I bought the M&S advent calendar at the weekend. You need to spend £25 on beauty to be able to purchase it for £25. However, not a lot of people realise that the original £25 spend is before any deductions. I bought 2 items that were originally priced at £12.50 each. I added the advent calendar which came up at £200. I added my sparks card which took off 20%. They then totalled the till and the 2 original items were half price at £6.25 each. I ended up paying just over £32 in total! Bargain.
I bought 2 shower gel sets that were originally £12.50 each but we're half price. All discounts are applied after the till totals the purchase. So as long as the price of the items totals £25 before any reductions then it's fine. They have sold out on line but they had plenty in store.
I did the same. I was worried as it said in the small print of the advent calendar sign something about it cannot be used in conjunction with any other offers but I used 20% off and 3 for 2 on the beauty stuff I got and it all went through. Am quite excited about opening it now! Was actually quite impressed with m and s beauty dept in London colney, loads of nice stuff, especially for gifts.
