As a long time lover of Boots beauty shopping, I was incredibly excited when they contacted me to say they've recently launched a new app that goes alongside their wonderful advantage card to bring Boots customers even more amazing offers than before. They'll still be sending their vouchers through the post throughout the year but now you can get even more great deals with the click of a button - there's everything from personalised offers based on your spending habits and updates on the best current deals they have on offer. You can also shop directly from the app which makes life a lot easier as its very easy to navigate.
Another thing I LOVE about this new app is the fact is shows you how much money you have stored on your advantage card. Before this app it was always a bit of a struggle to work out how much was actually on there and the only time I ever really knew was when I bought something in store and checked the receipt afterwards.
Here's a little collage of what you can expect the app to look like. Pretty cool isn't it?!
After telling me all about their amazing new app, Boots said they would send me a voucher so I could put it to use and see how much money I could save using the various offers available. I was obviously more than willing to get stuck into the challenge and when my voucher arrived in the post, I was straight to Boots like a woman possessed, pursing all the lovely makeup counters and having great difficulty in deciding what I wanted to buy. Seriously, I could spend thousands in that place.
So as you can see from the photo at the top of this post, I got quite a lot of new things. I'm not going to talk about them all in greath length or I'd be here all day and this post is more to discuss the new app would be epicly long so I thought I'd just pop a list of the things I bought below with links in case you want to check them out yourself. I'll be doing full reviews of them all very soon too so keep your eyes peeled!

In total I spent £125.38 but with all the apps, I got it all for £100 which is how much I had to spend on my voucher. Now although most people, myself included, could never go and spend £100 in one go, if you were to spend a similar amount over the course of a month or two, you could be saving yourself a fair amount of money as well as gaining lots of extra advantage card points. Before I began this little experiment, I had about £2 on my Boots card (it was a brand new card as I lost my old one) but now I have almost £10 thanks to all the offers featured on the app like ‘double points when spending over £20 in one transaction’ and various others. Points do build up quite quickly if you’re a regular Boots shopper and I intend to not spend a penny of mine until Christmas when I’ll be stocking up on their 3 for 2 gifts! Does anyone else do that?
Will you be downloading the new Boots App? Have you tried any of the products I bought?
