It’s the last chance to grab a bargain this year, and there’s plenty of them to snap up

(The Independent)

The Boxing Day sales are often the best time of the year to bag a bargain. While the event is usually synonymous with queues of people standing in line at high street shops in the early hours of the morning, it has now also become a huge online shopping affair.

While many in-store sales have been scuppered due to Tier 3 and 4 restrictions across of the country, the online deals are bigger than ever as the pandemic has inspired a surge in online shopping.

It’s the perfect opportunity curl up on the sofa in your new Christmas pyjamas and browse the offers with a cup of tea in hand, and enjoy your purchases delivered straight to your doorstep.

John Lewis

This smartwatch has an impressive number of functions to aid everyday tasks, from being a fitness tracker, to receiving calls and texts, and even reading your emails. With £200 off, it’s a deal too good to miss. The later model, the Apple Watch Series 6, won the best buy award in our review of the best smartwatches. The Independent’s technology critic, David Phelan, said: “The Apple watch is easily the classiest smartwatch with gorgeous design and immaculate build quality. It’s easy to control how many (or better, how few) emails, texts, calls or other notifications come through to your wrist. Battery life is enough to get you through a full day.”

Nintendo switch lite (turquoise) Animal Crossing: Was £229.99, now £209.99, Amazon

Nintendo
Nintendo

If Santa didn’t deliver the Nintendo switch lite on Christmas day, snap up this deal on Amazon where you’ll save nearly 10 per cent on the console. Although it’s not a huge saving, discounted switch models always sell out fast.

While the original switch console is designed to connect to your TV, despite its portability, the lite version is designed for hand-held use only. The Independent’s technology editor and avid gamer, Andrew Griffin, describes the Nintendo switch lite as “a cheaper and lighter version (of the original) that can be carried around. It will suit anyone on a budget, with limited space or who never wants to play it on their TV anyway.”

This bundle comes with Animal Crossing too, which has been a popular game throughout lockdown and three months Nintendo Online membership so you can access all Nintendo games and play with friends and rivals.

Apple AirPods with charging case: Was £159, now £124, Very

Very
Very

David Phelan, our technology critic, rated these highly in his IndyBest review of the best wireless earbuds, saying: “Apple’s distinctive earbuds have been massively successful since they first launched and they remain even now some of the very lightest in-ears you can find.

“The design is unchanged since day one, but improved electronics inside mean that you can say, ‘Hey, Siri’ to invoke the virtual assistant without even touching the earbuds,” he added.

He also rated the pro version of the AirPods which are on sale too, down from £249 to £198, but still commended the standard AirPods for their sound quality:

“The fit is slightly different from the pro – there’s no silicone ear tip – and there’s no noise-cancelling. Even so, audio quality is very good, as is call quality, which works even if you only use one earbud.”

The earlier third generation model impressed our reviewer in our round-up of the best smart speakers. They said: “It can do all the Alexa-related stuff of the most advanced speakers such as answering questions, turning smart home gadgets on or off, and so on. Radio, podcasts and audio books all sound good, with clear vocals. Echo devices can make audio calls to one another and these work well, too.” We imagine this latest version is even more impressive.

How long do Boxing Day sales last?

The Boxing Day and January sales are the last of the year, and your final opportunity to snap up a bargain before Amazon Prime Day comes around again, traditionally held in the summer, and Black Friday in November.

While Boxing Day sales traditionally begin on, you guessed it, Boxing Day, in recent years many retailers have started to kick off their deals earlier, some even before Christmas Day, which we saw happen again this year.

Many of these deals will then continue for most of January, with some discounts getting even better as the month progresses, as retailers will be keen to get rid of stock. However, some retailers only host flash, one-day sales, such as Feel Unique.

How to get the best Boxing Day deals

It’s easy to get sucked into going crazy, buying everything you set eyes on, but it’s important to exercise restraint and stick to a list to save you feeling regretful days later.

We’d recommend researching products you're keen to buy beforehand, so you can tell if a good deal is too good to be true or worth splashing out on.

