“misleading promotions”

Written on: 21/10/2017 by giHouston127 (1 review written)

I noticed today that the promotion Additional 1000 points when you spend £50 doesnt mean additional but means Instead of. All the advantage points i should have earned on a £52 spend were removed. This is misleading customers and should be made clearer. Rosie moore… Read Full Review

“No advantage with a Boots advantage card”

Written on: 08/02/2017 by TamiaBarnes (1 review written)

Miserable card - Boots Advantage Card Boots don't allow The accrued points to be used as part payment It has to be exact - a bit difficult if one had their eye on a more expensive item .... Keep collecting or take your custom to someone else who are more in tune with loyalty cards and bow they should be used. Take a look at Tesco points use them anytime as part payment and can double the value during offers. Very very bad for such a big high street chain… Read Full Review

“Boots' loyalty card - the 'disAdvantage' card!”

Written on: 08/01/2017

Time for Boots to rethink their 'loyalty' card: 1) Self serve till in Boots did not add any 'Advantage' points, despite selecting the 'Advantage Card' logo at the start of the transaction. Member of staff denied there was a problem and refused to help :( 2) I've just been sent 12 Advantage Card 'tokens' all with different terms and conditions - I don't have the time/space in my purse to carry these around on the off chance I might use them. Please Boots - just reduce your prices and I… Read Full Review

“useless”

Written on: 20/10/2016 by viMcCabe203 (1 review written)

what kind of ridiculous this advantage card is, you have to spend fortune to actually get any benefit. It is probably analysed and designed by some stupid marketing boss, who has no clue how marketing works. boots need to come up with better incentive scheme. It is obvious they don't care about the business because by nature they will do well. however they should stop misleading people by introducing advantage card with is worth rubbish… Read Full Review

“Spend or lose”

Written on: 01/06/2016 by MountainAga (1 review written)

When I lost/had my wallet stolen it took a long time to notify all the card companies. I forgot about my Boots Advantage card. Now I've got round to telling them and ordering a replacement I am told that I have forfeited all my points. Apparently it warns you in some obscure small print. It seems very uncharitable to me. I'm not impressed… Read Full Review

“Driving customers AWAY!”

Written on: 28/08/2015 by Reefcurl (1 review written)

If you ever manage to get past the registration system you are either a genius or just plain lucky. Bop opts have made it soooooo complicated, I spent an hour on it and gave up! Now if I were a retired non computer literate pensioner it might be understandable, but I'm a computer programmer! I really do not have time for companies who set out to make loyalty cards so difficult. I'm going elsewhere… Read Full Review

“So Irritating”

Written on: 26/08/2015 by 314Reynolds (1 review written)

What is the point of this card?? I have been battling with trying to spend my points and I really don't have time for it. I do my shopping online therefore I want to spend my points online (but they make it really difficult to use online even though many, if not most of us shop this way nowadays). After discovering you can't make a part payment with the points (who thought up that stupid restriction?) I have been trying to use it to buy a full price item online, it tells me I can, and asks me… Read Full Review

“Ridiculous Policy Preventing Part Payments”

Written on: 01/02/2015 by Dusty_321 (1 review written)

Could someone please explain Boots' policy of disallowing cash top-up payments with this card. I had £19 worth of points on the card but was told this morning I could not use the points to buy the perfume spray I wanted; as the price was £22 I was not be allowed to use my points in part payment - even though I offered to pay the £3 difference in cash. WHY??? I do not know of any other loyalty card which enforces such a ridiculous rule… Read Full Review

I have had a Boots Advantage card for years now and the points soon mount up and then you can get something for free. Not like the Nectar Card where you have to spend so much to get a decent amount of points… Read Full Review

“Most frustrating loyalty card”

Written on: 04/06/2014 by Derrick73 (1 review written)

This card is frustrating! The most annoying thing is that you can't use the points as part payment towards an expensive item which would be a real help. The other thing is that when you do decide to use it you find you can buy that item much cheaper elsewhere so you don't! In the end all you can do is use it for the few odd things you can't get anywhere else like No 7 makeup......but then I end up not doing that because you can't use your discount and double points coupons if you do, like I… Read Full Review

Yes - I could not agree with you more. I had £19 worth of points on the card but was told I could not buy the eau de toilette spray I wanted as the price was £22 and I would not be allowed to used my points in part payment and pay the £3 difference in cash. WHY???

I have now trisd 4 times online and by phone to register my temporary card to get the permanaent card. I allowed time to process but after 6 months I am still waiting. An assistant in Boots suggested i phone them up again on the 0845 number, should I give up? My time is more valauble than all of the points I will ever collect. I am far from stupid by the way and do know how to fill in details etc. BSc, MSc and university science lecturer!… Read Full Review

“Advantage, what advantage?”

Written on: 25/03/2014 by daphne44 (1 review written)

while the three for two offers can be good, you can often get these items cheaper elsewhere1 Also, the extra points coupons sent through the post are not very good for me.I live alone, am 72 so am hardly likely to be spending £25 or more to get 250points now am I!. so not advantage to me!… Read Full Review

“Just can't compete with other Loyalty Card Schemes”

Written on: 14/10/2013 by janesmith1975 (36 reviews written)

My purse is full of loyalty cards and I do think about which one I get the most benefit from when doing food shopping, or present shopping. I have had a Boots Advantage Card more many years but I just don't feel it offers enough to compete with the likes of Tesco and Sainsburys. Even the banks are now offering reward points for using your debit card and they seem to be more advantageous than the Advantage Card. I love their 3 for 2 offers they have all year round but when I'm ready to… Read Full Review

“part payment fiasco”

Written on: 24/11/2012

I was about to spend my points today on a Christmas gift in boots in Cork, Ireland. I only then discovered the point payment fiasco. No other loyalty card that I know of imposes this condition. Loyalty cards are an effort to retain customers but if I can buy an item for 2 cents(or pence)cheaper nearby I have my saving at once and I get the loyalty points from that store, if they operate one, so a double incentive not to buy at Boots. The item I wished to buy was cheaper else where but not if I… Read Full Review

“The best loyalty card created yet!”

Written on: 22/09/2012

The card has given me an incentive to go back to the store and not go to other places like Superdrug who sell similar items to Boots. I have had a few 'free' gifts from the card now which makes me want to go back and buy everything i need in their store… Read Full Review

“Great loyalty card”

Written on: 08/06/2012

Love this loyalty card, builds up points fast and it's great fun when you can essentially get an item for 'free' when paying with points! Don't know why some people are complaining about not being able to do part-payments. Just spend the points on something smaller, it all works out the same at the end of the day! The special offers kiosks are great as well, don't know anywhere else that does something like that and I've gotten lots of extra points and even free items from vouchers at the… Read Full Review
