how to avoid losing your advantage card points

Boots Advantage Card customers who haven't used their card in the last 12 months have until the 20th June to use it, otherwise, they risk losing all of their Advantage card points. Previously, Advantage Card holders' points would be removed from an unused card after 2 years but from Monday 20th June this is being reduced to 1 year.

To avoid losing your points you need to use your Advantage Card or redeem your points in-store or online before 20th June. If you have used your Boots Advantage Card in the last 12 months, you needn't worry as your points will be unaffected.

Boots has sent an email to all customers, reminding those that haven't used the card in the last 12 months that their points are at risk and may expire if they do not take action.

What is a Boots Advantage Card?

A Boots Advantage Card is a Boots reward scheme where you earn points as you spend as well as gain access to exclusive Advantage Card discounts. With every £1 you spend online or in-store you earn 4 Boots Advantage Card points which can later be redeemed towards purchases.

The Boots Advantage Card points must cover the full purchase amount - you cannot pay with half of your points and make up the difference with cash.

With a Boots Advantage Card you can also benefit from additional savings and rewards such as annual birthday treats, Parenting Club benefits and Over 60s Rewards. If you are a student you can also get a 10% discount on Boots purchases.

Additionally, you can benefit from Boots Price Advantage when shopping online or in-store. Each month, select items are at a specially discounted price for Boots Advantage Card holders and the items are easily identified by a pink 'Price Advantage' label. You can also earn Advantage Card points on these purchases in addition to the lower price.