You can use sites such as PriceSpy or CamelCamelCamel to check the original price of products, so you can see how worthwhile a deal really is before you buy.

Make a list and stick to a budget, try to avoid buying items you don’t need and check the return policies and terms and conditions before you buy.

Tips for Boxing Day sales shopping online

With online shopping as the main outlet for retail therapy in 2020, there’s a few ways to get ahead of the sales and ensure you don’t miss out any offers.

For big sites such as Amazon and John Lewis & Partners, create an account to make buying items a more seamless process as your address and delivery details will already be saved. We’d also recommend signing up for an Amazon Prime membership, costing £7.99 a month, which offers same day and next day delivery on selected products. Amazon also offers a free 30 day trial for Prime, so you could sign up before Boxing Day and cancel after making the most of the sale, without being charged.

Email newsletters are another way brands notify their customers of early bird deals to shop before anyone else, so if you have a favourite store, it’d be worth signing up to skip the mad rush. Some also offer discount codes within these newsletters that’s worth keeping an eye out for.

With that said, be extra cautious with emails you receive during the sales period to ensure they’re legitimate and won’t lead you to a link that’s not genuine.

Lastly, it’s always a good idea to make sure your anti-malware software is up to date when shopping online.

Which stores are taking part in Boxing Day sales?

Below is some of the retailers to watch out for and quick links to their pages, with huge discounts expected:

Amazon – Last year the online retailer was one of the biggest taking part in the Boxing Day sales, which it calls its End of Year sale, with huge reductions on everything from tech to toys.

AO – The online electrical retailer is expected to be offering huge deals on its products, from appliances and TVs to smart home products.

Argos – We’re expecting to see deals appearing online across technology, home and toys.

Apple – While the tech giant is known for not participating in sales, it’s likely there will be huge savings to be had on Macbooks, iPhones and iPads via third party retailers.

Asos – Home to more than 850 brands, Asos is well-loved for its huge sales across fashion and beauty. It currently has a pre-Christmas sale on offer, with discounts of up to 50 per cent on “gift-worthy items”, which include jumpers, bags and shirts.

Anthropologie – Well loved for its fashion, homewares and furniture, last year Anthropologie offered as much as 50 per cent off selected lines and we predict something similar for 2020.

Boots – Last year the health and beauty retailer had up to 50 per cent off fragrance, make-up, skincare and electricals.

Currys PC World – This Boxing Day, we expect Currys PC World to offer exciting deals across top brands in tech and hope appliances.

DFS – Looking to invest in a new sofa? Hold out for DFS's sale, as it offered up to 50 per cent off selected lines last year.

Debenhams – Known for impressive discounts during Black Friday and Boxing Day sales, expect slashed prices on thousands of products. It's already offering up to 70 per cent off in its closing down sale.

Emma Mattress – We all need a good night's sleep after the madness of Christmas, so now is the time to treat yourself to a new mattress in this sale. Last year, Emma offered 45 per cent off everything.

Habitat – Homeware company Habitat has already launched its sale with up to 50 per cent off selected lines.

H&M – The fashion brand slashed its prices by 50 per cent on its fashion and homewares in its 2019 Boxing Day sale. It currently has up to 50 per cent off across selected items.

House of Fraser – The department store kicked off last year’s discounts with 50 per cent off a range of its lines, including women's, men's, beauty, home and kids. Right now you can shop its pre- Christmas sale with up to 50 per cent off fashion, kids, home and beauty and 20 per cent of full-price items with the code “GIFT20”.

John Lewis & Partners – Last year, John Lewis & Partners’s clearance sale included fashion, tech, electricals and beauty. It also upheld its Never Knowingly Undersold price match pledge and we’re hoping for the same for 2020.

M&S – During last year's Boxing Day sales, M&S offered up to 50 per cent off selected furniture, cookware, fashion and beauty products.

Next – A big hit with shoppers, Next's sale usually starts at 6am on Boxing Day and continued into January last year. Make sure you set your alarms as we’re expecting something similar this year.

River Island – In River Island’s January sale there was a huge 70 per cent off selected lines, so have your shopping basket ready for this year.
