Advantages: Money back as points on a card which can be redeemed at any time.
Disadvantages: Not everything is covered.
I have had a Boots Advantage card for a couple of years and it is by far the best card, you really do get rewarded well, and un-like many other 'Advantage' cards you don't get coupons through the post, you just spend money and get money back, brilliant.
Being a mum and trusty housewife I am responsible for the majority of the household shopping, from groceries to nappies and have every possible reward card that is available. With most of the club cards your points are accumilated and you are sent money off coupons, on usually a quarterly basis. More often than not these coupons are put in my purse and quite frankly forgotten about (not such a trusty housewife there then !) Its only when I dig them out of my purse and realise that the expiry date is long gone and they are thrown in the bin.
With the Boots Advantage card your points just stack up and as long as you have enough points for the item you want to purchase you can do so. You don't get points for everything, its only goods that have an asterisk are eligible for points or can be redeemed. When I go to Boots, which is every week for baby food, nappies etc I slip my card into the machine and here is where you get your coupons. There is usually a coupon for 250 points when you spend over £25, and 500 points for over £50 (thats £5 back) Boots normally have a double points weekend every month and just last week I got an extra 500 points for some perfume I bought for my mum, plus 500 points as I spent over £50, thats an amazing £10 back on my card !!
If you don't have one already please get one, especially if you have a baby and are buying nappies and jars/packets of food.
It really is a reward card with REAL rewards.
