This year I'm hoping to take more advantage of store loyalty schemes. I applied for several over the Christmas period and the first to arrive was my Boots advantage card.
The card arrived with a welcome voucher offering a 100 point boost (worth £1) with my first purchase.
I originally planned to buy the cheapest item I could find, a packet of paracetamol for 25p.
But I noticed an offer on the Boots app offering 75 points with a purchase of shampoo or conditioner.
Boots own brand shampoo costs 75p so by using the two offers together my shampoo gave me £1.75 in store credit.
Once I paid at the till I passed a clearance trolley which was annoyingly the wrong side of the tills to spot and browse while queuing. I guess that may be the point.
I noticed there was a handful of kinder joy eggs reduced to 10p as they were the Christmas branded ones. I picked up 3 as a little treat for the children. At the till the cashier said they were 50% off marked price as part of their Christmas promotion.
I went back and picked up 9 More!
These things can make a long car journey or waiting room wait a lot easier to handle. Definitely worth 5p each.
I'm going to pop back tomorrow and see what else has been added to the trolley.
I don't usually shop in boots but I may be converted!
