The new M&S Outlet website

Marks & Spencer and Amazon have launched a new clothing website which promises discounts of up to 40% on M&S clothing ranges.

Amazon will handle orders and deliveries for the new website, called M&S Outlet, while Marks & Spencer will provide the stock.

Which? shopping expert Matt Clear said: 'Amazon.co.uk performed extremely well in our survey of the best online shops, finishing much higher than MarksandSpencer.com, so it will be interesting to see if the M&S Outlet site is able to capture what consumers like so much about Amazon.'

Free delivery 

Standard delivery usually costs £3.50 but you can get free delivery if you spend £30 or more at M&S Outlet before Sunday 4 March. 

To place an order on the website you’ll need to login into (or create) an Amazon account. You can't login with Marks & Spencer account details.

Any orders placed on the new website will be delivered by Amazon and the M&S Outlet site promises that standard delivery items will arrive within 3-5 days. 

Returns policy

Customers who want to bought from M&S Outlet will need to contact Amazon. 

This policy is different to that of the main Marks & Spencer website, which handles returns directly despite also being run by Amazon. 

The first M&S Outlet store opened in November 2000 and there are now 50 M&S Outlet stores around the country, which also offer discounts on selected Marks & Spencer clothes.
