Australia’s Boxing Day sales have begun
It's the most wonderful time of the year... to buy stuff!
The biggest shopping sale day of the year, Boxing Day, is finally underway!
Maybe you have a specific list of things to buy, or perhaps you're just browsing for late Christmas gift ideas. No matter what your intention, there's something for everyone, with discounts often up to 70% off.
To avoid jostling crowds and impatient, bargain-hungry shoppers, we suggest shopping online this year.
Visit our dedicated Boxing Day sales page for the full list of available offers.
In previous years we've seen hundreds of dollars slashed from electronics, clothing and impressive flight deals.
It's anticipated Aussies will spend $2.41 billion on Boxing Day. That's about $1.67 million every minute.
More than 50% of shoppers will be logging on between the hours of 6am and 1pm. Therefore, shopping in the afternoon will be a smoother experience, but many of the most popular items could be sold out.
Some stores launch their online Boxing Day sales at midnight on the 25th, or even earlier. If you do not want to miss out on specific "hot-ticket" items, you need to make your purchases before stocks run out.
Most retailers offer online Boxing Day sales - the same items at the same prices, without the queues.
When the sale starts, log on, click "add to cart" on the items you'd like and wait for them to be delivered.
