Boxing Day camera sales

Grab a bargain on that camera you’ve had your eye on all year. Here’s where to find the best deal on Boxing Day.

Australian shoppers are gearing up for the Boxing Day sales this year and so are the retailers. If you’re after a deal on a new camera it pays to plan ahead and know where to look.

Boxing Day sales are a big deal for Australian shoppers and electronics are always a good buy, with retailers eager to make way for next year’s models.

Last year, Australian shoppers spent at least $72 million more than Boxing Day 2013, with an annual spending growth of 3.6% across the retail sector. Boxing Day 2016 is already shaping up to be similar with retailers around the country slashing prices. It’s big business for retailers nationwide, and that’s even more reason to do your research and take advantage of the sales.

Use this page to get some ideas on where to look for a good deal on a camera this Boxing Day.

Who is likely to have camera sales on Boxing Day?

If you have your eye on a new camera this Boxing Day it makes sense to start looking around for the best prices on a particular brand or model. Start with the larger retailers that you know will be offering the biggest savings.

  • stores Australia-wide break-out the big guns for the Boxing Day sales every year and 2014 saw shoppers take advantage of 60% off storewide. While the retailer has yet to announce its deals for Boxing Day 2016, it should give shoppers an idea of what to expect.
  • Ted's Camera has already started discounting its stock for the pre-Christmas rush. It's offering a cashback deal on a range of camera models, bonus gifts with Lumix purchases and more.
  • Camera House is also offering cashback deals, but no word yet on Boxing Day sales. We’ll keep you posted.
  • Macintosh Addict has already began the sales period, offering 10% off Bang & Olufsen Play speakers and headphones and 5% off accessories.
  • Dick Smith typically starts its Boxing Day sales a few days before Christmas, but eager shoppers can pick up pre-Christmas deals now with discounted GoPro, Sony and Nikon cameras and cashback offers on a range of Canon cameras. Last year the store was offering 25% off SLR cameras, which is a bargain for camera fiends everywhere
  • DWI is expected to offer stock at slashed prices on Boxing Day. Last year, cameras and accessories were sold with a 40% discount.
  • Sony is a leader in the digital camera marketplace, offering high quality products that are well received and popular. Sony hasn’t started its Boxing Day promotions yet (which included 30% off select headphones and 25% off Walkmans last year) but are offering pre-Christmas sales, and are likely to mark stock down even more as the end of the year approaches.
  • DealsDirect’s sales were extremely specific last Boxing Day with up to 50% off certain stock. While we’re not sure if the store will be slashing its cameras this year, it’s still worth keeping an eye out for deals.
  • ValueBasket was offering a FREE Sandisk Ultra 8GB Class 10 Micro SDHC Card with any order over $299 in the 2014 sales. Expect more freebies with purchases this year on top of the store’s low prices.

How much did people typically save last year?

According to the Australian Retailers Association, Australians spent $584 million last Boxing Day. Shoppers frequently found discounts at 30%–60% at leading retailers such as and Dick Smith, and savvy shoppers were onto online sales before the big day to catch some of the best deals available, such as 80% off at Kogan.


Are Boxing Day sales worth it?

That depends. The key to making the Boxing Day sales work for you is doing your research first to avoid common pitfalls.

The Boxing Day Sales are a good excuse for retailers to attract customers to their stores and get rid of excess stock and they will try every trick in the book to make the savings seem bigger than they are. It’s not uncommon, for example, for retailers to mark up prices during the middle of the year so they can advertise a bigger discount on Boxing Day.

The sales are worth it if you have been following the prices and you know you will be getting a good deal. There are some genuinely excellent savings to be had if you know where to look.

Tip: If you have an idea of the camera model you are looking for, compare the prices from multiple retailers and keep an eye on any mark-ups or mark-downs over the pre-Christmas period. That way you’ll know exactly how much you will be saving when Boxing Day arrives.

Which have the best guarantees and return policies?

Even if you found a great deal, knowing the warranties and store policies of each retailer is still an important consideration. You want to make sure you are protected if something goes wrong your new camera.

  • All products from Macintosh Addict are guaranteed for one year and the store has a 30-day money back guarantee on all purchases.
  • Ted's Camera has a 14-day exchange policy and free return shipping.
  • has a 30-day return policy.
  • DWI products come with a 12-month warranty and 14-day money back guarantee
  • Dick Smith and Camera House products are protected under normal consumer law and will be exchanged or refunded if faulty.
