Boxing Day TV sales for 2020

Get the most out of your Christmas Blu-rays and video games by picking up a new TV this Boxing Day.

Updated

Between bigger screens, higher resolutions and fancy features like OLED screens and voice recognition, there's always one reason or another to upgrade your TV. Of course, good TVs aren't exactly cheap and getting one decked out with all the latest trimmings can set you back a pretty penny.

That's what makes Boxing Day such a great time to shop for a new set. Not only do retailers offer steep price cuts across all manner of TVs big and small, they tend to serve up clearance deals on end-of-cycle models, too. If you're upgrading from a particularly mature TV, these clearance models can still represent a significant improvement in size and clarity at a very compelling price.

For this year's Boxing Day sales, retailers like The Good Guys, JB Hi-Fi and Sony will almost surely drop some heavy discounts on 4K TVs in the 30–50" range, as newer sets are trending towards displays of 60" and higher.

Who had TV sales last year?

Boxing Day is the most popular sale day among retailers, so almost all top retailers had some kind of Boxing Day offer. Out of the retailers that stock televisions, here are some that had a Boxing Day deal:


How much can you save?

Savings vary greatly between the retailers. Retailers like Appliances Online already have heavily discounted prices on televisions, so customers might only save between $20 and $100. On the other hand, stores like Harvey Norman, where prices sit much closer to the recommended retail price, have offered significant 50% savings on some television models in previous years.

Here are a few of the discounts from past Boxing Day sales:

  • Dick Smith: 25% off TVs.
  • Harvey Norman: Up to 50% off.
  • JB Hi-Fi: Store-wide sales. For example, LG 60-inch Full HD 3D LED LCD TV and Hisense 42-inch Ultra HD Smart LED LCD TVs were just two of the TVs that were on sale.

What sort of TVs are likely to be on sale this year?

4K is likely to remain at the forefront of TV sales this Boxing Day. As the name implies, 4K represents 4 times the resolution of 1080p (also known as full HD). This makes it possible to produce sharper pictures with more detail, though only when displaying content that is specifically made for 4K. Watching a standard HD movie on a 4K TV won't offer any significant visual improvement over watching on an HD TV.

Along with 4K, HDR is another feature you're likely to see among discounted TVs this year. HDR, or high dynamic range, increases the spectrum of light a TV can display, allowing for greater contrast in both bright and dark areas. The effect is an image that appears more vivid than on a non-HDR set. Again, though, content must support HDR specifically to take advantage of it.


Is it worth buying a TV online during Boxing Day sales?

Purchasing a new TV online comes with a whole slew of advantages over heading to your local brick-and-mortar store. For one, you won't have to deal with the crushing crowds that inevitably accompany the Boxing Day sales. You can also quickly and easily compare prices across multiple retailers, making it simpler to ensure you get the best deal available.

That said, if you're not sure what kind of TV you want or you're still on the fence about upgrading, it can be valuable to head in-store and compare different sets in action. Assessing picture quality with your own eyes is something you just can't do when shopping online and that can occasionally be worth dealing with long lines and higher prices.


How much is delivery from the main retailers?

The following retailers offer free shipping.

  • Catch.com.au: Free shipping on order over $45 when you register with Club Catch.
  • Appliances Online: Free shipping to most metropolitan areas and select regional centres.
  • Amazon: Free shipping on select products for orders over $49.
  • eBay: Free delivery on select items for eBay Plus members.

The following retailers have a calculated shipping cost.

  • Dick Smith: Shipping charges range from $9.95 to $49.95 depending on the weight of the item being shipped.
  • Grays Online: Shipping is calculated according to delivery location.
  • Harvey Norman: Shipping charges are calculated based on item weight and delivery location.
  • JB Hi-Fi: Delivery fees are calculated on a weight basis and charged per unit.
  • The Good Guys: Shipping is calculated based on item weight and delivery location.

*figure is based on median Australian salary of $57,400 from ABS data and information from the Australian Retailers Association.
