Bath & Body Works | Saving Money on Candle Day with Coupons

There has been so much said over this years Bath and Body Works Candle Sale Day that I didn't know that I could say anymore.  But, of course I will.

I was sitting here making a list of what I want and the overall cost of it all and I thought I would jot it down here too.

And even though the price is still holding fast at $8.50 per google ads promo I just saw, some still say their stores are going to have them for $8.00....while others say $8.95.  (shaking my head).

Barring any unforeseen changes from now, Thursday evening until opening Saturday morning, here is my cheat sheet for pricing. I will most likely be using my $10 off of $30 coupons with multiple transactions.

I am figuring my purchases at PA's 6% tax rate to get a per candle cost.
I am also not taking into account (since I don't have one and if I did my stores will NOT accept a $20/$50 coupon)  For any who do have it, and can use it the savings will be greater.
I have both 20% off coupons and $10 off of $30 coupons.  I was told they cannot be combined even if they came together.
I already used my only $15/$40 coupon so that is out of my equation.

A few thoughts:
Whatever the amount that the candles finally are, I am hoping for an easy sale with scents I am interested in and little to no issues getting in and out. I am already disappointed in the Creamy Nutmeg not being available until Sunday.  I look forward to checking out social media to see how everyone did and what goodies they found.
