    Hi, this is my first post.

    Ive just been into my local Boots as having no luck with the website, I spent 65 but I saved just over 200 and got loads of pressies for during the year and next christmas, and used my vouchers and got nearly 800 points too, so all in a good half an hours shopping. Not loads to choose from but got some great 'Hackett' gift sets reduced from 45 to 11 !, I'm going to keep on trying with the website though as a few bits I really want that were'nt in store. Good luck everyone !

    Hi this is my first post.

    Just a little head's up, Boots will also be hosting a 90% off sale in a few weeks, but I know that not a great deal will be left by that point, seems a good idea to grab it now!

    I've been trying for an hour to scroll through the offers and just as I was about to checkout, the site crashed!

    Just been into my local one.
    Loads of stuff except 2 girls took practically everything.

    They had a list with them and everything they liked they took all of the items

    I was so annoyed. They had 6 big sack fulls. Everyone was trying to look but they kept taking it all. I couldn't do that I'd feel terrible.

    All I wanted was one thing and they had the whole lot of them.

    I have come home fuming. I know it's first come first serve, but that was just pure greed.

    Oh well guess they spent all their doll money now.

    The last time Boots had a decent sale, some of the items were out of stock, even after money had been taken from my account...

    they refunded it obviously, but until your order arrives don't count on getting everything you ordered.

    Their site and stock control aren't up to scratch.
