Tips and FAQs
What can you hope to buy on Boxing Day?
After the busy Christmas season, many people take the opportunity to get something special for themselves or get yearly investments out of the way. You can save money by buying big ticket items at heavily discounted prices on Boxing Day. Items that typically go on sale are clothes, computers and electrical wares.
How to get the most out of Boxing Day sales
- Pick your focus. Do you need clothes, homewares or electronics? Make a note of the stores you plan on visiting based on the kind of products you will be shopping for. If you need a bit of everything, think about hitting the department stores first.
- Do your research to find the best sales. Many stores (particularly online) start their Boxing Day sales early and many others will continue the sale period for a few days after. Research the stores you want to visit and find out their sale dates and trading hours.
- Make a budget. Decide how much money you want to spend during the sales and stick to it.
- Keep up your energy levels. Get a good sleep the night before and don’t forget to stop for breaks. Grab a coffee or a sandwich in between stores to refresh and take stock of your progress. Don’t forget to pack a bottle of water!
