Who had Boxing Day TV sales last year?

Almost all top retailers in New Zealand had some kind of Boxing Day offer in 2019. Out of the retailers who stock televisions, here are a few that had Boxing Day sales:


How much did people typically save?

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

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

  • Harvey Norman: Harvey Norman slashed prices of 4K television in 2019. The LG 4K Smark OLED TV was priced at $2,399 with a saving of $739.
  • Mighty Ape: At the Mighty Ape Boxing Day sale in 2019 there were awesome deals on Gorilla Smart TVs. The 32″ TV was $199 and the 55″ model was $598.

How to make the most of the Boxing Day sales


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 TV 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 hanging out until 26 December if you can.

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. We’ll have the latest deals loaded here as soon as we have them, so keep checking back to find out where to score a bargain.


In-store sales vs online Boxing Day TV sales

While Boxing Day TV 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 model where there is limited stock, purchasing in-store might be your only option if the retailer has physical stores. If this is the case, you can often check and see availability and your local store online before you leave home.
