The golden rule here is do NOT wait for Next to email or text you with an invite. By that time all the savvy shoppers will have their slot already booked.

Use our sales calendar above and around 9am, 3-4 days before the sale starts, Next will release their VIP slots. You can check by clicking here* and logging in. Pick the earliest slot available and you'll get an email confirming that straight away.

Half Price Next Unlimited

Next Unlimited* is the delivery plan from Next. It allows you 12 months of unlimited free delivery. If your order is in stock and you place it before 10pm, it's usually a next day service.

Normally, it's £20 for the 12 months, but Next account holders can buy one now to cover the rest of 2021 for just £10. Initially, your account will be charged the £20, but you'll receive a £10 credit back on your account.

With Next Unlimited you're saving on that £3.99 delivery fee per order, and they even include free furniture deliveries which is usually £8 a time.

Prefer to use ParcelShops? Not a worry, these too are covered by Next Unlimited.

No minimum spend applies ever which makes it ideal for shopping their Clearance section or their sales.

Oh and another bonus is that returns are free too!

Next VIP Sale

How do I get a VIP Slot for the Next Sale? Here's how to give yourself the best possible chance.

  1. You must have a Next Account*
  2. Make sure your Next Credit Account has at least £250 credit available at the time of VIP selection (around a week before the sale is due to start.)
  3. Place and keep an order from the current season. Returns do not count.
  4. Have returned less than two thirds of the items you've ordered that season.
  5. Your email address must be up to date and set to receive sale and promotional emails. If it's not amend and update it by logging into your account.

Now getting a slot is ok, but ideally you want the first slot available and that's where it really pays to be in the know. If you've ever spotted the diffusers, designer trainers and perfume sets on the sale preview and not managed to bag them when your time comes, that's because they've went on the first slot.

Next Sale

If you've ever wondered when the Next sale starts in 2021, you've come to the right place.

This Next Sales Calendar has all the 2021 dates, information, tips and tricks you'll ever need. Ever wondered how to grab a VIP slot for the Next Sale? Read on!

Tip : The Next Clearance updates around 4.30am each morning, (except on a Sunday) so set your alarm. When it updates the best bargains sell out fast. Remember you can refine your search so that you see the lowest prices first.

As regular Next shoppers know, they do not like issuing general voucher codes but that doesn't mean you still can't bag a bargain, even on New Season items, you just have to know how.

Next love their account holders. If you have an account, make sure your email address is up to date and that you've opted in to receive promotional emails. You can check your settings on your account here*

Typical offers include 25% off New Season Collections and invites to special events local to you, which include the chance to buy goods at discounted prices with bubbly and nibbles thrown in. Shopping and champers is my kind of night!

Top Tips for the Next VIP Sale

Got your VIP slot and ready to shop? These top tips will make sure you bag those bargains. Even in the first VIP slot the best bargains go like lightning. Here's how to make sure you don't miss out.

1. Your VIP slot will have a "Next Sale Preview" link. USE THIS. Go through it thoroughly, marking everything you want and making a note of the Quickshop* account number. This is crucial, as this is how you will shop the second the countdown ends and your VIP slot begins.

You can always go back and browse later, your slot will be open for a few days, but those branded items sell out super fast. Follow this tip, use the Quickshop on your VIP slot and you won't miss out.

2. If you are browsing the sale and do not add any items to your bag within 20 minutes, you will lose your slot. You do not want this to happen after all your hard work getting there, so add something to your bag as soon as you log in!

3. Not sure if something you have your eye on will be included in the sale? Have a sneaky peek at the label in store a few days beforehand. Staff have told us that items going into the sale will be marked with "special codes" such as B14, G4 and P7. Ignore the letter, the number is the sale price.

4. Check out Next Unlimited*. This is a cracking service if you're a regular Next shopper. For £20 a year you get unlimited next day deliveries and you can even choose a specific time slot. Yes, store collection is free but with each home delivery costing £3.99, Unlimited doesn't take long to pay for itself. You can add this to your account too if you have one.

Next Home And Furniture Sale

Lots of people ask if it's just clothing that's included in the Next Sales and the simple answer to that is "no". Clothing, especially branded clothing like Nike Air Max*and Monsoon*, is popular and included but most departments will have at least 50% off some items and that includes Home and Furniture*. These items obviously have more money off than clothing so it's important you follow the tips above and don't miss out.

The Next Sale is one of few remaining sales that people will still queue for hours for but follow our guide and you can shop from the comfort of your sofa and grab what you want without setting your alarm for 4am!

                                      I don't know why people get so excited. Its always rubbis the shop is like a jumble sale with crazy woman knocking lumps out of each other fighting over last season stock. Id rather pay full price and be more civilized.
