Summer’s drawing to a quick close and for once, I think I really enjoyed the hot weather. I’m really not a hot weather kind of person (cue gasps and people declaring that they can’t be my friend anymore… seriously, that’s actually happened to me), I love Autumn and Winter and I think one reason I don’t really enjoy summer (apart from me being allergic to heat, that’s a thing right?) is me not knowing how to dress for the heat. This year I really made a effort to plan a summer wardrobe that I enjoyed wearing (with lots of help from Everything5Pounds haha) and I’m actually hoping for at least 1 more week of hot weather before it’s time to put the summer stuff away and take out all the cold weather clothes. It’s honestly never happened to me before!
Whoops, went on a bit of a ramble there. That whole thing was a prelude to me trying to say that the best part of summer is upon us and that is the – SUMMER SALES. I’m a huge fan of saving money (which is what this blog is all about), about not paying full price and also about only buying what you need. Which is where the Boots Summer Clearance sale comes in because, if you’re anything like me (and we’re probably alike, otherwise we wouldn’t be so into beauty/skincare that we read/write blogs about it!) Boots is probably the place where you’re tempted to pop in for on thing and emerge with half the store.
If that’s not enough, on top of the sale, there’s also a points event going on!
I know it’s been a really long time, life has caught up I’m afraid and while I’ve had a great couple of years, coupled with an effort by myself to stop buying so much makeup, this blog became sadly neglected. I began to get the itch to write again when a couple of weeks back Boots held one of their amazing points events where you get £10 worth of points for a £50 spend, I missed the chance to post about it but, surprise surprise, they’re holding another one this Thursday! So I thought I’d better fire off a quick post now while I still have the chance.
This isn’t as good as the £7.50 worth of points for £30 spend that they’ve had in past summer points events but it’s better than Triple Points events and 10 points per £1 events as well, so if you missed out on the same event that happened a couple weeks ago now’s your chance to get it! I’ve scouted out a few good deals/promos that are going on at Boots now too, so you can double up your savings:
Sorry for another long period of silence, however I’m back with good news, which is a points event from both Boots and Superdrug coming up this Bank Holiday weekend! I’ve honestly been feeling that Boots hasn’t had a points event in way too long, it’s usually customary that they have a great summer one but nothing this year *le sigh* so it’s a treat to have events from both mega-drugstores now.
First up, the Boots event.
As you can see, this is an online only event with a minimum spend of £50 or more. To be honest, the online only requirement doesn’t bug me out, since you get free delivery to your home once you hit £45 anyway (so you don’t have to spend more on delivery). If you really want your items now, as long as you order by 6pm you get to pick it up at your nearest store by noon the next day, so that’s also fine by me. Also, the selection online would tend to be tons better (just a bummer you can’t swatch things but you can do that at your local store before ordering). But there is one thing that makes me feel the Superdrug event this weekend trumps the Boots one…
Whow, Boots is really out-doing itself this year, it seems there’s a points event every week now and we’re still only in November, what’s it going to be like in December?!
Basically, just like last week, you can get £12 worth of Boots Advantage Card points (that’s 1200 points) for every £50 you spend in a single transaction in-store on Wednesday 13 and Thursday 14 November, as usual be careful because this isn’t available in all Boots stores, just some, but the good news is a quick glance at the list shows that there’s more available stores this time! Stores also have extended opening times as always.
In addition to the event, they’ve added a cherry on top of the mince pie, which is that you’d also receive a voucher for 500 Boots Advantage Card points to spend at the next Boots Christmas event.
Helloooo Budget Lovers!
I’m sure you regular readers are well aware of my LOVE of the Boots Points events, some time ago they had a great 10 points for £1 promotion and before that I did a haul post for their £7.50 worth of points for every £30 spent!
Boots really like to reward their shoppers with different points events each time, they don’t just run the same old thing either and that’s one thing I really love about Boots that makes them trump Superdrug in my opinion every time. In terms of in-store offers I feel Boots and Superdrug are comparable but the Boots Points take the cake!! (only thing is only Superdrug stocks MUA… sigh)
This time the offer is:
As you can see from the picture above, the offer is £12 of points for every £75 spent online BUT if you spend the money in-store you’ll get £12 of points for every £50! The offer is on at selected stores only and depending on which store is nearest to you it’s either on for Wednesday 9th October or Thursday 10th October. Read on for more info on which stores are running the offer and when =)
