Victoria Really Does Have a Secret…
I went to an outlet mall a few days ago and while in Bath & Body Works I saw Victoria’s Secret PINK products.
After seeing the display I had to question myself which store I was in. I thought I was in Bath & Body Works. Utterly confused, I asked the associate who confirmed Bath & Body Works is owned by the same parent company [Limited Brands] as Victoria’s Secret. I shared that the Bath & Body Works at the mall I normally shop at does not sell Victoria’s Secret products. And, I was told each Bath & Body Works store can be different.
I got home and searched bathandbodyworks.com to find something even more mind-boggling. (Hopefully, my screenshots don’t make you squint.)
On Victoria Secret’s own website, a 8.4 oz. bottle of PINK with a Splash in the Fresh & Clean scent is $18. Or, you can get 2 for $24 or 3 for $30. A discount for multiples seems like a nice deal, right?

One would think.
And one would think Bath & Body Works offers the same deal.
Bath & Body Works actually has a lower price on Victoria’s Secret products!
Check this… the same product (PINK mist in Fresh & Clean), in the same size (8.4 oz.), is the same cost for one ($18). But when you buy 2 Bath & Body Works only charges $20, and for 3 Bath & Body Works charges $25.
So by changing stores alone, you’d save $5.

PLUS, Bath & Body Works is known for having regular discounts like 20% your entire purchase (use coupon code: GARDEN20), $1 shipping on $25+ (use coupon code: GIFTS25), and $10 off $30 or more (use coupon code: S125938).
As a frugal shopper, I’m going to buy Victoria’s Secret body care products from Bath & Body Works, because when I do, my cost is significantly less than buying the same products at Victoria’s Secret.
At Bath & Body Works I can buy 3 PINK Fresh & Clean body mists for $25, use a 20% off coupon code, and pay with discount Bath & Body gift cards to take home what I want for $17.60 (plus tax).
Alternatively, I could keep shopping for these same products at Victoria’s Secret, but in the end I would pay $30 (plus tax). Sometimes Victoria’s Secret has coupons, so that might take a little off, and sometimes Plastic Jungle has Victoria’s Secret discount gift cards. But even those discounts do not make the cost equal.
Who would have known you could buy Victoria’s Secret body care anywhere else than Victoria’s Secret AND PAY LESS?!
