Why are Boxing Day sales so huge?

Who had TV sales last year?

Boxing Day is the most popular sale day amongst retailers, so almost all top retailers had some kind of Boxing Day offer. Out of the retailers who stock televisions, here are some that had a Boxing Day deal:

  • Sony
  • Grays Online
  • Samsung
  • Catch of the Day
  • Harvey Norman
  • JB Hi-Fi
  • The Good Guys

How much did people typically save?

Savings vary greatly between the retailers. Some retailers already have heavily discounted prices on televisions, so customers save between $20-$100. On the other hand stores whose prices sit much closer to the recommended retail price, offered a significant savings on some television models.

Here are a few of the discounts and sales from the last few years.

  • Harvey Norman: Up to 50% off
  • JB Hi-Fi: Store-wide sales. For example, LG 60-inch Full HD 3D LED LCD TV and Hisense 42-inch Ultra HD Smart LED LCD TVs were just two of the TVs that were on sale.

What sort of TVs are likely to be on sale this year?

This year, we can expect to see a lot of smart TVs on sale. Smart TVs are television sets with integrated internet and new media features, such as apps. Many smart TVs have an app interface and allow you to surf the web and connect to internet streaming services like Netflix.

Smart TVs have flooded the market and are one of the hot ticket items of the year. Given the rise in popularity, we’re expecting to see some very competitive prices on smart TVs this Boxing Day.


Is it worth buying a TV online during Boxing Day sales?

Yes, absolutely! Boxing Day sales offer significant markdowns on TVs. In fact, these are probably some of the best deals you’ll find all year. If you’re in the market for a new TV, it’s definitely worth buying one in the upcoming sales.

To make the most of the Boxing Day sales you should first work out which TV you would like to purchase. Have a very clear idea of what is it that you want and find a few different options and models. This is important because the model you had your heart set on might sell out before you get a chance to buy it. Always have a backup plan.

Once you know what TV you want, work out which retailers have it in stock so you know where to shop. Keep checking the store websites or visit finder.com/NZ to stay on top of deals on offer.


In-store sales vs online sales

While the Boxing Day sales are classically taken advantage of in-store, the online sales are just as good. Most retailers have the same discounted offerings on their websites, which means you can shop from the comfort of your own home and avoid crowds and packed carparks.

However, if you’re after a specialty item where there is limited stock, it would probably be safer to purchase in-store. Specialty and limited items are often not available online.
