    Boots Sale 24th Dec 17 at 11:28 PM
    Now on but taking ages to go through check out....

    Official MoneySavingExpert insert Fri 9 Feb: Speculation as to when Boots will boost its 'up to 70% off sale' to 'up to 90% off' has been around for a few weeks. Here's our Boots sale write-up with all the info we have so far, we'll update it when we know more.

    Big thanks to Mimi Arc en ciel for starting the discussion!

    Hi, do you mind me asking why Tuesday? Wednesday is usually offer promotion day isn't it? Thanks

    It is just guessing until something is announced

    I've just had an email from Boots and it included the following


    "PS Sorry, you may experience some downtime on boots.com from 9pm on Saturday. Just wanted to let you know so you don't miss out"


    What could be happening on Saturday night????

    Got a couple of packs of charity Christmas cards, always useful to have in-stock. 30p for 10. Not quite as good as the 10p per pack I managed in their sale, but that was about 25 years ago! lol I guess not bad considering inflation.

    Loads of Fabletics sets left, some Frozen bar soaps and a few other bits.

Although I'm not sure how it would be received 'happy Xmas, here's a bag I thought would be useful for your sweaty undies'

    Been at Cheshire Oaks outlet today; the Yankee Candle store had most of it's Christmas range at half price plus BOGOF; picked up another couple of the gold bags working out at £5.00 each so cheaper than I paid in the Boots 70% sale

    Boots at Collosium Shopping Park, Ellesmere Port had nothing but, drumroll... yep you guessed it; a load of Zoella calendars

    There are twelve days of Christmas - that is days following Christmas. The period before Christmas is called Advent and that is why those 24/25-day ones are called Advent Calendars.

    So I imagine that the 12 days of Christmas calendars are meant to be given as Christmas presents and "windows" opened one a day from then on.

    That takes you up to Epiphany, when the wise men arrived with their three gifts. That's the end of Christmas.

    I did buy this in the 70% off sale and exactly for sticking dirty underwear in but not at the gym I thought it would come in handy for short trips away when you're thinking 'damn, didn't fetch anything to put knickers/socks/bras that now need washing in' what can I use. Can't remember what I paid now, but didn't have a bag of that shape/size so thought it worth it just for the bag.

    Popped in Meadowhall today, nothing but Zoella Advent Calendars and a sole Fabletics set. Certainly won't be bothering with 90% day...

    This item has been the laughing stock of 2017 and this year too so far.....

    Still 70% off today - did look at a Fabletics set with body wash and body lotion, it had a nice looking microfibre type towel in it which could be useful. Still didn't buy one though.

    Apparently the notebook is tiny. DD also says the cookie cutters snapped on one of the youtube videos she watched on the contents. I'd want one just for the purse I think and I'd keep the candle myself. £5 is the most I'd want to pay.
