, Janna!

  46. Linh

    Bought 5 candles today!! Thank you!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re very welcome!

    • DebJ

      They’re still $5 today?!!!

      • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

        Hi there! It seems this sale has now ended.

  47. Amber

    Went to Kroger today, Candle-lite brand 18oz are on sale for $5 we bought a few. Theres smaller ones, 10oz On sale for about $3.50!
