    Boots Time Delay Night Serum - 20p! 18th Nov 09 at 11:30 PM
    Time Delay Night Serum was 12, then 11.74, but is now available in stores for 6. If you take this to a manned till (it won't work on SS), and point out that your Skinnie (voucher) is valid for this, because it isn't cleansing, so meets the criteria, they will stare at it very closely , but you just smile brightly and they will, eventually, over-ride it.

    For all you Bright Young Things, this will cost you 1, and you'll earn 24p in points, because, due to the over-ride transaction, the points are based on the till price of 6, so that's a BLC (Boots Logic Cost) of 76p.

    But when it comes to the over 60s, because they have to over-ride it, they take the discount prior to deducting the voucher. So 10% of 6 is 60p, leaving 5.40, less your Skinnie, means you pay 40p.

    Us oldies are then given points on 5.40:- 5 x 4p = 20p, so we've had to pay a BLC of 20p for a 12 cream! Simples!
