Bargain hunters snap up £120 worth of beauty items from Boots for just £20 'due to glitch'

BOOTS shoppers have been snapping up £120 worth of beauty items for just £20 following an apparent glitch on its website.

The retailer appears to have mistakenly included its Our Beauty Heroes gift set as part of a "three for two" promotion.

The gift sets cost £10 each and contain £40 worth of products.

But instead of paying £30 for three of them, shoppers are finding that their third box is coming up free when they add them to their baskets.

This means customers are paying just £20 for three of the gift sets, which would include £120 worth of products.

It appears Boots has incorrectly included the Our Beauty Heroes set as part of its "three for two" on Elf products. 

What’s included in the Boots Our Beauty Heroes gift set?

BOOTS’ Our Beauty Heroes gift sets cost £10 each and contain £40 worth of products.

  • Revlon Ultra HD Lip Colour (shades may vary)

  • 6x L’Oréal Sample Sachets of various face and hair creams

However, if Boots confirm that this deal was a glitch, the retailer could end up cancelling customer orders and refunding the purchases.

The apparent error appears to have been running for around three hours.

Shoppers have been lapping up the deal, according to bargain website LatestDeals.co.uk.

We’ve asked Boots for clarification and we’ll update this article when we know more.

One said: “Just managed to order them. It’s still working use the link.”

Another said: “Wow wow wow thanks. Excellent deal.”

A third said: “Worked for me, thank you!”

Customers have also pointed out that you can only add the Our Beauty Heroes gift set to your basket on the search page.

If you click on the product, there isn’t an option to add it to your basket.

Brands included in the Our Beauty Heroes gift set are Soap & Glory, Maybelline, Revlon and L’Oréal.
