Next Sale Calendar 2024 & How To Book A VIP Slot

Next Spring Sale 2024

edit: The VIP slots are now live with the first slot being Wednesday 13th March at 2pm, click here to book yours

Next have confirmed that all VIP invites will be sent by Tuesday 12th March 2024. Next have started releasing the VIP slots in batches and your invite could arrive at any time but with previous sale invites having been sent at the weekend, I'd keep an eagle eye on my account this Saturday (March 9th)

How To Get The First VIP Slot In The Next Sale

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.

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. It costs £22.50 for 12 months.

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.

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 2024, you've come to the right place.

This Next Sales Calendar has all the 2024 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 £22.50 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 Maxand 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!

          • amywirakhil

            Anyone have any idea when the slots become available? Had hoped it would be today but says sale closed when I go to the next page 

            • DanielleM

              I’ve got a feeling it will be today based on last years dates. 

            • Pkellyp

                Really felt the need to share what a disappointment the Next VIP sale was on 3rd July 2019. Have had first slots for years (a dedicated Next fan) and always have my list ready to start typing in the minute it starts. Well, the majority of my list had sold out before the sale had even started. This was within seconds. I have wriiten to Next as I know that staff have earlier access therefore most stock had sold out before the public even have a chance. My moan is that I agree staff should have a perk but maybe Next ought to release the viewing sale list AFTER staff have had their pick. The sale list is misleading as believe me many of the items including girls sportwear,trainers etc were never availalable at the start of the sale in the first place.

                Very disappointed.
