Amazon Boxing Day sale 2023 in Australia: 40+ tech deals to shop in the new year

Boxing Day sales might have come and gone, but there's always a deal to snatch up on Amazon.

Now that the Amazon Boxing Day sale has officially wrapped up, we're still finding some big discounts across a range of tech – so you don't have to wait until the 2024 Amazon Prime Day or Amazon Black Friday sale in Australia, to snatch up a bargain.

Whether you're looking for that perfect birthday gift, or you want to get well ahead of your 2024 Christmas shopping, there's deals below that will suit any tech-lover in your life. From headphones to smart home, laptops to gaming – there's 40+ deals leftover from Amazon's Boxing Day sales to snatch up in this new year.

Highlights from the 2023 sale include a big saving on the Xbox Series S as well as the Xbox Series X + Diablo IV bundle, with the latter still scoring a AU$150 discount in January 2024. A big range of Amazon-branded devices also got the sales treatment in late December, but as of early January, those offers have expired for the time being, but we're likely to see them appear again once Amazon Prime Day rolls around.

If you want fast and free shipping, Amazon Prime is worth looking into. Not only will you be spoiled with the shopping perks, including exclusive discounts during sales periods, but you can also stream great shows and movies through Prime Video. There's also a 30-day free trial to test the service out before committing your hard earned cash to a new subscription.

A built-in 4K Blu-ray player and support for Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision also makes this console a multimedia powerhouse.

Xbox Series X|S controller | AU$89.95 from AU$66 (save up to AU$23.95)

This Xbox controller almost always gets a discount during major sales, but different colours tend to be priced differently. This time around, the black and white colour options are available for AU$66, which is just five cents more than Black Friday. While not the lowest price – that was AU$52.50 for the red controller back in May – it could still be a good time to pick up an extra gamepad or two for a reasonable price.

The earbuds are currently AU$345 on Amazon, which is a fair bit more than their lowest Amazon price of AU$293, which was available earlier in December.

Garmin Epix (Gen 2, Sapphire) | AU$1,699 from AU$847 (save AU$851)

It offers accurate GPS, excellent maps and a huge array of workout tracking – runners, cyclists and swimmers are particularly well catered for.

We rate the Fujifilm Instax Mini 12 as the best instant camera you can buy, and it's currently available from just AU$94 on Amazon across the range of colours. It's an easy-to-use instant camera that's particularly good for parties, and we think would make an excellent gift at any time of year for a snap-happy youngster.

Canon PowerShot V10AU$699AU$535.46

Canon PowerShot V10 | AU$699 AU$535.46 (save AU$163.54)

What you're giving up is high-resolution EVF and rear LCD screen from those premium models. Still, this is a lot of camera for this discounted price for a single-lens kit.

Appliances

Breville The Infuser (BES840) |AU$899AU$347

Breville The Infuser (BES840) | AU$899 AU$347 (save AU$552)

While Amazon's listed RRP on this slimline espresso machine is a little inflated (you can usually find it for AU$529), the discount here is still a compelling one, and even beats the Black Friday price of AU$399. If you want a manual coffee machine that does shots and milk, this one won't take up much space and is a popular cheaper option.

Amazon Boxing Day Sale 2023: What you need to know

When will the Amazon Boxing Day 2023 sale start?

As mentioned above, previous years have shown us that we can expect Amazon Australia to officially launch its Boxing Day sale well before December 26. Last year it kicked off on December 23, so expect the same to happen again this year.

December 23 was a Friday last year, so chances are Amazon might continue that tradition and begin its Aussie Boxing Day sale on Friday, December 22. We have no official word on that yet, though, so this is just speculation and we'll update this page as soon as we know more.

When will Amazon's Boxing Day sales end?

Looking at previous years in order to know what to expect for Amazon's Boxing Day sale in 2023, we have a suspicion that the sale will last until December 28, as it did in 2022, 2021 and 2020. 

Again, that is still speculation on our part, but we're quite sure that Amazon will continue to offer some excellent discounts into the new year and pivot its offers into January sales to ring in the new year. 

You'll find the best deals won't hold over in this manner, however, as we've seen recently for example with Black Friday and Cyber Monday where some of the biggest savings ended on November 27 (aka Cyber Monday). 

This means that if you spot a deal that's right for you during the Boxing Day sale event, don't hesitate to snap it up before it's gone!

Amazon Boxing Day 2023 sales: the deals to expect

We’ve been covering Boxing Day sales in Australia for a while now, so we’ve got a fair understanding of what to expect in terms of deals and products. But we can also look at the much more recent Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales too and extrapolate from Amazon’s latest offers. 

So what should we be looking for during Amazon's Boxing Day sale in 2023? We've taken a look at some key categories below to break it down.

Video game deals

During last year's Boxing Day sale, we didn't see the kinds of savings opportunities we would have hoped for on any of the top gaming consoles, although the recent Black Friday sale proved that we might be able to see some decent discounts on the latest consoles, including the Nintendo Switch OLED

Amazon also had an actual discount on the Oculus (now Meta) Quest 2, which was an interesting deviation from offering store credit instead of a price cut. Whether that happens again is anyone’s guess, but here’s hoping.

Next-gen gaming consoles for both PlayStation and Xbox were non-factors during previous Boxing Day sales due to stock issues but that is no longer the case. We've already seen some discounts on both the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X emerge during Black Friday weekend via Amazon, but the PS5 offers never last long, usually getting snapped up within minutes if not hours.

For Xbox, the digital-only, slightly lower specced Xbox Series S managed to land an AU$100 discount during the recent Black Friday sales, but the premium Xbox Series X console was entirely unsighted over this period. Yet suddenly as soon as these sales ended, the top-range Xbox appeared with stock. Unfortunately, it's unlikely we can hope for a chance to save on the Xbox Series X during Amazon's Black Friday sales, but we can certainly hope to see similar or better savings on offer for the cheaper alternative in the Series S.

Computing and laptop deals

Boxing Day, like Black Friday, represents one of the best chances of any given year to save a bundle on some of the best computers, laptops and peripherals, and Amazon has plenty to offer in this space. During last year's Amazon Boxing Day sales, we saw some solid savings of over AU$500 on some impressively specced laptops, including both gaming options and more work-friendly machines. 

We hope for even better this year on this front with bonza savings on premium hardware items, but we can also expect some of the better accessories from the likes of Razer and Logitech to land solid discounts as we saw during Black Friday this year.

Smartphone and tablet deals

Savings get particularly interesting on Boxing Day when it comes to smartphones and tablets, and Amazon is almost sure to lead in this category with opportunities to save on its Kindle ereader models. Last year’s Boxing Day sales from Amazon also saw some opportunities to save on Samsung handsets, including the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4, and Samsung tablets too, so we can look forward to savings on the newer range, including the foldables this year. 

We’d love to see savings on Apple iPhone models too, but both Black Friday and last year’s Boxing Day sales don’t give us too much reason to hope for generous (or any) discounts on these ones. Still, there's a good chance that older models like the iPhone 13 family – if in stock – will see some decent discounts.

Smart home and appliances deals

Savings on quality smart home tech and appliances during Amazon’s Boxing Day sales are almost a sure thing, especially given that the retail giant is sure to discount its own Echo products.
