Hola. Hope you are well.
I got the other half an electric toothbrush for Christmas. I knew she wanted one, so got her one.
However, I accidentally let it slip that I bought the toothbrush with my Boots Advantage Points. She wasn’t overly impressed by this revelation and even canvassed opinion. Her mum said it was ‘grounds for divorce’. My first thought was, ‘we’re not even married’, my second was, ‘that’d make a good title for a song’.
In my defence, I’d built those points over the years and was going to buy myself an electric toothbrush but I didn’t want to get one for myself and leave my other half with electric toothbrush envy.
So with this in mind, is it wrong to buy presents with Boots Advantage Points? (loyalty points, vouchers et al..)
Feel free to let me know your thoughts via the comments button or on twitter @anunknowncomic
Ps. I’m now having to rebuild my Advantage points and I don’t shop at Boots much, so it’s going to take me a long time before I get my electric toothbrush, but I’m not looking for sympathy for my selfless act.
Til next time, be nice to each other.
