Boots Advantage cardholders have until June 20, 2022 to ensure they retain any points they have earned over the past year to redeem in-store.

If your card has been used within the last year, your points are safe.

If not, you will need to visit a Boots store or go online boots.com and use your ard before June 20th.

To keep your points, you must use your card at least once a year, every year. If you do not use your card for more than four years, your account will be closed.

Has Boots always had this rule?

Boots Advantage cardholders previously had to ensure they scanned their card every two years to keep their points valid.

In an email to customers explaining the change, Boots said, “Thank you for being one of our valued Boots Advantage Card members. While this does not affect you as a regular boat buyer, we need to let you know that we are updating our Boots Advantage Card Terms and Conditions.

“Effective June 20, 2022, we will be removing Boots Advantage Card points from accounts that have not been used for a year, instead of the current two-year period. As long as you shop with your Boots Advantage Card at least once a year, your points are always available.”

How does the boat card system work?

The Boots loyalty card, known as the Advantage Card, is one of the more generous loyalty cards on the market.

Cardholders earn four Rewards points for every £1 spent in store or online. Each point is worth around 1p and can be redeemed in-store and online.
