Today we are going to cover all things Boots Advantage Card. If you’re reading this you probably already have an advantage card. It’s common knowledge that Boot’s reward programme is one of the best in the entire market, rivalled only by Tesco’s. With over 18 million members in the UK the scheme is massive – and is clearly working. So, in this article we are going to cover everything you need to know about the loyalty programme, specifically how to get the most out of your card. We’re even going to cover how to update address with Boots.
How Does The Boots Advantage Card Work?
Before we jump-in, let’s remind ourselves how the Boots Advantage card works. The Boots Advantage Card encourages shoppers to buy items from in store which provides the user with points. These points can then be used in store or online to unlock exclusive offers and discounts on products. Unlike other cards, you can’t part-pay with your Boots card – meaning you can’t spend 500 points and £5 to buy a £10 product.
The Boots card enables you to claim 4 points for every £1 that you spend in store. Each point is worth 1p, so you will have £1 worth of points for every £25 you spend.
How to maximise the value of your Boots Advantage Card
This may surprise you to learn, but the average person has over £12 worth of unused points. Therefore, there is no better time to look at your points and how to get the most out of them. One of the best ways to maximise the utility of your points is to wait for triple points. Boots will quite often hold triple points events both online and in store. If you take advantage of these events you will effectively rack-up 12 points for every 1p you spend. That’s equivalent to a 12% discount in store – not bad!
Another key message is to not ignore emails from Boots. They will often contain exclusive offers and discounts in them that are better than ‘the standard’ programme which you normally engage with. Furthermore, be sure to download and use the app. With the Boots app you can actually receive personalised offers based on your previous purchases – smart stuff!
Changing Address with Boots
If you’re moving home and don’t update your address with boots you run the risk of losing your points and offers. All of your points and communications may go to your previous address, meaning someone else may end-up with your hard-earned points. You can update Boots via their app, or use an online moving home platform in which you can tell Boots and everyone else that you’ve moved home.
