I worked at Yankee Candle – super fans need to know our ‘jar for jar’ policy

MAKE your home smell amazing for less with the help of one employee secret.

Ashley Lester is a former Yankee Candle employee, and she posted a video revealing one secret that can get you a brand new candle for free.

Lester explained that Yankee Candle has a "jar for jar" policy.

"That basically means that you can take in your candle and exchange it out for another one," she said.

The former employee said that it doesn't matter how much of the candle you've already burned.

Customers can bring back a full candle that was hardly ever lit or even one that was burned down to the bottom of the jar.


I worked at Starbucks – the cheap fast-food coffees which taste just as good

I worked at Applebee’s – there are only 6 items on the menu that aren’t microwaved

Showing off a candle that was almost all the way burned, she said: "I could take this in and say 'I didn't like the smell.'"

"They would give you an entirely brand new candle for free," she said.

Lester said the best part is that you don't even need a receipt to exchange the candle.

As for candles with custom photos on them, Lester said they will even take those back as well.
