Old 3 for 2
£40, £35, £35, £18.99,
Traditionally in a 3 for 2 deal you get the cheapest items free, which means this lot would cost us £128.99, which isn’t a huge saving and doesn’t exactly encourage bulk buying.
Some people have gotten around this by buying products in threes, grouping expensive products together for bigger discounts. Now Boots will do that for you. Confused? I was too.
£35, £18.99, £16, £12.50.
Boots will rank your shop from high to low and give you every third item free, saving you much, much more. With this system, our shop will cost £109.99, which is actually a third off (or very close to it).
NYX and No7 are the only advent calendars not currently part of the Boots 3 for 2 on gifting offer.
Advantage Card offer
This weekend (Friday 29th Sept to Sunday 1st Oct (in store) or Monday 2nd Oct (online)) Boots are giving out 20 advantage card points for every £1 spent. (Normally you’d get 4 per £. And remember, 1 point = 1p to spend in store).
You’ve got to spend over £50 to get the deal, but if you can get your xmas shopping done now, you’ll get 1/5 of your spend back (eg. spend £50, get £10 of points).
Combine these deals to get 1/3 off your christmas shop, and 1/5 of that money back to spoil yourself with!
