At Zoom Baby we are always checking the price of our pregnancy tests against shops and supermarkets. After all, why would you buy a pregnancy test from us when you can just as easily buy one down the road for less? How does a Zoom Baby pregnancy test compare to a Boots Pregnancy Test in terms of value for money.
Why do we check this? Well, we never want to be beaten by competition on price. Our objective is to bring you pregnancy tests at the best price, with the quickest possible delivery. So here goes …
Great Value Pregnancy Tests
All canny shoppers know that own brand items in supermarkets can often be great value. Does the same apply to pregnancy tests? Are they 100% accurate? Certainly we would expect a boots pregnancy tests to be cheaper than one made by one of the big brands like Clearblue or First Response.
Boots Midstream Pregnancy Tests
We checked out the prices at Boots – a leading health and beauty retailer in the UK. The cheapest Boots pregnancy tests would seem to be their midstream pregnancy tests. A pack of two tests currently retails at £4.99, which is great value if you want a regular pregnancy test, off the shelf. So, how does that compare to the Zoom Baby offering?
Well, Zoom Baby Midstream Pregnancy Tests are considerable cheaper. than the standard boots test. Each Zoom Baby test cost just £1.29. Compare that to the unit price of £2.49 per test from Boots.
Regular or Extra-Sensitive Pregnancy Tests?
The other important consideration that you must take into account when buying pregnancy tests is their sensitivity. A regular pregnancy test is designed to test for pregnancy on the day of your missed period. An extra-sensitive, or early, pregnancy test can be taken up to 6 days before the day of your expected period.
It is worth remembering that the Zoom Baby test, that we mentioned above, is also an early pregnancy test, as it is more sensitive to hCG levels than a regular test. Boots also offer an early pregnancy tests, which they advise as being able to test 5 days before your period is due. The price for this boots pregnancy test is £8.99 for a packet of two, which equates to just under £4.50 per tests – 3 and a half times more expensive than the equivalent Zoom Baby test!
Stick with Zoom Baby
As you can see, although boots pregnancy tests are great value, they cannot compare to the Zoom Baby tests in terms of value for money. Whilst you might pick up a pregnancy test from your chemist if you need to use one that day, you would be best off planning ahead and ordering a few Zoom Baby tests so that you always have a pregnancy test available when checking for that big fat positive!
