Have managed to get a VIP slot for friday but noticed that a lot of the stuff I'd recently bought for DS's hols in Oct have been reduced. What are the chances that I can get away with buying them again in the sale and returning the full price stuff? I know they usually accept returns within 7ish days, but I've def returned something that was over that time.

If you have a vip slot for Friday then most of the stuff will be gone by then as the first vip slots start tonight and everything sells out very quickly. I would keep hold of the stuff you have bought in case you can't get it in the sale.

oh. and here was me thinking I was special getting a slot at all! will see what dregs are left on friday.

If you return it once it's gone on sale, I'm sure they only refund you the sale price.

Might sound silly but whats a vip slot and how can you get one??

Vix - To be selected for an invitation you must have a Next flexible credit account with at least £250 credit available, have ordered from the Next Directory this year, your email address details are up to date and you are registered to... receive sale and promotional emails. (You can amend or update your e-mail address when you sign into your account online.) You must agree to have a copy of the Next Directory and you have returned less than two thirds of the items you’ve bought in this year. However, meeting the above criteria doesn't guarantee a slot will be offered.
C&P from their site.

i got a text alert on monday lunchtime to book a slot - maybe thts the way forward?

If there was anything you really wanted then it seems yesterday was the time to shop. But my invite only came yesterday so today was the first timeslot I could get. Really annoyed that my rug has gone sad

You need to book your slot as soon as you get your invite. They go quick. My invite came too late sad

I had a slot for this morning and there was nothing left that I wanted.
