Sparks is the Marks and Spencer plc (‘M&S’) reward scheme. It comprises a range of rewards, benefits, offers and giveaways ("Benefits") and is free to join.
Anyone 18 years of age or over and a UK resident for the entire period for which you are a Sparks customer. No corporate or business use or participation. Colleagues may be excluded from any aspect of the reward scheme at any time at our discretion. See individual Benefit terms and conditions for more information and qualification. Eligibility will be revoked and we may withhold Benefits if your account is terminated.
Your account is not transferable once activated. Activate and register your card at marksandspencer.com/sparks with your card number and email address to receive your Benefits. You will need to provide a valid mobile or land line number and postal address. Without a valid email address, you will not receive all the regular Benefits associated with Sparks. It is your responsibility to ensure that all your personal details are kept up to date and M&S will not be responsible for any lost, delayed or undeliverable communications if you do not do so.
As a Sparks customer you will have access to a variety of Benefits, you just need to use your Sparks card when you shop either online or in store (excluding BP Connect and Channel Island stores). Each Benefit is free to participate in. You will receive offers and promotions personalised to you. By using your card, you will also be eligible to receive a variety of Benefits such as: (i) receive the value of your shopping for free at the checkout for all transactions which do not include: a) alcohol in Scotland and Wales; b) gift cards; or c) Pay with Me* ("Qualifying Transactions"); (ii) the chance to get thousands worth of shopping for free in M&S e-gift cards; and (iii) product giveaways (such as product gifts from our in-store bakery and apothecary). We will also reward our most loyal customers with "little treats" as a thank you. Recipients of these Benefits are selected at random from all eligible Sparks customers. Inclusions and exclusions will apply and are subject to change. Details of the current Benefits can be found here and this will be updated from time to time.
*Pay With Me is a convenient and optional way to pay for your shop in selected participating stores where an M&S colleague can process the payment for your shop on a handheld device away from a fixed till point.
Benefits may change from time to time, they are subject to availability and if necessary may be substituted by M&S. Product giveaways are redeemable in store only and may be time limited. We reserve the right to withhold Benefits due to eligibility. Discount card holders shall not be entitled to receive the e-gift card Benefit. Benefits are non-exchangeable, non-transferable and no cash alternative is offered. M&S reserves the right at any time in its sole discretion to cancel, void, suspend, modify or supersede any of the Benefits at any time if it believes that the draw to select a Benefit recipient is not capable, or is likely not to be capable, of being conducted fairly or as specified within these terms and conditions due to events beyond its control (including, without limitation, a virus, a computer bug, or other technical issue or unauthorised human intervention or any other cause beyond the reasonable control of M&S that could corrupt or affect the administration, security, impartiality or normal course of the draw). Benefits are awarded randomly by an algorithm to a prescribed average and therefore the frequency with which each Benefit is awarded may vary temporarily from the value stated, or we may change the frequency from time to time where that change is to your benefit. For the avoidance of doubt, the promoter of the Benefits is M&S, of Waterside House, 35 North Wharf Road, London, W2 1NW.
M&S shall have no liability for any delay and/or failure to perform any obligation to the intended recipient of any Benefit or other entrants, including those that is caused by: (a) technical problems of any kind which may limit or prevent any person’s participation in any draw for a Benefit or the awarding of any Benefit; (b) any loss or damage arising from or in connection with the allocation of a Benefit; (c) any act or omission of any third party; or (d) any other events beyond M&S’ control that may cause the allocation or awarding of the Benefits to be disrupted or corrupted. Nothing in these terms and conditions shall limit in any way M&S’ liability for death or personal injury caused by its negligence.
If you select Sparks-supported charity or good cause at registration, M&S will donate 1p to your chosen cause for each transaction you make with us. 1p per such transaction is donated by Marks and Spencer plc to The Charities Aid Foundation (registered charity number 268369) which will, in its discretion pass on your donation to your chosen cause. You may change your chosen cause at any time.
You can terminate your account at any time online at marksandspencer.com within your account. On termination any and all benefits accrued will be lost. We can terminate your account immediately if at any time, you are, or we reasonably suspect you may be, acting fraudulently, criminally or are otherwise in breach of these terms. If your account has been inactive for 12 months we will review it and, in our discretion, may choose to suspend your account.
We can make changes to the eligibility requirements, the Benefits and the terms of the reward scheme at any time if we believe, in our reasonable discretion, that the change is either to your benefit or is required for the continuing administration of the reward scheme. Material changes will be communicated to you via SMS, email or postal communication where we have been provided with contact details by you. We reserve the right to withdraw or cancel the reward scheme at any time giving customers seven days’ notice of termination in writing (via email or postal communications). These terms are correct as of June 2020, and may be updated from time to time by M&S. Current terms are available at marksandspencer.com.
