1) Never Pay For Panties, Use Free Rewards

The best freebie that you can get from Victoria’s Secret is a free pair of panties. There are a few places where you can get a voucher for a free pair.

Victoria’s Secret Mailer: Every few months, you will get a free pantie award in the mail. The best thing about these rewards is that there is no purchase necessary to receive one.

Newsletter or App Sign-Ups: To take advantage of this type of offer, you need to purchase a pair of panties to get a free one. If you sign up for the newsletter or if your download the Victoria’s Secret app or the Pink Nation app, you will earn a free pair with a purchase.

Monthly Promotions: Each month, you will receive a coupon via email offering something free with a purchase. The reward differs each month.

2) If You Use Coupons, Stack 3 In a Single Transaction

Victoria’s Secret has three different types of coupons. They include:

Free Shipping: If you order from VictoriasSecret.com, shipping is free if you order over $99 worth of merchandise. You should keep your eye out for coupons that will offer free shipping if you order less than $99 or that will eliminate the shipping charge altogether.

Free Gift With Purchase: Victoria’s Secret is always sending out coupons that offer a free gift with purchase. It could be a pair of panties, a sports bra, a bag, etc.

Dollar or Percentage Off Coupons: Victoria’s Secret has coupons that offer things like $15 off a purchase of $100 or more or 25% off a bra.

Victoria’s Secret is pretty lenient when it comes to redeeming more than one coupon on just one purchase. This can help you get more for your money. Before heading to the store, be sure to read the fine print on your coupon. There could be certain restrictions that you need to know about.

3) Subscribe to the Catalog To Receive Monthly Freebies

If you haven’t subscribed to the Victoria’s Secret catalog yet, you should. When you are subscribed, you will receive monthly offers, such as a free pair of panties and a $15 bra. You will also receive a reward on your birthday. You don’t need to worry about Victoria’s Secret filling up your mailbox. They typically send one catalog each month along with a promotional mailer later on in the month.

4) Victoria’s Secret Will Adjust Prices for Up to 3 Weeks For Online Purchases

If you order something online or in the catalog and it is on sale two weeks later, the company will adjust the price as long as it hasn’t been longer than 3 weeks of the item’s ship date. To request the adjustment, you would need to call customer service at (800) 568-4288. When you call, you will need to have your order number, the product’s item number, and the price that the item is currently selling for.

5) Victoria’s Secret Will Adjust Prices For 14 Days on In-Store Purchases

When you shop at Victoria’s Secret, you should keep your receipt for at least two weeks. If the price of a product that you purchased in the store has dropped less than two weeks after your purchase, Victoria’s Secret will honor the lower price. If you aren’t that organized or if you forget to check what is on sale, you can use an app like Slice. It will monitor the amount of money that you spent on the items that you recently purchased. If there is a change in the price within the two week period, the app will send you a notification to let you know. This is especially helpful when Victoria’s Secret has their Semi-Annual sale.

6) Request Up To $500 In Free Gift Cards

Twice a year, Victoria’s Secret runs a promotion for one month called Secret Rewards. You will receive a secret reward card that will be valued at $10, $20, $50, $100, or $200. You will receive one with every purchase and you can redeem it the next month. You can also request a secret rewards card in the mail. You are allowed to request one card for each day that the promotion lasts. This means that if you submit a request each of the 30 days of the promotion, you can receive at least $300 in rewards cards. If you aren’t sure what a rewards card does, it is just like a gift card, however, you can only use one for each transaction.

7) The Best Times To Shop In The Store Are In January and May

When the Semi-Annual sale is announced, you should plan to be at the store on the first day as soon as it opens. If you wait until later in the day, you will need to fight other shoppers. If you want to be sure to find the items that you want in your size, you need to shop early. You should also save your receipt. You can take advantage of the 14-day adjustment window if the price of the item that you bought is even cheaper later on in the week.

Things You Should Know About the Sale:

  • Even though the price starts at 50% off, they can climb to 75% off later on in the week.
  • Go to the store a few times. Throughout the sale, the associates will continue to add new items to the sale.
  • You cannot stack coupons on Semi-Annual sale items.

