I think sale is 18.7, wondered if they'd started on the slots yet and if so whether id therefore missed out! anyone had any mails?

The slots will probably go out about Sunday for Monday/Tuesday onwards I would think.

I will be checking my emails smile

Reckon it's worth buying more said now to increase my chances of getting a golden ticket wink

I have had a vip when I have bought nothing and not when I have bought stuff. I would say it has been 50/50 each time whether I get one and doesn't seem dependant on what I buy. I have got quite a bit of stuff after the sale though, when returns come back, especially if I go on there early in the morning.

I haven't had one yet; fingers crossed!

I think it's usually a week before, so hopefully this weekend!

Bought very little from Next recently, so not expecting to be amongst the favoured few.

I've had my VIP invite email this morning, booked the first available slot which was Weds at 17:00.

MaryBerrysEyelashes Mon 13-Jul-15 11:59:14

me - earliest is 2.30 am on Wed

I dont understand it

MaryBerrysEyelashes Mon 13-Jul-15 11:59:49

oh no 18h on Wed
can you log on Afterward?

TheBreeze Mon 13-Jul-15 12:16:54

Got mine emailed at 10.35 this morning and booked a slot Wed 17.00 at about 11 o'clock this morning

Is this the first slot, I hope so smile Actually i couldn't have done one any earlier because of getting home from work.

You can log on anytime after your slot starts but once logged on then have to put something in basket within 20 mins.

Mine's at 19.30 on Wednesday. No doubt there'll be nothing left by then. I wish they'd make searching for what you need a bit easier - I want girls' clothes for my 4yo and 9yo, yet there's size 4, 3-4, 4, age 4, 3-4 years, etc with different things in each one. Just put everything in the same place!

MaryBerrysEyelashes Mon 13-Jul-15 13:26:49

i only get branded sportswear tbh

Talisin Mon 13-Jul-15 13:29:04

18:00 was the first slot on offer for me. I suspect the two things I really want will be gone by then though. Oh well.

Wenchelda Mon 13-Jul-15 13:31:14

I've got one for the first time ever. Very surprised to even have one as I hardly buy anything from there tbh. So now I've got my slot booked, what do I need to know? I've got a 3yo DD and 5yo DS who always need clothes and could do with some decent tops for myself I guess. No idea what other bargains to look out for!

poppym12 Mon 13-Jul-15 13:35:37

Yes, email came this morning. couple of things I'd like but I daresay they won't be available on Wednesday and I'll end up buying lots of stuff I don't want anyway.

dexter73 Mon 13-Jul-15 14:57:17

Wenchelda - have a look through the sales listing beforehand to see if you like anything.

Shapebandit Mon 13-Jul-15 14:59:39

I've got wed at 7.30pm. I always get a vip slot without fail but rarely buy much in the sales tbh

MaryBerrysEyelashes Mon 13-Jul-15 16:10:21

i got a real life invitation

MaryBerrysEyelashes Mon 13-Jul-15 16:10:56

i cant see HOW the 6pm Wednesday slot will be no good - the only one earlier is 5pm!

LemonYellowSun Mon 13-Jul-15 16:12:44

I have 7pm Weds. Nothing is ever left at that point so I dont know why I am bothering

Nanasueathome Mon 13-Jul-15 16:18:17

I gave up even bothering to book a VIP slot as I have never bought anything
Everything I have looked at beforehand and lined up had always sold out by the time I had my slot
You do tend to do better in-store as a lot of the stuff is sent to the stores and they always seem to have more choices and availability

Dawndonnaagain Mon 13-Jul-15 18:23:57

I managed a 6pm on Wednesday evening. I usually do quite a bit of Christmas shopping!

TheBreeze Mon 13-Jul-15 19:27:03

I also get a few Xmas presents, stocking fillers like socks for DS and stuff like that. I also can only get the tall stuff and XL length online from Next so hope to get a few things as they won't be instore anyway. I have my eye on a jacket and a couple of tops and I generally try to get some work trousers. I also want to buy a bedstead, as one of the ones I had my eye on is in the sale but need to check about delivery of sale furniture in case they don't deliver, also need some new bedding to go with it smile.
