A lot of products can be found for less in competitor stores or online, however this would involve more shopping around. For convenience of getting all the essentials in one place, Boots is very reasonably priced.
Boots customers can shop on boots.com or discover health information on Boots.WebMD.com. Founded in 1849, Boots now offers omni-channel shopping, integrating its “click and collect” service with its store portfolio, allowing customers the convenience of roughly 2,500 pick up points. Approximately two thirds of online orders are collected in store, many driving repeat transactions in store when customers come to collect.

I would highly recommend Boots, especially when you factor in their loyalty programme.
The Boots advantage card has exclusive offers for card holders and also offers 4 pts per £1, which is quite high in comparison to other brands.
Using my exclusive offers I was able to collect almost 500 pts from my shop which equates to £5 that I can now spend in store on anything.
You earn 4 points for every £1 you spend, with 1 point being worth 1p. So, 100 Boots points are worth £1and 1000 points worth £10, and so on.
That’s a 4% cashback or discount rate, depending on how you look at it.
If you don’t want to faff about working it out though, you can use the handy Boots points calculator below to work out your points value.
How to Collect Boots Points in-store
Simply hand your card over to the cashier who will scan it and allocate the points to your account.
If you’re still waiting for your permanent card and you can either use the temporary paper card from your in-store application form or a print-out of the barcode if you signed up online.
If you don’t have either of these, you can ask for your receipt to be validated so you can add the points to your Advantage card within 30 days of the purchase.
How to Collect Boots Points Online
There are two ways to collect Boots points online. You can either:
Fill in your Advantage Card Number manually at the checkout. You’ll have to do this every time you buy something though, so linking it will probably save a lot of time in the long run.
Collect Points with the Boots App
As with most loyalty schemes these days, the Boots Loyalty Scheme has an app too that lets you scan your Advantage Card using your phone.
Plus, when you download the Boots app and scan your Advantage card to link it, you can earn 200 Bonus points (worth £2) when you make any transaction in-store.
Boots Parenting Club
The Boots Parenting Club is exclusively available to Advantage cardholders. So, if you’ve already got little ones or have a baby on the way it’s probably worth getting an Advantage Card just for this.
How Do I Redeem / Spend Boots Points?
To redeem your points, you need to have enough points on your card to cover the total cost of the item you’re buying. You can redeem in-store by presenting your card to the cashier and letting them know you want to pay using your points. You spend your points online you’ll either need to link your Advantage Card to your boots.com account or manually enter your card number at the checkout.
I will definitely be shopping at Boots again in the near future.
