Boxing Day has an origin which historians can't seem to decide on.
Some say it has origins in the Anglican tradition of collecting money in boxes during Christmas and handing it out the day after. Others say it has roots in the tradition where employers and the aristocracy would give their servants and employees gifts on the day after Christmas. Either way, in Sydney the day after Christmas signals arguably the most competitive sales in the state and is also a time for getting some of the best bargains of the year.
So what kinds of things are discounted on Boxing Day and where can the major sales be found in Sydney? Most importantly, what tips can you use to make sure you're getting a bargain and how can you avoid a nasty credit card debt hangover?
Read on and you'll find answers.

If you want to squeeze more out of your Boxing Day experience this year and avoid coming home having spent a scary amount of money, follow these tips.
Christmas is a wonderful time of year if you're a retailer. People come in their droves looking for gifts, some willing to spend whatever it takes to get their loved ones or colleagues something they'll remember.
To prepare for this, retailers—both physical and online types—will make larger orders of items than they normally would. Sometimes they'll even get a discount on items because of the larger amount they're buying. When Christmas Day is finally upon us and all gifts are bought and exchanged, retailers need a way of selling any leftover stock to prepare for the new year—and what better way to do this apart from a huge sale?

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
