Re: Boots Cotton Wool Pads

(@ brake pads!)


I know exactly where you are coming from Artangel as I went to buy some in Boots a few weeks ago and thought, blimey, they've shot up in price! Superdrug had an offer 3 for 2 but they were still expensive and I did not need 3 packets! I think I got them in Sainsburys or maybe it was Asda, in the end.

Re: Boots Cotton Wool Pads

There must be something in finding the same products cheaper in the 'baby section', Martin Lewis I recall mentioned this in one of his reports about money saving tips, link below:

Glanny, l saw in my local Tesco convenience store where things are usually dearer than bigger stores, that they were only 89p for 100 pads!

Yes, still the same as while they can get away with it they will. I first noticed this with cotton buds after reading that article, now I always look around to see what 'fiddles' these shops are up to.

Boots prices are high but they have a good meal deal.
