What can you hope to buy on Boxing Day in Brisbane?

Boxing Day is a huge event in the shopping calendar. Retailers all the way from small family owned speciality stores to the largest department stores have got a huge amount of leftover stock from the year which they wish to clear out. Anything which is a great gift idea, including specific-Christmas items such as decorations and gift sets, are going to be heavily reduced as retailers will find them hard to shift once Christmas is over.

Here's what you'll typically find is discounted on Boxing Day. Bear in mind that both physical stores and online stores will be bringing their best bargains out for the day, so we've included some illustrative items to get you thinking about what you might be able to nab a discount on.

How to get the most from Boxing Day sales

Boxing Day sales have been the cause of plenty of regret on account of impulse buys over the years. Here's how you can avoid it.

Buy what you need - Write a list of items you need. Then, allocate a budget of what you're willing to pay for these items. Take this list with you if you go shopping and ensure you don't stray from it. This will minimise the risk of you getting conned into buying something you never needed or even wanted.

Consider your payment options - If you're using a credit card keep in mind that some retailers may charge surcharges. Additionally, think about whether or not you'll be able to pay off your purchases before the due date. If not, consider a low rate credit card or a card with a 0% interest promotion. Failing this you might want to consider a balance transfer card.

Check refunds and exchange policies - If you're not sure about an item find out the exchange or return policies before you buy it. This way you can avoid a nasty surprise when you try to get your money back.
