We have listed below what we think are probably going to be the best online and / or in-store sales and some tips to make sure you get the best bargains. Please note that at the date of publishing this article a lot of stores are yet to release the details of their 2017 Boxing Day sale so we have listed below some details on what we expect to see in these sales based on prior years in terms of sale commencement dates and discounted products.
Where: In-store and online (www.davidjones.com.au)
When: In-store from Boxing Day, online from Christmas Day. The sale is likely to until late in January 2018.
What to expect: Keep an eye on the David Jones website for details about what’s going to be on sale.

Tips on getting the best Boxing Day bargains
Getting the most out of Boxing Day sales is no easy task, so here are a few quick tips to help you get the most out of the sales.
- Plan ahead – a lot of stores will publish the exact details of their Boxing Day sales ahead of Boxing Day (either on Christmas Day or even some tine before then). Find out when the sale you are looking at starts and finishes. Some online sales will start on Christmas Day – keep an eye out for this and make sure you a clear on exactly which producs will be discounted
- Set a budget and stick to it – we all know how easy it is to overspend at a sale – the big red and white sale signs offering huge discounts suck you in and before you know it you have spent more than what you originally intended to save.
- Keep your eye on the prize – it’s really easy to get distracted in the Boxing Day sales and if you are attending a sale in-store be prepared for it to be crowded. Don’t be distracted and try not to let yourself feel overwhelmed. What the sale commences, be clear in your mind on what you are looking for and head straight for those products.
