M&S to offer 5,000 customers free shopping this Saturday

This Saturday, 5,000 M&S customers in the UK are set to get their shopping for free as the retailer launches the first of its kind competition, named ‘Sparks Super Saturday’.

Sparks Super Saturday is an expanded version of M&S’ popular Sparks giveaway where every week, in every store, a Sparks customer gets their shopping for free.

Since M&S relaunched Sparks – its customer reward scheme – in 2020, the retailer has given away £3.5 million in free shopping to its 17m members, including a free shop worth nearly £3.5k.

To be in with a chance of winning, customers need to scan their Sparks card when shopping at M&S in store or log into their Sparks account when shopping online.

Customers shopping in store will find out straight away and those shopping online will be notified via email.

As a result, the upmarket retailer is now encouraging customers who are not Sparks members to sign-up to be in with a chance of winning.

Furthermore, Aldi is also offering customers the chance to win their shopping for free by giving away £100 vouchers to 20 lucky shoppers via Aldi’s Facebook page – which will be hosting the competition – and comment on the post by sharing what their bank holiday weekend plans are.

Entries are open from now until 21 August, with winners being contacted on 22 August.

Director of M&S Connect, Kirsty Ward said: “Since relaunching Sparks as a Digital First loyalty scheme, we’ve doubled the number of Sparks members – rewarding them with personalised offers, special treats and thank yous.

“And one of Sparks’ members most loved rewards is the opportunity to get their shopping for free so, for one day only, we’re supersizing it and giving 5,000 lucky customers the opportunity to get their shopping for free – simply by shopping and scanning their Sparks card in store or online,” she added.

M&S recently raised its profit forecast for the full year as it continues to grow its grocery market share – where like-for-like food sales surged 11% in the 19 weeks to 12 August.
