Boots logoBoots up to 70% off clearance sale boost*It won't confirm, but expected on Friday. Possible £24 No7 set

Sales boost?

The wait for the Boots* up to 70% off in-store sale boost appears to be nearing its end as staff have told us they are all geared up and ready to go at a moment's notice.

This is one of the biggies MoneySavers wait for each January, and rumours have been building over the past few weeks, both in our forum and widely online, with it initially expected to boost from up to 50% on Wed 11 Jan.

Boots has confirmed it WON’T boost on Wed 18 Jan - meaning a delay based on what it has done in previous years – and refused to confirm when it will be. However, sources have told us to expect it to start on Fri 20 Jan. Here’s why we’re confident the sale boost is imminent:

We unearthed this clue

Why we think it'll boost this week:

  • We’ve been into stores and unearthed 70% off signs (see image) hidden behind the half-price sale posters, which staff have told us are ready to be flipped over any time.
  • All six stores we visited had moved sale stock onto one or two shelves by Mon 16 Jan, a change to the store layout to make it faster for staff to change sale messaging.
  • On Tue 17 Jan, Boots staff in store and over the phone confirmed its sale would boost, but couldn’t say when as they had not been told by head office.
  • It has boosted its sale to up to 70% off for the last two years (prior to this, it was up to 75% off).
  • Last year it boosted its sale to up to 70% off on Wed 13 Jan – the third Wednesday after Christmas – and has done so five times in eight years.
  • The latest it's started has been the fourth Wednesday after Christmas in 2010, 2011 and 2014 - which would be Wed 18 Jan.

We'll update you here and on MSE Deals Twitter and Facebook when we know more. 

What we expect to be included:

Based on what is currently in the sale, here are some examples of popular gift sets that are likely to have up to 70% off in stores (though there are no guarantees):

  • No7 'City Lights' set for £24 (currently £40 in up to 50% off sale. Norm £80, contents £140ish if bought separately).
  • Champneys 'Spa Treatment Time' set for £15 (currently £25 in up to 50% off sale. Norm £50, contents £54ish if bought separately).
  • Sanctuary Spa 'Make a Wish' set for £13.50 (currently £22.50 in up to 50% off sale. Norm £45, contents worth £46ish if bought separately).

Of course, there’s no guarantee your local store will have all of the above - it depends on stock.

What's on at the moment?

The up to 50% off gifts sale is continuing online at Boots* and in stores while stocks last, so you'll still be able to get a discount and you'll have more choice than after the sale boosts so it's up to you whether you'd prefer to wait and risk missing an item you'd like. Examples of strong savings we found on Tue 17 Jan include:

Wilkinson Sword logo£2 off Wilkinson Sword Quattro bikini*On-pack coupon, can you find 'em?

255 days left

If you're planning on buying Wilkinson Sword Quattro for women papaya & pearl complex disposable razors, check the front of the three-packs as you might be able to find a coupon for £2 off Wilkinson Sword Quattro for women bikini razors.

Papaya & pearl razors are £5.50 in Asda* or £5.79 at Boots*, and we've spotted the packs containing the coupons (see image for what to look out for) in both stores.

The Wilkinson Sword Quattro bikini razor is £5.50 in Asda*, so £3.50 using the coupon, which is valid until Sat 30 Sep 2017 (see full T&Cs). Happy hunting!

Boots logo£1 Boots meal deal*Every Monday via app. Sandwich/fruit salad, snack & drink

Ongoing

Smartphone users can get a Boots meal deal every Monday from 11am to 2pm for £1 via the O2 Priority Moments app. Simply show the code from the app to staff at the checkout. 

O2 has been offering £1 Monday meal deals for other retailers including Domino’s Pizza and Upper Crust for more than a year, but recently changed its terms and now you can only get one £1 meal deal out of all those available.

