I thought it opened at 5am!

Lol, I am. I had a VIP invite but didn't register as there wasn't much in the last catalogue that grabbed me. Now I am in a 10 min queue...

It started at 8, only took me 5 mins to get in, but it's sllooooooooooooooow and everything is gone sad

The only thing I wanted was a bedstead but it isn't available anymore angry.

I had a VIP slot but forgot to use it

Load of crap anyway - don't bother waiting!

I got a VIP slot but didnt bother registering to use it as there is never anything left in the sale anyway that I want.

I find with Next if you dont order fairly soon after the catalogue comes out lots quickly goes out of stock. I now just do 2 orders a year for DS unless he needs extra in between.

I had a VIP slot but nothing I wanted was left anyway. Waste of time.

I went to NEXT at 5am this morning.

spent £90 and bought a pair of jeans for DH, 3 shirts and 3 ties for DH, a fire engine clock for £3 for the boys, a pair of navy linen trousers for me and 3 tops for me.

My friend spent £250!!! shock

I had a vip shop but loads of what I wanted had gone so went this morning and managed to getthe curtains and bedding for ds's room really happy with them

IllegallyBrunette Sat 19-Jul-08 15:20:45

I went this morning too, not at 5am though I have to say.

I got a top for dd1, 2 tops and a pair of shorts for Ds, 3 tops, 4 pairs of shorts for Dd2, and a pair of shorts and a lovely pair of brown wedges for me. Oh and I got Ds a Dr Who hooded top to put up for his birthday in December.

Tbh I needed more stuff for Dd1, but there wasn't that much for her age.

I arrived at 7.45am and it was really quiet. No queue at all for the till when i finally got there at nearly 9am after a very peisurely potter.

Spent £107 but some of that will go back.

Aarrgghh Sat 19-Jul-08 16:55:21

I was there for 6 and hardly anything left. The people already in there had about 10 bags each - i was very envy

Spent £70 and think we got the same clock collision and i also got the fleece as DS has a fire engine bed!

Polgara2 Sat 19-Jul-08 17:16:18

Well I sauntered in at 10.00 ish and still managed to spend £70! Got shoes for dd2, boots for me, 2 largish pictures for bedroom wall, lots of jewellery and 2 presents for friends to put away so am quite pleased actually. There did seem to be lots of clothes still there wasn't actually rummaging so don't know if they were rubbish or not.

Has anyone else not been able to get on the website all day? I can get to the opening page but then when I try to click through to the department it won't load. I went to the store and bought a few things this morning but wanted to see what's left online...

pinkcandyfloss Mon 21-Jul-08 18:07:36

It said the online sale started at 8am but I went on there at 7.15am (thanks to the kids waking up) to have a look what there was and at 7.20am it let me order. Managed to get some bits. By 8am there was hardly anything left. Bad that they started it early really when they advertised 8am.
