    Is this in the stores as well? And is it basically everything left over from 50%?

    Yep its in the stores. It is usually stuff that they don't sell in the 50%. However last year my local boots store was putting stock out that i hadn't seen in the 3 for 2 or 50%. I'm hoping they do the same again! They were in the 50% so i'm keeping everything crossed!

    Any idea when the 75% sale starts online. Last year i left my computer on all night for 3 days and if I woke up in the night kept going and refreshing the page until is was a bout 4am in the morning when I managed to get some 75% sale items but it was a right nightmare as the system kept crashing and if you didn't check out quick the stuff in your basket dwindled away as other people were checking out before me:confused:

    I would definately put my money on the Sale starting next some time next week, most likely Tuesday. For the last 2 years it has been before the 16th (that is my Daughters Bday).

    I managed to get everything I ordered online last year, think I was just lucky though, as the site crashes every year.

    There is already a thread for this named Boots 50% off sale for more info. Last year I too stayed up nights waiting and it went live about 5.00am and I managed to get most of my order before the site crashed. I also got my OH to take me to the large town near us for opening time. Interestingly enough there were staff , who were obviously not working that day, leaving with bags full while we were queing. However there was plenty left for everyone. I took full advantage of the ACM machine offers and split my shopping in to lots to get the most points. I have only just used up all the bits I bought for Xmas and birthdays. Also if you go on to the site and put the bits you like into your fa vourites when it goes live at 75% you should be able to complete yourorder quicker. I am one of the peopl who subscribed to the original Boots thread on here before it got !!!!!y and was closed down Good luck to all

    Thanks. I will be in the UK for this date and I love sales at Boots. Last time bought 100ml Dior parfume for 15 quid there, which costs around EUR 50 in Amsterdam.

    All truth goes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Then, it is violently opposed. Finally, it is accepted as self-evident.

    I spoke to a friend today who is the manager of a Boots store, she said it was supposed to be tomorrow (13th) but they have postponed it. She hasn't had the new date yet though. :confused:
