A Season full of sparks

Moreish mince pies, sparkling good champagne, and a pair of snuggly pyjamas; festive shopping can feel so good.

And now, good things can happen every time you shop thanks to Sparks, the digital first loyalty scheme for Marks & Spencer shoppers in Ireland. Simply download the new M&S app to access all of your Sparks benefits in one online source, from instant rewards in store, to offers personalised to your shopping preferences, and even a donation to a fantastic Irish charity every time you shop.

Christmas comes early with Sparks, as it’s guaranteed that every week in every store in Ireland one customer will be rewarded with their shopping for free. Yes, you read that right - imagine hitting the tills and walking away with an entirely free shop! There are little thank yous, too, with smaller sparks of joy from a tote bag to an Apothecary candle to a packet of the endlessly popular Percy Pigs each a possible reward when you stock up at M&S.

Sparks has been a success story in the UK since 2015, where the charity donation feature has achieved an incredible £10 million for worthy UK causes to date. Now, each Sparks transaction in Ireland will see 1 cent donated to an Irish charity of the shopper’s choice, including Focus Ireland, Leave No Trace Ireland, The Alzheimers Society of Ireland, the Marie Keating Foundation and A Lust for Life. It’s the little things that spark joy.
