Anyone been able to get this to work? I have enough points (have accessed earlier sales), but not showing in my sparks priority access, nor is the link working...

Can't find the priority access tab!

If on Desktop, select Sparks (top right), then "Go to Sparks", then it's just below where it tells you your points, gives a few other menu options too..

what do you get with the sparks points

Can't get it to work

Snap up Sale pieces before everyone else once you collect 5000 sparks.

Probably more overpriced dull stuff they cant offload. M&S sales are getting as frequent as those sofa shops and oak furniture land.

so we collect points to look at stuff before others....it's not like tesco points then

Go to M & S website.. type priority access in tool bar and your'e straight in.

Looks that way - except that the stuff's all full price.

Good luck - website keeps crashing! Should be accessed via email sent to those eligible.

Can anybody comment on how kids sale section is?

Today is early access for everyone with 20,000+ Sparks. Everyone else who has 'unlocked' priority access will be able to shop it tomorrow.

​Tried that. Prices remained unaltered.

Wow. So I collect enough points for priority access and now they want me to collect even more points for priority priority access! You couldn't make it up....

This offer is working with other multi-buy offers e.g. sale mens luxury shirts £45 each or buy 2 with the sale preview discount and normal multi buy discount and they work out at £15 each. Also the picnic ware offer on the home section gives 50% off and extra discounts when you buy any 3.

Does anyone know ho to what % the bedroom furniture discount goes to it always seems to be on sale, currently 20% off but was previously 30% off, does it often go higher?

Is it 50% off the sale price?

I got my priority access today. Ordered quite a few bits for me and family, 50% off applied in basket. On desktop you have the banner.

W*NK!!!!

I had to collect points to get priority access and now I have to quadruple again to get priority access just to look at stuff first - M&S you are going to lose me as a customer.

agreed MnS ripping off customers with the early sparks access as 20,000 points is crazy

​I have 4984 points and I just bought £32 worth of goods around 5pm today..my sparks points still haven't been added on so no priority access for me...besides this Sparks card really doesn't benefit me much...I never have any offers for goods I actually buy from Marks..

hahaha boo hoo. you think you mean anything? enjoy primark

The average M&S customer might be very surprised to find that instead of their Sparks points they can buy what are very similar products, made to a similar quality in many cases, for not much more than a third of the M&S price. M&S rely on the fact that most of their regular customers won't set foot in Primark.

Tesco, Sainsbury et al used to take a similar view of Aldi and Lidl.............

Had a look and there is nothing I want. I was holding out on the 20% off for a new duvet cover set, it is not in the sale so I'll have to hold on a bit longer.

Errrrr, that's not true. You enjoy your Polyester mix work shirt from Primark and I'l enjoy the cool cotton shirt from M&S. Yes it might cost 4 times the cost, but it'll last 4 times as long and when you're wearing something for 10-12 hrs a day, sometimes that bit of quality is well worth it,

Perhaps they are referring to this?

Benefits may change, depending on the number of sparks accrued through … Benefits may change, depending on the number of sparks accrued through the membership year. Sparks reset to 0 on the anniversary of your registration each year, and you will start each new membership year with the same benefits as in the previous year. Details of levels and the benefits available to you can be viewed online at marksandspencer.com within your account or, if you have not provided us with a valid email address, in a quarterly statement. You will only receive a quarterly statement whereby we need to notify you of any changes to your account or terms and conditions. If your account has been inactive for 12 months you will be exempt from this statement.

oO
But does that mean although you will have 0 Sparks you will still have the benefits of the level of Priority Access etc that you had before the reset?

This is phase 2 summer sale - its mostly the high summer lines that don't get reduced at the start of the summer. There won't be anywhere near as many sales as previous years since Steve Rowe took over as CEO a few months back.

Your points reset but you still get the benefits from the points collected in the year for another year. So you then have another year to collect more points to maintain the same benefits for the following year. E.G. if you have enough points for priority access on your anniversary date your points are reset to zero but you keep priority access for another year.

Another M&S customer too blinkered to actually look elsewhere - if you'd ever looked inside Primark you'd have seen that there's plenty of 100% cotton to be had. You'd also have spotted that M&S 'quality' these days isn't a patch on what it used to be, and is only marginally better than Primark. Sometimes no better at all.

And as for those shirts, you'll find much better quality shirts from firms like Brook Taverner (far better made, with better cloth) at lower prices.

M&S is living on its past reputation, with high prices and indifferent quality, which is why its clothing sales continue to fall. It needs people like you.
