    Only worth it if there are other discounts to be had on stuff that is needed anyway. I fear Boots is aiming for the cosmetic rather than health market here.

    Does anyone actually spend their Boots points?

    I stock up on all my toiletries and vitamins so its worth it for me.
    Yes I do spend my Boots points, I save them all year and use them at Christmas but lots of members on here save them for the 70% january sales each year. I find the Boots points system a lot more generous than others especially with the personal offers they do for extra points. I also get Boots points on mine and hubbies glasses as we use Boots opticians.

    I have no idea, I get a sense of the bargain factor when I accrue them but I've just checked my a/c online and realise I have around £200 in points  :o . Madness given that I wouldn't carry that amount around in cash. I've got so much make-up and don't need any electricals, so just don't know what to spend it on.

    The website is advertising Huda beauty, which I'd never heard of before. I've Googled her images and its caked on so thick she looks like a drag act! There is also a picture of her make-up free, and she looks great without it.

    Boots is so expensive for pretty much everything it sells that the points scheme and the occasional discount such as this one are an irrelevance mostly.  Almost always cheaper to buy elsewhere.

    It's an American owned company with an appalling history of tax avoidance, overcharging the NHS and treating its staff badly - not at all the old Boots that it used to be before it discovered trickier ways of doing business.

    Thanks, I was just about to do a big order of vitamins etc, and thinking twice about it because you can't use your double points, or other points booster vouchers online. But after going into store and finding that their pricing is now more expensive in-store, I think I am being forced online. They have signs all over the shelves in the vitamins and supplements section telling you to go online, if you want their 3 for 2 deals from now onwards. I calculate that the savings I will make from the 3 for 2 is more valuable (I will save about twice as much money, as I would have made from the points vouchers) and also, I will be saving cold, hard cash rather than gaining it back in Boots points. So there you go - it seems they are pushing business online. I rather suspect we will see store closures soon, because they are also reducing the points benefits to over 60s and the Parenting Club.

    That’s an odd decision on their part! Mind you I often do buy my Visionace online from them as stock can be hard to find in the smaller shops and not many/any other chains stock it!

    Thanks for this, I wanted to stock up on my favourite Lancôme eye gel which is £34.50 a go, and the only eye cream I can use that also soothes my sensitive eyes.

    There’s currently an offer where you get £8 worth of points when buying two Lancôme items (one’s meant to be foundation but it applies the promotion anyway) which works in conjunction with this offer, so I got over £18 back in points, YEAY!

    Suntan Lotion/after sun

    Out of this list, its only the sun products I would buy - and I have plenty of them. Everything else can be procured at much better prices elsewhere. Otherwise it is just their skincare that is of interest to me.

    Back to drag-beauty - I caught the Pussycat Dolls on TV last night and they looked awful. One was boasting about being X-factor ready just 6 and a half weeks post her third C-section, what a stupid thing to brag about. The one below should sack her make-up artist:

    One of the joys of middle-age is being less obsessed with your image, not more!
