The Amazon Boxing Day sale is now live. So far, it looks mostly like a re-run of the last-minute Christmas deals the retailer had just a few days ago, but there are some new offers live and a final opportunity to snag some of the year's best discounts once again. We've seen up to 70% off almost everything, with particular highlights in laptops, coffee machines, electric toothbrushes, home and beauty items, food, booze, tools and TVs.
We expect many of the current deals to run all the way through from Boxing Day to December 31 - as long as they stay in stock. After this, it's likely the retailer will swap over to its January sales - and you'll be able to find the best offers from that right here, too. Amazon usually offers some of the biggest reductions at this time of year, especially when it comes to electronics. Plus, where it doesn't beat other retailers on price, it'll usually match the Boxing Day sales from other major retailers such as Currys, John Lewis and Argos.
Here, we've rounded up the best deals in the early Amazon Boxing Day sale. Whether you're looking for tech, toys, fashion, beauty, DIY, home and garden, alcohol or other items, we've got you covered.

5 best deals in the Amazon Boxing Day sale
Fire TV Stick Lite:
£29.99 £14.99 at Amazon
Save £15 – This basic Fire TV Stick is back to its Black Friday price for Boxing Day. It may be cheap but it still gives you access to all the popular streaming apps in HD, plus the option to use the voice remote to bark orders at Alexa. The main functionality you lose is the ability to control your TV with the included remote, which isn't a terrible loss when you're paying just £15.
Oral-B Genius Electric Toothbrush:
£279.99 £69.99 at Amazon
Save £210 - This toothbrush is 75%-off - back to its lowest ever price - and is sure to help improve your oral hygiene with five different cleaning modes to choose from and smart position tracking so you know which areas of your mouth need a bit more love.
Kärcher K 2 pressure washer:
£150 £75.89 at Amazon
Save £74.11 - If you're after an affordable pressure washer then you should check out this Kärcher K 2 while it's back down to its lowest ever price. This bundle also includes a home kit with an extra surface cleaner attachment and half a litre of cleaning agent.
Asus 11.6-inch Chromebook Flip C214MA:
£329.99 £149 at Amazon
Save £191 – This is an excellent price for a 2-in-1 laptop in the Amazon Boxing Day sales. These flexible machines are rarely found below the £200 mark so this 50% price cut to £150 is a real highlight. The specification is reasonable for a basic budget laptop, with an Intel processor, 4GB RAM and 32GB storage that will be fine for basic tasks.
Amazon Boxing Day sale: what you need to know
When does the Amazon Boxing Day sale start?
Amazon Boxing Day sales traditionally kick off as you would expect, on December 26. However, this year we were seeing Black Friday offers as early as October and there are still excellent offers flying off the shelves right now.
Not only that, but in recent years, Amazon's Boxing Day sales have started as soon as Christmas Eve. That means we would keep a close eye over the entire Christmas week. It's likely that those Boxing Day deals will merge into January sales in the week after as well.
How long will the Amazon Boxing Day sales last?
The Amazon Boxing Day sales usually taper off a couple of days after Christmas, but you won't be short of discounts in the week between. The January sales usually pick up right where Boxing Day left off, often with the same products discounted as well.
What does that mean for Boxing Day? Well, in short, it means that you need to be careful about which deals you pick up - if you're seeing something that you want, then now is the time to get it if it's a good deal.
Don't forget to use services like CamelCamelCamel to spot whether things have dropped in price too. That's often one of the ways we check to see if you're getting a fair deal.
Last year's best Amazon Boxing Day deals
Fitbit Charge 4:
£129.99 £99.99 at Amazon
The Fitbit Charge 4 is one of the best fitness trackers you can buy today, and was only released earlier this year. It's the first Fitbit Charge to feature on-board GPS to track your outdoor activities without a smartphone. It also offers all-day heart rate tracking, sleep monitoring, contactless payments via Fitbit Pay and a lot more, all in a sleek, lightweight watch.
New Amazon Echo Dot + 6 months Amazon Music Unlimited free:
£49.99 £29.99 at Amazon
Save £20 - The new Amazon Echo Dot tooks its first price cut last month. You can still grab it for just £30 - not bad considering the smart speaker was only released in October and usually comes in at £50. Plus, you're even getting six months of Amazon Music Unlimited for free as well. You're unlikely to find this item cheaper in the Boxing Day sales.
PS5 games from £33.99 at Amazon
Amazon recently discounted a bunch of PS5 games down to £51.99, but we're seeing even bigger price drops available in the Boxing Day sales. You'll find Assassin's Creed: Valhalla, Watch Dogs Legion, Immortals Fenyx Rising, and more up for grabs at some fantastic prices right now.
Shark corded anti-hair wrap vacuum cleaner:
£249.99 £179.99 at Amazon
There's a £70 discount on this Shark anti-hair wrap vacuum cleaner in Amazon's Boxing Day sales - that's an even bigger price drop than earlier today. That's a great price for a flexible vacuum that won't get bogged down with tangled hair.
Sony WH-1000XM3 wireless headphones:
£330 £216 at Amazon
This is close to the lowest deal we've ever seen for these Sony headphones. With over £100 off the original RRP, Amazon is giving you the chance to pick up Sony's excellent, top-of-the-line wireless and noise-cancelling cans for a fraction of the price.
Asus C433 14-inch touchscreen 2-in-1 Chromebook:
£499.99 £398 at Amazon
Save £100 on this 14-inch touchscreen Chromebook, with premium 2-in-1 features that can easily switch the laptop between a conventional clamshell design and a tablet. That's usually a pricey feature and considering you're also getting a larger 14-inch display and 64GB of onboard storage here, this is a great price.
MacBook Pro M1 13-inch laptop:
£1,299 £1,192.24 at Amazon
Save over £100 on the brand new MacBook Pro M1 at Amazon right now. That's an excellent offer considering this model has only been on the shelves for a month or so. You're getting that famed M1 processor under the hood as well as 8GB RAM and a 256GB SSD.
