Where is the best Yankee Candle sale?
Asda tends to sell Home Inspiration Yankee Candles
The cheapest place to buy Yankee Candles tends to vary between Amazon, ASDA and Very. There is often a Yankee Candle sale in Asda, which has in the past reduced large jars to just £9. This was on Asda George online. Medium jars have been £6 and there's also free click and collect.
Asda now tends to sell the Home Inspiration Yankee Candles. They have an average price of £14 for a large jar, but have been seen for less. Most popular from our bargain hunters are the Yankee Votive gift sets. These are the smaller scented candles, often in a pack of 5, 10 or as an advent calendar. Christmas discounts can often be found, reducing the price from £18 to £12, or even less on other retailers.

We've also found Amazon has the largest collection of fragrances and scents available, second to buying direct from Yankee Candle. So if you're looking for the more obscure Red Apple Wreath, Snowflake Cookie, or Honey Clementine, have a look online here.
Yankee Candle Sale Boots
Boots often has a site-wide Yankee Candle sale
Boots, the high street retailer, is known to have sales often on Yankee Candles. In the run up to Christmas, it often has one-third off, reducing the price of large jars from an "RRP" of £23.99 to £15.99. However, savvy bargain hunters will spot this isn't the best price. It's quite common to find Yankee Candles for £14.99 anyway (large jars) and so discounting from the RRP isn't a good indicator on price.
It's still worth looking at Boots though, as sometimes you can stack deals together. For example, in the past you have been able to get 3 large Yankee Candles for just £23.98. This made them £7.98 each. Boots also sometimes does 3 for 2 in its sale, which is a slightly better offer. Plus, there's been 'Buy 1 Get One Half Price' which works out as 25% off.

The large size is 22oz providing 85hrs of scent while the smaller size is 7oz providing 35 to 45hrs of scent.

- Votive candles. Referred also as sampler candles since you can test new scents even if you’re not going to buy larger candles, these candles don’t come in any container and are ideal for votive holders available to purchase at Yankee Candle.
- Taper candles. These candles which come in various scented and unscented colours are 8-in tall and great for romantic candlelight dinners. You can put it in candle holders that use tapers. On average, it burns an inch every hour.
- Tea light candles. These scented tea light candles are the smallest in the company’s product line. They can be used in any tea light holders and can be bought in boxes of 12 and each offers an average fragrance of 4 to 6hrs.
- Safely burn it. Make sure to always burn your candles using on a surface that’s heat resistant and away from any overhanging fabrics and drafts. Also, ensure that it’s away from your kids and pets’ reach and do not leave it unattended.
- Trim its wick. To avoid the candle “smoking”, make sure to trim its wick to about 3 to 5mm. Put out the candle if it starts to smoke, trim its wick and relight.
- Let the wax pool. To avoid any candle tunneling, let the entire top layer melt and become a pool of liquid wax every time you light a candle. This will also help in releasing a strong scent.
