What are Boxing Day sales?

Boxing Day is a shopping holiday where many retailers reserve some of their best sales for the year. It has become the most popular day for shopping in Australia. Discounts can range from anywhere between 25% to 80% off during a Boxing Day sale which is really the main reason why shoppers find it worth waiting for.

Bricks and mortar retailers like Target, David Jones and MYER are well known for having some of the best Boxing Day discounts. As part of a strategy to encourage people to go to their store they often have loss leading deals with products they will lose money on.

How much money can you save by shopping on Boxing Day?

In previous years Aussies have saved over $600 million by making their purchases on Boxing Day as opposed to other days of the year. This saving is based on a minimum discount of 25% taken off a total of $2.4 billion of merchandise sold on Boxing day including fashion items, electronics, appliances and homewares.

Boxing Day sales at finder.com.au

Despite the massive savings you get from Boxing Day sales, there is still one negative side - the crowds. Boxing Day sales are usually associated with chaos, massive crowds and women fighting over the last pair of shoes in their size. The sights of policemen handling the crowds on Pitt St. Mall is not uncommon on the day after Christmas, so why put yourself through that pain again this year?

finder.com.au features a number of retailers that provide Boxing Day sales, offering the same items at the same prices, without the queues. By shopping online, there's no need to wake up at 5am just so you can get the right size. Simply log on when the sale starts and click 'add to cart' on the item you'd like, then wait for it to be delivered to your door step. You might even find coupon codes for your order so you can get even further discounts and your favourite retailers might even offer free shipping which is really an excuse for you to buy more.

Tips on getting the best bargains this Boxing Day

Getting the most out of Boxing Day sales is no easy task, so here are a few quick tips to help you get the most out of the sales.

  • Set a budget. It's easy to overspend at a sale. When you see sale signs advertising huge discounts you tend to buy more than you need because you think you are saving money. What you don't realise is the savings often don't equate to the amount you're spending. Set a budget for the day and stick to it so you don't wake up the next day with an all-too-familiar 'sales hangover'.
  • Do your research. Another common mistake at Boxing Day sales is people going shopping with little preparation. Boxing Day sales only come once a year and shouldn't be treated like a normal shopping day. Have a look and see what stores are having sales and what products they will be discounting. Many stores advertise huge Boxing Day savings but only have specific products included. Stores should list the information for its sales online, so be sure to have a look in the lead-up to Christmas.
  • Know when the sales start and finish. Both online and physical stores will have different sales with different start and end times. Have a look online at what time the shops open to make sure you get there in plenty of time. Online stores generally start their sales at around the same time or even earlier, so check times to make sure you get the best deals first. Most people aren't aware that some online stores even start their sales before Christmas, so check sales times so you don't miss out.
  • Focus on the right products. Whether you are shopping online or battling the Boxing Day crowds, sales can be overwhelming. Don't let yourself be inundated by products when the sale starts— know what you want to buy and go straight for those products. Focus on the products that were missed out on at Christmas, so if you got a lot of clothes and perfume then maybe you should look for beauty products or electronics.
