It might now be early January 2024, but there's still time to pick up a discount in Australia's annual Boxing Day sales. Retailers such as The Good Guys, JB Hi-Fi and even Amazon all have deals carrying on into the New Year, though you might not have much time left to pick up deals on TVs, phones, laptops, cameras, smart home devices and more as the sales start to come to an official close.

So what were the highlights? Well, during the height of the sale, the Xbox Series X with Diablo IV hit a discounted price of AU$659. That deal has since finished, but you can still nab the Xbox Series X bundle for a little more at AU$699.

There's stacks of savings available for non-gamers still running too – a range of Dyson vacuums are on sale, or you can pick up some smart plugs from just AU$15. That's just the beginning though, as we've found 30+ deals you can shop right now.

TechRadar's Aussie team is here, scouring the web for the best bargains on tech and electronics to be had this time of year, listing the hand-picked ones below in an easy-to-navigate list.

If you miss Boxing Day or the following January sales, your next chance to score a bargain will be during the back to school sales, though these tend to be more inclined to devices such as printers, laptops and other useful gadgets for students and teachers.

Garmin Epix (Gen 2, Sapphire) | AU$1,699 from AU$848 at JB Hi-Fi (save AU$851)

One of the most advanced multi-sport watches around, we gave it 4.5 stars in our Garmin Epix (Gen 2) review for good reason. Practically perfect GPS and maps, very advanced fitness tracking, plenty of metrics and a stunning AMOLED display. It all costs a pretty penny though, so when you can snap it up for under a grand, we'd say it's a good bargain. 

Also available directly from Garmin for AU$849

Canon EOS R50 + RF-S 18-45mm lensAU$1,249AU$1,049 at CameraPro

Canon EOS R50 + RF-S 18-45mm lens | AU$1,249 AU$1,049 at CameraPro (save AU$200 after cashback)

This might not seem like a big discount on this 24.2MP APS-C speedster, but the Canon R50 has an RRP of AU$1,399 elsewhere, so the ticket price at CameraPro is, in itself, low.  4K/30p video oversampled from 6K footage, excellent autofocus capabilities for video and stills, plus bursts of up to 15fps. All in a compact, lightweight body. That's good value for money for an entry-level camera.

Canon EOS R100 + RF18-45mm lensAU$1,099AU$809 on Amazon

Canon EOS R100 + RF18-45mm lens | AU$1,099 AU$809 on Amazon (save AU$290)

The Canon EOS R100 has only been available since May this year, and it's Canon's most affordable RF-mount camera. It's a beginner's camera with a 24MP APS-C sensor, and while that sensor has been around for while now, you'll still be getting Canon's fantastic image quality on a budget. It can shoot 4K video up to 25fps, but it is cropped.

Canon EOS R6 Mark II (body)AU$3,999AU$3,099 on Amazon

Canon EOS R6 Mark II (body) | AU$3,999 AU$3,099 on Amazon (save AU$900)

Our Canon EOS R6 II review gave this camera 4/5 stars, so it's a great mid-range full-framer, with the best of Canon's autofocus capabilities, high speed bursts and 4K video. It also gets a bump in sensor resolution from the original R6, now featuring a 24.4MP full-frame sensor. While Amazon is listing this camera's RRP as AU$4,499, we've typically found it selling for AU$3,999 at other camera retailers, so that's what we've listed here as the RRP.

Dyson Gen5detect Absolute AU$1,299AU$994 at The Good Guys

Dyson Gen5detect Absolute | AU$1,299 AU$994 at The Good Guys (save AU$305)

The Dyson Gen5Detect is one of Dyson't most powerful vacuums yet.

Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute | AU$1,299 AU$697 on Dyson eBay (save AU$602)

Score this vacuum directly from Dyson for AU$697. While it's not as big a discount as we saw on Boxing Day, where this vacuum came down to AU$679 at Dyson's eBay store, it's still a sweet AU$602 discount on a powerful cordless vacuum.

TP-Link Tapo RV10 PlusAU$599AU$315 on Amazon

TP-Link Tapo RV10 Plus | AU$599 AU$315 on Amazon (save AU$284)

If you want a self-emptying robot vacuum cleaner that won't clean out your bank balance, consider the Tapo RV10 Plus. It's not as powerful as the flagship Tapo RV30 Plus, but it's still pretty decent for its price. It will automatically boost suction when it senses a carpet, and it can mop too.

Ecovacs Deebot T10 Plus | AU$1,799 AU$899 at Amazon (save AU$900)

If you want more from your robot vacuum – like... an air freshener – then the Ecovacs Deebot T10 Plus is the model you'll want o go with. It'll set you back AU$1,019 with this discount on Amazon, and along with the ability to spritz some fresh scents into the air, it still performs the humble duties of a typical Ecovacs Deebot vacuum, mopping and vacuuming you floors to keep them dust free and spotless.

Boxing Day sales 2023: key information

When do Boxing Day sales start in 2023?

Officially, Boxing Day is the very next day after Christmas on December 26. Following the festive season, a bunch of retailers offer up solid discounts to make way for new stock arriving in the new year. It was once a single day shopping experience, ending at midnight on December 26, but that’s changed in the last few years.

More and more retailers are kicking off their Boxing Day sales earlier in December, meaning you can shop these offers leading up to and on Christmas Day if you really want to. Similarly, the deals often run past Boxing Day towards the new year, but you might miss a bargain if you wait too long as stock could sell out earlier in the sale.

We recommend keeping an eye on the Boxing Day sales from December 18 if you’re keen to snatch a bargain, so long as it doesn’t interrupt your festive celebrations. The Boxing Day sales are a little too late for a last minute Christmas gift, but are one last chance to nab a bargain before the year’s end.

When do the Boxing Day sales end and January sales begin?

The distinction between Boxing Day sales and January sales are a bit blurred – some retailers switch Boxing Day over to January sales once December 27 arrives, while others will run Boxing Day offers right up until the new year.

It’s still a good plan to get in early for the retailers you want to shop from, as well as the products you want to score – once stock has run out it might not be available again in the January sales.

What is Boxing Day in Australia?

Originating from the 1980s, Boxing Day sales has been a long running tradition in Australia for over 40 years. Before online shopping, customers would wake up early to get in store and snatch up the best deals on December 26 before they ran out.

Brick and mortar stores such as David Jones and Myer were often packed during Boxing Day, but since the inception of online shopping, you no longer have to brave the crowds to get a good deal on the day.

You’ll still want to get in early if you want to make sure you get the deal you desire – stock could be extremely limited or you might only have a short time to snatch a bargain in flash sales. Though we recommend planning ahead by creating a shopping list of most wanted items and what price you’re willing to pay to avoid buyer’s remorse from a spontaneous purchase.

Some sellers won’t do store wide discounts, often opting to highlight selected products in the Boxing Day sales. But anything and everything is prime for a bargain – so keep your eyes peeled on what you want, you could grab it for a fantastic price come December 26.

Is it better to shop during Black Friday or Boxing Day?

There’s a few things to consider when comparing Black Friday and Boxing Day –
