Semi-annual sales are precisely what they sound like — sales that come around twice a year. Most retailers are on a similar cycle: One sale happens in January, and the other follows in or around June.

If you’re itching to spend those holiday gift cards you received, we rounded up seven semi-annual sales that you can shop right now with discounts on everything from clothing to candles.

1. Victoria’s Secret

The Victoria’s Secret Semi-Annual Sale is perhaps the most anticipated of them all. The bra and panty discount event happens on a different date each year, with loyal shoppers scrambling to pinpoint the start. The deals kicked off Dec. 29 in stores but are still underway and have been extended online as well.

Highlights include: bras for as low as $9.99, panties for as low as $3.99 and sport apparel for as low as $12.99. Through Jan. 8, get free shipping on qualifying orders of $65 or more with code SHIP65FREE.

2. Bath & Body Works

The Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale is available in stores and online. It features up to 50% off select three-wick candles, select hand soaps and specialty body care. Certain mists and lotions are up to 75% off.

Additionally, you’ll notice that some sale items are called farewell fragrances. These scents (including Mad About You and Pink Chiffon) will soon be leaving stores to become online exclusives.

3. Kirkland’s

From a sale for your body to a sale for your home, the Kirkland’s Semi-Annual Sale is all about furniture, wall art and home decor. Select lamps are up to 25% off, and some featured items are up to 50% off.

And you never know what unique treasures you’ll find. One of the deals is a $48 markdown on a wine cabinet shaped like a telephone booth.

4. Charming Charlie

The Charming Charlie Semi-Annual Sale offers up to 75% off original prices on select jewelry and accessory styles. Here’s the breakdown of some of the savings: Buy one, get one free clearance apparel, two for $15 sunglasses and three for $15 socks.
