Found 4th Jun 2010Made hot 4th Jun 2010
Purchased Boots Antihistamine tablets 30pk over the counter and they were on BOGOF offer, so 60 tablets for £2.99.

However, it ALSO applied a multisave offer to it of -£2.99 meaning that the Total came to £0.00.

I was buying 4 packets and the total came to £0.00!!!!

This will only work if you purchase other items so that they are "hidden" within your shopping....

Obviously if your store has self checkout scan it via that, else, the cashier might notice :thumbsup:

Loratadine is the brand, its mixed with pseudoephedrine, a decongestant, these will treat allergy just as good.

CRAP!!! Loratadine is a totally different drug, I am a pharmacist. Loratadine is a drug in itself and does not contain any pseudoephedrine which is used, mainly, for colds and will not help hayfever whatsoever.

I use Zirtek, but i also have loraditine at home. I use zirtek for itchy skin, one every few days and that keeps the hayfever at bay too. Can anyone tell me exactly what loraditine is supposed to be for, maybe i can switch. The loraditine that we have is in a red packet if that helps.

I've always been a zirtek user - only ones that ever really worked for me - but this year they are barely touching it I'm suffering like mad /sigh

Tried every allergy tablet and these seem to be the only thing that works for me so will definitely try this tomorrow. Do you have to pay at pharmacy or could I ask for them and pay at self-scan?

Me too trying all sorts this yr, suffering badly!! Normally use clarityn, nasal spray, eye drops nowt touching it this yr, just trying something from a health shop called New Era, on advice from a friend, 5.00 ish for hundreds, seems to dry it up immeadiatley, may be worth a try, i would pay anything not to suffer from hay fever!!
UPDATE
they have these on the boots website and 3 for 2 at moment 4.99 New Era Hayfever & Allergic Rhinitis
Product code 2542897 - New Era Hayfever & Allergic Rhinitis a homoeopathically prepared biochemic remedy.

I used to use Clarityn every day for years - and then my doctor perscribed steroid nasal spray. After a couple of weeks use or so, my hayfever disappeared more or less permenantly. Just thought this may be an alternative for some of the sufferers here!

These contain chlorphenamine (also known as Piriton). This is an older anti-histamine than can cause drowsiness. The newer anti-histamines e.g. loratadine (e.g. Clarityn) and cetirizine (e.g. Zirtek) are classed as non-sedating (although rarely they do make people drowsy).

There isn't much difference between loratidine and cetirizine - both have the advantage of being once a day treatments. You can get packs of 14 for about £1 if you go for the non-branded e.g. Tesco's own, etc.

I'm a doctor and personally wouldn't recommend chlorphenamine for regular use even though they are cheaper. If you have severe symptoms there are other drugs such as steroid nose sprays that are very effective but are only available on prescription.

I've not voted but with these kind of things you shouldn't buy branded items like this. I buy the cheap value packets for 99p, if the have the same active ingredient as this then they are the exact same thing. My wife is a nurse and she goes mental at me when I used to buy these or branded paracetamol, value packets seriously are the EXACT same things as these, don't waste your money.

Yeah, your unbranded 99p packs are obviously a better deal than these unbranded free ones. The missus must be proud... :whistling:

Thanks OP - will try this later.

Just bought 60 unbranded Loratadine tablets from an online pharmacy for £3.75 incl. shipping.
I was always wary about buying whatever has "hayfever relief" on it as I had a horrible experience with cheap Boots one. Then I tried Clarityn and it worked a treat.
I guess Loratadine works for me.

Zirtek is just Cetirizine.

There are plenty of sites that sell Cetirizine for around less than a pound for 30. Save your money and ditch brand names. Here - 30p for 30 - same drug as Zirtek.

Anyway, the 'deal'...it's not really a 'deal', is it? I quite like Boots so I'll refrain from using this scam. I'll just pay my 30p and have a clear(er) conscience.

I scr*wed up and bought four packs of 14 instead of the packs of 30. For some reason the 14 packs are more expensive than the 30s (though they're on bogof at £3.99).
I put them in with a few other things (that I didn't really want but will use eventually - indigestion tablets & sticky plasters)... so I ended up paying £14 for a handful of stuff I didn't want or need.
Like an idiot, I didn't want to make a fuss and walked out with them. :oops:


Still a brilliant deal - just don't screw it up like I did, folks!

Just neck some paracetamol, job's a good un.

Just tried buying 2 packs in boots scarborough (boots own brand antihistamine 30pack) and only the bogof kicked in

Ofcourse, I just walked away without buying =)

So, either local glitch, or already expired?
