    Speculating is half the fun (probably more) I miss the old days of waiting up to see if the website goes down and waltzing into my local store when even the staff didn't know the prices had dropped.........

    At least if it's late January, it'll be after payday

    I think we will go back to the pattern after last year and it will be Wednesday 22nd.

    This is just me speculating at the moment but if I get told anything Iíll report back

    Fragrance gift sets have gone further down from today. Someone in my local shop told me they were waiting for the tickets to get delivered but the offer had started.

    Still no date for 70%

    50% is only really 25% off when you allow for the fact that it was mainly 3 for 2 to start with.

    Similarly 70% off us really only 45% off.

    Was in my local large Boots yesterday - I could not believe the amount of 50% stock they had! Normally its 7-8 rows before Xmas, but its now almost all of the first floor - at least 14 rows of the stuff!

    Mostly Lynx and Soap and Glory, the No7 stuff at 50% was sold out straight after Xmas.

    Can't see Boots starting the 70% sale until there is at least a dent in this lot!

    By the way, even at 70% there was still nothing I wanted/needed.

    By the time I got it reloaded every blessed thing in my basket was out of stock

    One sale I bought 4 pairs of bootee slippers because they were some ridiculous low price. The beastly things proved to be practically indestructible and washed really well. I gave one pair away, but more than six years later I am finally finishing off the last pair! As they were all identical there is a family legend that I never buy new slippers

    I think this one is short because the "Boots Sale" bubble has burst. People have lost interest the last few years and personally speaking I didn't go last year because there was nothing I wanted. In previous years I went because of the hype (especially on here) and bought a few bits that I didn't really want or need. I probably won't go this year either.

    It's been 70% off the last couple of years or more but still good at that. I bought some half price items last week as there wasn't a lot left of the couple of brands I wanted. I just decided that 50% was really good anyway and that I probably wouldn't go into town early enough to get what I wanted. I couldn't believe how much of the 50% they had sold in a week since I was last there. From 2 full sides of an aisle and all moved onto about two thirds of one side. I could have saved another £16 but at least I got the items I wanted at a good price without crowds of people trying to get their items.

    I did the same as it was something I wanted and guessed that it wouldn't be in the sale later. Also I used my points.

    Shame though as the Boots 75% sale (as it used to be) was a post Xmas highlight!

    Deffo not as many leftover sales stock/bargains as previous years!

    They are also hopefully learning that not many ppl fancy Makeup sets from Fearne Cotton/Millie Mcintosh/Little Mix!!

    So there he was 200 miles away, bumbling round clutching my list, trying not to trample people and reaching things down from tall shelves - and somebody wrote about him on the Boots sale thread
