    Boots has started a parenting club where you can get free makeup, Huggies newborn kit, Aveny gift pack and 500 extra boots points. Plus extras when you buy other baby products


    "
    All offers will be sent in the form of vouchers by post

    * Parents with babies aged three months to two years at the time of joining will receive 500 Advantage Card points.
    * Pregnant women and parents with babies under 3 months old at the time of joining will receive a Huggies (R) Newborn Starter Kit (worth 24.99) free when they buy any pack of Huggies (R) nappies, and will also receive a Free Avent Gift Pack.
    * Women who join before they are 28 weeks pregnant will receive a Free No7 and a Free Soltan product, as well as the Huggies (R) Newborn Starter Kit and Avent Gift Pack (details of these offers as above).

    I checked by ringing the Boots Advantage Card line what exactly is meant by 2 years - sure enough, it means up to/under 2, not up to/under 3 (my son's two and a half).
    Doh! It's the same with Pampers and Huggies - they stopped sending money-off vouchers as soon as he turned 2. Yeah, right, as if he was going to be fully potty trained by then (still isn't).
    Even so, I've "registered" for the parent's club via the in-store Advantage Card machine (I didn't fib about his age)- fingers crossed they send me some vouchers etc anyway, although I'm not holding out for the 500pts.
    The lady on the hotline said that if the baby club was a success, they would probably extend it to toddlers. Thing is, by then, he'll probably be at school!

    Andykolo - to get the most from this have you thought about getting another card, maybe in your name - you could then register the baby on one and the toddler on the other - that way you get the best of both!

    I know it's cheating but Hey, who cares?! :rolleyes:

    Hello
    I signed up as soon as I saw this - my baby is now 2 weeks overdue according to scan dates (induction on Tuesday - went through this with first born as my waters broke and he was 3 weeks early and over 9lb - I think this one is just too big to get out!)

    but I have still to receive any vouchers for my huggies goody box or avent stuff! Has anyone got theirs and is the box of goodies worth it?

    The 500 points voucher is in the back of the baby magazine, the avent pack is ok, i think the huggies one is better but i didn't need any nappies. Check you get the points though, the woman scanned it, I only saw it hadn't added when I left the shop. They were fine when iwent back, i think they've only just been sent out and the tills weren't ready for us yet!

    boots at the oracle in reading are giving an extra free gift bag if you sign up today or saturday.
    it contained free samples including an estee lauder mascara (3.5ml), 5ml of hydrating cream,cornplaster sunsilk shampoo sachets, soltan sachets and a couple of other sachets.
    probably not worth making an extra trip but if you're going into reading worth waiting to sign up.

    The vouchers on attached to the letter not in the magazine.
    I think you have to have child under 2 to get 500 points but i'm not sure....

    Got my points put on today.

    Now have 15 to spend in there now.

    Think I will keep saving them for when I really need something.

    I've merged these threads together as they both relate to the new parenting club.

    Yesterday I got my mag and first vouchers inc the 500 points as I have a toddler, then I updated my details to say i am pregnant and today got all the new mother to be free gift vouchers plus more advantage vouchers - free No7 makeup, Soltan and Mediterranean Products voucher. Will also get sent the free huggies newborn starter pack (had this with my first and it is fab - still use it!) and avent gift set nearer my due date. Great stuff this!
