    Boots Star Gift thread 27th Sep 16 at 8:31 AM
    Just been into my local store and apparently the first star gift is a Smashbox set, usually about £30 but will be half price. - correction it is £30 cost of the bits would be over £70

    Starts Friday so I'm guessing more details will appear in next day or so.

    I only got a 10% off Christmas Gift voucher


    It doesn't say that it cannot be used on a Star Gift just that the gift must have a green parcel sticker on it.

    Just on the subject of star gifts and points. Does anyone know if you can ise double points vouchers at the points event £10 of points for every £50 spent?

    Also does anyone know..., i have a voucher double points when i buy a christmas gift. Is that double points only on the christmas gift or double points on the whole shop

    The double points voucher would only work for those points on the part over £50. Or that is how it usually works.

    The double points when you buy a Christmas gift is just on the gift.

    The answer will be no it doesn't double the £10 just like it doesn't double it if you have a 500 points if you spend £35 voucher.

    Can anyone advise me how I can find any special offers for me on my account please? I haven't shopped in Boots for some time and I have forgotten how to access the personalised offers. Or is it just more senior moments!!


    Now found them.

    Really not sure if it's worth buying the 17 set. Definitely not worth £40 and can't make my mind up if it'd worth £20. I bought my eldest daughter it last year as a star gift but it just looked more impressive as a set of drawers. Was planning on buying to with my points but trying to work out how much I could buy of the smaller gift sets on the 3 4 2.

    Feeling very underwhelmed by boots again this year. I remember back in the day getting a lot more items for less money. Some of these sets are hardly worth it at half the price let alone full price. I need some more no7 cream but the gift set I normally get at half price is £80 �� So half price makes it £40 and I only really use the creams in the set, hardly seems worth it in contrast to a couple of years ago when it was closer to £30.

    As with all the gift set offers they are only worth it if you are going to use it all. We have a box of No7 stuff from the past few years that will never get used in our house. Think it will be going to the Church Christmas Fair
