50 Free Prints From Boots
Member Name: Charlottie7
Advantages: Fab prints and great fast service
Disadvantages: Choosing from your photos!
Wow I have to say I'm very impressed with the service I have received from bootsphoto (In association with photobox).
I registered via boots and got sent an offer for 50 (yes that is correct) free standard size prints, I just had to pay the p&p which i was nicely surprised was only £1.50, I thought it would be a lot more than this.
Signing up and uploading my pictures:
Signing up was easy and I believe you collect advantage card points with your ordered too, so this is another bonus.
Uploading my pictures did take time but I think this is due to my slow internet connection so I would recommend a good broadband connection (which I am guessing is not a problem for most).
I use Google chrome as my web browser and this uses a Java application which means it brings up all my files to the screen so you can browse through and pick your pictures to add to an online album. It even has a hand magnifying glass at the bottom of every picture so you can enlarge it and check it is the right pictures.
Once you have uploaded all your pictures ordering did not take me long for my standard prints and you can see if the picture fits within the size you have picked, if it doesn't it's easy to change and add or remove photos. It even tells you the quality of the picture and you can have a look.
You can pay by all major cards (except solo, which is a little disappointing) you can also pay by paypal which is a nice little bonus too.
I was sent an email to say my order hand been received and another saying they had been dispatched. The emails also contained more offers for me to use.
Postage and delivery:
As I mentioned before delivery was only £1.50 and you can upgrade your postage if you wish. Saying this I think the royal mail first class service they use was more than adequate. As i order my prints in the morning they were posted the same day and I got them the next, and they had warned it may take longer as it was offer (but I didn't see any evidence of this).
They came in a envelope which was of adequate size which said, "do not bend." I found this adequate and not overly packaged.
The pictures arrive and were very good quality which you would expect from boots and they certainly delivered. If I wanted photos as a present I would defiantly order form here again instead of somewhere like snapfish(as the prints were not as good quality).
The cost is a little higher than some other sites but the service and quality defiantly compensate for this.
Overall my experience was great and I would look out for offers to get it a little cheaper. I think if you sign up to boots photo and opt in for the news letter you may still get this offer and I'm sure they will run similar ones again.
Well done Boots!
Summary: Nice surprise from Boots :)
