If you wish to cash in on regular discounts when you shop for clothing or other lifestyle products, knowing how to open a Mr Price account online is a useful place to start.
Having such an account opens up a world of benefits, including shopping vouchers and exclusive offers via Mr Price’s Insider programme as well as data deals with Mr Price Mobile.
