TIP: Pimp the sales offers with a voucher code. Using a NextPAy account gives you £10 off a £15 spend which is great, but please note this is a “credit” account which will perform a credit check and should not be opened on a whim. If using, pay off straight away and cancel. The bonus is the £10 discount also works on new Next stock:

Savvy Tips for the Next VIP customer, including QuickShop.
Even with the prime VIP slot sorted, you’re still going to need to move like shit off a shovel. Use these tips below to bag those items you’ve eyed up.
- USE THE SALE PREVIEW: This is a link that will be sent to you. This can be used to trawl the items that will be live and make a note of the simple “QuickShop” account number. You’ll need these for when the VIP slots go live and it speeds everything up. Click on this link to find out more about Quickshop.
- HUNT FOR THE MARKER: You can check in stores the sort of items going in the sale as “often” they are marked up with a crude code of a letter followed by numbers. According to some staff, the number is the reduced price.
- KEEP BROWSING: You can use the preview link more than once, keep checking back in case you missed something.
- THE 15 MINUTE RULE: Failing to add items to your basket within around 20 minutes means you lose your hard-earned slot. Try applying a 15-minute rule to be safe and add something cheap as soon as you log in.
