Quick Tips #1

I thought I might start a series (don't expect it to be at set times or anything as I will forget!) called Quick Tips just to share with you a few tips that I love to use. Let me know what you think of this idea :)?

Boots currently have 3 for 2 across Beauty. I went instore today knowing I wanted to get a few things and was quite restrained for once! If you are picking up a few bits in the 3 for 2 then make sure you pay in the way where you will get the best items free!

For example I seperate my items into three's by price. Today I picked up the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum, two Real Technique's brushes, two eyeliners and a lipstick. By grouping together the foundation and brushes and paying for them in one transaction I got one of the brushes for free! I then paud for the other three items and got an eyeliner for free. If you do it this way you will save much more money than paying all together and just getting the cheapest items free. It's easier to do this at a self service till but there is no reason why an assistant wouldn't let you do this at a till :)

Do you do this with offers? 


  1. Great tip! I never think about this until it's too late, I need to write it across my Advantage card or something so I remember haha.

    Jesss xo

  2. Oh my, I looove these offers! When I was in London I saw them everywhere and I couldn't believe it because in Germany, there just aren't any offers of this kind. :'D
    Lovely post!


  3. That's a good idea actually. I'm heading down to Boots tomorrow so I'll try and be sneaky and do this! xxx

  4. Definitely! I try and go for more expensive items that I've been lusting after when it's 3 for 2 because you're getting the best saving that way. I got 3 things that were £30 last time, so got an expensive serum for free! :) x

  5. I love it when boots do 3 for 2, such great value :)

  6. That is a really good idea! I did that when buying Real Technique brushes - saved so much! I miss Boots having been travelling..can't wait for a good 3 for 2 offer ha! xx

  7. I do this when it's 3 for 2 on biscuits at Sainsburys!

  8. Yes I always do this! :)
    Do the 3 for 2 with as similar prices as possible!

  9. Yes!!! Love a bargain hunter.. Thank you for sharing this amazing tip!



  10. You actually don't have to do this, the till arranges the items in price ordef and gives you every 3rd item free. I'm not sure if Superdrug does the same but boots definitely do, they did a YouTube video about it x

    1. Well better to be safe than sorry as it didnt do it when I paid in one go at the til and online it also says cheapest items are free :) x

  11. Great tip - I do this a lot! You can save so much more this way! Xxx
