Outdoor Lounge

Like most Australians, you’re probably shopping for gifts right now, navigating sales and end of year “bargains”. But smart shoppers may be wondering if they should wait until after the mad rush of Christmas shopping is over, to grab the best Boxing day deals. We expect some popular retailers could follow last year’s trends and offer savings of anywhere between 10% and 75% off regular retail prices during the Boxing Day sales.

Here are some of our predictions for 2015 Boxing Day sales based off last year’s sales:

  • Domayne – 50% – Deals on lounges, outdoor dining, and bedding could save you 30% to 50%
  • Harvey Norman – 40% – Up to 40% on laptops and tablets as well as outdoor furniture and barbeques
  • Freedom – 30% – Soft furnishings, 15% to 20% off lighting and 50% off small deco items
  • IKEA – 50% – Outdoor dining, rugs, kids rooms and home décor saving you 20% to 75%
  • Myer – 50% – Selected bed linen, kitchenware, 30% off selected indoor furniture, 45% off selected beds
  • David Jones – 25% – Discounts on white goods and up to 50% off fashion, accessories, and shoes
  • Sheridan – 50% – Selected styles of their luxurious bedroom and bath collections up to 50% off
  • Anaconda – 40% – Outdoor furniture, tents, bikes, clothing, stoves

Before you hit the shops on Boxing Day, it pays to be organised, have a plan, and stick to it. Here are some strategies you might consider:

  • Set a budget and make a list of what you’re hoping to find.
  • Wear comfortable clothes and carry a snack.
  • Take a backpack so you can put your small purchases away and have your hands free.
  • Hit the stores in the order that they open so you can snap up the best bargains before they run out. Some stores open as early as 6 AM, so get out early!
  • Look out for one off deals in store, but don’t stray too far from your list.
  • Be sure to check out the sales online; the inventory is usually the same and you might run across a few online only specials.
  • Check online to see whether there are greater bargains available on Gumtree.

If the prospect of scoring a spectacular Boxing Day bargain isn’t enough motivation for you to squeeze into that tight parking spot and brave the mad crowds, then consider heading to Gumtree for a smart buy any time of year. In fact, the average Gumtree user can save almost 50% off the retail price by buying something new or second hand. Our recent survey reveals around half of all Australians would be happy to receive a second hand gift for Christmas. Become a Second Hand Santa this year and use your savings to buy something for yourself in the new year.

  1. My Gumtree has gone from a small Gumtree to a very big Gumtree and it keeps on growing.
    An amazing way to buy and sell almost anything.
    I wonder if our ex Prime Minister found the item while on the front bench.
    At least Tony knows how to save big bucks.
