I'm 23 weeks pregnant and have finally managed to collect my Bounty pack from Boots, after months of it being out of stock.
A long time ago before I became a SAHM (Stay At Home Mum) I was on Online Marketing Manager for a maternity clothing company and both Bounty and Emma's Diary came to see me about advertising in their packs. Both reps came along with sample packs for me to see, after all, they were asking for £10k in return for an advert. The packs I saw were fantastic, full of lovely goodies from fizzy pop, muslin cloths, washing powder, toiletries, bibs, chocolate bars, room thermometers, nappies, nipple cream, baby wipes, feeding spoons, breast pads, hot drinks, nappy cream, bubble bath, vouchers, magazines, snacks etc...
So what did I get in the Bounty pack I collected today?
A pampers new born nappy and pack of 12 wipes.
A tiny pot of sudocrem.
Fairy washing powder tablets for one wash (no fabric softener).
A pair of Avent breast pads.
And six leaflets.
No magazine, not as may samples as I thought you would get and overall I felt a bit disappointed that this is all Bounty thought my information was worth! In return for my personal details, I'd expected a pack just like the one the rep showed me when I was on the other side of the table!
As yet I haven't been able to swap my Emma's diary voucher for a pack as they too are constantly out of stock in both Argos stores and I haven't made it out to Chislehurst yet to the Lloyds pharmacy.
Anyone else like to share what they got in their packs and where in Bromley they managed to find packs in stock!
