Next Christmas VIP Sale slots

Can anyone (Next employee perhaps?) confirm when the VIP slots for this year's Next Christmas Sale will be available for selection within my Next account? i.e. not when the emails are sent out but when the slots first go live in 'my account'?

Thanks in advance.

Lulz....how do you know. Do you gen an email or do you go to a specific section once u log in?

Last year it was 19th December (I've still got the email!!) x

i'm hoping for one of these too and would love to know when they come through what times people get to see whether it is even worth my while trying to shop it! got the 2nd time slot in the summer and there was nothing left!

In store is the 26th, My local is 6am start this year rather than 5am, worth checking your local one for Boxing Day opening.

Have you already been offered a slot???

i just got 1, log into your next account ;-)

I have and there is no invite & when I got on next.co.uk/vip…ale it says 'Sorry this area is only available to selected customers'................. if this means I am not on the list I will be gutted!!! this time I REALLY needed a slot and have my money saved up and everything!!! I have had vip slots for as long as I can remember and order LOADS! I am still hoping that they are trawling through and that if I keep trying I will get one later....

I have just called next general enquiries line now as I havent had an email or nothing when I keep logging in my account and he said I would be getting an email, so keep checking

Are you getting the same message as me if you go on the link I have posted? x

yes keep checking ive only just recieved my email slot, fingers crossed for you

Im feeling very unloved

Yeah same thing and I have had slots as far as I remember.... fingers crossed!

I have just phoned and been told the same so I will keep checking x

So glad I sat down for 5 minutes today and saw this thread. Reminded me to check account and managed to book at 6pm Thursday slot

I haven't received my email yet and phd customer services who said I will be getting one but is there a way of booking a slot without waiting for the email? Many thanks

I didn't wait for an Email, Just logged into account and on the left where payments and log out are should be VIP sale. If its there click and book a slot.

I still dont have the option on the left so I guess we just have to wait but doesnt look like we will get on the first slot

Thanks for the reply, I have just tried logging on to my account but no sign of a VIP Sale even though customer services said I am getting one, have been shopping in the VIP sale for years and normally I can book a slot on the website no prob but can't seem to do it this time.

Me too Roman and I have another friend getting the same as us too - must be doing it differently this time! I am SO impatient!!

So am I! Will have to go out on the school run soon too so hope I can book a slot before then! Its so frustrating they are only letting customers book slots in batches this year they don't normally.

I still don't have an email but have just logged on to my Next account and it has prompted me to book a slot. Try that x

Nothing yet

sign into your next account , vip listings are available there, didn't have a email , i just logged on

Nothing for me either and no prompt on my account. I spoke to customer services (again!) and they said the emails are going out in batches over a couple of days!!!! At this rate stand no chance of a slot which I am really disappointed about as I save up for months to spend in the next sale for kids clothes. I think the way Next have done it this year is really unfair. I have wasted so much time today checking my account and normally its a 5 second job to book a slot.

I have spent all day too checking.. I usually have no problem and always spend alot with next. Wont be anything left by the time we get our slot...!

Still nothing here either Keep logging into my account and no prompt like there has been in the past! Pain in the **** is all I can say!!!

I think its a case of you win some, you lose some. a couple of VIP slots ago I got the first, Lst sale I got one of the last and everything had gone, This time I have been given a 1st one again. Glad as it saves me going to store as I have a long journey to do on Boxing day.

I think thats right Beth but I do think that everyone who qualifies for a VIP slot should be given the same chance of booking a slot. Its unfair to stagger the emails over a few days as Next know there won't be anything left after the slots have gone for the 22nd.

Yes that would be the most fair option. Then its a case of first come first served rather than making people wait to book. Its really frustrating watching others book, knowing you will be invited but once all the good stuff has gone.

brb getting up at stupid o'clock on boxing day for overpriced tat that couldn't be sold during the year...

COUNT ME IN.
