Once Christmas is over *sob* there’s only one thing to look forward to – Boxing Day sales!

Renowned for its incredible discounts, high street favourite Next isn’t one to shy away when it comes to slashing prices across hundreds of clothing pieces and home goods. So, to save you the stress before splashing the cash when it comes to finding the best bargains – trust us, it can be overwhelming even for the most seasoned shoppers – here are five tips to navigate the Next sale like a pro.

Happy shopping!

Get ahead with some research  

Boxing Day sales usually begin early, so before running straight to your local Next store, start off by browsing a few days ahead to see what items are available before the items go into the sale. Planning to shop online? Sometimes due to the surge of traffic the website can crash so it’s best to add anything that catches your eye straight to cart prior to the sale day. That way, when the discounts go live all you need to do is hit the checkout button.

Set up a budget

The holiday season can take a toll on our bank accounts, and it can feel like forever until January’s paycheck comes in – right? – So, setting a budget that you’re comfortable with, and sticking to it, will keep you from overspending.

Make a wish list 

A surefire way to make sure that you don’t go off-piste and defeat the purpose of point number 2 (please see above), is to list out all the desired products that you want need in order from must-haves to nice-to-haves. It decreases the chances of impulse buying and could potentially save you a few £££.

Look out for these things in-store

When shopping at your local Next store, keep your eyes peeled for anything labelled with odd tags or markers on clothing pieces and home items, this is rumoured to be an indication that said items will be victims of a price reduction.

Don’t forget to take note of the return policy

If by chance you end up regretting buying something, it’s always good practice to be familiar with the return policies. Some branches (and certain items in the sale bought either online or instore) may have a strict ‘no-return’ return policy. Check out Next’s returns page here.
