Boxing Day

The Boxing Day Sales Are Online

The Boxing Day Sales have begun and here are the retailers I usually shop at :

Amazon.ca has Boxing Week specials on various item, notably film boxed sets, drones and various other products.

Best Buy Canada is offering quite a few items on sale, including a large amount of televisions. Not many blu-rays or DVDs but there are a few turntables.

The Brick is offering discounts of Home Electronics including televisions and home audio, including a Sony USB turntable and Sylvania Nostalgia 5-in-1 Music Centre. The latter is discounted, considerably.

Chapters / Indigo is offering up to 50% off various books and merchandise, with an additional 20% if you use Masterpass. This offer ends on the 31st.

HMV Canada is pretty much Canada’s largest remaining entertainment store chain. They offer good deals on blu-rays, boxed sets, vinyl and film/music memorabilia. But always do some comparison shopping. And if you find something today, don’t forget to use coupon code HMV2016 to save $5 on shipping and handling on orders over $25.

Henry’s is a chain that primary sells cameras and accessories. But they also sell drones and video camera accessories. Youtubers may find a deal or two here.

Ikea Canada doesn’t sell televisions or home theatre or audio items. But they do sell shelves and accessories. They are currently offering free shipping on orders over $50 that are placed today, December 25th, 2016. I particularly like the Gladsax picture frame, which is used to frame LP covers.

Like many of Canadian’s major retailers, Leons is mostly offering discounts on televisions. But there are deals to be had in Home Theatre & Entertainment. Shop around for the best deals.

Long & McQuade is a music instrument and accessory store. And they are will be having specials on quite a few item from December 16th to December 31st, 2016. If you’re a musician, you might want to check them out.

Microsoft Canadaicon‘s Boxing Week sale features PCs, the Surface, the X-Box and various accessories.

Newegg.ca had quite a few Boxing day discounts on computers, computer accessories, gaming systems and home entertainment systems. And like Chapters/Indigo they are offering a discount on purchases made with Masterpass, this time $25 off purchases over $200 using coupon code MPBOX25 until Midnight PST December 28th, 2016. Vinyl fans should note that they offer a considerable amount of turntables and accessories.

Sears Canada is offering quite a few items on sale, including headphones ((12/25 – 12/28) Beats By dre headphones – white $129.97) and other daily discounts on specific products. Look for specials in the Portable & Home Audio and Home Theatre, especially on the 26th.

The Source has televisions, computers, tablets, cameras and accessories on sale. But i’ve seen better prices for some of their sale items on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. And their record players are pretty much the same price as Newegg Canada.

Boxing Week Sales Have Begun

These stores have either begun offering Boxing Week deals are are offering previews in regards to they Boxing Day or Boxing Week Sales :

Why Wait In Line ?

Seriously, before you go out and wait in line for hours to get into a crowded electronics superstore, look online for deals. You could find the very product you’re looking for, for the same price or less.

There are some pretty decent deals going on at Amazon.ca, Best Buy Canada, chapters.indigo.ca , Dell Canada, Future Shop, iTunesicon, Kobo Books, iNetVideo Canada (Click Here to shop iNetVideo.ca Now!), Newegg.ca, Sears.ca, Shop.ca, Sony Canada (Sony Boxing Week Blowout Deals! Save up to $700. Limited time & while supplies last.), The Source and Tigerdirect.caicon.

Best Buy Canada and Future Shop shoppers did encounter some glitches last night but the sites say these issues have been dealt with.

Boxing Day Sales Start Tonight

You’ll notice that most retailers are starting their boxing day sales as early as 8pm tonight, like Best Buy, Future Shop and The Source. But some have already started offering Boxing Week specials like iTunesicon and Amazon.ca, where you can find deep discounts on music and film.

I just took advantage of this sale to upgrade my X-Men collection to blu-ray by placing an order for the X-Men Trilogy and X-Men: First Class. It was way too tempting.

Also tempting are those $50 iTunesicon gift cards that are being offered for $39 at Best Buy Canada and Future Shop stores, as part of their boxing day sales, though I’m still weighing my options when it comes to a streaming player for my television.

BTW, if you’re looking for gift cards, my guide is online and will be expanded shortly.
