    Don't you just love Boots! I feel like I've spent most of my life recently looking at Boots' website in anticipation of the sale (having previously spent hours/days trying to order) so was really excited to almost place an order today for it to just disappear, along with most of the items I wanted to buy.

    What's making it worse is that when looking at the toys, I noticed that the web address has the words DIM_PARENT_CATEGORY_ in it...exactly what I feel like for wasting so much time!!!

    Good luck to everyone,

    Happi (or maybe not so Happy)

    How can everything be out of stock now when site was down - im sooooo angry
  • NIMI
    they must have updated the system while it was down, so that stuff that is out of stock can be shown as oos, rather then causing confusion and the whole creating that fiasco that happened last week.
    im well chuffed...........
  • poppysmum

    I just got a couple of different bits online, the Scents of Occasion Gift Set, Fish Party Purse and a few packs of cards. That's it for me now though. Good luck to everyone else today

    Goodness ... What a slog!

    I have finally managed to place an order on the sale stuff ...

    I logged out and filled my basket again and checked out without entering my advantage card details ... I almost couldn't believe it when it went through

    I had a problem with my advantage card being registered to my old account, in the end I registered my new account for a new advantage card so I could use it right away, once my new card comes I'll call them and ask them to transfer the old card points to the new one.

  • Grizzly2002
    I managed to place an order this morning at 8.15am no problems. Tried to place another this aft and got the generic error at checkout, couldnt get back to my basket after that so ended up ringing CS and they placed the order over the phone. See the site is down again, what problems Boots are having over the past week or so! Send in the computer experts to put them right please!

    I'm really hacked off with the whole thing. I had a load of stuff that I wanted to buy before the site crashed first time. Then when it went back up today they all said "Missed Offer" and I couldn't clear my basket.

    Managed to get back in and grab a load of great buys for birthday pressies and then it crashed again!!!

    Get it sorted Boots!

    Boots 75% sale crashed on me within 5 minutes of starting (& I seemed to be on the last, slowest server too) & now the site is down AGAIN.

    Boo to Boots.

    Can anyone who was ordering from when the 75% sale was first on today tell me whether the ruby and millie color compact was back in stock and any soap and glory things? Just wondering whether these were out of stock to begin with or they were in stock today and sold out quick
