Should you get the Superdrug Health and Beautycard?

The other day I walked past a Superdrug and popped in to buy nail polish (anyone else obsessed with Essie?). I was asked if I had a Health & Beautycard, which I didn’t.

As my Boots Advantage card was my first ever loyalty card, I probably felt obliged to buy my make up and shampoo in Boots.

But, as some of our readers might live closer to Superdrug, or simply prefer their offers, I thought it was time to pick up a card and look at the program.

Superdrug health and beautycard

How do I earn points?

You earn 1 point per £1.

You cannot earn points on stamps, mobile top-up, prescription medicines, infant milk formula and the purchase of gift cards

How do I spend points?

You can use your points towards payment.

100 points are worth £1. You can redeem as many points as you like, but only in multiples of 100.

If you have 550 points and buy something for £3.50, you can use 300 of your points and pay the remaining 50p cash. Alternatively you can also pay 100 points plus £2.50 or 200 points plus £1.50

Are there special promotions?

A few days after signing up, I received an email telling me I’d get triple points for the next two weeks:

I assume that this is an offer every new member gets.

On Tursdays members have access to special promotions and members also receive birthday treats.

You can find current bonus points offers here.

At the moment you get triple points on footcare, 50 points with two Shockwaves products, 150 points with 2 Ambre Solair products and tax back in points with own brand sanitary products.

Do points expire?

Yes. Earned points expire after 24 months.

You also need to use your card at least once every 12 months for your account not to be closed.

Should I get the Health & Beautycard?

That obviously depends on where you shop.

I like that Superdrug has special deals and bonus points promotions for members.

What I don’t like it that you get 1 point per £1 and need to have spent £100 to get £1 off. I also don’t like that you have to spend points in multiples of 100. If you have 190 points, you can only get £1 off. At Boots you would get £1.90 off your shopping.

Where do I sign up?

If you do want to join the Beauty & Healthclub, you can pick up an Advantage card in store and register it online here.

Alternatively you can sign up online and get the card sent to your address.

Please let us know in the comment if you use the card and what you think about Superdrug’s Health & Beautycard.

  1. Both cards have their pros and cons, i don’t like the fact that you cannot part-pay with Boots Advantage Card points, so you’ll need the full amount of points for the product you choose.

  2. I like the fact that if your order is £10 or more delivery is free…and very quick.

    They have an interesting PAYG SIM card operating on the 3 network (same owner).

    • Have had Amex offer for statement credit on spend at Superdrug but no Amex Offers for Boots.
      Forget to bring your beauty card and get no points at SD but Boots will add points from old receipts (time limited)
