Boots advantage card holders have just five days before they lose their points
Boots advantage card holders have just under a week to make sure they activate their card or they risk losing their advantage points.
If you've used your card within the last year, your points are safe, but if you haven't, you will need to visit a Boots store or go online to boots.com and use your card before next Monday, June 20.
Shoppers will then have to make sure to use their card once a year, every year to hold on to their points. If you don't use your card for more than four years then your account will be closed, reports Chronicle Live.
The change to the current advantage card rules come into place on Monday, June 20. Previously, customers had two years to scan their cards to make sure they don't lose their points.
The Boots loyalty card is one of the more generous loyalty cards in the marketplace, with cardholders getting four reward points for every £1 spent in-store or online. Each point is worth roughly 1p and they can be redeemed in-store and online.
In an email to customers explaining the change, Boots said: "Thank you for being one of our valued Boots Advantage Card members. Whilst it won't impact you as a regular Boots shopper, we need to let you know that we're updating our Boots Advantage Card terms and conditions.
"From 20th June 2022, we will remove Boots Advantage Card points from accounts that haven't been used for one 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 will always be there ready for you to use them."
To get a Boots Advantage card, sign up by either downloading the Boots app and signing up to the Advantage Card digitally, or by subscribing for a Boots Advantage card in-store.
