We are pretty sure that the Next 'Mid-Season' sale is going to happen next week. Next is trying to keep a lid on the actual details of the sale, but we've done some digging and one lucky phone call has revealed it could be this weekend (Sat 25 Sep and Sun 26 Sep) online and in-store. We believe that the sale could see 50-80% discounts on items ranging from footwear, handbags, furniture and more. Here's what we've found...
1. Customer Services thinks it might happen
MSE Anjali put in a cheeky call to customer services, who let it slip that they think the sale will be this weekend (25-26 Sep).
2. Next is recruiting for sales staff
Next is recruiting for temporary helpers for its 'Mid-Season' sale on its careers website. It says that staff will most likely be needed for Fri 24 Sep and Sat 25 Sep, which can only mean one thing...
3. It happened this time last year
In 2020, the sale started on 17 Sep to 23 Sep and it happened at a similar time in both 2018 and 2019.
You can check with your local store before turning up early to avoid disappointment (find your nearest).
4. VIP booking slots have been released
MSE Tony's wife has already received her email to book her VIP pre-sale slot for this week.
Here is a list of tips to keep in mind during the sale:
1. If buying online, Next turns off its Save Bag and Save for Later features, so make sure if you really want something you buy it straightaway otherwise the item you want might sell out without you realising.
2. Because of the big discounts in Next sales, there is a strong likelihood things will sell out fast so make sure you plan what you would like to buy in advance and then during the sale you can check if that item is discounted. Bookmark the tabs that contain the items you are hoping to buy if buying online.
3. Don't buy just because it's cheap, only buy if you really need it.

If you go online to VoucherCodes you can get a code for 30% off most items online at Adidas, until 11.59pm on Thu 30 Sep. What's more, the code also works on the already-reduced Adidas outlet*. The code won't work on some items – they'll be marked as 'excluded from all promotional discounts and offers'.
Delivery's £3.99 or free if you're spending over £25. However, if you join Adidas' free loyalty scheme 'Creators Club', there's no minimum threshold so you won't pay for delivery regardless of how much you spend. See what else Creators Club gets you.
