The Boxing Day Deals Guide 2012 – Where are all the good deals?

By on

Boxing Day is here! The day where all the stores sell a lot of their products at discounted prices. This year, given the rise of online shopping, many of the stores have extended the deals to their online stores in addition to their retail outlets – so you can even shop while watching or listening to the Boxing Day Cricket Match happening at the MCG.

We’re keeping a tab on Boxing Day specials, and we will update this post accordingly. But here are some of the specials you should keep an eye for. Some expire today, most are usually for a week or more (especially with David Jones and Myer).

If you have found some deals elsewhere, do share – everyone loves a bargain.
