The best January sales in Australia
Now that Christmas is over, Boxing Day madness has passed and we’ve all stuffed ourselves silly during twixmas (the part of the year between Christmas and New Year), it’s time to get serious. It’s January.
We’re reader-supported and may be paid when you visit links to partner sites. We don’t compare all products in the market, but we’re working on it!
If you haven’t completely blown your budget (if you have, check out our personal loans and credit card advice), you’ll be pleased to know you can get some proper bargains in January.
A lot of Boxing Day sales carry on well into the New Year. There’s still excess stock to move along as new season lines start to come in, so space needs to be created in the warehouses. January sales are a big deal elsewhere in the world, but there are bargains to be had in Australia too. Here are some things you can get cheaper in January:

All savvy jetsetters love January. From airlines to cruises to package holidays, everything is discounted. It’s the time of year where almost every airline has a mega sale (seriously, get looking for those long-haul airfares now) and agents come out with unbelievable packages up to 50% off to places like Fiji, Bali, Thailand, Europe and more. Tour companies also have mega savings, so now is the time to book that escorted China tour, once-in-a-lifetime Europe getaway or that USA road trip. There will be travel deals and sales all month, but if you see something awesome, take our advice: book it ASAP.

Many new season styles come in soon, so excess stock needs selling, pronto. Since Aussies are such international online shoppers, you can also benefit from sales at UK and US websites, especially with our seasons being the opposite way around. Shops like ASOS and Missguided will be having sales on their autumn/winter lines, and this means Aussies can stock up early for the Australian winter season. It might be hard to imagine snuggly knits and ankle boots now, but this pre-planning could save you a fortune. Why not buy what you need, keep it wrapped up at the back of your wardrobe and open it when the temperatures dip. It will be like Christmas all over again!

Some people love the January sales just so they can prepare for next Christmas. Whether you’re looking for Christmas-themed gift box sets, Christmas decorations, lights, cards or anything else, now is the time to get them at hugely slashed prices. This is just like buying your Valentine’s Day card on 15 February – all the demand has gone, but stock might still be remaining. Here are some top stores:
