Boxing Day Sale Phones 2021
It’s time to bring your mobile phone into the 21st century.
We all know that Boxing Day brings one of the most anticipated sale events of the calendar year. Retailers line up to boast their unbeatable savings in a bit to win customers over. That said, we’re expecting Boxing Day sales this year to bring bigger and fiercer competition than ever before.
What makes Boxing Day one of the biggest sales events of the year? Well, that’s because stores overstock during the Christmas period so as not to leave them short on the gifts we buy for a catalogue of family members, friends, and colleagues. This usually results in stores having a collection of products left over that they really need to get rid of quickly in order to make room for the new lines that are introduced in the new year. In a bid to clear their shelves, retailers dramatically reduce the prices of thousands of products. This is what makes Boxing Day a shoppers dream.
Last year, Canadians spent approximately $1.2 billion during the Boxing Day sale. The sale event usually runs from 26 December through to 15 January, the average spend per person was in the region of $328.

Which do we predict will have a Boxing Day sale this year and what do we recommend?
Based on the stores that got involved in the Boxing Day sales events last year, we’re expecting all major Canadian retailers to join in the sale this year.
This year we’re expecting to see thousands of retailers trying to entice us to buy through them. Here are a handful of Finder’s favourite smartphone sites and stores that may make buying the smartphone you’re after even more affordable.
- Best Buy
Is Boxing Day a good time to invest in a new phone and is it worth buying?
100%. If you’re in the market for the latest in smartphone technology, then Boxing Day is the perfect time to purchase. This sale event sees some of the best price cuts of the year, and so it’s definitely worth the wait to see what’s available when the day comes.
TIP: If you’re craving a specific brand of smartphone, let’s say Sony, or Apple’s latest iPhone release, you’ll want to scope out the deals and discounts offered at the larger department stores like Walmart, Best Buy, and Amazon before buying direct through the manufacturer. This could prevent the unnecessary disappointment of learning that you could have gotten a more impressive deal elsewhere.
Is Boxing Day better for buying Android or IOS?
That is completely your decision. Whether you’re leaning towards IOS or Android operating systems, there’ll be plenty of choices at tempting prices when the Boxing Day sale arrives.
If you’re planning on buying a new all singing all dancing smartphone in the sales this year, it’d be in your best interest to do your research on the different manufacturers and models, and assess any features and specifications offered by each so that you buy the right one for you.
