10 Simple Ways to Save at Marks and Spencer

Marks and Spencer is a British-based retailer and is your one-stop shop for clothing for the entire family as well as top-quality items for the home. They always have the latest trends at affordable prices so you can jump on board with your favorite styles for the entire family.

Before you shop at Marks and Spencer, you should know there are even more ways to save. We divulge the best ways to save there below.

1. Sign up for Emails and Save 10%

Sign up for the Marks and Spencer email list (scroll down to the footer form) and you’ll receive 10% off your next order. As an email subscriber, you’ll receive exclusive offers and deals to help you save even more money including exclusive sales for email subscribers.

Keep in mind, that you can’t combine coupons with any existing promotions at Marks and Spencer. Use your coupon on items that aren’t in a promo to give you a little extra money off something you want but isn’t quite on sale yet.

2. Shop the Offers Tab

When you visit Marks and Spencer Online, head straight to their Offers tab where you’ll find their best and latest deals. Most of their deals are for multiples, such as Buy 3 for 2, or buy 3 get 30% off. The offers change often, so always check the tab before shopping to see how much you can save.

These are the offers that you can’t combine with a coupon, but they save you a significant amount of money, especially if you’re buying in multiples.

3. Join the Refer-a-Friend Program

Join Marks and Spencer’s Refer-a-Friend program and give your friends the gift of 15% off their order. As a thank you, Marks and Spencer will send you 10% off your next order when your friend makes a purchase.

You can refer to as many friends and family as you want. Share your favorite items from Marks and Spencer on your stories or social media pages and talk about them in person with everyone you know. Before you know it, you’ll be sharing your code with many friends and family and can reap the savings yourself.

4. Look for Promo Codes

Even if you don’t have a promo code from their emails, you can often find promo codes on third-party coupon websites. Make sure the site you’re using is legitimate and enter the code offered at checkout. If it works, you’ll see the discount in your cart, saving you money just for a few seconds of work.

Again, you can’t use promo codes on current promos Marks and Spencer runs. Check the site first for what you plan to buy and if it’s in their ‘offers’, you don’t need a coupon, but if it’s not, find a coupon to save you even more money.

5. Get Free Delivery when you Spend $120

Marks and Spencer offer free shipping on orders over $120. Try saving your purchases to do all at once so you can save money on shipping charges. No one likes paying to ship so this is a great way to save on your purchases.

They only offer express shipping so you’ll always pay $13 for shipping unless you spend at least $120.

6. Save Big around the Holidays

Marks and Spencer technically don’t participate in Black Friday sales, but you can usually find great deals for your holiday shopping needs. Check back often during the holidays and check out their latest deals including promotions and marked-down prices.

You can also shop around other major holidays to score some great deals. Christmastime usually has the best deals, but even summertime (holiday for London) brings out some of the best deals.

7. Pay with a Cash Back Credit Card

If you have rewards credit cards or have good enough credit to secure one, find one that pays a high percentage back at department stores like Marks and Spencer. If you have a rewards credit card with revolving categories, wait until you get the highest percentage for your purchase type and earn rewards just for shopping.

Always read the fine print on your credit card agreements. Some cards pay higher percentages for certain types of stores, like department stores, and others pay for specific types of purchases, such as clothing or home goods.

8. Visit the Marks and Spencer Sale Page

Occasionally Marks and Spencer run a sitewide sale versus just the offers on their Offer page. Check back often to see when the sale is running again to get some of your favorite clothes and the hottest trends on sale. 

9. Return Unwanted Products within 35 Days

Marks and Spencer offers a generous return policy, allowing you to return items for up to 35 days. It will cost you $10 to return it to Marks and Spencer, but if it’s an item you don’t want, $10 is better than eating the price of the product you aren’t going to wear or use.

10. Shop the Inspire Me Section

Marks and Spencer has a section titled ‘Inspire Me’ where they showcase the latest trends as well as outfits and clothing that will stand the test of time. If you’re trying to figure out how a new trend works or you want a suit that will last for many years to come, visit this page first.

You’ll get advice and see the latest outfits put together to help you make the most of your choices. You’ll be happier with your purchases and less likely to have to spend money on returns or leave clothes in your closet unworn.
