Tips to Save Even More in the M&S Sales
As with any sales, the way to save the most money is to not buy things you don’t need.
So assuming there are things you want to go ahead and buy here are some extra tips to make sure you are getting the lowest prices for your shopping.
If you are shopping online you can earn free cashback simply by visiting marksandspencer.com via Topcashback first. This way you will earn cashback simply by proceeding to go about your purchase as normal.
Cashback offers change all the time, but as an example of what was on offer in November 2021:

- Existing Customer – Clothing & Home £100+ 5% cashback
- New Customer – Clothing & Home below £100 – 3% cashback

Often they will have more cashback deals covering different departments.
Topcashback is free to join and easy to use, I’ve had £100’s in cashback over the years simply using it as a habit.
You can find out more in my Topcashback review.
Zilch – Pay it all now get 2-5%
Another option that is currently paying very well is Zilch a buy now pay later option which has the option to pay off off the whole balance at the time of purchase with funds from your bank account, but in doing so earns you 2-5% cashback in rewards.
At the time of writing the rate is 5% and this applies to stores where cashback is rarely an option including:
Plus its a rare where to earn Amazon cashback.
Whenever you shop at M&S make sure to use your Sparks card if you have one even though they no longer reward with sparks points, there’s always the chance you win their weekly prize of someone getting their shopping for free.
If you haven’t signed up check to see if there’s a good sign up a deal on offer
M&S Credit Card
The M&S credit card will reward you with reward points on your shopping, although there may be better options for around spending (like using Zilch above for 2 to 5% rewards).
There’s usually also a signup incentive, for example at the time of writing they were offering £40 in M&S vouchers.
Remember it’s best to pay off the balance every month so you never incur the interest charges.
If you are a regular shopper in the Marks and Spencer sales make sure you have the sales dates saved in your calendar.
