Considered one of the high street’s best value loyalty cards by those in the know, the Boots Advantage Card is a great way to save money every time you shop. There’s a reason why 15.9 million people in the UK are members – Boots offers one of the best reward schemes around.

By collecting loyalty points with every Boots purchase, you can enjoy major savings on thousands of items, from Liz Earle beauty products and Soltan sun care to baby clothes. Your Advantage Card even gets you 10% off selected own-brand products, including Boots Collagen Day Cream, health and wellness essentials and the Boots Everyday range.

And if you’re over 60, you can enjoy even more perks with Boots’ Over 60s Rewards Scheme. Sign up today to earn eight points for every £1 you spend on Boots’ and selected exclusive brands, get VIP access to in-store events and much more. Read on to find out about this amazing rewards scheme and how to start saving money today.


Boots Advantage Card benefits for over 60s

One of the best perks of the scheme is that you get a whopping eight points for every £1 you spend, compared with three points per pound for regular members. So it’s well worth signing up – over double the points means double the perks on selected exclusive brands, including No.7, Liz Earle, Joules, Champneys and Botanics*.

Advantage Card holders also benefit from Boots Price Advantage – another money-saving perk where you get exclusive lower prices on products every month (just keep your eyes out for products marked Price Advantage in pink). And you’ll still be collecting points as you shop.

If you’re due a hearing test, booking a free Hearing Health Check at Boots Hearingcare means you’ll also be rewarded with a bonus 300 points. Need an eye test or new glasses, too? Customers over the age of 60 also enjoy 10% off at Boots Opticians.

Spending your points

As your loyalty points add up, you can use them instead of cash next time you shop at Boots, save them up for a big shop, special gift or just a nice treat for yourself. Don’t forget that when using your points, you need to have enough to cover the total of your purchase.

Sometimes it’s hard to keep a track of what you’ve earned and what you’ve spent, so if you want to check how many points you’ve got on your card, there are a few ways to find out. Either ask a friendly cashier to check while you’re in store, or you can log into your account on your computer or the app on your phone to find out.

How to join the Over 60s Rewards Scheme

If you don’t have an Advantage Card yet, you can register for one by popping in store or going online, and then sign up directly to the Over 60s Rewards Scheme (either online again, or in your local Boots store).

If you’re already a loyalty card holder, then simply sign up to the scheme in Boots or online to start collecting points and enjoy major offers on all your favourite brands. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for special points events for an extra boost.

If you’re handy with an app, then you could try downloading the Boots app on to your phone. This makes it easy to see your personalised offers, and you can also use it to do your shopping, order prescriptions and medicines and be the first to hear about exclusive members-only events for loyalty card holders.

There’s a lot to love about Boots Advantage Card so it you haven’t already, sign up today – and if you do already have one, make sure you’re taking advantage of the Over 60s Rewards Scheme. *Terms & conditions apply. Visit boots.com/advantage-card for full details and T&Cs.
