You can get early access to Next’s boxing day sales – but there's a catch

NEXT is already gearing up for its Boxing Day sales and bargain hunters can get early access.

Shoppers who sign up to the fashion retailer's Nextpay credit account can book their own VIP slot to surf the retailer's sales online before anyone else.

The Next Boxing Day sales often attract early morning queues as shoppers look to pickup post Christmas bargains.

The brand held Boxing Day sales in 2020 despite lockdown restrictions in many parts of the country.

Discounts of as much as 70% were still offered in stores that could open and online.

Next didn't offer any Black Friday deals this year but it looks like it is preparing for its usual Boxing Day sales event.

It is holding a VIP sale before the actual Boxing Day sales though.

Adverts on the Next website for its VIP sale suggest that items will be reduced by up to 50%.

The VIP sale isn't open to everyone.

Shoppers need to sign up and be approved for a Nextpay credit account so you can then book a slot to access the sale early online as a VIP.

How to book a Next VIP sale slot

The Next VIP sale is only available to its Nextpay customers.

To qualify for the VIP sale, shoppers need to create a Nextpay account by 1159pm on Wednesday December 15.

You need to opt-in to receive marketing emails and an early access invite should be sent to you by Sunday December 19.

All slots are allocated on a first come, first served basis and there are usually limited numbers.

They are usually capped at around 45 minutes so make sure you choose a time that you are free.

What is a Nextpay account?

A Nextpay account is an online credit card.

You will need to apply through the Next website and will be given a balance based on your credit rating.

The account can be used for online purchases and some shoppers may be eligible for a physical card once they make their first bill payment.

You will be sent a bill for your purchases each month but there may be more to pay if the value is beyond your credit limit.

Think carefully before taking out any store card though.

The interest rates can be very high if you don't pay it off each month.

Otherwise the amount you pay in interest will wipe out the savings you make in the sale.

The interest rate or annual percentage rate for the Nextpay account is 23.9%.
