Bath and Body Works were having a sale and not gonna lie, my previous haul (this) was kinda’ disappointing, so on July 8 2020 I placed another online order with them.
A lot of stuff was missing (out of stock, because of the sale) but they refunded me (my money was back in my account) in a little under two weeks.
Everything arrived individually wrapped in bubble wrap and there was no breakage nor leakage.
These Hand Soaps were from my U.S. B&BW Spring Haul (here).
Typically, Hand Soaps retail for $6.50 but these babies had been reduced to $3 each.
These are the Shower Gels that I purchased in my 1st US Bath & Body Works Online Order (dis)!
Fair warning, it’s gonna’ be a really long post!
As if the previous promos (KD 1/750 Showers Gels and KD 2/500 Body Lotions) weren’t enough, seemingly out of the blue, Bath & Body Works had a Flash Sale… only days before “Black Friday“!
– 3-wick Candles were reduced from KD 8 to KD 3 each
– Shower Gels were reduced from KD 5/500 for KD 2/750
– Mini Perfume Sprays (travel size eau de parfums) were reduced from KD 4/500 to KD 1/750
– Hand Soaps were reduced from KD 3/750 to KD 1/750
– Fragrance Mists were reduced from KD 7 toKD 2/750
– Travel Size Fragrance Mists were reduced from KD 3/250 to KD 1/750
– Travel Size Body Lotions were reduced from KD 2/750 to KD 1/750
– Room Sprays were reduced from KD 2/750 to KD 1/750
– Wallflower Refills were reduced from KD 2/250 to KD 1
– Scentportable Holders (car fragrance) were reduced to KD 1
The total for this online order was KD 50/500 (free shipping)
Once again, I was feeling pretty smug about placing my order when I did, because the 40% Off promo they had for “Black Friday” (or “Cyber Week” as they call it on the site), was pretty disappointing and not nearly as good as the one they had during the Flash Sale.
I even included the percentage saved next to each item (nicked from their site, I didn’t math this time lol) just to show you guys the difference. It adds up, you guys.
Needless to say, I did not purchase anything online or in-store from our local Bath&Body Works during “Black Friday” (hard pass).
I placed my order on November 21 and everything (including the wasteful pages and pages of the receipt/invoice) arrived safely and well-packaged the next day.
They switched out the previous online promo on full size Showers Gels (dis) for a newer promo on full size Body Lotions. Plus, the 5 for KD 3 on PocketBacs was still ongoing.
I really didn’t want to risk any of them going out of stock and having to wait until next Winter to get my hands on Vanilla Bean Noel and Hot Cocoa & Cream and possibly never seeing Bali Black Coconut Sands or Bahamas Pink Passionfruit & Banana Flower again (who knew if they were going to re-release them again, next Summer).
So, 3 days after my previous online order (here), I placed another online order with Bath&Body Works. It was too good of a deal to pass up!
– Body Lotions were reduced from KD 5/500 to KD 2/500 each
– PocketBacs were 5 for KD 3
The total for this online order was KD 13
I placed my order on November 19 and it arrived safely the next day (free shipping over KD 9)
As you can see, everything arrived well packaged (including the pages and pages of receipt/invoice).
Currently, for “Black Friday” they’ve got 40% Off Sitewide and free shipping, meaning Body Lotions were reduced from KD 5/500 to KD 3/300.
Once again, I was glad I didn’t wait until “Black Friday” and got the Body Lotions for 50% Off instead of 40% Off.
The new Fall Traditions 2019 Collection popped up online and as time went on, they added a “sneak peak” of the Holiday 2018 Collection (which was being marketed as “new” even though it was last year’s collection).
I’ve spoken about the local Bath&Body Works tricking customers into believing they were purchasing the latest Holiday Collection except it was always already 12 months old, several times now.
That said, beggars can’t be choosers and when they had an online deal on Shower Gels, it was just too good to pass up. So, I quickly placed my order and picked up some of the stuff I’d been lusting after (sadly, Hot Cocoa & Cream Shower Gel was excluded from the promo and was going for full price… sneaky, sneaky).
– Shower Gels were reduced from KD 5/500 to KD 1/750 each
– PocketBacs were 5 for KD 3
The total for this online order was KD 10
I placed my order on November 16 and it arrived safely the next day (free shipping over KD 9)
Currently, for “Black Friday” they’ve got 40% Off Sitewide and free shipping, meaning Shower Gels were reduced from KD 5/500 to KD 3/300.
So… I’m pretty much patting myself on the back for not waiting and taking advantage of the previous deal and purchasing these Shower Gels for KD 1/750 a pop (she said ever so smugly)!
