    If you think about it, 3 £10 gifts in the 3for 2 cost £20. Now at 50% off they cost £15, so they have only really reduced the item by 25% at the moment. Nice, but nothing special.
    The 75% off will give those items for £7.50, so this is really a 65% (ish, to early for maths) which is better but nothing amazing really.....................

    If and when it does happen the stock will be snapped up by ebayers! People who buy for themselves and for presents have desserted Boots and gone to Body Shop etc. In my case it was Body Shop goodies and slippers from Sports Direct.

    My friend does a lot of e-baying and most of the Boots stuff wouldn't sell anyway unless it was S&G OR Sanctuary.

    Boots have defo not played the game this year. I can almost forgive them for last year because of the snow, but this is madness. Iv'e already spent most of my money in the bodyshop and wilkinsons so I haven't got much left for boots. I expect to come out with at least a small carrier bag full of items that I like, if not I will NEVER forgive them.

    My relationship with mr boots is ruined, I never should have left my old boyfreinds Mr Marks and Mr Spencer, my true loves.

    I just wanted to let you know that not everyone who buys in bulk in the 75% sale are ebayers. I'm on the PTA for my son's junior school and we buy lots to sell cheaply to the children for the mothers day and fathers day stalls. We only add 50p or so to the price and that way the mums get a nice gift (better than the cheap wholesalers tat) and the school makes some profit :T
    There's a skinny woman inside me screaming to be let out. A cookie soon shuts her up!!! :rotfl:

    No sale for me this year, I will be going to the Bodyshop and buying some lovely gifts for people today. I've given up waiting, would rather take my custom else where. I'll go to boots and spend what points I have, then shop elsewhere for the rest of the year:j

    If they cant reward loyalty, then I will not be a loyal customer!
