Boots Advantage Points Event

Hello Everyone,

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:

Boots and Superdrug Points Events this Bank Holiday Weekend!

Hello Lovelies,

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…

Deal Alert for the Ladies – Free Pack of Always Dailies

Hello Everyone!

Whow, TGIF! I’ve had back to back rehearsals all week and this is going to go on for another couple of weeks, I love it but it’s been pretty knackering so I’m looking forward to the weekend. Except I’ve also a pile of admin work to get to this weekend so… >_< oh dear! Anyway, detracting from the issue at hand… today I have for you a lovely deal which is a completely free pack of Always Dailies Pantyliners!

Lol, this is totally for ladies only (unless you’re a man who wants to get some for your sister or girlfriend or wife or something but what are the odds of that?!).

Bargain Alert – Boots 3 for 2 (and how to shop it)

Morning Everyone!

Hands up, I love it when Boots has a 3 for 2 and I straight up cannot resist it. In fact, I find it hard to resist any good sale or offer (practically kicked myself for missing Kiko’s amazing offer over Valentine’s weekend!), because the rest of the time I feel I’m very, very good. I have a massive wishlist and I never get anything on it until it does on offer. Don’t buy anything full price girls! And now Boots has a 3 for 2 on so I thought I’d share with you what I’m eyeing to get.

3 for 2 mix & match It’s not just skincare by the way! It’s 3 for 2 on makeup as well! Definitely a great offer but a bit too much choice, eep.3 for 2 mix & match And haircare oh my goodness me… I think the main trouble with these offers is to resist being tempted into buying something you wouldn’t have bought anyway. I’m obviously a penny-pincher (the blog title says it all!) and yet even I have the odd bit of makeup in my bathroom that I’ve never, ever used. Oh the shame… it’s just a waste, isn’t it?

Amazing Boots Deals On Now – Real Techniques 3 for 2!!!

Hi All!

Those of you who’ve been following my blog for awhile will know how long I’ve been eyeing Real Techniques brushes but I’ve been holding out on buying them (even during Boots Points Events!! Which says a lot…) because I know that Real Techniques would go on a 3 for 2 offer at some point and it finally has!!!

Additional bonus: there’s the Triple Points Bonus Event this weekend too!! It’s 12 points per £1 spent instead of 4 points above a minimum spend of £30, which isn’t too hard to reach with makeup…

If you’ve nothing else to do this Sunday, I highly suggest you hike it down to Boots asap, sign up for an Advantage Card (if you don’t already have one) and buy whatever stuff you want in lots of 3 (lol).

There’s quite a lot of things on a 3 for 2 offer, obviously the cheapest item is free so be savvy in your shopping picks. If you get a couple of the Real Techniques brush sets which cost about £20 each you might as well treat yourself to something else that’s around the same price, I’ve picked up the No. Lift and Illuminate Serum because I’ve heard rave reviews about it on Amodelrecommends.

A lot of the makeup is on 3 for 2 as well, including Revlon, Rimmel, L’Oreal, Maybelline… the list goes on!

In plain maths, with the triple points event (which gives you a 12% ‘discount) and which a 3 for 2 offer (which, at its best, will give you a ‘discount’ of 33%) you get a 45% ‘discount’!!

When I put it like that, you realise how good the deal is isn’t you 😉

So get shopping, now’s the time to really stock up!

It’s best if you already had a wishlist you’ve been working on and putting together, I always have one so when a sale or a good deal rolls round I know just what I want to get and I don’t end up being tempted by lots of other products I know I don’t really need/want. 😉

That’s worked so well that I’ve basically ticked off most of my stuff on my current wishlist (ie. I’ve also bought nothing else besides the stuff I had listed), time to work on another!

And even if you’re 100% there’s nothing you want for yourself (really?!) you can definitely pick up a good deal for someone as a Christmas present! There’s also the Boots Star Gift of course.

HAPPY SHOPPING!
