SHOPPERS have just weeks left to use their Boots Advantage card or risk having their points wiped.

A shake up of the popular loyalty scheme will see the period of time you can go without using the card slashed.

From June 20, Boots customers will have their points wiped after one year of their card going unused.

Currently it's two years but the high street store revealed a shake up of the scheme's terms and conditions announced earlier this year.

Anyone who hasn't used their card for over a year could lose the points they have built up unless they use their card before the date next month.

You won't need to use the points, just use the card, so that means scanning it when you shop in store next, or adding it to an online order – plus you'll earn new points too for that transaction.

If it's been more than four years since you've used your Boots card your account will be closed if you don't do this.

And from now on you'll need to use the card at least once a year or you could end up losing the rewards you've earned.

Boots' popular loyalty card has over 14 million customers who can earn rewards by using their card online and in stores.

It is free to sign up for and helps you get money-off when shopping at Boots in store or online.

Advantage card members earn four rewards points for every £1 they spend in-store and online.

Those points are worth 1p in terms of money you can use to spend in-store again.

So you'd need to build up 100 points to get £1 off your Boots shopping and 1,000 points to get a tenner off.

Boots has also started launching special prices for Advantage card-holders.

It's a bit like Tesco's Clubcard – customers don't need a discount code, or to follow some ten-step routine to redeem.

Using your points card at the till in real life or online will automaticallygive you a cheaper price on certain products, with some as much as 50% off.

You can spot Price Advantage discounts on shelf labels in store and product listing online.

If you don't have an Advantage card, you won't get the discount and will pay full price for the item.

Shoppers who are part of the loyalty scheme can also earn extra points in special giveaways through the year.

For example one weekend it offered 1,000 "free" loyalty points that are worth £10 for shoppers who spent £60.

You can also earn extra points by returning empty toiletries for recycling.
