Stuffed yourself full of Christmas goodies and now can't be bothered to go shopping to snag those excellent Boxing Day deals? Well, you can stay propped up in bed and shop Boxing Days sales from several retailers right from home because the T3 team has put together a list of top Aussie retailers who're sure to have a bargain or two to catch your attention.

Boxing Day sales have always been a great time to score discounts on the items you know and love, from beauty and fashion to tech and furniture. 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 likely going to be the case again this year, with the possibility of several retailers starting early Boxing Day sales by Christmas Eve.

We say that because it happened last year. Boxing Day sales began on December 24, 2021 at several retailers – as it has this year too – both online and in store, and many of these continued on into the new year to extend into what's being called January Sales.

So, where can you find Boxing Day sales this year? That's an easy answer – in Australia, most retailers have Boxing Day sales, so you'll be able to find a bargain on a lot. We've got a list of some top retailers across several categories that might tempt you away from your money, so take a look below.

Boxing Day 2022 sales: when will they start? 

The Boxing Day sales used to start and end on Boxing Day itself, December 26. But in recent years, we’ve seen deals appear a few days ahead, usually on December 24. And, instead of finishing on December 26, they now keep going right until the end of the year, sometimes even extending into what is now being called the January sales.

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.  

What is Boxing Day in Australia?

Boxing Day is the day after Christmas and, year on year, is always December 26. While in Australia it's most known for test cricket and the Sydney-to-Hobart yacht race, it's also a day that's become famous for shopping.

Boxing Day sales were mostly in-store but the last few years have shown that online shopping now beats having to line up in the wee hours of the morning outside your favourite store to snap a great bargain on something you want.

Boxing Day sales have also typically been about clothing, shoes and other fashion items, plus homewares like furniture, but lately anything has been fair game for a discount. You can find offers on practically anything these days, particularly if you shop on Amazon or eBay.