The Boots meal deal is normally £3.29 (£3.79 in London) and includes:

  • One main including: sandwich (norm up to £3.25ish each), sushi (norm £3ish), fruit salad (norm £2.50ish)
  • One snack including: crisps (norm up to £1.50ish), fruit (norm £1.50ish), small sushi (norm £1.30ish)
  • One drink including: Naked fruit smoothie (450ml, norm £2.50ish), Innocent super Smoothie (360ml, norm £2.35ish), Coca-cola (500ml, norm £1.35ish) 

Prices may vary in every store, but at the Boots nearest MSE Towers, we picked up a BLT, prawn mayo and chicken salad triple sandwich, Walkers sunbites crackers and dips and a Naked fruit smoothie. Individually it would cost £7.25, or £3.79 in the normal Boots meal deal, so £1 for the lot is a cracking saving.

How to get it

If you're on O2 and you haven't got the app already, you can download it for free from Apple's App StoreGoogle Play for Android or Microsoft's Windows store. Open the app, search for 'Boots' and the offer should appear.

Once you redeem the offer, it'll give you a unique code which you need to show on your smartphone in store at Boots. The deal will only appear on your app on Mondays, so you will not see it on any other days. 

Warning: If you click accept you'll only have five minutes to redeem the offer, so make sure staff at the checkout are ready and know how to accept the offer before you tap 'Use it now'.

Not on O2?

There's a sneaky way of getting Priority Moments offers even if you're not an O2 customer. It might be too late for you to get this deal, but you can get prepared for the next O2 Priority Moments freebie. See our O2 Priority Moments for EVERYONE! guide to find out how.

Boots logoBoots discounts via app*Download app and use offers in stores

Ongoing

If you have a Boots Advantage Card, you can get personalised offers and discounts at Boots* by downloading the Boots app. The offers vary for each person, as they are tailored to your shopping habits.

How to get the app and offers

  • Download the Boots app* via the App Store or Google Play.
  • Go to 'My offers' and sign in using your Advantage Card number. This links your card to the app and you can then select offers by loading them onto your card.
  • Choose the offers you'd like to use in 'Offers just for me' and select 'Load offer to Advantage Card'.
  • Next time you use your Advantage Card, the cashier or self-checkout will ask you if you want to use the offer in that transaction. 

What can I get?

These are some examples of offers we've seen when trying the app (of course as the offers are personalised, not everyone will receive the same ones):

  • £1.50 off when you spend £15 or more in a single transaction
  • 20% off a shower gel or body wash
  • 100 points when you buy two or more shampoo or conditioner products

What if I don't have a smartphone?

You can also use the Boots website* to select offers and load them to your Advantage Card. Just register or log-in to view your account and offers.

MSE Sarah M says:

The best thing about this deal is that the offers usually work on top of other in-store discounts. I got a £2 Nivea shower gel for 80p by using a '20% off' deal from the app on top of a half-price in-store offer.

Boots logoBoots 25 'free' prints (99p delivery)*New customers only

99p p&p

Register with Boots* via this link and you'll get your first 25 6"x4" prints free. Delivery's 99p.

As Snapfish, Boots and Truprint are part of the District Photo network, signing up to one means you'll hold an account with them all. This means you can only take advantage of the free prints offers for new customers at EITHER Boots, Truprint or Snapfish - not all.

Boots logoBoots 10 points (usually 4) per £1 for over-60s*Join the free Boots Health Club

Age 60+
Boots Advantage cardholders aged 60 or over can get 10 Advantage Card points per £1 spent (usually 4 per £1) on Boots branded products by signing up to Boots Health Club*.

Once registered, you'll be sent a printable voucher via email to show in-store, with your Advantage card, for the extra points.
MSE Charlotte says:

Each point's worth 1p when redeemed on virtually any Boots-branded product in-store at Boots, so this is effectively a 10% discount on Boots branded items. Don't assume Boots is always cheapest though, if you can buy items 10%+ cheaper elsewhere, go there instead. See full Boost Loyalty Points guide for more Boots tips.

Boots logoBoots: MoneySaving tips & tricks*Incl special promotions for Advantage Card holders

Ongoing

There are always ways to save money at Boots*, so even if there isn’t a cracking deal out there that works for you, don’t assume you can’t cut your costs.

Ways to save include:

  • Exclusive offers for Advantage Card customers. If you sign up to the Boots Advantage Card* it will allow you access to personalised coupons and discounts via the Boots app* (available on iOS and Android only), as well as let you know about promotional offers such as regular triple points events and competitions.

  • Coupons, cashback and freebies. Make sure you look out for coupons in store inside the free (to Advantage Card holders, £1 otherwise) Health & Beauty magazine*, or freebies attached to the magazine cover as well as coupons from the till, such as £5 off No 7. Also look out for coupons/freebies with products, such as around the neck of liquid soap bottles, or online for coupons and cashback to save on your shopping (see our regularly updated coupons list).

  • Check out similar retailers, eg, Superdrug. If you’re not committed to buying from Boots, check out our deals from Superdrug where they may have a better offer.

  • Had a problem with Boots? There’s a free online tool you can use to complain – it helps draft, manage and if necessary escalate your complaint. It’s offered by a firm called Resolver, which we like so much we work with it to help people get complaints justice – you can use it to complain to Boots*.

If you spot any hot deals out there we have missed (we are human after all!), please let us know in the MSE forum, email us at msedeals@moneysavingexpert.com or via MSE Facebook and Twitter @MSE_Deals .

Garnier logo50p off Garnier Nutrisse creme range*In-pack coupon for hair dye, can you find 'em?

Expired

If you're looking for hair dye, Garnier Nutrisse hair dye boxes come with a coupon inside on the instruction leaflet for 50p off when you buy any of the same range until Sat 31 Dec. 

Important: Make sure the box you pick up has the end date of 31 Dec 2016 on the coupon, as when we tested this in Superdrug we found there were still boxes containing coupons that expired in 2015.

Garnier Nutrisse creme hair dye is currently £4.50 in Boots*, so you'd pay £4 with the coupon.

Garnier logo£1.50 off Garnier Ultimate Blends shampoo*In-pack coupon for shampoo, can you find 'em?

If you're looking for shampoo, Garnier Nutrisse hair dye boxes come with a coupon inside on the instruction leaflet for £1.50 off when you buy Garnier Ultimate Blends shampoo 400ml until Sat 31 Dec.

No7 logoGet £38 of No7 beauty products for £12*Incl eyeliner, mascara, serum & lip crayon. Online & in stores

Expired

This is a corker. If you buy two selected No7 items you can get a free 'Little Bauble of Beauty' Christmas set containing eyeliner, mascara, serum and lip crayon online at Boots* or in store (find your nearest*) until Sat 24 Dec, subject to stock. Delivery's £3.50, or you can click & collect in store for free.

The offer's only valid on selected No7 products*, which you can view by going via the link above. As the cheapest combo of two No7 items included in the offer we found is £12 - two 10ml No7 nail polishes* at £6 each - and the set is worth £26, you’ll get about £38 of beauty products for £12.

The free No7 'Little Bauble of Beauty' set will be automatically added to your basket online, you’ll need to pick it up from the shelf and take it to the till in store. Here’s what you’ll get:

  • 'Protect & Perfect' serum, 5ml - worth £3.10 based on full-sized 50ml version.
  • 'Dramatic Lift' mascara, 4.5ml - worth £8.68 based on full-sized 7ml version.
  • 'Stay Perfect' liquid eyeliner in black, 1.7ml - norm £8.50.
  • Matte lip crayon in 'Raspberry', 1.3g - worth £6.12 based on full-sized 2.5g version.

MSE Rhiannon says:

This £38ish total value is one of the highest No7 freebie with purchase offers we've seen - it's well worth stocking up if you normally buy No7 for yourself or as gifts, but you may need to pay in separate transactions for the trick to work.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.
