What about online Boxing Day Sales?

For those of us who prefer to spend Boxing Day with the family, don't want to deal with the mass of shoppers in every store, or don't want to deal with the lack of parking and crowded public transport, the online world has you covered.

Unlike bricks and mortar stores, online stores will allow you to spend time with your loved ones and get some bargains. You can quickly search for items and compare prices among retailers to find the best deal.

There'll be great discounts to be had online, so be sure to check out your favourite retailers, even if you're going to the Boxing Day sales at any of the locations listed above.

We have a list of featured retailers which we work hard to source sales, promotions and discount codes for. Check with us on Boxing Day to see if there are any codes you can use to get an even bigger discount on your order. Here are some of the retailers we feature:

Tips for the Boxing Day Sales in Sydney

If you want to squeeze more out of your Boxing Day experience this year and avoid coming home having spent a scary amount of money, follow these tips.

Create a budget - The most boring tip in this list is also the most important. Set aside only money you're comfortable spending for the sales and limit yourself to this. This obviously helps avoid overspending and ensures you don't regret the purchases later.

Know how you're going to be spending this money - If it's on a credit card, think about when in your statement cycle your spending will take place and therefore how many days you'll have to pay it off. Also consider taking advantage of 0% interest or balance transfer promotions to reduce any interest charges you may incur.

List the items you want to buy - The biggest problem many of us face when shopping in a high energy environment is that we buy things we didn't set out to buy in the first place. To stop this from happening, make a list of what items you want or need. Sticking to this list will not only see you save money, but also time.

Get there early - Whether online or at a physical store, the earlier you are the more choices you have. Heavily discounted items will sell faster than other items, so be sure to know when your store opens, or if shopping online, log on in the morning.


What kinds of items are discounted on Boxing Day?

Christmas is a wonderful time of year if you're a retailer. People come in their droves looking for gifts, some willing to spend whatever it takes to get their loved ones or colleagues something they'll remember.

To prepare for this, retailers—both physical and online types—will make larger orders of items than they normally would. Sometimes they'll even get a discount on items because of the larger amount they're buying. When Christmas Day is finally upon us and all gifts are bought and exchanged, retailers need a way of selling any leftover stock to prepare for the new year—and what better way to do this apart from a huge sale?

    Hello,
    Where can I buy a Play station 4 in a good price for boxing day?
    Thanks

      Hi Alice,

      Thanks for your question.

      The stores selling PS4′s at a discount during Boxing Day include:

      -Target
      -eBay
      -EB Games

      As a tip, at the moment eBay is holding a 15% off everything (orders of $150+) which might be beneficial as Target has an eBay store, meaning you can save 15% more on its stock.

      Hope this has helped,

      Stephanie

    I am visiting Sydney for the first time and landing on Boxing Day itself. I would like to visit some stores with running shoes and gears. Particularly interested in buying some Asics running shoes. Any advise where I should go? Thanks!

    • Staff
      Mia | December 29, 2015

      Hi Daniel,

      If you’re still looking for Asics shoes, you should try Catch of the Day. They have some great deals on Asics at the moment.

      Thanks!

    digital world international website says that it will be closed till 27th December, Does this mean there will no boxing day sale on digital world international. cuz the boxing day or clearance sale is on 26th December , right?

    • Staff
      Mia | December 29, 2015

      Hi there,

      Apologies for the delayed response. Digital World International have a half yearly sale on now with some great discounts. Boxing Day sales sometimes don’t run on Boxing Day itself but during the post Christmas period.

      I hope that helps. :)

      Hi Irtaza,

      Thanks for your comment and apologies for the delayed reply.

      DWI was closed on the 27th for the holiday, but has reopened now with End of Year deals. You can find out more here.

      Hope this has helped,

    Will sir the label be doing boxing day sales?

    • Staff
      Mia | December 29, 2015

      Hi there,

      It doesn’t appear that Sir The Label are having a Boxing Day sale. However a few of the stockists have some pieces on sale. Tuchuzy and Splice Boutique have a few pieces by Sir The Label on sale.

      I hope that helps. :)

    is kogan trustable , do the provide an official warranty.

    • Staff
      Stephanie | December 21, 2015

      Hi Irtaza,

      Kogan is one of the largest online electronics retailers in Australia and is a reputable retailer.

      All Kogan.com products come with a minimum 12 month warranty that covers manufacturer faults. For most products there is also the option of extending the warranty to 3 or 5 years.

      I hope this has helped,

    can we shop online on boxing day will the discount be for online buyers as well
    what are the odds of having a good sale at david jones, digital world international.

    • Staff
      Mia | December 21, 2015

      Hi there,

      Thanks for getting in touch with us here at finder.com.au.

      You can definitely shop online during the Boxing Day sales. In fact, I would recommend shopping online over visiting the store. You can beat the crowds and it’s less likely that the product you want will sell out because online stores generally have a larger inventory that individual stores. And we can definitely expect to see the Boxing Day in store discounts reflected online.

      David Jones will almost definitely have a Boxing Day sale. Obviously, there is no official way to know at this point but David Jones has had a Boxing Day sale for the last 15 years. So it’s a safe bet that they will have one this year.

      As for Digital World International, again we can’t confirm anything at this stage. But Boxing Day is most famous for discounts on TVs, cameras and computers so I would say that it is extremely unlikely that they won’t participate.

      If you would like to know when all the Boxing Day deals become available, I would recommend signing up to the finder.com.au deals newsletter. We’ll let you know as soon we hear about any sales.

      Thanks!

      :)

      Hi Irtaza,

      Some sites that sell the LG G3 or Samsung S5 include:

      Kogan

      David Jones

      I hope this has helped,

      Stephanie | December 21, 2015

      Hi Baek,

      Thanks for your question.

      In the lead up to Christmas, there aren’t any specific drone sales. However you might like to check out the following sites to compare prices on the DJI Phantom:

      DJI Innovations
      Kogan
      eBay

      You might also like to check back on our Boxing Day sales page closer to the date to see if any discounts do happen during this sale period.

      I hope this has helped,

      Stephanie
