Boots Advantage Card
Disadvantages: you have to spend quite a lot of money
Unlike other loyalty cards, Boots advantage card allows children as young as 11 years old to have one. This clever ploy to guarantee loyal shoppers worked for me! I got one years ago, and although it is only now that I use it more, beeing able to have one in my little purse made me feel quite grown up at the time.
ORGAN DONOR REGISTER:
As far as I am aware no other loyalty card is quite like this one. For starters, when you sign up for one you get a temporary one to use until your plastic one arrives. This means that you can start saving points instantly. A great point to remember is also that when you sign up, you have the option to join the NHS Organ Donor register. Therefor it is like two forms in one, and if you chose to put your name forward for the register, then you have a logo printed onto your advantage card especially.
For every £1 spent in boots on any of their products, you get 4 points on your advantage card. Each point is worth a penny. Although it doesn't sound very much, it's always usful to have the odd pound on your card on the off chance you really need to buy a drink of water etc and have no cash. You can also get the same amount of points if you buy online.
ADVANTAGE CARD MACHINE:
A good point to recommened is to use the advantage card machine! It is my best kept secret! I don't know anyone that used the machine until I showed them the benefits! For example, I went to Boots to buy a meal deal (a sandwich, drink and snack for £2.99) and checked the machine first... On the 'My Offers' page was a coupon giving me 50 extra points if I bought a meal deal! Extra 50p on the card, so I wasn't complaining! There are so many offers always running that it is always worth checking before you pay.
This Christmas, Boot's are offering over £100 worht of offers via their advantage card machines, offers that you won't find anywhere else in store. So check it out!
Here are some of the offers running via the machine at the moment, that are available to everyone (you get itemised offers as well according to what you buy the most etc)

Another advantage to the advantage card is that you get regular customer mailings. These include money off your favorite products and brands, the opportunity for double points and also notices of upcoming offers that might interest you.
