Beauty Reward Cards

Being the complete beauty obsessive I am, the majority of my wages go on buying new products whether it be makeup, skincare or hair products... you name it I want it. My beauty reward cards are the second most important thing in my purse, after my bank card of course, and I always make sure to use them where ever possible. Even if this means waiting a of couple days for an online order to come through or going to a different store to purchase an item. So today I thought I would give you a run down of my favourite beauty reward cards...

Boots Advantage Card
Easily my most loved beauty card, this sits right next to my debit card for easy access. With 4 points per £1 spent and 1 point equating to 1p, this quickly builds up the value of my card, usually meaning that I have more money on this card than in my bank. I always make sure to put my card in the Advantage Card Kiosk when entering Boots as I find the best point-boosting offers this way, more points = more money to spend on makeup. 

House of Fraser Recognition
This is probably my least used beauty card, mainly for the fact that the rewards (1 point per £1) isn't that amazing. However, this does come in useful around birthdays and Christmas as you receive points throughout the whole store, not just in the beauty department. Once 500 points has built up on your card you are rewarded the value of £5 which can be used as part-payment towards a product, unlike the Boots card where you must have full value of the product.

Debenhams Beauty Club
Once my most used product, this is now my go-to card for any products that I cannot purchase from Boots. With 3 points per £1 and 500 points equaling a £5 reward, this card it most used for MAC and Urban Decay purchases. The best bit about this card? Points are carried forward each month and you are notified with a 'Beauty Club Statement', which also warns you when your points are close to running out of time. It can all get a little confusing but it is always nice to have £5 taken off your purchase at the till.

Space NK N.Dulge
This is reserved purely for the more luxurious of beauty buys; NARS, Hourglass, Kevyn Aucoin, you get the gist. 1 point per £1, £5 per 100 points... it is very easily done. Some other perks of this card are the complimentary samples with orders, a birthday treat and invites to events. There is also the chance to upgrade to N.Dulge De Luxe, but you have to spend a whole lot of money for that...

It is always nice to get something back, or a little something off something expensive. 

What are your favourite beauty reward cards? 


  1. I have the Boots and Superdrug one. I don't shop anywhere else so they are best for me!

  2. I have a boots and superdrug one but I do need the house of fraser one too :)

  3. I have a boots, spacenk and debenhams beauty cards - the boots card is definitely the best by far in my opinion. As you said you do have to spend a lot to get any rewards with the spacenk card and the points expire so quickly on the debenhams card that I never end up being able to use them x

  4. My advantage card is definitely my favourite card of them all. Whatever I can get in Boots I tend to buy from there as the points add up so quickly you can regularly treat yourself to something reasonable or save a little while longer for a higher end treat x

  5. I tend to use my HOF card a lot as I have a branch 5 minutes from my office which is dangerous but like you with Debenhams is handy for Mac purchases. I also can use it for my threading and nail appointments so it can stack up. Boots of course is the favourite, especially as again I have a branch near work that stocks the high end brands. I actually brought my Chanel Les Beiges solely with advantage card points.


  6. I totally agree, my points cards have high importance in my purse also! I use the Boots, Harrods and Debenhams beautys cards religiously haha. I heard that House of Frasor and John Lewis have cards or are introducing beauty cards so they will definitely be added to the collection when i am next in store haha.

    Everytime i go London chances are i will be in Selfridges so they need to up their game and introduce an awards scheme asap :D
