You can get an M&S freebie every month with this little-known hack!
Whether you’re team Percy Pig or team Colin the Caterpillar I think we can all agree that there’s nothing like an M&S snack to cheer you up on a down day.
Now, while M&S definitely isn’t the most student-friendly shop thanks to its high prices there’s actually a way to get a free packet of M&S sweets every single month which you might not know about.
How can I get free Percy Pigs?
In order to redeem your monthly reward you’ll need to take part in the M&S sustainability scheme. All you have to do is make sure that you have the M&S app and an account and then take your pre-loved clothes to your local M&S Shwop bin. When you drop off your clothes you can scan the QR code on the app and as a reward, you’ll be offered a free bag of Percy Pig or Colin the Caterpillar sweets as a thank you!
So, not only will you get a free and tasty reward but it’s also a great way to motivate you to recycle your clothes. Your clothes don’t need to be from M&S to donate them, so you can donate clothes, bags, jewellery, shoes, accessories, bras, curtains, and even towels to your local M&S Shwop box regardless of where you bought them from. M&S will then recycle, resell, or reuse everything that’s donated so nothing goes to waste.
Alternatively, if you donate M&S clothes to a Shwop box in your local Oxfam store you’ll get a £5 M&S voucher you can use for anything of your choice in the store (this could get you at least 2 bags of Percy Pigs).
This is perfect for anyone that wants to get rid of their old clothes but doesn’t have time to sell on Vinted or Depop.
So, if you need a huge wardrobe clearout for summer now’s the time to do it as you can reap this reward monthly.