8) The Best Times To Shop Online Are In December and April

The online Semi-Annual sales start a month before the in-store sale. You will find a larger selection online, however, the in-store deals are often better. If you are going to shop online, you will find the best deals on swimsuits and apparel. If you are planning to buy bras, underwear, and lingerie, you should wait until the in-store sale when the deals are better.

9) If You Are Going Shopping At Victoria’s Secret, Go on Friday

Victoria’s Secret often has Friday Fever sales. This is where you can buy two items and you receive a third item of the store’s choosing for free. You should also look out for Friday Fever Contests on Twitter and Instagram. This gives you a chance to win a $500 gift card.

10) Stack Multiple Freebies In a Single Transaction

If you come across the opportunity to stack multiple freebies, you should take advantage of it. You do, however, need to do your research ahead of time. You need to make sure that all of the items are stackable. At the bottom of each coupon, you will be able to read the rules regarding stacking. If you get lucky, you can get three free items on one single transaction.

11) Stock Up On Fragrances In January

You won’t find deals on fragrances the way you will on bras and panties. The best time to shop for fragrances is in January when the company is trying to deplete their stock of holiday gift sets. If you visit the store in January, you can get an entire gift set for the price of one item. This is huge.

12) Shop For Swimsuits In August and September

If you are going to shop for swimsuits, you should shop in August and September, even if you won’t be able to wear it until next year. When it comes to swimsuits, the price is often marked down on many styles to $9.99 during these months. Since the Victoria’s Secrets styles don’t really change from year to year, you can get something at the end of the summer at a huge discount that sells for full price the next season.

13) Save Extra Money with Discounted Gift Cards

If you are going to be shopping at Victoria’s Secret, you should first try to find a discounted gift card. There are reputable sites that sell these gift cards, such as Raise.com. If you can buy a $100 gift card at adiscount, you can save money.

14) Join Pink Nation For Additional Saving Opportunities

If you haven’t signed up for Pink Nation yet, you should. It is a free rewards program where you can earn free panties, member-only invitations, exclusive offers, and early access to the Secret Rewards promotion. As a member, you can request free Secret Rewards cards a week before the promotion even starts. This can give you at least $50 to spend.

15) Employees Get Free Bras and a 30% Discount

If you are looking for a new job or a second job, you should consider working at Victoria’s Secret. Not only will you get a 30% employee discount, each time a new bra is released, you get one for free.

16) Shop Online Before Driving To the Store

VictoriasSecret.com is separate from the store. This means that the store won’t match the online price and the website won’t match the in-store price. If you are going shopping at the store, you should check if the price of the item online. You should only buy online if you have a free shipping coupon or if you are planning to spend over $99. If not, the shipping cost will make the deal not worth it in the end.

17) Find All Offers and Promotions On the Victoria’s Secret App

If you don’t check your email daily and you hate newsletters, you should download the Victoria’s Secret app. It is available on Android and iPhone and when you download it, you can click on “Today’s Offers.” You will be able to see all of the promotions that are going on all in one place.

18) Get The Latest Freebies and Sales in the Victoria’s Secret Newsletter

If you check your mail daily and you don’t mind getting frequent newsletters, you can get the sales and promotional information in your email. Be warned, you might get 2 to 3 emails from Victoria’s Secret each day. If this is too much, you should consider opening a separate email account strictly for Victoria’s Secret.

19) You Can Use Your Angel Card at Bath & Body Works

A company called L Brands owns both Bath & Body Works and Victoria’s Secret. Since Bath & Body Works doesn’t have their own credit card, you can use your Angel card there. Just keep in mind that if you do, you won’t earn any Angel points.

20) Consider Getting A Victoria’s Secret Angels Card

If you are able to pay the balance on your Angel Card each month, you should consider getting one. The reason that you need to pay off the balance each month is because the APR is 24.99%. There are plenty of benefits available to you as a member.
