  • How can I spend my Advantage card points online?

    When shopping online, all redeemable items will show the price in points as well as the price in pounds. The products you select in your shopping basket must be paid for using a single tender type, either points or cash. You can add items to the "Purchase Later"area if you have unredeemable products, not enough points, or want to pay by another method. Items will stay in the "Purchase later" area until they are purchased or deleted.

    Paying on using Boots Advantage Card points is subject to the standard Terms and Conditions of the Boots Advantage Card scheme. Points cannot be redeemed against prescriptions items, infant milks (up to 6 months), giftcards/vouchers, postage stamps, mobile phone top-up cards, Boots Opticians, Boots Hearing Care, Travel Services, and Boots Insurance. Furthermore, gift boxing is not an option when using this payment method as points can only be used to pay for items and products. Gift boxing is an additional service and therefore not redeemable with points.

  • What is the policy on price matching?

    We do not currently price match against other retailers because we're working hard to give you great value for money through the very best combination of quality and price. A very important way that we do this is by offering the UK's most generous loyalty card, with our Boots Advantage Card giving back the equivalent of 4p for every £1 spent on almost every item, often rising to 8p per £1 during some promotional periods. We believe this adds up to some fantastic value.
