Boxing Day Sales 2015 Opening Times And Best Deals At Amazon, Currys, PC World

Spread the love

The Boxing Day Sales are nearly here and Saturday the 26 December is already looking to one of the biggest shopping days of the year.

Whether you’re after a new laptop, a pair of new headphones or fancy jumping onto the next-generation bandwagon with a PS4 or Xbox One then Boxing Day and the January Sales are the time for you to splash out.

After the mammoth success of Black Friday, expect Boxing Day to be more of the same with huge discounts on video games, gadgets, accessories and more.

Black Friday saw shoppers spend a record £1.1bn over that weekend with the average online transaction of a customer rising to a whopping £100.

Of course with the New Year just around the corner people will be looking to make the most of their ‘fresh start’ by splashing out on a new laptop, smartphone or gadget.

With every major retailer getting on board from Amazon to Argos and Game to John Lewis the chances are that you might not even have to leave the house with many of their best high street deals now becoming available online as well.

Following Game’s crashing profit forecast the retailer will be one of many who are hoping that Boxing Day and the January Sales will turn around their collective fortunes as customers move away from the conventional High Street model of shopping.

Amazon
Amazon, not one to be beaten by the high street is of course having a Boxing Day Sale, but it being Amazon they’ve decided to go the extra mile. The online retailer is holding a week’s worth of deals to celebrate Christmas and then the New Year. This includes the same Daily Deals that’ll last just 12 hours, the lightning deals that’ll run for a few hours and then the longer week-long bargains that’ll be running until New Year’s Eve.

GAME
Yes, Game’s had a tough year but that doesn’t mean that it’s about to start tightening the margins for consumers. Instead the retailer are offering up to 50 per cent off some of the biggest games available right now as well as a whole host of great PS4 and Xbox One bundles to try and persuade you to upgrade from your 360 or PS3.

Currys and PC World
Currys and PC World are of course holding both Boxing Day Sales and January Sales so whether you’re after a new TV or laptop the likelihood is that either of these are going to be the places for you. The retailer are also one of the few places that you’ll be able to get a discounted Apple Watch.

Currys are currently offering the Apple Watch Sport for £249, giving you a very respectful £50 off the price of Apple’s first smartwatch. Perhaps you’re in the running for a new laptop? Well you can get the superb HP Pavilion x360 11-k151sa 11.6″ 2 in 1 laptop for just £249 as well making it the perfect treat for work or uni.

Argos
Last year’s sale saw discounts of up to 60% across the store. This year Argos is offering half price on thousands of toys, as well as additional savings on TVs, games consoles and tech gadgets.

Its Boxing Day sale will begin bang on Christmas Day this year… so don’t miss out.

Tesco
Who’d have thought it but Tesco’s January Sale might just be the place to bag yourself some of the latest gadgets including games consoles, printers, laptops and more.

With some items now half price this is what can only be described as a fire sale so if you’re looking for anything in particular than we’d get cracking because Tesco won’t be replacing the stock for any of these items so once they’re gone, they’re gone.

John Lewis
John Lewis are certainly being quieter about Boxing Day than they were about Black Friday, but that doesn’t mean they won’t be taking part in either Boxing Day or the January Sales. In fact we’d bet money (not real money of course) that John Lewis will be getting in on the big sales.

    Bowers & Wilkins P5 Wireless
    Bowers & Wilkins know a thing or two about making headphones. You’ll be hard pressed to find a single commuter journey where there isn’t someone wearing a pair of their P3 headphones. Well the P5’s are the bigger wire-free sibling and trust us, they’re worth the upgrade. With two days of commuting battery, the same incredible sound and all the style of a Tom Ford suit the P5’s are the headphones to buy this year.

    BeoPlay H8 Wireless Headphones
    B&O Play’s rise to audiophile royalty has been swift, and it’s no wonder. Aimed at a younger clientele, Bang and Olufsen’s ultra-premium brand has placed stunning levels of focus on usable design. The H8’s are indeed stunning to look at but they’re packed with tech including touch-sensitive controls, Bluetooth 4.0 and over a day’s wireless battery life. They’re not cheap, but then that’s the point.

    Parrot Zik 3
    When Parrot aren’t making drones they’re also making some of the best headphones money can buy. Leaning heavily on the technology these come with a wish list of features: touch sensitive controls, iPhone app control, noise cancelling, wireless charging, USB playback support and a removable battery. It’s hard to think of a pair that can tick as many boxes.

    Sennheiser Momentum 2.0
    Sennheiser have always been known for quality, but what their headphones have sometimes lacked is the style to make them truly iconic. The Momentum 2.0 rather handily solves this problem by not only looking stunning but also sounding pretty amazing too. Want great high’s and mids with a firm but not imposing bass then these are the cans for you.

    Sennheiser Urbanite
    Subjectively the Sennheiser Urbanites are among our favourite-looking headphones on the market, they sound great in most situations and they’re clearly built to last. They aren’t Beats-flashy, and they’re not quite “a sea of white Zinfandel”. They’re more like a mature, tasty bottled craft beer with a cool label.

    RHA T10i
    The RHA T10i headphones are ruthless, or at least they would be if they were a human being. They’re cold, calculated metal design make them an imposing first sight when you open the box but then, you haven’t bought a pair of RHA headphones just for the looks. They sound utterly precise (and excellent).

    Bose QuietComfort 20i
    These in-ear headphones are among the best we’ve ever tested – and you’d hope so, because at £259 they aren’t cheap. What you get for your money is a combination of great, rich basic sound, brilliant noise-cancelling tech and the most comfortable fit you can find without involving a custom-made solution.

    These headphones have won fans all around the world for one simple reason: for this price (£50) you can’t do better. They sound excellent, fold up neatly to stow away in a bag, come with a basic cable and a cable with a built-in three-button remote and won’t leave you bereft if you lose or break them.

    Sony MDR-HW700DS

Plug these into your 4K TV and you’ll be presented with nine channels of crystal clear sound using Sony’s VirtualPhones Technology.

    Jaybird Freedom Sprint
    These resilient, water-resistant Bluetooth headphones are designed for exercise, and come with a set of neat ear-moulding foam inserts to keep them tightly in place when you’re running. For £105 it’s hard to find a better pair of sport earbuds.
