As we begin to reach the end of a wild year of sales, deals and discounts it’s worth remembering that there’s one last mammoth sales event. Boxing Day 2021 is another belter collection of bargains on gadgets, games, tech and more!
Boxing Day has always been a great time to score discounts on the items you know and love. But over the years Boxing Day has drastically changed from being hoards of people out scouring the shops in search of the best deals to a much calmer online affair.
We saw a trend develop over the last couple of years. We noticed that the discounts that once were only available on Boxing Day itself began to hang around until the end of December, or even extend in January. And that's been the case again this year.
Boxing Day sales began on December 24, and while several retailers will finish off the year with a bang, others will continue the discounts through into the new year, so keep your eyes peeled for those ongoing offers.

Somewhere between gaming powerhouse and sleek ultrabook, the Razer Blade 14 is a decidedly suave and powerful machine. This unit offers the Ryzen 9 processor from AMD, 16GB of RAM, a massive 1TB SSD, the mighty GeForce RTX 3070 GPU from Nvidia and a stunning 165Hz QHD display.
Another entry in the Razer Blade range, this particular 15-inch model has some seriously cutting edge components. It packs in an insane 260Hz refresh rate display, an 11th-gen Intel Core i7 CPU, a whopping 32GB of RAM and 1TB SSD and, the crowning glory, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 GPU. For eBay Plus members, use the code PLUSDEC5 to score this massively reduced price.
For the biggest possible display on a laptop (realistically), this 17-inch Razer Blade is great for those that want some more screen real estate as they game (with a 165Hz refresh rate, no less). It offers an 11th-gen Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM and 1TB of SSD storage, alongside the mighty Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card. eBay Plus members score the full discount, using the code PLUSDEC5 at checkout.

Dell 27 Curved QHD Monitor - S2722DGM | AU$
599 AU$373.75 on eBay (save AU$225.25)
Dell's 27" QHD Curved Gaming Monitor is a budget beast. Taking 37% off of the RRP lets you grab a capable monitor with 1ms (MPRT)/ 2ms (gray to gray) response time, 165Hz refresh rate and 99% sRGB colour for sharp gaming visuals and immersive gameplay.
There's a very generous 21% off this massive monitor, if you have the room for it. Alienware has built a solid reputation, and bringing the price down to a slightly more manageable level allows you to hop into the luxury world on a mid-tier budget.
The feedback on this full-sized model is almost all universally glowing. It looks great and has comfortable ergonomically indented (what Logitech calls 'spherically dished') keys and can let you work across multiple devices via Logitech's Flow software.
Razer has always been a premium peripherals company, and right now you can grab this hugely popular mouse at well under AU$100. Operating wirelessly through Bluetooth, it’ll be a breeze to set up and start right out of the box, or you can utilise Razer’s HyperSpeed wireless to eliminate input lag. Using this clicker allows access to Razer Synapse 3 for complete customisation. Lasts 450 hours on Bluetooth and 285 on HyperSpeed.
At less than 50% of the original RRP, this deal sees the Razer Kraken at one of the best prices we've seen all year. For a single golden note you can get yourself excellent audio, a bendable cardioid microphone, and even 5 bucks change in a single package. Built for comfort, and longevity, one of the simpler ways for a cheap and cheerful upgrade to the gaming rig.
Much like the wired Kraken, this Bluetooth wireless headset provides all the same comfort and audio quality you'd expect from the Kraken range. Using Bluetooth they've whittled latency down to a tiny 40ms and there's an inbuilt gaming mode you can activate for a gaming specific sync feature. There's also light up kitty ears to assert your dominance on and off the field. Battery life is 20 hours with the lights on, 50 with them off.
With V3 of the BlackWidow, Razer have refined what's great while trimming everything unnecessary. What's left is a wireless fully RGB keyboard with practically non-existent latency. To the point where you will be hard-pressed to find a difference between a wired keyboard and this. For the deal the V3 ships with Razer's green switches for a tactile 'clicky' sensation as you type. For just AU$14 more you can also grab the quartz version to provide a gorgeous splash of colour to your desk.
Razer DeathAdder V2 Wireless Gaming Mouse
AU$224.95 AU$109 on Amazon (save AU$115.95)

Featuring up to 120 hours of battery life, and Razers' HyperSpeed wireless your performance on this comfortable clicker will be entriely unimpeded by tech. Razer's line of snake names stems from their desire to eat up all other competition in the computer mouse field. An admirable goal, and with over AU$100 saved the DeathAdder could be the perfect tool to convert non-believers into the cult of Razer.
This pocket rocket of a microphone is a powerful product in a tiny package. Powered by USB you can plug and play from anywhere, with the in-built shock resistance allowing you to comfortable capture vocals in less than ideal circumstances. While the Seiren boasts 'professional studio quality' we have our doubts, however, at AU$54 for the Quartz model you'll be hard pressed to find a better bang for your buck. For AU$59 you can get the Seiren in black for a more subued look.
This mammoth big brother to a USB stick has read and write speeds of roughly 1,000MB/s each, meaning this is an external drive will let you transfer files very quickly or work off directly, even for demanding multimedia tasks like 4K video editing.

Garmin Forerunner 245 Music |
AU$579 AU$260 on Amazon (save AU$319)

What makes this model special is the ability to store music on it, but beyond that it's GPS is great and all the necessary tracking prowess is on board too.

Boxing Day 2021 sales: when will they start?
The Boxing Day sales used to start on Boxing Day itself, December 26. But in recent years, we’ve seen deals appear a few days ahead, usually on December 24. Instead of finishing on December 26, they now keep going right until the end of the year.
With this in mind, it’s well worth keeping an eye out for early deals, but be aware that while certain prices will drop before Boxing Day, there’s always the chance that we may see bigger reductions on the actual date. It helps to be on the lookout for deals that come with a price guarantee.
When do the Boxing Day sales end, and the January sales begin?
This will change across the range of shopping destinations you’ll be looking at. While some retailers switch the title of their Boxing Day sales into January sales from December 27, others keep their Boxing Day deals right to the end of the month. For the most part you’ll find it's nothing more than a cosmetic change, the same deals being offered under a different name.
