Do you think the Boots sale will ever come back online?

I was away at Center Parcs this week so gave my sister a few things to order if the sale started so on the Wednesday I kept getting texts from her explaining what was (or more likely, wasn't) happening.

So anyway, since coming home I keep checking the website, along with 100's of others no doubt, and keep getting the sale update page saying the boots sale is temporarily unavailable. I'm just curious therefore as to whether people think it will come online at some point, or if this is Boots' way of avoiding the 75% off sale altogether which is personally what I think is happening.

Gutted as there's absolutely diddly squat in our local Boots unless you want Christmas wrapping paper, crackers or a HUGE Santa, which I don't!! Let me know what you all think and if there is any hope!!

i had an email off them after i complained & they say it will they just say it's been postponed...
"Thank you for contacting us about the 75% sale we put on our website on the 14th January. I am sorry to hear of the problems you've experienced.

We did expect our site to be busy when we decided to run the offer, but unfortunately on this date there was a severe error with our website and as a result this was taken down part way through the day in order to correct this. However, even after this was corrected the 75% sale was then not working correctly on all of the items.

In this regard the sale has been postponed online. There is no guaranteed date when this will be active again, however it will not be until this error has been corrected"

I think they will have shipped all the sale stuff to shops by now thus … I think they will have shipped all the sale stuff to shops by now thus emptying their warehouse for new season stock!I did manage to get some sale stuff from my local Boots on Wednesday.Their e-mail is down as well so the only way to complain about the web site is by phone or writing.


:? i only received the email from them yesterday afternoon & most of the stuff is still available to buy online at the full price at the moment so don't think they have sent to stores hun x:whistling:

This is what I usually do, as well as getting birthday and christmas presents for people as it looks like I've spent a lot more on them than I actually have!! Although for my two girls it just means they get a lot more presents so it's a shame it's not on, but your email does sound promising, I guess it's just a case of checking again like I have been doing for about 2 weeks now!! I don't know, what us women will do for a bargain!!

Im still waiting too!!! From what I understand from the email I received, it WILL be back online

No, I do not think the Boots sale will ever come back online.

I was giving it some thought earlier today whilst painting the car. I wondered to myself "Is the Boots sale ever going to come back online? I do hope so."

Afterwards I sat down with a cup of tea and quietly wept as the sadness crept upon me like a tear-filled goblin.

Perhaps one day, if we all pull together and really believe, perhaps then, in a brighter future, the Boot sale will come back online.

Here's to the future.

Here's to believing.

Here's to Boots.

I ordered once and got 3 loads delivered!

3 of the same. Although, it was all paid for.

I really hope it does but I don't think it will. They know it will crash again so maybe are trying to get their IT dept sorted out! Fingers crossed!

:cry:

Well sale is back again...............and guess what? Site crashed again!
I got an order placed around 3pm after 1-2 hours. The items I wanted were out of stock when I started but back in when I finished. I got the 2 items I really wanted. St Tropez and No7 Sets! Got confirmation number and email, so hopefully.

Site down at the moment!!!!

Sale has now finished due to 'lack of stock' - odd because they have lots of it at the full prices!!!
