How much are Boots Advantage loyalty points worth?
The Boots Advantage card allows you to rack up four points for virtually every £1 you spend on almost any product in Boots stores and online.
Every point is worth 1p, so once you’ve built up 100 points you will have £1 to spend.
Put another way, you're effectively getting 4p back for every £1 you spend (albeit in points rather than cash), which is far more generous than most other loyalty schemes, especially Tesco Clubcard and Nectar points.
Here are some tips on earning extra Boots Advantage points to make the most out of the loyalty scheme.
Wait for triple points events
Boots regularly holds points events online and in-store.
These usually apply to certain types of products or themes (such as sun protection, after sun and sunglasses) but if you can take advantage you can earn 12 points for every £1 you spend.
Keep an eye on email alerts and posters in-store to find out about the next one.
Don’t just shop for toiletries
Boots sells more than sun cream and shower gel.
You can also buy big-ticket items like hairdryers and even kitchen appliances.
For example, this Bosch dishwasher is available or £279 and will bag you 1,116 points, equal to £11.16.
Just make sure you’ve compared prices elsewhere to ensure you are getting a good deal before heading to the checkout.
Don't just delete the emails
Boots sends out regular emails to Advantage cardholders packed full of ways to earn extra points.
That might be details of the latest mega points event or a coupon to use to earn bonus points on selected purchases.
Get the Boots App
You can use it to see your points balance on the go plus it provides personalised offers which you can load onto your Advantage card to use in store.
The app also allows you to shop for your favourite items, print photos, make an appointment and find your nearest store – making it simpler to focus your spending with Boots to maximise your points.
It might even automatically send you offers when you're out and about.
Join the clubs
Boots has a couple of clubs available exclusively to Advantage cardholders.
The Parenting Club offers those who are pregnant up to when their child turns three an extra 10 points for every £1 spent on baby products. It also dishes out personalised offers for you and baby plus free gifts at certain times of the year.
Meanwhile members of the More Treats for Over-60s club, can collect an impressive 10 points per £1 spent on Boots-branded products including No7, Boots Pharmaceuticals, Soltan, and Botanics.
The club also offers extra points on a hearing check-up, invites to exclusive in-store events and 25% off your first pair of prescription glasses or sunglasses.
Use your eyes
Advantage cardholders can earn one point for every £1 spent at Boots Opticians.
So, the next time you need an eye test or new prescription glasses it’s worth heading over to a store.
You could also earn regular points by getting your contact lenses with Boots Opticians.
Print your snaps
Want to print some holiday snaps or make a personalised gift? It’s worth doing it through Boots Photo to earn extra points.
You can earn one point for every £1 spent at Boots Photo, while members of the Parenting Club can earn 10 points for every £1 spent.
