Boxing Day Sales

Boxing Day is celebrated the day after Christmas in many countries, including Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom. While origins of the holiday are debated, a popular belief is that Boxing Day comes from a tradition of the wealthy gifting boxes filled with goods to their servants as a token of appreciation for their work on Christmas Day.

Today, Boxing Day traditions can include fox hunting, drinking at the local pub and of course, shopping some of the biggest discounts of the year from top retailers. So...consider this shopping day your reward for surviving the hectic holiday celebrations!

Here's what to know before the big day.

  • Deals can start early and end late. Some retailers may offer one-day sales on December 26, but it's very common for deals to launch on Christmas Eve and last through the new year. But don't wait too long — inventory runs out fast when deals are good!
  • Single-item discounts are common. While apparel retailers tend to offer discounts site wide, you'll likely see discounts on select items, especially electronics.
  • Look to department stores. For wide-ranging deals, visit department stores like John Lewis or Harrods. Everything from home goods to baby gear is discounted.

As an international shopper, Boxing Day savings are easy to access with Borderlinx by your side. Use your U.K. and Germany address at retailer checkout this holiday for the best post-Christmas sales retailers have to offer.
