What will be on sale?
It’s quite difficult to know which items will be on sale before the sales are officially announced. But major brands such as Adidas take advantage of Boxing Day sales to get rid of any left over stock – anyone’s guess what that might be when the date rolls around!
Sometimes that means you’ll get items that didn’t sell well during the year, but you can also find staple styles that every store and every warehouse has in excess (think Adidas superstars and classic 3-stripe apparel).
Look out for end-of-season stuff. It’s summer now which means that a lot of the autumn and winter stock will be available at rock bottom prices. If you don’t feel weird about buying a winter jacket in the middle of summer, you can find a great deal.
What’s the Adidas returns policy?
The official Adidas store offers free returns, Australia wide, within 30 days of delivery. This policy also applies to sale periods. Exchanges are not offered for online returns so if you purchase the wrong size by mistake you’ll need to return your item, receive a refund and process a new purchase for the new item.
Some Adidas stockists will have different returns policies.City Beach offers 30-day returns, and issues refunds and exchanges, including during sales periods. You’ll need to pay for the return shipping.The Iconic offers refunds and exchanges within 30 days of delivery, and will foot the bill for the return shipping.SurfStitch offers 30-day returns for items bought on sale (100-day returns for full-priced items). You can choose a refund or an exchange and the returns postage is covered by SurfStitch.
Boxing Day shopping online vs in store
While we love to shop online at finder.com (it’s frequently where you can find the best deals) the atmosphere at a big sale can be intoxicating if you’re there in person. It really comes down to personal choice.
If you’re looking for specialty items, your best bet might be to scour the online stores and make a note of when they will hold their sales. On the other hand, if you’re shopping for clothes, you might prefer to purchase in store to save yourself the hassle of having to make a return if your new clothes or shoes don’t fit properly.
If you choose to do your shopping online this year, be sure to double check the returns policies. Some stores won't accept change-of-mind returns, or will only offer exchanges during sales periods.
Tips for getting the most out of the Boxing Day sales
- Make a budget and a list.
Whether you’re shopping in person or online, Boxing Day sales can be a bit overwhelming. To avoid spending more than you plan to it’s a good idea to take a few minutes to make a budget and a list of items in order of priority. If you like the thrill of snapping up a bargain in the spur of the moment, put aside an amount of money for spontaneous purchases.
- Do your sales research.
Traditionally, sales start on December 26th – but plenty of stores start their sales earlier or later. Getting in on the day the sales open is crucial if you want to select from the best items, so make sure you know when your favourite stores will begin to drop their prices.
- Shop around.
Major brands such as Adidas are sold through lots of different stores. If you’re looking for a particular pair of shoes, or you want the best price on a collaborative line, take the time to do a search online to find the best place to do your shopping.
