We heard a rumour there’d be a Next 50% off sale this weekend and while not official, we’ve done our usual investigating and found plenty of evidence to suggest it’ll start in stores and online this Saturday (23 Mar) - with most stores likely opening early from 7am. We'll update you here and on Twitter @MSE_Deals and Facebook once we know more.
Here's what we know...
(2) When we checked this Saturday’s opening time for the Next store closest to MSE Towers, it had been changed from its usual 9am to 7am (this is very typical of a Next sale launch):
Do check with your local store before turning up at 7am to avoid disappointment (find your nearest).
(3) As one MoneySaver pointed out to us on Twitter thanks, Vicky!), Next is recruiting for temporary sales staff on its website. It specifically mentions a ‘Mid-Season Sale’ and says you'll most likely be needed on Fri 22 Mar and Sat 23 Mar. We wonder why that could be…
(4) It usually happens at roughly the same time each year, so based on past years this is when we'd expect the sale to launch.

If you're buying from Next, you can often cut costs by up to 50% or more in the official Next clearance* online. It's essentially an outlet for past seasons' stock with most items half-price or less, including men's, women's and kid's clothes, accessories and homeware.
Delivery's £3.99 or you can collect from a Next store for free. Next also has 30+ outlet stores located in the UK and overseas, including at Cheshire Oaks, Doncaster, Glasgow, Newport, Sheffield, Stockport, Warrington and Wembley (find your nearest*).
There are always ways to save money at Next*, so even if there isn’t a cracking deal out there that works for you, don’t assume you can’t cut your costs further.
Ways to save include:
- Free Click & Collect. Every online purchase is eligible for free Click & Collect and there's no minimum spend required.
- Look out for hand-written numbers and letters on price tags. Next shop staff are renowned for writing on price tags before sales. If you spot hand-written markings on a full-price item you want to buy, hold off – it probably means the item’s about to be reduced.
- Try haggling. We polled 2,518 MoneySavers to find out in which shops hagglers have most success. High street fashion retailers did feature, so it’s worth a go. Find out more in our Haggle on the High Street guide.
- Check the Clearance page. The Next Clearance* page lists clearance stock from all departments. Stock is limited, so it's worth filtering your searches by product and size.
- Check out similar retailers, eg, Debenhams. If you're not committed to buying from Next, check out our deals from Debenhams, Dorothy Perkins, BHS, John Lewis, House of Fraser, Very and Littlewoods, where there may be a better offer.

- Had a problem with Next? There’s a free online tool you can use to complain – it helps draft, manage and if necessary escalate your complaint. It’s offered by a firm called Resolver, which we like so much we work with it to help people get complaints justice – you can use it to complain to Next*.

Next Black Friday 70% off
Selected items online and in stores
If you go online to Next* or into a store, you can get 70% off selected items in its Black Friday sale across women's, men's and kid's fashion, and home. We've asked Next to confirm when the sale will end and will update you here once we've heard back.
When we checked at 7.52am on Fri 23 Nov, there were just under 2,500 items included in the sale online.
Important: Don't allow yourself to get caught up in the Black Friday hype and only ever buy what you need and can afford. Always do your own price comparisons to ensure you’ve found the best deal - don't just take a retailer's word for it.

Next 50% off sale this weekend
In stores & online from Sat 24 Mar (most stores open 7am)
Rumours about a big Next* mid-season sale have been circulating, but now it's official. The sale starts in stores and online this Saturday (24 Mar), with most stores opening early from 7am.
These are always popular with MoneySavers, as Next sale items are usually at least 50% off rather than the more common 'up to 50%' you tend to see in sales elsewhere.
Do check with your local store before turning up at 7am to avoid disappointment.
What's likely to be included?
Based on what we've seen in previous Next sales, we expect to see womenswear, menswear, kidswear and homeware all included. In the last sale, strong discounts included women's tops for £5 (were £18) and men's shorts for £8 (were £18), so we expect to see similar this time.
In the meantime, something to look out for in stores is handwritten codes on clothing tags indicating reduced prices of items set to be included in the sale. Keep an eye out and see our Shopping Secrets guide for what exactly they mean, and what else to look out for.
