    It's the offers (discounts) on gifts Boots do every week in the run up to Christmas.

    OP how do you know it's happening 29th September? Normally they start October?

    I don't what people get excited about. They are not worth the money in the first place. They are still trying to flog that Zoella stuff from last year on their website.

    I joined the waiting list but really it's just signing up to receive an email saying when the calendar will go on sale. In the small print they say in signing up they will also email you regarding other promotions/junk :/

    It was go live date in a lot of the larger stores today so stock should be appearing across the shops. I think the local pharmacy stores may be next month.

    I see they are stocking more overpriced Zoella stuff again this year - that will all be in the 70% off sale by the pallette-load if this year was anything to go by.
