Boots Grabbit Bargains Part 51 - Post your finds here

This is continuation of Boots Grabbit Part 50
Updated - 11 March 2009

This post contains all the updated glitches, offers etc and post 2 contains Q&A so please read the first and second posts of this thread for any answers you need. This will save a lot of duplicate questions on this thread.

All Boots seems to have different policies. What happens in one does not necessarily happen in another. :mad:

Successfully getting some of the better glitches often depends on if the SA you pick is willing to try. Its sometimes sensible to buy some other things to 'disguise' your bargain. If the SA won't put it through, please don't make a fuss - they are only doing their job. Just try again another SA / store / day. It is a good idea to try and make a friend in a SA if possible.

    Yes! The official word from customer services is "I can confirm that you are able to use more than one voucher at a time per transaction.

    After talking to a few people it has been agreed to start a new thread in the arms for Boots chat only and to keep this thread for Grabbits only. I will put a note on the start of the other thread too so people know what to post where.

    I know it will take a while for people to get use to posting in the right place so can we all still be nice and just politely direct someone to the correct thread if they are in the wrong one.

    Just to clarify this thread is for Grabbits only, any offers or glitches that are found.

    Just wanted to say again, thank you so much CPG :beer: for all your hard work on this site.

    Being slightly over the age of consent, I often find myself forgetting the current glitches etc, and your helpful hints makes it so much easier to jog my memory.

    Thank you for our beautiful new and glorious thread. :A

    TAKA...re olay GWP

    Yes, i 'bought' mine yesterday with points, after accumulating them with mini TS pts.:T

    Infact i had to ask the SA to help as i had never put through anything with points on the SS tills before, and it was no problem.

    Gillette 97p Foam Mousse going through as 97p today, so looks like the glitch from yesterday has been fixed.
    I bought 3 of these yesterday and paid 97p each time so don't think it was a glitch as such, just one of those random reductions in certain stores. :)
    Yesterday i bought 3 x gillette shaving foams, got 450 points back then got a s&g spray set, nc bath pillow (wish id known i needed 3 when it was 3 for 2 as ive bought 3 now in seperate transactions!) nc eye mask and botanics facial kit with my points. :)
    Thanks for the new thread CPG. :)

    thanks for the new thread CPG , and thanks for making it as clear as you can about the chat v grabbit !

    On topic ..........................Olay green box goes through with the cleanser and the pore scrub in a tube at SS tills with no beep (just a very loud 'ONE FREE').Was a bit disappointed with this though - the brushes and mirror feel a bit cheap and nasty and the samples are about the smallest you can get but hey ho it was free! I also got the Stay Perfect compact with a perkie for £1.35 but was disappointed that the No7 voucher from the GWP was for skincare only and would not go through with a make up item.
    Spent some points on Soap and Glory to stock up with my favourites but still have a few to spend when the next Estee Lauder gift time is out!

    BTW the chat thread is missing!

    BTW found a new use for an advantage card ...........................as a scraper when polyfilla-ing (is that a word?).was upstairs and needed a scraper so OH handed me his card!

    thanx for the new thread cpg!!

    went out quickly to my local and there was nothing really there...no extracts..well couldnt see any and only stuff reduced was dental AGAIN!!! lol so i thought i've got enough of dental things and dont really need anymore so left it. no gillette putting set, no olay GWP, no extracts and no no7 clearance/reductions!!

    hate to say it but mr b, boosting is kinda getting boring!!! please please please bring out something to make it fun again!! (e.g. no7 clearance so can spend purkies and reason to spend on dental-get more purkies :) lol!!!

    Yes elisamoose, i felt the same about the Olay GWP. And since i dont feel it is free (spend to accumulate the points), i looked at the box and thought that it would make a great presentation box for a gift. Both the contents descriptions can be totally peeled off...leaving a lovely small gift box. I was thinking...tweezers, small nail file, JF serum, a few select hand-made chocs, even a small piece of jewellery and a gift vchr...from boots.

    And as it is a sturdy box, it could/would be kept as a keep-sake.
