    Interesting little factoid from Boots today: when they have a triple points day, as they had today, you can't also use paper vouchers for spend thresholds but if you've loaded them on your card they can't prevent it and you get both :money: Bonus points for buying specific products also work. This amounted to points equivalent to 20% discount today and pushes my total to:

    #3 £418/£650

    I found this out the other week. I spent so much in Boots that I got £11.50 worth of points and the cashier told me this while she was serving me. :beer:
