NOW ENDED: Trick to get £116 of No7 beauty for £30 online by cleverly stacking deals at Boots

MSE Update, Wed 17 Feb at 11.22am: This trick has been very popular and a key element of it – the 'Shimmer All Night' set – has now sold out, which sadly means it's no longer possible to get £116 of No7 for £30. You can now get £40 of No7 beauty for £12 online, plus delivery – it's not as strong a deal, but still decent, and is significantly cheaper.

We've left the original trick below for reference as you may still want to use some of the other offers...

Here's a trick to bag a huge £116 of No7 beauty products for just £30 by stacking deals and a 'free gift' offer – you'll only be able to do this full trick online but it is possible to still get £28 of No7 for £12 in-store. Boots says it has decent stock, but these deals are incredibly popular with MoneySavers and usually go quickly, so don't hang about if you want to do this.

Deals stacking can be a little complex, so I'll run you through it step-by-step. Of course, you can pick different items in the offers if they're what you'd usually buy, just be sure they're valid for each element of the deals stack.

NOW ENDED: How to get £116 of No7 for £30

1) Add two £10 No7 'Shimmer All Night' palettes to get a 'free gift'. This is a trick in its own right where you get a free No7 set with £16 of contents when you buy two or more eligible items from this selection of No7 make-up products* – and to get the biggest saving, choose two of the 'Shimmer All Night' set* of palettes which are reduced to £10 each, and each have contents Boots reckons would normally cost £35. Boots told us stock of these is "good", but it's still limited so it's worth going quickly if you want them.

2) The 'free gift' is a 'Hydrate and Glow set' (with £16 of beauty items). After following the step above, the 'free gift' should be automatically added to your basket, dependent on stock. The 'Hydrate and Glow'* set includes eye masks, hydrating creams, and a coupon for £7 off any No7 product in Boots stores from 15 Mar-16 May. You can stop here if you'd like, and get £86 of No7 for £20 (plus £3.50 delivery or free click & collect). But don't 'lash' out if you want more, as we can do better than that...

3) Add another £20 of 3for2 items (a good deal in its own right) to your basket, which also triggers a £10-off voucher. In order to get the voucher, your basket needs to be £40 or more, but the good news is you can pick items in the 3for2 on No7 skincare* deal and they should stack with the £10 offer below. The easiest way is to pick THREE £10 items, eg, the Instant Results nourishing hydration mask*, plus Radiant Results revitalising hot cloth cleanser*, and Essential moisture day fluid*Your running total is now £116 of No7 for £40.

4) Get £10 off your £40 basket. The £10 off a £40 spend on No7 at the online checkout should come off automatically without a code when you've applicable basket contents – that's almost all No7 beauty products excluding gift sets, mirrors or charity bundles – until 11.59pm on Tue 9 MarEt voila! You've still got £116 of No7 but we've knocked a tenner off the cost, giving you all that make-up for just £30. Plus, as you've hit the £30 threshold for free delivery, you'll not have to pay for that either. See below for what your online basket should look like at this point.

Boost your No7 stash by spending your £7 off No7 voucher in store from 15 Mar

The free Hydrate and Glow set comes with a voucher inside it that you can exchange for your choice of No7 make-up (not skincare) in a Boots store with no minimum spend FROM Mon 15 Mar until Sat 16 May. As you've got to go to a store at a later date to spend the voucher, we haven't included it in our total, but do this extra bit and it's a nice bonus.

  • What if I don't want to spend £30, or want to shop in a store instead?

    If you don't want to spend £30, here's how to get £40 of No7 for £12, plus delivery

    If shopping online, here's how to stack the 'Hydrate and Glow'* freebie offer with half-price No7 to maximise your savings if you don't want to spend £30, or if items in the above steps sell out.

    Choose two No7 products via a special link to get the Hydrate and Glow 'free gift'. Include at least two from this selection of No7 make-up products*. The best combo I found to get the freebie is two £6 mascaras* which are normally £12 each. Get those two products and you've got £40 of No7 for £12, including the 'Hydrate and Glow' freebie with £16 of contents. Delivery's £3.50, or you can collect in a Boots store for £1.50.

    Shopping in store instead? You can get £28 of No7 for £12

    Make sure there's stock of the Hydrate and Glow freebie as you'll have to physically pick it up from the No7 make-up stand, and then pick up two £6 nail polishes. So you'll get £28 of No7 for £12 this way – still a decent saving. As a bonus, the 'free gift' set has a £7 No7 voucher inside, valid on No7 make-up (not skincare) which you can spend in a Boots store with no minimum spend from Mon 15 Mar till Sat 16 May.

    Remember, only pick this up if you were planning to shop for essentials in a Boots store anyway  don't make a special trip, and be sure to follow all in-store coronavirus measures.
