Way back in 1849 John Boot established Boots, a herbal remedy store in Nottingham, England. In 1960, John Boot passed away and his son Jesse Boot, aged 10 helped his mother to run the family store. In 1920 Jesse sold the store to the American United Drug Company although their reign was shortlived because in 1933 Boots returned to British hands with the Grandson of founder, John Boot, at the head of the company. From there, Boots has continued to grow to the store that we know and love today. There is rarely a town that you can visit in the UK that does not boast its own Boots store on its high street.
Like most shops Boots have moved with the times and has its own online store where you can find all your favourites at the touch of a button. But Boots has now gone one step further by adding Boots Treat Street as an extension of the much-loved Boots Advantage Card. If you log on to www.boots.com/treatstreet you will find a host of big name brands where you can shop to your heart’s content, all the while earning yourself points on your Advantage Card. For every £1 you spend in stores such as Clarks, New Look, eBay, Waterstones and Thomas Cook to name a few, provided you entered their site through Treat Street you will earn at least one Boots Advantage point. With each point worth a penny to spend in store you’ll soon have enough points to buy a treat for you too.
It’s as simple as 1, 2, 3 . . .
1. Shop – Shop online with some great brands at www.boots.com/treatstreet
2. Collect – Collect at least one Advantage Point with your purchase
3. Treat Yourself – Treat yourself by spending your points in store at Boots
To get the ball rolling, throughout June you can spend less whilst collecting extra Advantage Points through Treat Street. How about an extra 20% off at New Look, Wallis and Joules? There’s £20 off if you spend £250 at Dixons or if you’re more of a bookworm that a tech-head then how about 40% off the top 100 paperbacks at Waterstones to keep you entertained by the pool. These offers are available until 3rd July so what are you waiting for?
If you don’t already have an Advantage Card, where have you been? Not to worry, you can apply online and choose to receive an instant Advantage Card number and a print out bar code so that you can start collecting 4 points for every £1 spent online or in store straight away. You can also apply in store by picking up an application form or you can sign up over the phone if you live in the UK, just call Boots Advantage Card team on 0845 124 4545.
