I've tried 4 Boots stores with no joy, might give 1more a go then give it up as a bad job. All have said they're out of stock & no idea when more will be arriving in store, was quite looking forward to the freebies but if if it's just a load of old tat I might give it a miss

This will be DC1 so rather excitedly went to pick my mum-to-be pack up from Superdrug on Monday. I found the magazine in the first pregnancy info pack pretty useful as I just have no clue what to expect but the mum-to-be pack is just marketing bumpf. I got a mimi pot of moisturiser but nothing to be excited about.

My advice (having been there very recently!) is:
Set up a new gmail account
Give this email address only to bounty, Nct, baby centre, pampers etc
Don't give a mobile number (or any other phone number)
Tick all boxes that say 'tick here if you don't want to receive messages from our partner companies' etc

Got given my pack at my first scan, well technically I saw a pile of them and asked for one! it had: mini pot of sudocrem, sachet of Vanish gel - quite useful for cleaning white curtains that my cat had pee'd on, a disposable nappy and a sample of Ovaltine which I did become addicted to in the early stages. It's mainly full of vouchers/adverts.

I decided not to get mine after realising it was just a giant marketing ploy. I suspected I would end up spending more in the long run by being made to think I needed all these "must have" products, than I would save on the samples.

I'll buy what I think I need and keep my personal details...

Second what anya said! Still getting calls from fecking Emma's diary two years bloody later smile

Don't do it and don't give them your details!!!

At the scan you (I) got the envelope one which had a couple of freebies and the leaflet to get the bag which you pick up from Boots.

Is the boots one different to the one given at the scan? X

sundaesundae Tue 20-Nov-12 13:31:02

I got given mine at my 12 week scan (not the first scan for me) and then the leaflet for the Boots one was in there.

My friend keeps asking if I've had my bounty pack yet - when should I get the voucher for it? Is it 1st scan?
thanks

You're really not missing out, but if you really want one then tell a customer service person at Boots and they'll get one with your name on it.

Haha, I guessed as much. I feel like I'm becomming Honey Boo Boo's mother, with all the coupons for free stuff and money off baby stuff I'm collecting! [big grin]

Unless u want fifty cans of appletise grin

You're REALLY not missing out! smile

Hi all
Anyone had trouble trying to get one of these packs with their voucher, I've tried various Boots and Superdrug stores and they're like gold dust! The stories about a baby boom must be true. I'm not too worried about it either way, but now I can't get it I want it hehe wink
