If you wake up to wallflowers, three-wick candles and sudsy hand soap, you're a Bath & Body Works fan. This is how you save on all your favorite fragrances.

1. Sign up for the loyalty rewards program

By entering your email address at the bottom of the Bath & Body Works homepage you will be added to the retailer's mailing list - expect plenty of coupons and promotions in your inbox.

But if you shop at Bath & Body Works regularly — or are just there for a one-time purchase — it's worth signing up forLoyalty Rewards Program. You will need to provide some basic information such as your name, email address and phone number.

Loyalty Rewards Program members not only learn about special offers and receive coupons like you do when you join the email mailing list, but also receive additional discounts and even a free full size product just for signing up. You are also eligible to receive text messages with discount codes and announcements of upcoming sales.

You also collect points with every purchase that you can redeem for products.

2. Sign up for Snail Mail Coupons

You can also request snail mail coupons by subscribing to the Bath & Body Works email mailing list. Finding the login page can be a bit trickier, but you can select the option to add your address on theSubmit a request page.

Printed coupons are less common than the ones that flood your email inbox, but they also come with some additional (and often better) perks.

For example, if you shop online, you can only use one promotional code per online order. So if you have a free shipping code, you must forgo all other discounts (except on Black Friday when you can use multiple codes).

But some of the paper coupons allow you to "stack" coupons in store - so you can get 20% off your purchase plus a free item (usually travel size). Be sure to read the fine print before you go to the store.

pro tip

Another reason to sign up for the loyalty rewards program: while promotional codes cannot be stacked, you can apply up to eight reward codes per online order.

3. Receive a birthday present

Among the information you will be asked for when you enroll in the Bath & Body Works rewards program is your birthday. It's to your advantage to reveal your special day as you'll receive a full-size free product coupon worth up to $16.50 this month.

Bonus: Since this is a paper coupon, you can take it to the store and stack it with other snail mail coupons.

4. Become a loyal fan on social media

Don't stop at the mailing lists if you're a Bath & Body Works fan - subscribe to the retailer's social media channels for more offers.

Like many companies, Bath & Body Works is often the first to share special offers and promotions with its loyal fans.

Here are links for hisFacebook,Instagram,PinterestAndTwitterChannels.

5. Take receipt surveys

Not only canParticipating in surveys brings you an extra income, you can also get discounts on your favorite products.

Bath & Body Works often includes survey offers on the bottom of its receipts — even for small purchases. After completing the survey, you will receive a validation code. Write the code on the receipt and bring it with you on your next visit to get a discount.

6. Hit the big sales

A key to saving at Bath & Body Works?

Timed coordination.

The retailer has semi-annual sales in January and June — and you can use coupons on top of the 50% to 75% discounts.

Because the products have a long shelf life (two to three years, according to a company tweet), these are good opportunities to stock up.

"Go right at the beginning of the sale if you're looking for clearance items, or towards the end if you want the biggest discounts," said Heather Comparetto, a former Bath & Body Works employee.

If you love certain items at Bath & Body Works, it's worth joining the mailing list for the exact dates of product-specific sales like Candle Day and Body Care Day.

And Black Friday at Bath & Body Works is legendary for its deals - and its VIP gift bags. Also, it's usually the only day you can stack digital coupons.

7. Bath & Body Works online kaufen

Bath & Body Works often has different offers depending on whether you're shopping online or in person, so check the website before you head to the store.

If you haven't signed up for the email, at least google "Bath & Body Works coupons" to see what comes up. Maybe you can find oneCoupon Codefor free shipping or other discounts.

If you're a Loyalty Rewards member, remember to stack these rewards codes to snag some serious deals.

If you're shopping online but don't want to pay for shipping (or would rather use your one promo code for a discount instead of free shipping), you can pick up the products in store to save on the flat $6.99 shipping cost.

8. Buy discounted gift cards

Don't want to wait for a sale (or just want to save even more)? You can find discounted Bath & Body Works gift cards at sites likeLiftAndCardCash.

Note: If you use one of the aforementioned shopping portals and aCash Back Credit CardIf you buy the gift card you get even more bang for your buck.

9. Use Expired Bath & Body Works Coupons (Maybe)

Bath & Body Works previously offered a three-day grace period for expired coupons. Although this policy has officially ended, online fans have mentioned that some stores continue to accept coupons that expired within this period.

No guarantees on this savings strategy, but it never hurts to ask.

10. Keep an eye on prices

Like many retailers, Bath & Body Works offers a 14-day price guarantee on its items.

So monitor the prices of anything you've bought and act quickly if you see them going down, and it only applies to in-store purchases.

Price adjustments do not apply to flash sales or one-day sales.

And worst of all, you have to expire any coupon or promotional code you used in the original purchase, and then repurchase the item at the retail price. So make sure that the discount really saves you money.

11. Take advantage of the 100% guarantee

Even the most devoted Bath & Body Works fan will occasionally buy a product they don't love.

If it happens to you, don't eat the loss.

Instead, take advantage of the merchant's generosity100% satisfaction guarantee: "If at any time you are not completely satisfied with the quality of our products, you may return them to any of our Bath & Body Works or White Barn stores in the United States for a full refund."

Savings like this? They just make scents, um, sense.
