The machine is giving out a voucher for 250 points when you buy 3 dental items. The cheapest way I could see to do this was 3 of their value toothpaste at 59p each, also on 3 for 2 - so £2.50 worth of points (+ 3 tubes of toothpaste) for £1.18.
I'm sure other clever people will work out other ways to use this to their advantage........

    They have a mouthwash at 49p which is also on 3 for 2.

    Visited the advantage machine, got coupons for 250 extra points when buying 3 dental products. So , I got 3 aquafresh toothpastes which are currently half price, costing £1.56 in total, so 94p in profit. Machine let me print 3 lots of vouchers so points galore.

    Also had vouchers for 25% off shampoo or conditioner, so got elvive which is half price, till takes off 25% off full price so, basically paid about £1 for a 400ml bottle of elvive. Again got 3 lots of vouchers.

    Also, ditto for 25% off shower gel, so got the boots shower gel which was half price so ended up paying 30ish pence for a full size shower gel.

    25% off vouchers for deodarant or body spray - again 3 lots of vouchers printed. dove and Nivea on offer at the moment

    Vouchers for £2 off a mascara or lipstick - again 3 lots of vouchers printed. My daughters got the Collection 2000 mascara at £4.99 with a free eyeliner, so not bad - the due for £2.99. (the £2.00 was not deducted automatically, but cashier manually adjusted the price)
  • Hi,
    Thanks ops I went in today and bought 3 lots of boots cheapo mouthwash and 3 lots of half price aquafresh (they only had the £1.54 pumps though) still a bargain though as with the 500 points I got for buying that little lot I'm actually in profit also used 25% off in both transactions!!

    I tried buying some elvive with my 25% off shampoo voucher aswell but it wouldn't go through the till the lady said it was because it was already half price and those vouchers don't work on half price items I just smiled and said okay I'll leave it then!! Is there a particular "flavour" of elvive that you bought? I know it definately wasn't her being a jobsworth as the till made a funny bleeping sound as she tried to put it through.

    I think the voucher is for 25% off shampoo or conditioner?

    I tried it seperately but it wasn't the red one, it was the pink bottle I was trying to buy I will have another go tomorrow thanks.:)

    In my store there was some shower gel and dedorants reduced to 99p but the 25% coupon didnt work on either of these :( I've just started working in a town centre so am loving this Boots game in my lunch hour !!!
