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.
