    Beware, 70% off in store is yellow stickered - meaning no returns.

    Thanks, just got maximum value from my Christmas M&S gift cards. Only shop at M&S when it's 70% or more off. Makes more sense than buying second hand!

    Items are cheaper in-store. One example - wrapping paper £1.29 on the site, 59p in-store. They are desperate to clear the stock!

    Another example, maternity bras that are full price £32.50 for 2 on the website were £9.99 in-store. Even less than the same product in an alternative colour way on-line, where they were £11.99.

    Pure cotton ladies tartan PJs £10.50 online, £8.50 in-store.

    I didn't know this, thank you.

    I bought a pair of boots in the sale last night. Tried them on again last night and noticed that the insoles have a large Clarks logo on them. I know M&S sell some branded beauty and food products so I checked the attached label but that just says M&S. Not sure if this is an oversight by Clarks - who must have made them - or if it's usual practice now.

    Had another look in the food hall to get some more of the reduced dried fruit and they had masses of them, so v pleased (http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?p=73700026#post73700026)

    Just been to Guildford store, rails and rails and rails of stuff.

    Picked up 2 tops reduced from £30 down to £10 and one scanned at £3.49 and the other at £4.99, the assistant told me to ignore the pricing on the labels as everything in he sale is being reduced further at the tills !!!

    Yeah I think you can get better bargains at the end of the sale than you can in M&S outlet stores too, many a time I've bought an end of sale bargain and then seen it in their outlet stores later in the year more expensive than what I paid.

    Just over a week ago, I bought a pair of leggings in store in the sale for £10 reduced from £25 but they were 'regular' and I prefer 'short'.
    I managed to find a pair online in 'short' and yesterday as I was taking a pair of skinny jeans back that I'd ordered online at the same time, I found a pair in exactly the same size now reduced from £10 to £6.19.
    So I bought them - they actually fit better than the pair bought online - and I'll take the £10 pair back today. Luckily, I'd left the tag on.

    I placed an online order last Sunday. I was browsing the website on Friday, as one does, and all of the items had gone down again. Yesterday, I got an email advising me my order had been dispatched. I phoned customer services and they refunded me the difference, £25.

    I accept that if items have been further reduced after dispatch, then I can either try and order again and take stuff back or pay the first reduced prices.

    We are going to the west end today, so will have a look in the Oxford Street store, though I donít expect to find anything.

    Popped into my local branch earlier, to find that clothes prices were true to YS. The recent stuff is no temptation anyway...perhaps I'm seeing through chazzer-tinted lenses?

    Also to add - there were 2 rails of sale stuff but nothing that I'd even consider paying 10% of the original price for.
