BARGAIN hunters always look forward to Boots' mega 70% off sale.
The annual flash sale has run for the past six years and offers shoppers bargain basement prices.
But when is the sale happening and will it be 70% off this year? We explain everything you need to know.
When is the Boots sale?
Boots has today confirmed the sale will start in stores on Monday, April 26.
The retailer typically slashes prices in January each year to clear leftover Christmas stock.
However, the sale has been delayed this year due to the coronavirus crisis.
Last year, the monster sale went live on January 31.
The discounts are available in stores only as long as stocks last, so it's best to be quick.
Boots has more than 2,300 stores across the UK. You can find your nearest one by using its store locator tool.
What is in the Boots sale?
The sale is usually made up of leftover Christmas stock such as beauty sets, rather than everyday essentials like toiletries or make-up.
Last year, Boots confirmed its fragrances will be part of the 70% off offer.
For example, shoppers could bag the Original Storm Trooper Eau de Toilette & Cufflinks set for £4.80, down from £16.
This year, it'll include gift sets by brands such as Ted Baker, Sanctuary and FCUK as well as Yankee candles at 70% off.

What deals can I get online?
If you don't want to shop in store, Boots is currently offering 50% off selected products online.
For example, you can get electric toothbrushes by Oral-B at half price, with one setting you back £40, down from £80.
Boots has also reduced the price of Revolution's hydrating boost gel with watermelon from £10, down to £6.67.
Or you can get an eye and lip set by KVD Beauty for £15, down from £30.
If you’re ordering from Boots online, you can click and collect from your nearest store for a £1.50 fee, or it’s free if you spend more than £20.
Alternatively, Boots offers home delivery for £3.50, unless you spend more than £30, which means it's free.
Last month, Boots added to its clearance sale by slashing the price of electronics such as shavers and straighteners.
The retailer is also giving away free baby wash to members of its parenting club.
