It seems like every couple of months there’s a 20% off at M&S voucher! If you can hold off, it’s worth waiting until the deals come along. I’ll list these and other great offers on this page.
Remember with most of these deals you can stack them, meaning you can combine the offers to get even bigger discounts.

20% off shopping at Marks and Spencer
The 20% off codes have been less frequent in the last couple of years (there were almost every month at one point!) but when they do appear you usually need to have a Sparks membership – or know someone who does (more on joining below).
You can either activate the offer to your card from your online account or the Sparks app. You might also get some an email or vouchers in the post, including spare codes to give to friends and family members, though I’ve not had these in quite a while.
It’s a lot rarer for generic codes for everyone. When these offers come up there’s often a digital code (which I’ll share here), and occasionally a voucher you can print to use in stores.
The most recent one I spotted in my account ran 10th October to 14th October. Sometimes the offer is split over two weekends, so if you didn’t have the same dates as me, it could be the weekend after.
Get regular discounts with an M&S Sparks Card
It’s not just the occasional 20% off everything with Sparks. There’s often 20% off specific food or clothing items. It’s hit and miss. Half the time the offers I’m given are no good, but you do occasionally get some decent ones. Watch out for offers such as £5 off when you spend £35 on food. It’s worth signing up though.
You also earn points each time you shop which in theory give you early access to sales and other promotions.
Switch your bank to M&S Bank to get £220 in vouchers
If you’re willing to switch bank, M&S Bank offers £100 upfront in vouchers to spend at Marks, and another £80 if you stay for a year. More details on my bank switching deals page.
Earn cashback, including a bonus of up to £17
You can shop at the M&S website via cashback sites such as Quidco and TopCashback, earning you money back on each purchase. If you’ve not used either of these sites before you can also get up to £17 extra as a first-time user bonus.
Swap old clothes for an M&S voucher
You can get a £5 voucher to spend on M&S clothes when you take old clothes to Oxfam. More details on the Shwop scheme.
My tricks to spend less on M&S food
Thought it’s one of the pricier supermarkets I tend to shop at M&S most weeks as it’s the one right by my office. To help make it more affordable I use a number of tricks. You can read about them here.
