According to the Australian Retailers Association (ASA), Australians spent just over $2.3 billion on Boxing Day last year– $125 million online and the rest in stores.
The ASA predicts that number will rise by 5% this year– up to $2.41 billion. That means a lot more shoppers will be out there, potentially clawing eyes out for that last pair of discounted heels or shorts. It's called Boxing Day for a reason.
For those who find pleasure in flocking to the shopping centres, we admire your dedication. And your stamina.
However, if you crave a little more peace post-Christmas, there is an abundance of online Boxing Day sales ready to be taken advantage of. Hot tip– most stores say their best prices are online.
We've wrapped up the best online Boxing Day sales so you don't have to leave your couch (or get out of your pyjamas).
There’s no shortage of bargains in the fashion realm. Online giant ASOS will have to 70% off clothing and accessories for men and women, and although boohoo.com may not be the first place you run to for menswear, you may want to reconsider– the brand has up to 50% off menswear. Otherwise, The Iconic has up to 50% off everything, too.

Two– keep an eye out on the social media channels of your favourite brands. You may find more hints about a store's upcoming sale.
