With Christmas less than a week away, some shoppers are scrambling to find a few last-minute gifts. Warm new pajamas for Christmas morning or something sexy-yet-sporty for the new year’s workout regimen may be just the ticket.
Victoria’s Secret, known for its sometimes pricey intimates, sleepwear, Black Friday totes – and ever-present sales – may be just the place to shop.
What’s on Sale Now?
Current sales and specials include pajama sets marked down to $39.50 (from $49.50) and two pairs of yoga pants or leggings for $55 (one for $34.50). Sports fans may also enjoy the PINK NFL line, which offers boyfriend pants at more than 40% off.
Or those wishfully thinking of summer could opt for a swimsuit in the clearance section instead. Separate bottoms are on sale for $3.99, and tops for $7.99, while many two-piece sets are 50% or more off.
Intimates are on sale as well. Two PINK Wear Everywhere bras are $42 and Cotton Lingerie and Sexy Tee bras are two for $49.50. (Sports bras aren’t on sale, but using the online buying method we describe below, shoppers can still save.) Cotton panties are five for $26, but it may be best to wait for the next seven-for-$26 panty sale, a Victoria’s Secret staple.
Stocking stuffer ideas include the VS Fantasies body care line, whose fragrance mist and lotions are three for $25. Or opt for PINK lip gloss or nail paint at two for $15.
Shop Online and Use These Tips
Although heading to the store guarantees an on-time present, those shopping online will be able to get the biggest bang for their buck. Plus, through 5 p.m. Dec. 20, orders of more than $100 receive free two-day Express shipping with coupon code SHIP2DAY, allowing the presents to slip under the tree just barely in time.
Victoria’s Secret allows up to three offer codes to be used when checking out online, so if you also tack on 75BRACELET and SHOWBAGRMN, you can receive a free fashion show cosmetics bag and Victoria’s Secret bracelet with your order. Alternatively, those buying shoes or clothing can receive 20% off a single item with code VS20STYLE.
Before making a purchase, check GiftCardGranny.com to buy someone else’s unwanted Victoria’s Secret gift card at a discounted rate. Filter results to show only online gift cards, also called eCode cards, that have a value of more than $100 in order to use the free shipping code above. Off the bat, this can be a 5-13% savings.
Next, use Upromise.com to receive an additional 5% cash back on the total purchase price at Victoria’s Secret.
Using this method, we were able to get the actual cost of a $135 order down to $111.13.
Or Wait Until January for the Biggest Savings
For those who aren’t in need of a last-minute Christmas present, it may be best to wait until January, when Victoria’s Secret is expected to hold its next Semi-Annual Sale.
Loyal customers often grab the most-sought-after items and sizes within the first few days of the twice-yearly event. As some merchandise can be discounted as much as 70%, it’s no surprise that stock online and in-store doesn’t last long.
Be sure to sign up for the email newsletter or download the smartphone app to receive the latest company news and coupon codes. Frequent shoppers should also consider applying for the Victoria’s Secret rewards credit card for further savings, including $15 off the first purchase, coupons for free panties, and early access to the Semi-Annual Sale and other special events.
