Every day from December 1-12, Sparks customers will receive a special festive offer to use across M&S apparel, home, food and beyond.

But every door can’t be opened and claimed TO DAY – so customers should make sure they’re signed up for Sparks and have the M&S app downloaded to their smartphone, ready to take advantage of the first prize giveaway on Wednesday.

On one of the 12 days, customers will have the chance to enter a draw for a chance to win two tickets to an EXCLUSIVE SPARKS VIP GARY BARLOW CHRISTMAS PERFORMANCE and Q&A.

100 pairs of tickets are up for grabs for the exclusive Sparks event taking place in London before Christmas. Sparks customers will need to visit the app each day and open the door to find out.

Other prizes include a print run of 100 signed copies of M&S Brand Ambassador Holly Willoughby’s new book, Reflections, 15 personal Christmas video messages from England rugby star and M&S brand partner Maro Itoje, plus various freebies and discounts on your purchases at M&S ​​this Christmas. This includes 25 M&S gift cards of £1000, 100 x £500 and 100 x £250 and 100 Snowglobe M&S gins.

Speaking of Advent Calendars, Danielle Papagapiou, Loyalty Manager at M&S, said: “Through Sparks, we aim to help our customers have the most fantastic Christmas this year, and we’ve done everything we can to offer 12 consecutive days of M&S Deals, Treats and Rewards to start December.

“Every day we’ll be giving a new surprise to every customer in their Sparks hub on the M&S app and hope it adds a little M&S Sparkle to their festive Christmas shopping.”

Here’s how to use the advent calendar, according to M&S: “Each door can only be opened and claimed on the day of its choice. Any unopened door will expire at midnight and cannot be claimed retrospectively. Validity periods will vary – for example, food offers are valid for 7 days while partnership offers will be valid for even longer.
