You might even have an advantage over the ‘bricks and mortar’ bargain hunters – online sales often start even earlier than traditional stores.
What can you hope to buy on Boxing Day?

How to get the most out of Boxing Day sales
Get there early. To avoid missing out on the good stuff, it’s a good idea to arrive when the stores open. You’ll stay ahead of the crowds, get first dibs on discounts, and may even be able to go home early. If you’re planning to make the Boxing Day sales online, doublecheck the start time. Online stores often beat the regular retailers, even by a day or two.
Do your research. Shopping centres, department stores and big and small retailers will slash their prices to compete with each other on Boxing Day. That means that the item you’d like to purchase will probably be available in more than one place. Do your research to find the best price.
Make a budget. A budget is helpful to avoid overspending. Set yourself a price limit for each item on your list and try to stay within your price range.
Come prepared. Comfortable clothes and walking shoes will go a long way to making your day more enjoyable. Remember to eat and pack a bottle of water. If you’re planning on a new wardrobe, wear clothes and shoes you can easily take on and off.
