I recently found myself in Boots Liffey Valley during one of their points events that they run coming up to Christmas. These events are a chance to boost your points and purchase great value Christmas gifts at the same time – unless you’re me and decide just to spoil yourself!! 😉
The offer during this event was that for each €60 spent you earned 1200 points (the equivalent to €12 to spend in store). If you spent €120 you earned 2400 points and so on.
I used this opportunity to pick up some pieces that I had been lusting after as I am buying very few presents this year.
As you can see I purchased:
Stila Smudge Pot in Kitten €17.50
Estée Lauder Doublewear Light (Shade 3 – for my makeup kit) €35
Two Models Own Nail Varnishes (Snowflake and Freak Out) €7.65 each – buy one, get one half price so €11.47
Real Techniques brushes – these were also on buy one, get one half price offer. Total came to €43.76.
Stippling brush x2 – €15.99 each
Face brush €13.29
Blush Brush €12.99
As I was so near to spending €120 at this point I decided to add a few bits to make sure I got the maximum number of points. I added some diet coke, toothpaste, toothbrush travel case and some rechargable batteries! Next time I think I will be more organised and have a list of things that I use on a regular basis that I can purchase!
Have you attended any of these points events? What do you spend your accumulated points on? I have a good amount built up at this stage so I will probably use them when the January sales come!
