The scent of this year’s Black Friday ad for the home-fragrance and body-care store has finally been picked up! Take a look at this year’s Bath & Body Works Black Friday ad:
Best Bath & Body Works Black Friday Deals From 2013
Body-care and home-fragrance retailer Bath & Body Works offers a broad assortment of soaps, sanitizers, candles and spa treatments. The home and beauty betterment store sells an eclectic array of gifts and accessories for those looking to add a sweet smell to every aspect of their lives.
In 2013, the fragrance specialty store didn’t disappoint on the biggest sale day of the season, as it continued its popular VIP grab bag Black Friday tradition. The highly anticipated VIP tote was stuffed with seven special items. Bath & Body Works displayed these valuable “merry must-haves” in a simple, no-clutter, single-page ad.
Also featured were exclusive one-day-only promotions offered throughout the post-Thanksgiving weekend. While the ad itself was slightly underwhelming visually, the deals it contained were anything but.
It’s no secret that Bath & Body Works Black Friday shoppers typically fight the crowds and frequent the store in hopes of securing the famed VIP bag. Last year, this main attraction included an impressive combination of mostly body-care products. The bag could be purchased for $20 with any $40 purchase and had a total retail value of more than $100. That’s a massive amount of savings.
The seven items tucked inside every black reusable tote bag were:
- Forever Midnight Body Cream
- Japanese Cherry Blossom Shea and Vitamin E Body Lotion
- Aromatherapy Eucalyptus Spearmint Body Wash and Foam Bath
- Fresh Sparkling Snow Gentle Foaming Hand Soap
- Champagne Toast Mini Candle
- Forever Red Mini Eau De Parfum
- Gauze Sponge
Beyond the bag, Bath & Body Works boasted other alluring specials as well. These day-only deals appealed to those shoppers who were looking for more than just bath products. For example, Saturday shoppers secured a holiday-themed Buttercream Mint Candle for just $10, while Sunday shoppers snagged fragrances from the Forever Collection Mini Fine Fragrance Mist collection for $10 each. Saturday patrons got an exclusive preview of the Velvet Sugar Full Size Fine Fragrance Mist.
While shoppers looking for tons of spectacular deals and doorbusters may have been left wanting more from the 2013 Bath & Body Works Black Friday deals, loyal shoppers were certainly thrilled by the packed VIP bag, seasonal holiday merchandise and exclusive offers. By continuing its VIP bag custom, Bath & Body Works certainly emphasized quality over quantity with last year’s Black Friday experience.
