The best Boxing Day sales 2017: finding you the finest deals right now


The Boxing Day sales are a great opportunity to grab a bargain deal before the year’s out and some retailers are already unleashing some cracking deals. So naturally, we’ve picked out some of the best ones for you today. This might be for something you’ve been waiting for a stunning price on for months, or maybe something you’d been keeping your fingers crossed you’d be getting for Christmas.

And hey, just because you didn’t find the right price on Black Friday, doesn’t mean you won’t have better luck this time. As for the ‘January sales’, we’re seeing fewer ace deals in those each year nowadays as retailers focus on November and December for their best deals. So, if you see a bargain that looks right for you, it might be time to treat yourself while you still have a chance.

When do the Boxing Day sales start?

Not a silly question at all. We actually see loads of retailers push the button (probably with gravy on their fingers) at some point on Christmas Day. We’ll be watching all of the usual suspects like a hawk throughout the Christmas break and will bring you the deals when they go live, even if they go live sooner than expected.

We’re expecting retailers to really get going with the deals by early evening on Christmas Day. So you might want to delay that post-dinner snooze until you’ve taken a peek. We’ve even seen some super eager online stores unleashing a sale early on Christmas Eve. We’ve rounded up the early bargains below our extensive list of retailers.

Who’s having a Boxing Day sale?

If last year was anything to go by, all the big stores will be getting stuck in. With so many keen shoppers going online over the Christmas period in recent years, it’s just too good a chance for them to finish 2017 off with some extra money in the bank. Let’s take a look at the big hitters below and at what to expect.

The Amazon Boxing Day sale is a great place to start. Amazon will be discounting a huge range of items and we usually get a sneak peek before they go live, so we’ll be able to prepare a curated list of the best ones. Because you shouldn’t have to make your way through the chaff when you’re supposed to be on a break. At the very least we expect some potential discounts on key Amazon devices like Kindles or Fire TV Sticks.

Currys and PC World are one and the same now. We’ll just call them Currys though to keep things simple. Expect Currys to go big on discounted TVs, laptops, gaming consoles, Dyson cordless vacuum cleaners, Fitbits, Dashcams, cameras, kitchen electricals and more.

Very.co.uk has been on the rise for a while now and we saw a fantastic selection of deals from the pink loving online store on Black Friday. Super PS4 deals and Xbox One X bundles took center stage for us, but there were some great laptop and TV deals too. Very will be a prime candidate for discounts on clothing and health & beauty products too.

AO is another store on the up and it’s been a regular visitor on our selection of cheap TV deals all year round. While we also expect them to have a few laptops on offer, AO really specialise in home electrics. So if you’re after a new fridge, freezer, washing machine, kettle, microwave and the like AO.com will have something for you.

John Lewis doesn’t really like sales, but it does like to nab customers from other retailers by offering a price match service. Why bother with the faff? Because John Lewis offers a two year guarantee on a huge selection of items at no extra charge, which is great for peace of mind when buying electrical items. Despite its disdain for sales, we saw JL unleash some sweet TV and gaming deals on Black Friday and we’re expecting them to get involved again. Note: John Lewis high street stores will actually be closed on Boxing Day itself if you were thinking of heading down in person. You dinosaur.

Tesco has a few Boxing Day and Black Friday sales under its belt now and actually competes throughout the year on loads of our favourite tech items. Expect deals on laptops, TVs, consoles and so on. If Amazon start to discount any of its Kindles or Echo devices, you can guarantee that Tesco won’t be far behind with a pricematch, which is great if you’re collecting Clubcard points.

Argos is one of those retailers who always seem to be having a sale on, so expect it to make a bit of a song and dance come December 26th. Annoyingly, much of its stock is region-based, but you can check stock by entering your postcode to check before going through the checkout process. Discounted prices on laptops, TVs, toys and console bundles are usually strong and well worth a look.

Game.co.uk is very hit and miss, but it had some excellent offers around Black Friday for console and PlayStation VR bundles. So if you missed out earlier this year, this could be a great chance to get a new PS4 or Xbox with a few games. We’ll highlight any ace software deals we find too and frankly ignore the waves of shoddy discounts that’ll be around too. Wolfenstein 2 for £19.99 was one of the better deals we saw on Black Friday – we’ll take Assassin’s Creed: Origins for that price on Boxing Day thank you very much, Game. Yeah?

CDKeys.com is one of the cheapest places on the net for PC games all year round and offer fantastic prices followed by instant delivery of the code, with major platforms like Steam, uPlay, Origins and Battlenet supported. It’s not all about the PC crowd though as CDKeys have some of the best deals going on PS Plus and Xbox Live Gold memberships too. Expect discounts on the lot come boxing Day.

The Zavvi Boxing Day sales are usually worth a look, especially for film and TV fans. Zavvi has a huge range of exclusive steelbook editions of movies old and new too. Console bundles are a bit hit and miss, but they had a couple of decent ones on Black Friday. Pop culture merchandise is a big seller there too.

Mobiles.co.uk is taking advantage of the growing trend to buy and upgrade phone contracts online rather than on the highstreet. This site offered the very best mobile phone deals back on Black Friday so you can expect more of the same from this trusted mobile phone seller.

Amazon Echo Dot (was £49.99) now £34.99 @ Very
The Echo Dot is rapidly becoming one of Amazon’ most popular devices and the most recognisable smart speaker in the world.

Stock is low right now, but you can still order at this super low price, which we’d do before it goes back up to £50. It’s the same price at Amazon, but out of stock for now.View Deal
