Amazon AU Boxing Day sale 2023: the best deals and discounts still available to shop in January


Every Aussie retailer worth its salt has a Boxing Day sale, and that of course includes one of the biggest of them all: Amazon. 

As we expected, the online retail giant started its Boxing Day sale early on December 22, and it ended on December 27. As we predicted, there are still some excellent offers available, which are ending soon, so this may be your last chance to bag a bargain. 

You could find yourself or a loved one a wonderful gift to kickstart the new year or pick up some back-to-school supplies ahead of the new academic year to save on things like laptops and tablets. There are record-low prices on some items, including Xbox game consoles, plus Amazon's own Echo smart devices and Fire TV Sticks are going real cheap too.

And, though you don't need to be an Amazon Prime member in order to bag a bargain on Boxing Day, there are benefits to being one, including free shipping and next-day delivery to select post codes, along with access to a number of other Amazon services. 

Best of all, Amazon offers a 30-day free trial, so it won't even cost you anything. Find out more at the link below.

Amazon's Boxing Day sales are available to all shoppers, but there can occasionally be exclusive deals for Primer members. Plus, if products are sold or shipped by Amazon AU, you can benefit from free next-day delivery. Because of this, we believe it's a good idea to become a Prime member during the sales period. An Amazon Prime subscription gets you free delivery on millions of items, and best of all, if you haven't previously been a member, you can get all the benefits within its 30-day free trial. A subscription will also grant you access to a number of other Amazon services, including Prime Video, Prime Reading and Prime Gaming.

Boxing Day sales 2023: when do they start?

Boxing Day sales traditionally begin from December 26, the day after Christmas Day. In recent years, however, retailers have been adjusting how they treat the sales period. Not only do Boxing Day sales usually run until at least the end of the year (and occasionally into the first few days of the New Year) they also occasionally start earlier than Boxing Day itself. 

Which stores have Boxing Day sales?

We expect the vast majority of stores in Australia to have Boxing Day deals, both in store and online. We can be pretty sure the usual slew of big retailers will have some great Boxing Day deals on a range of tech. 

These retailers include Amazon, The Good Guys, JB Hi-Fi, Bing Lee, Harvey Norman, Myer, Appliances Online and many more. 

Are Boxing Day sales better than Black Friday?

It depends on the retailer and what you’re shopping for. While Boxing Day definitely presents a chance to make some big savings on a range of products, tech has traditionally been discounted more on Black Friday. Boxing Day deals tend to be more attractive on items such as fashion and homewares. 

However, you should still be able to take advantage of Boxing Day deals on things such as TVs, headphones and games. We’ll be checking all the major online retailers for the latest Boxing Day deals on tech and home appliances at Amazon, and adding them to this page.
