I have gave up on this sale now and done all the shopping I needed to elsewhere. Got men's sets reduced to £1.49 each at Superdrug and some other bits for really cheap. Bought the 1 set I had my eye on in boots for the 50% off which is fine. By them messing about with their sale they have missed out on what I usually spend there which is over £80 usually but they didn't have the perfume set I usually buy while at the sale so this year they got £4 off me instead of £80. Won't be going back now even if the sale starts next week. Saved me a fortune really
I can’t cope with a week of this. Up early dressed and ready to get to boots for 8. It’s like being a firefighter waiting for the bell to ring!

I agree although sometimes they bring out more stock when they do the 70% …I agree although sometimes they bring out more stock when they do the 70% - I remember seeing some items that I hadn't seen in the 50% sale! Just worth noting!



Yes, sometimes you see staff replenishing the shelves (at least it was that way when I was there circa 8.30am last year). Mercifully people were quite polite and there was no zoo-like behaviour.

The "other thread" about this is starting to make me cringe, so I think I'll just watch in stealth mode. You'd think this was the only sale in the world, ever.

I hate seeing people act all petulant and rude over something as frivolous as a sale. This time of year must be a nightmare for Boots staff.

I would hazard a guess to Wednesday however can be any day.Could even be Sat/Sun.
Can't see it being the weekend reason being kids are off and they will be out and about, that's why I'm thinking sometime during next week x

Yeah I'm thinking this weekend
Surely they wouldn’t do it on the weekend (I can imagine fights and overcrowding, bad enough in the week?)but they can’t leave it to long?

My feeling is Wednesday 23rd. That gives Boots one more weekend of sales at 50% off.

I'll watch the MSE thread with interest!

More likely to be a Friday as the last 2 years it’s been a Friday since the company was bought out, that’s when it all changed. It was on a Wednesday before but I don’t see why they would change it this year back to a Wednesday who knows though, just gotta keep checking!
Just popped in to say hello . Bumped into someone this morning who had queued at my local boots today , she said there were approx 50 disappointed customers waiting outside at 8am .

In terms of guessing prospective dates , I know that boots tries to have the sale on a day that they don’t start any other big promotions or the day they change offers. If anyone could confirm the offer change date that might narrow it down slightly .
Great thread thanks
In will be checking MSE and boots website early in mornings to see when the 50% sale dissapears. Could literally happen any day so no predicting can be done really.
It was my day off, so I thought I would go sales shopping anyway. When I got to Boots there were hoards of people waiting, once the store opened they magically vanished. poof. No idea where they went so I had a jolly old time on my own, leisurly lookign at all the lovely products. Have a wonderful time, no one pushing or stressing. Got some lovely pressies to put away - yes at 50 % off - still some great prices. I wont be able to go back when/if there are further reductions, I am pleased with my purchases.

Where did the other “info” come from, word of mouth, guesses by papers....does it matter? It was all a load of nonsense at end of day! If peeps have any sense they’ll follow MSE.However well done for all the hot votes, brilliant for a deal that was never a deal
Gave up on this years ago, usually only the things that people aren't really bothered about left in my local ones, most people take the 50% as they got fed up with all the 'when will the 70% Boots sale be'.

It came from MSE actually
It's not going to be the weekend. I was talking to the staff today. They said try next week. Probably not Monday either. I'm guessing Wednesday.
like this thread, gives me a clue which day to avoid going into town with all those people scratting over cheap wrapping paper - and big Soap & Glory boxes/Jack Wills scarf sets.

Oh so of all the info that came from MSE the only piece you didn’t edit into your posts was “Boots 70% off not tomorrow”you know the MSE article from yesterday evening
