What does Boxing Day mean?

Boxing Day means an extra day off to spend with your family and friends, visit another side of the family you didn’t get time to see on Christmas and put your appetite to the test by plowing through those leftovers.

But these days shoppers also celebrate Boxing Day bargain hunting as major stores drop their prices to clear stock before the new year. We like to think of it as the day you give a gift to yourself.


What are Boxing Day sales?

Boxing Day is a shopping holiday where many retailers reserve some of their best sales for the year. It has become the most popular day for shopping in commonwealth countries. Discounts can range from anywhere between 25% and 80% off, which is the main reason shoppers find it worth waiting for.


How did Boxing Day get its name?

The prevailing theory about this is that Boxing Day refers to “Christmas boxes”. The idea is that domestic workers and servants who worked on Christmas Day had the next day off to celebrate and would give and receive boxed gifts for the occasion.


When Does the Boxing Day sale start?

The Boxing Day sale starts online at midnight on 26 December. If you received gift vouchers for Christmas, Boxing Day is the best day to spend them. This is perhaps the biggest sale of the year with epic savings on tech, fashion, homewares, beauty, toys, pets goods and more. Stay up late on Christmas Day or get up super early to score the best deals.


Are shops open on Boxing Day?

As a rule stores, shopping centres and retailers keep their doors open and their prices down on Boxing Day and wait for the crowds to come. There might be a few exceptions, as these days “Boxing Day sales” can start closer to New Year’s Eve. It’s always best to double-check if you are after something specific. If your favourite store is not open on Boxing Day or if you can’t stomach the crowds, take a look online instead.


Can I shop in-store on Boxing Day?

Yes. Although personally we like to avoid the crowds, if you wish to do in-store shopping and your chosen store is open, you surely can.


Does Apple do Boxing Day sales?

Yes, Apple joins Boxing Day sales each year. It’s tricky to know beforehand what will be on sale and where you can pick up the best deal. We suggest making a list of your top 3 must-haves and subscribing to a sale alert so you can find the discounts as soon as possible.


How much money can you save by shopping on Boxing Day?

In previous years shoppers have saved over $600 million by making their purchases on Boxing Day as opposed to other days of the year. This saving is based on a minimum discount of 25% taken off a total of $2.4 billion of merchandise sold on Boxing Day, including fashion items, electronics, appliances and homewares.

Boxing Day sales in Hong Kong

Despite the massive savings you get from Boxing Day sales, there is still 1 negative side – the crowds. Boxing Day sales are usually associated with chaos, massive crowds and people fighting over the last pair of shoes in their size. So why put yourself through that pain again this year?

Finder features a number of retailers that provide Boxing Day sales, offering the same items and prices without the queues. By shopping online, there’s no need to wake up at 5am so you can get the right shoe size. Simply log on when the sale starts and click “add to cart” on the item you’d like, then wait for it to be delivered to your doorstep. You might even find coupon codes for your order so you can get further discounts. Your favorite retailers might also offer free shipping, which is really an excuse for you to buy more.


When do Boxing Day sales end?

It varies from store to store. In most cases, the best sales are available from 26 December until the first week of January. Some shops will keep on reducing the price of their old stock until it’s all gone while others will keep the sales to a strict deadline.


Tips on getting the best bargains this Boxing Day

Here are a few quick tips to help you get the most out of the Boxing Day sales.

  • Set a budget. It’s easy to overspend at a sale. You tend to buy more than you need because you think you are saving money. What you don’t realise is the savings often don’t equate to the amount you’re spending. Set a budget for the day and stick to it so you don’t wake up the next day with an all-too-familiar “sales hangover”.
  • Do your research. Another common mistake at Boxing Day sales is shopping with little preparation. See which stores offer sales and discounted products as many stores advertise huge Boxing Day savings but only include specific products. Stores should list the information for their sales online too.
  • Know when the sales start and finish. Both online and physical stores will have different sale periods. Check their schedules to get there with plenty of shopping time. Some online stores even start their sales before Christmas.
  • Focus on the right products. Whether you are shopping online or battling the Boxing Day crowds, sales can be overwhelming. Know what you want to buy and go straight for those products. If you received a lot of clothes and perfume on Christmas then maybe you can now get beauty products or electronics.
