Boots Advantage Card

Attention all students, you need to take advantage of the Boots Advantage Card! Why? Because the Boots Advantage Card effectively means you get little discounts every time you use it either in-store or shopping online at

Boots are bargain-friendly and have a loyalty card that’s worth holding onto; a rare commodity amongst a wallet full of dusty and curling paper cards that get you one free coffee after buying ten. Instead, Boots Advantage Card points add up to equal cash to spend in-store and on pretty much anything. Providing you remember your Boots Advantage Card at point-of-purchase (including online), points will accumulate on all purchases and build up with no expiry date. If you don’t have your card on you, your receipt can be validated for future use (just don’t lose it!) and there are often promotional events in-store and online that offer extra points on certain purchases.

You also get personalised offers, which is a fantastic bonus through the Advantage Card (you’ll need student id). And did we mention it was free? Seriously, if there is one thing you do today, go and sign up for the Boots Advantage Card, you won’t regret the savings online and in a Boots store! You will need to show student ID to link up these savings with your Boots Advantage card.
