Advantages builds up quickly, most rewarding in UK, get exclusive offers
I got my Advantage card about 2 years ago after my friends persuading me to get one, it is not that I didn't want one, it is just that I couldn't be bothered to fill out the form post it off / hand it in and wait for it to arrive - lazy I know!After completing my form, the card took around 4 weeks or so to come through the post, though in the mean time you are handed a cardboard version of the Advantage card which you can collect your points on whilst you are waiting and then a couple of weeks after you recieve your plastic one, the points are then transferred.
The Boots Advantage card is (Apparently) the most rewarding card in the UK with 4 points per every pound you spend, which each one point being equivalent to 1p, so you basically get 4p back per every pound.The Card itself can be used on most things throughout the store, except for a very few which I think include stamps and photos. This means that you are effectivley getting a form of cashback with each purchase instore. The majority of items instore enable you to collect Advantage crd points and there are also lots of offers on for Advantage Card Holders, for example if you spend over £15 instore you could recieve an extra 300 points on your card.
Also you can pop your card into one of the Boots advantage card points and it will give you offers depedant on what you buy instore, therefore will vary from person to person.
For example say you always (or often) buy a mascara then you may pop your card into one of these and it may come up with an offer for this saying £1 off or even 200 points (or more or less) when buying this item! Sometimes these offers seem to be the same from week to week and some are valid to all advantage card holders, meaning they may not be used by all of you.
Your points also build up, very quickly, and are great for using on birthday presents or christmas shopping, I currently have around £56 on mine and I am saving it for christmas! Though, this is most likely because I shop in Boots fairly reguarly and if you do not shop their in a regualr basis it may take a while for you to build you your points. Boots also price their items a little higher than some supermarkets or the likes of Superdrug and therefore, you may see the card as not really giving you a great saving/ offer.You can only purchase items from Boots with the points, so again if you do not shop their often it may not be suited to you. In the same way as you collect the points, their are also certain items you cannot spend the points on, such as gift vouchers and stamps.
