    The code loveit is not working

    • Isra

      It worked for me! You have to be in the reward zip code for it to work, I think if you are trying to place an order outside of it using the code won’t work.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Are you a rewards member?

  2. HailsYeah

    I can’t get the code to work for the sale. Says it’s invalid. Waited in queue over an hour for this.

  3. Robin

    I was on the site after a hour of waiting, I had 5 candles in my bag went to do the whole check out and returned to complete my order and everything in my bag was gone. Very disappointed.

  4. runnergirl838

    As any good Hip2Saver would do, it’s good to track this throughout the year in terms of price. When they’re under $10 with coupons, I might buy them versus waiting for candle day. For me, it’s a fun event during the holiday season though. 🙂 I should add, I live close to my mall and I’m in and out it in 30 minutes. I wouldn’t want to go after that! 🙃

  5. Clair

    You should post the info for the $50 Kroger gift card I posted for $7.50 off. If you get five candles with it, they are $8.75 a piece.

  6. maryegorden

    Neither promo code worked after I waited an hour in the website cue. I wonder why I received the members email and given a cue line to wait in? I’m going to save more money shopping in the store. Good thing I’m retired. Nite nite, friends! I’ve going to drive to my store at 4:00 am with wheeled cart in tow. 🤪😱🤔

  7. nikiserrr22

    Waiting in a virtual line 😆🤣

  8. Kali

    Do you think it’s busy busy in suburban locations at opening hours? I really don’t feel like waking up that early

  9. Michele Jensen

    Again an Epic FAIL for Bath and Body Works. Last year was nightmare trying to buy candles on line and this year is no different. Been trying to buy candles since the sale started and neither code that I have been given (LOVEIT and BESTDAYEVER) are not working. I have had to get in line three times for it to tell me that the code does not work.

  10. Laurie Villotta

    Kroger is having their annual candle sale on their Tuscany 2 wick candle large jars for $6. Great smelling and burn to bottom. Save your money people.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the reminder. We have that posted here.

  11. eric6060

    Put in a different zip code one that will work. Then it will work and logon to your account

    A BBW employee told me they were bringing back Cafe Paris for candle day. Can anyone confirm?

    • lolisglez

      Hi, yes. I saw it at the store this evening. It was out with all the other ones. I don’t see them on line thou

      • maryegorden

        I’m waiting now for a store to open its doors. I’ve heard y’all talk about Paris Cafe so it’s on my wish list. 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻

        • maryegorden

          Operation Success at one of my suburban stores. That was exciting to shop with a few other early birds. 23 candles but may take a few back if my hubby doesn’t like the scents I got for him for the first time ever. Sales associate was super nice and helped me out with every scent I asked her to find quickly for me. A+++++

    • Willowcat

      Oh wow, thanks for that info. I want Paris Cafe in the wallflowers back!!

  13. Ruffinette

    Woohoo! Wrong zip code to join their rewards program so I was worried everything would be sold out by the time I was actually able to purchase. I got 18 candles in the scents I wanted at 5:20AM CT. Super excited to receive my order!

  14. taylorpate

    Don’t forget ladies to use your Ibotta e gift cards at check out and get cash back on your purchase😁. I always use that stcked on top of coupons stacked on top of BBW sales for maximum savings 🤣🙌

  15. APS

    Yay I just got back and there were not many people at my location and no line to checkout!!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      SWEET! Glad to hear it was easy shopping at your store!

  16. Lyn

    Yankee Candles have their medium size candle for 9.00 today.

  17. Isra

    Such a lovely shopping experience! All crates were ready to go, no lines, lots of smiles, full stock. Went after dkids drop-off, no standing outside at 4 am, and used my 20% on top. $8/ea is a win for me! I know there are cheaper candles that have the same scent, but BBW is just my favorite, they have the prettiest jars and decor on the outside, can’t compare. So glad I skipped online shopping/shipping charges and not being able to use my coupon.

  18. Keesh

    Anyone know when SAS starts ?

  19. MrsBK

    I hope they continue starting this sale on a Friday in store. Was way less busy and great selection.

  20. Anne

    My store last year was a 3 HOUR wait. I didn’t NOT wait. This year I drove by thinking I’m not going. Especially with my 5 year old. There was NO line and tons of candles… at noon! Yay!!! Glad I had my 20% coupon too!

  21. katie

    I tried to shop online but they were sold out of my regular scent, even at the member early access. So I ended up in store, which actually turned out great! I checked store hours online and they opened at 7am this morning. I was able to get in there and shop in peace, not to mention saved on shipping and was able to use my coupons. I got my candles and was home by 8am! That makes me happy.

  22. Debby

    Walked right in at 7:30 am – only about 8-10 people-loaded up with everything I wanted and was out in 10 minutes! Easiest candle sale ever!

    • Racquel

      I agree!!!

  23. redsoxgirl

    Went to my small local store around 5:30 pm. There were only about 5 other shoppers and I was able to use my $10 off 40 coupon, free item under $13.50, and free gift bag coupons.

  24. runnergirl838

    They were very hush hush about it this year. My store wouldn’t even tell me when I directly asked. Got there when they opened and was able to get and out in 10 minutes. My only mistake was not using my free item coupon. A fun morning!

  25. Melinda

    Has anyone received shipment notification from their online orders? I put mine in at 530 yesterday morning so hoping it’s not cancelled

  26. rachyb

    I happened to be in the mall yesterday, without my coupons, and saw an empty store at 2:30 in the afternoon. I went in and bought six candles. Then I drove home, got my coupons and went back. No lines. No wait. Fully stocked both times. The staff was ready and did amazing. Every year I avoid candle day because of the mayhem and crowds. I was so excited to see how they handled the candle day craziness yesterday!

  27. Shan

    I used Kroger gift card deal ($50 Gift Card for $43) and I had a $10 off $40 and free item with $10 purchase. I got 6 candles and Aroma Stress Relief Mist for $55 (essentially $48 out of pocket with gift card deal). Makes candles $8 or so including tax

  28. Mindy

    Our store opened at 6am. We arrived about 6:45am and no one was there except 4 employees stocking candles! Was nice to have the store to ourselves. Got our 6, used coupon, and out we went!
