    I worked in Boots over Xmas 2005, can't say I have any huge insider knowledge though in terms of photo processing:
    • They're certainly not the cheapest place to get photos developed (£2.99 for 27 photos over 6 days in most stores, rising to £5.99 for 27 photos in 1 hour) but you always get 100 bonus points (i.e. £1 in points) for taking a Boots brand film back there to be processed. Teedy23's post suggests they may sometimes offer 200 points now.
    • If you want to buy camera film and are happy with Boots's own brand (inc. the 100 points processing offer), ignore the tempting looking 3 for 2 on single packs and seek out the bags of 5 films, I know 5 35mm films were £7.50 when I worked there vs. something like £5.98 for 3 using the other offer! Can't remember if they were 24 or 36 films.The 5 packs were always a hit hidden away in my store but you always get the 100 point offer on that as well.
    • Look out for the £1 extra set/photos on a CD offers that often run when using 1 hour processing vs the normal price of £2, if you want one of these anyway you're effectively getting 1 hour service for the price of 24 hours.
    • The digital photos were often on long-term promotion at 7p each if you get 100 or more processed from a CD/memory card in the lab which I believe is equivalent to what Jessops and the other places offer, plus you're getting the advantage points too.

      Non-photo tips which springs to mind at the moment:
    • Pre-Christmas last year they did "get a £5 voucher when you spend over £X" (£15 or £20 I think) for about 2 weeks which could be spent on almost anything, in the following 2 weeks, I think it was called a "Bonus Voupon". It was meant to encourage people to come back and do some more Xmas shopping there. The reason I bring this up is that you could earn the voucher through mobile phone top-ups, so top up your phone £20 and you got a free £5 to spend the next week. The 2 periods for the vouchers were the second half of October and the first half of November I believe, then they did the triple points promotion, I'm not sure how that ties in with this year.
    • When you use the points ATM make sure it knows you're happy to recieve offers in the post, then you'll get a 2 use double points coupon (and some others) every now and then. Using the double points coupon AND qualifying for triple points during one of those promotions gives you 4* points.

    Sorry the above is a bit vague I literally haven't had a chance to go back since I left in March, I imagine most of the offers are the same though I'm not sure what Voupon promotion they have planned if any. Hope this may be of some help.

    EDIT: Sorry I've just realised a couple of those points aren't directly to do with the Advantage points. Will delete them if this is considered "off-topic" advice!

    Not sure if this will work in all boots but at a recent triple points weekend I purchased some vouchers (100) and used my advantage card and gained roughly 12 quid in points. I then spent the vouchers over the weekend again receiving roughly 12 quid. 24 quid off effectively. I just bought loads of little gifts from boots and most of them paid for on points!

    Did anyone do their christmas present shopping online this year? i landed a good deal a few week back when it said spend 20 on ulay products and get 1000 in points, i was in my element, i have 5 sisters, and lots of neices, i was getting the moisturizers, and the wipes, and everyone will be happy to have ulay, and i will be happy to buy perfume in Jan sale with my points.

    I also got the shower gels bogof offers and bought loads of them, i saved quite alot of money last month buying off the online boots.

    If anyone knows of another points from boots coming up that can match that i be really pleased, i am addicted to boots!

    *Please note i am new so i hope i am adding this in the right place - i have lurked for months and read everyone's messages, so unlurked, and wanting to join in now*
  • sheahoney
    I have a quick question...

    I have just been reading on a review site about boots advantage card, is it true the points are only on the card for a year and then they are dissolved?

    This is the quote i am reading...

    The only downside to this is that your advantage card points expire within one year, however, having never had any on my card for that long ? I cannot vouch for this personally)

    I am like what, oh no, panic, surely thats wrong?
