Are you wondering about Marks and Spencer reduction times?

marks and spencer reduction times

You’ve probably heard someone saying ‘you know you have made it when you can do your food shopping in Marks and Spencer’. 

Well then, I must have made it because I shop in there often…I just don’t pay the full amount!

Why choose M&S food

Let’s be real for a moment – the quality and variety of food available in M&S is fantastic. However, the prices reflect this, and despite competing with some of the cheaper supermarkets on the basics, anything ‘fun’ comes with a hefty price tag. 

Whilst shopping at Lidl can save you money, Marks and Spencer is one of the best stores to pick up a decent food Bargain during their reduction times, and you can always guarantee that their food will last that little bit longer than their competitors.

How to find the Marks and Spencer reduction times

I always talk to the Staff in the Food department and they are often absolutely fab, so when I asked them if they would tell me the reduction times, a lovely lady, who shall remain anonymous told me that there are three waves of reductions.

The first wave of reductions are often of around 10% and this usually kicks of around 9am, so you can pick up some mangos for example that were originally £3 down to £2.70, which isn’t a great saving but if you pick up several things, then that is a couple of quid that you have saved in your pocket.

The second Marks and Spencer food reductions usually kick off around 2pm and they tend to knock around 30% off items.  So for example, if you picked up a leg of lamb that was £10 then it would now be £7 and you would get a three pounds saving on the original price.

This is a great time to pop in if you have to pick the kids up from school, as you can just nip in before and often pick up some discounted snacks to give them on the journey home. I often pick up the bananas or apples that have been marked down, then both the children and I are happy.

Now the mad, your crazy not to take it reduction is usually after 5pm, but always ask a friendly member of staff to confirm your shop reduction timings. This is where they will mark things down from between 70 to 90% which is ruddy fab!

This is when I try and pop in and pick up several things to put in the freezer, I have picked up luxury sausages for 70p, chickens for £1.10 and fresh produce for next to nothing.

But what I always say is please be respectful of the staff member with the reduction gun, please don’t lean on their shoulder ( it goes on !) and only take what you need so that everybody has a chance of picking up a bargain.
