When is the Next sale? Expected date and how to get a VIP slot for early access | The Sun

SUMMER bargain hunters eager are for the Next sale and the good news is, it's nearly here.

Fashion retailer Next is set to launch online and in stores very soon and shoppers can pick up clothing, homeware and more with prices slashed at least 50%.

On the day of the Next sales, eager shoppers head down to their nearest store in the early hours of the morning before they open at the earlier time of 6am.

Next holds a main sale once every season, with the biggest one arguably being the Boxing Day sale.

But the summer sale also draws in crowds of shoppers, and with prices slashed by up to 50%, it's no surprise.

When is the Next sale?

Although the exact date of the Next sale is yet to be confirmed, it is expected to take place on Saturday, July 9.

A shopper in the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook group has predicted the sale will begin this weekend.

The shopper correctly predicted the start date of last year's sale.

The event is usually held online and in store – so you can browse which ever way you prefer.

You can find your nearest branch by using the Next store locator.

Your local store may have different opening hours to others, so it's best to check with your local branch before going.

The Sun has asked Next what time shoppers can access the sales online on Saturday.

But some loyal customers will be able to access the bargains online sooner than this.

Those classed as VIPs are likely to get an invitation in their inboxes to shop the sales earlier than the rest.

These people will be able to browse the sale earlier than other shoppers.

In previous Next sales, they have also been given a 45 minute time slot allowing them to bag the discounts before anyone else.

How can I get a Next VIP slot?

To receive a VIP sale invite, you will need to have successfully opened a NextPay credit account ahead of any event.

Be careful when taking out a store card though.

Interest rates can be very high, so you need to make sure you can pay them off in full each month.

Otherwise, the amount paid in interest will counteract the savings you make in the sale.

Other requirements to become a Next VIP include:

  • Having a Next flexible credit account with at least £250 credit available
  • Placing and keeping an order from the Next Directory within the last year
  • Having an up to date email address registered with Next, and being registered to receive sale and promotional emails
  • Receiving a copy of the Next Directory
  • Returning less than two thirds of the items ordered

All VIP sale slots are granted on a first come, first served basis, and they're restricted to one per customer.

User have the best chance at getting amazing deals by accepting the first slot they're allocated, because things can sell out quickly.

How can I bag the best bargains?

A Next employee previously shared top tips with The Sun about how to grab the best offers in stores and online.

Before the sale, familiarise yourself with the sale stock on offer ahead of time when Next reveals more information about the sale.

Check in store and online to see what items you might fancy, that means you'll be able to act fast once prices start dropping.

You should also check online before heading to store – this is because the sale launches online before it hits the shops.

Choose the right store for you – smaller stores could be less busy while crowds of shoppers mostly head to the big branches, so you'll have less competition.
