The Boots Advantage card is one of the UK’s most popular store cards, allowing you to collect points with (nearly) every purchase you make in the popular shop.
There are approximately 18 million members who have an average of £12.50 of unused points, so you may be wondering how you can claim these points.
The Boots Advantage card encourages shoppers to spend money while also earning back points and when you have claimed enough points you can use these points to get discounts on your shopping bill.
Like may loyalty cards, you can collect points by shopping in-store or online.
You cannot part-pay with Boots Advantage Card points, so you’ll need the full amount of points for the product you choose.
One point is worth one penny to spend on products in store and online at boots.com.
For example, 199 points will pay for a product priced at £1.99.
The total price in points will then be deducted from your Boots Advantage Card balance.
To earn points from shopping online you can enter your Advantage card number on the basket page when you go to the online checkout of the Boots website.
In the scenario that you have you have forgotten your Boots Advantage Card in store, you can ask the cashier to validate your receipt when you make a purchase.
If a receipt is validated, you can bring it into any Boots store with your Boots Advantage Card and the points can be transferred from your receipt onto your card.
How do I use my Boots Advantage card points?
The easiest way to use your points is by spending them in the shop.
When you are paying at the checkout you just need to tell the cashier that you’d like to pay with your points.
For keen online shoppers, you can spend your points on boots.com by selecting the Boots Advantage Card icon once you checkout.

It must be noted that some products are exempt from earning points, like prescription and selected dispensary items, infant milks (up to six months), gift cards, plastic bag levy and Boots Insurance and Travel Services and Professional discount cards.
Furthermore, points are also not available on gift boxes, charitable merchandise and delivery charges for purchases made online.
Boots also say they will not exchange Boots Advantage Card points for cash and the offer is non-transferable
