When are the Boxing Day 2015 deals likely to start?
Traditionally, the Boxing Day sales have been strictly a December 26 affair, with retailers closing early on Christmas Eve to prepare for the clear out.
In recent years, however, it has become more of a week-long (and online) event, with many stores kicking off their sales in mid-December – with a few surprises up their sleeves on the 24th, 25th and 26th.
Fashion stores like River Island, Topshop and ASOS tend to launch their sales on Christmas Day itself – so keep your eyes peeled.
Boots, meanwhile, will be joining Argos.co.uk and Amazon with their Boxing Day sales going live on Christmas Eve.
Getting the best deals
The best way to bag yourself a bargain in the Boxing Day sales is to spend an hour browsing the online stores before their sale starts. Make a note of what items you want, the full price and what you’re willing to pay.
This will reduce the likelihood of impulse buys which many shops depend on and don’t be tempted to overspend!
