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 to accompany the New Year’s workout regimen may be just the ticket. And Victoria’s Secret, known for their affordable intimates, sleepwear, Black Friday totes (and ever-present sales), may be the place to shop.
What’s on Sale
Current sales and specials include pajama sets marked down to $39.50 (from $49.50) and 2 pairs of yoga pants or leggings for $55 (one for $34.50). Sports fans may also enjoy the PINK NFL line, where boyfriend pants are over 40 percent off. Or, those wishfully thinking of the warm 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 2-piece sets are 50 percent off or more.
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 method we describe below shoppers will still be able to save. Cotton panties are five for $26, however it may be best to wait for the next 7 for $26 panty sale, a Victoria’s Secret staple. Stocking stuffer ideas include the VS Fantasies body care line, where fragrance mist and lotions are 3 for $25. Or, PINK lip gloss or nail paint are 2 for $15.

Or Wait Until January for the Biggest Savings
For those that 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 their next Semi-Annual Sale. Loyal customers often grab the most sought after items, and sizes, within the first few days. With some merchandise discounted by as much as 70 percent it’s no surprise that stock online and in-store doesn’t last long.

Frequent shoppers should also consider applying for the Victoria’s Secret rewards credit card for further savings, including $15 off their first purchase, coupons for free panties, and early access to the Semi-Annual Sale and other special events.
