Today we got our hands on the ad for Bath & Body Works’ famous Black Friday VIP Bag. While BBW does some great sales on Black Friday, the VIP Bag is their big crowd-pleaser both in stores and online. The ad doesn’t give pricing information but for the last 4 years the VIP Bag has been $20 with a $40 purchase. In the past each bag counted towards your purchase of another bag. So you can spend $40 on candles and buy a bag for $20. Now you’re at $60. Just spend $20 more on hand soaps and you qualify for VIP Bag #2.
Black Friday is also historically one of only two days that Bath & Body Works officially allows coupon stacking (The other being Super Saturday, the last Saturday before Christmas). This means start saving your $10 off $30 survey coupons now. Remember that even though they allow stacking, you still need to meet the qualifications for each coupon.
We suggest figuring out how many VIP Bags you intend to buy and how many coupons you plan on using and mapping out your game plan before you go in the store. Historically the big promotions at Bath & Body Works on Black Friday are 2 for $20 3-wick candles, Buy 3 Get 3 on Signature Collection Body Care items, and other smaller sales like $5 hand cream or Buy 2 Get 1 on Aromatherapy and True Blue Spa items. While Bath & Body Works doesn’t announce their sales sometimes until the morning of Black Friday, these promotions are a pretty sure bet.
Here is a list of what’s included in the Bath & Body Works Black Friday 2012 VIP Bag. BBW advertises it as $100 value with 7 products.
