The Boots 70% off sale is a massive date in the bargain hunter calendar.
While most January sales start early, the larger discounts with Boots come a lot later in the month.
Boots 50% sale can be found online and in store as soon as the sale lands, with the bigger discounts coming in the third or fourth week of January.
The 70% off date is usually a secret until the very last minute, but we can pinpoint when the Boots sale starts.
Boots 70% off sale 2023
The Boots sale usually runs right at the end of January.
We can predict based on the previous year’s sales date:
Predicted date: Wednesday 1st March 2023
The 50% off sale starts just before or after Christmas Day.
For the first time, the 70% sale is running in store as well as online, which makes it far easier to pick up a bargain.
Their sale usually starts at the end of January each year but was pushed way back to mid March in 2022, so it’s a little earlier again this year (but only just).
What will be on sale?
Boots has thousands of items selling at better than half price, including branded goods in electrical, fragrance, luxury beauty, baby, beauty, and gift.
The sale won’t be on everyday items like toothpaste and shampoo but will be on their popular gift sets, selected skincare, makeup, electrical and fragrances.
If you’re a fan of some of their popular brands like No 7 or Soap and Glory, you can save more money buying a gift set than you can if you get the items individually.
The 70% off sale is in store only and is only as good as what’s leftover from their regular sale.
Don’t be too disappointed if you already find the shelves empty in your local store – when it’s gone, it’s gone.

The sale online will have a mix of up to 50% off, plus better than half price offers.
Tips to save more during the Boots sale
Getting 70% off will mean there is a lot of competition from other shoppers to grab a bargain.
Whether you are looking to treat yourself or put gifts away for next Christmas, you can still make sure to maximise your savings.
Who doesn’t like getting even more money off?
On top of the saving you can make in the Boots sale, you can stack offers to make the most of your money and save more.
Stack these deals and offers to get money off and make more money back.
Get 5% cashback spending as normal
Start using the Airtime Rewards app and get cashback when you shop at Boots, as well as loads of other high street shops.
Working in the same way as traditional online cashback, Airtime Rewards pays a percentage back on whatever you buy.
You can then use your cashback to take money off your phone bill – simples!
Use the promo code J3TNHCG9 and get 50p when you sign up and another £1 when you purchase as usual within seven days.
Get another 10% off
If you have a student discount card, like an NUS Extra Card/TOTUM card or a University/College student ID card with a specified expiry date, you can get a 10% student discount at Boots.
Show your student card (and your Advantage Card) when you pay, and the discount will be applied.
The terms and conditions on the Boots site say you cannot get discount on NHS prescriptions, selected dispensary items and Pharmacy Services, all infant formula milks, all Dyson branded products, mobile phone top-up cards, gift cards, postage stamps, Boots insurance (excluding travel insurance), Travel Services, Boots Opticians, Boots Hearingcare, bootsphoto.com, third party websites and the plastic bag levy.
In addition, they’ve said the 10% discount is also not available on gift boxes and delivery charges for purchases made online.
However, there is no mention of using the discount on stuff for sale – yippee!
Get to store for opening
Check your local store opening times (as all stores can have different times), and plan to be at the store as soon as it opens (if not just before).
Usually, the shelves can be bare by lunchtime – trust me, I’ve tried to get a deal in my lunch hour in previous years and was disappointed.
Take an Ikea bag
We all know to take our carrier bags when we shop to cut down on single-use plastic; this isn’t that kind of tip.
If you are planning to get a few things, the basket can get filled up very quickly.
Instead of struggling to balance your bargains, take a large Ikea shopping bag and fill it up like a basket as you go.
Use an Advantage Card
One obvious way to save is to use your Boots Advantage card.
If you don’t have one for whatever reason (very naughty!), it’s easy to sign up here.
Also, make sure to download and use the Boots app. You can access the loyalty card directly in-app, so you don’t need another plastic card to carry around.
You’re also able to keep track of how many points you’re collecting (collect 4 points per £1 -> 1 point = 1p to spend) and get offers to boost your points.
