#2
Was just about to post this. Knew I shouldn't have had my lunch first!!!

#3
is this going to be on line as well?

When you peel the sticker inviting you to the Customer Evening, the letter states that the offer of £12 worth of points when you spend £50 or more is also available on boots.com on the 28th / 29th October 2009. More details can be found at found at [url]www.boots.com/xmasevents[/url].

The above quote suggests yes :)

Usually you can't use any vouchers or coupons on the night but most SA's will scan them anyway! Just to point out though, if you have double points coupons it will be double your usual points and not the bonus ones.

Also, Just want to make sure that when you are working out if this makes things a bargain or not, you take into consideration that 1200 points does not equate to a 24% saving. The maths is that you will be spending 62.00 and getting 12.00 free because you have spent the original 50 and then the 12 pounds of points. I don't have time to work it out right now but I think this is around 19.5% saving.

Any more q's just let me know :)

My son has just rung me to say he used both the 150 points (for a £20+ spend) and double points- got 382 points for a £29.50 spend!:thumbsup:
#9
do you have to be invited to these evenings or can anyone go.
#10
Anyone can go, I went a few years ago with my sister, but she couldn't get half the things she wanted for the kids christmas, typical! If there are big toys you want on three for 2 you would probably have to order them but not sure how thata works with payment, etc?
#11
states on double points coupon " can't be used in conjunction with storewide points event"

you also have to watch the fact that alot of the branded toys are marked up at rrp and most of them are available much cheaper from other retailers, so the saving doesn't always add up to much on toys.
#12
umm, how do you get double points coupons ?
#13
Has anyone got a link for finding out when and where these evenings are?

The link above takes me to the Boots website which tells me that there are Boots Christmas Events on... but not where and when.

There's a link on their page too, but it just takes you to the normal store locator, which again doesn't tell me when the events are on.

Assuming you have a boots advantage card, the coupons are sent to you in the post... but I guess if you are effected by the postal strikes you may or may not get them! doh!

Not sure I understand your logic here? you pay £50 for goods and they basically give you £12 worth of vouchers to spend in store... so it is just simply a 24% saving surely ??

The surface of the Sun is called photosphere . Temperature at photosphere is around 5800 K (deduct 273 from it get the celsius temperature).
However, there are some comparetively cooler regions on the surface of the Sun. They are called "Sunspots". The temperature of Sunspots are about 3800 K.

There are also some overheated streams of gas ejecting out of Sun into the space. They have over million degrees of Kelvin temperature. These streams of gas form the Corona around the Sun. The corona can only be seen during a solar eclipse.

Gotta love google!:p

I've just asked my mate and he said...:whistling:

[INDENT]"The sun is 4.6 billion years old. It is largely composed of hydrogen and helium. The sun is about 110 times bigger than the earth. It has many layers. The surface of the sun is called the photosphere. Its density is from one-millionth, to one ten millionth as dense as water. The photosphere gives off the sun's energy in forms of heat and light. Most of the sunlight we see is from its pebbly surface. The photosphere is 340 miles thick and it's [COLOR="Red"]temperature s range from 5,500 °C to 6,000 °C[/COLOR]. It has dark spots called sunspots which are the only solar activity observable by the naked eye."[/INDENT]

He's a bit of a geek but good at pub quizes ;-)

Usually when something is half price in Boots and on 3-4-2.... it works out even cheaper as they generally give you half off the free one too! So, would be.... £35.00 for 3!

Firstly, they award points to your advantage card, not give you vouchers just to let you know :)

Lets say you have spent your 12 pounds in points and the original 50 pounds to get the points. That is 62 pounds in total, 12 pounds were free. SO you are getting 12 pounds free of product for every 62 you spend which is about 19% not 24%.

Hope that makes sense now :santa:

Its not there yet, but I would assume that at some point a couple of check boxes will appear under 'Find additional store services' to allow you to search for stores having shopping evenings on each date.

I think the valid point pinkladymel is trying to make is that you are not saving anything on the initial £50 you spend, as you are forced to spend an additional £12 instore to benefit from the promotion (effectively). So think of it like the cdiscount account credit...you're not actually saving there and then, but will save in the future, so see it as getting extra stuff free, not getting money back.

Of course this is only of any relevance if you insist on putting a percentage to things :)
#32
Just to point out as well, the 1200 points quoted will, as far as I'm aware, be made up of the 200pts you would normally earn on a £50 spend, plus an extra 1000pts.

i.e. the offer doesn't say EXTRA 1200pts, its 1200pts IN TOTAL, so factor that into your calculations.

Keeping that in mind, if you are allowed to use your double points coupon, it will double that first 200pts (but as previously pointed out, it is clearly stated on the voucher that it is not valid on such occasions, so if the SA says no, you don't have a leg to stand on...being NICE and CHEERFUL usually helps though)
