Mobile Computer says no!

In the Easter holidays I took 2 of my granddaughters to Boots for some make up. Boots have a new (to me)range called CYO (I suspect it's replaced Seventeen) Anyway as part of the promotion we were given a free "Living your best life" make up bag. One make up bag, two girls! I have kept the bag to keep the peace! Yesterday I went to Boots and asked if I could buy another bag - no they are promotional only. Can I buy the make up - no the promotion has finished. The bags are in the drawer under the stand, I saw them!
So I came home and emailed head office. They said they could not locate any of the bags so I told them exactly where they were and they then said it was down to the store manager what they did with ex promo left overs! I just know they will end up in a bin somewhere! Grrr!

And then the Spa I have booked and paid for for July has emailed to says I will lose some of my loyalty points because it will be over a year since I last went there. I don't seem to be able to get through it wasn't anything like a year when I made the booking and paid in full for five people. Arghhhhh!

I know it's first world problems etc but by hell it's irritating!

Re the make up bags, I don't think they will be thrown out. I think the staff will take them for their own kids.

Just plain stupid - you think they would be glad they get used. Wouldnt be surprised if some turned up on eBay.
Re the spa points, cant you buy a product over the phone which will mean there is activity on your card to save the points?

They haven't so far. That's the frustrating bit they have presumably been there for weeks.

I would have thought my booking was enough but I will end up buying something I don't want or need - again.

I worked at Boots and my mother worked there for 55 years! Not good customer service and total lack of can do attitude.
