Boxing Day 2015

It seems like Boxing Day is no longer what it used to be. Nevertheless, if deals come up, please post/share here.

Black Friday has taken over. Boxing Day as far as shopping doesn't exist in the US, amiright?

We have embraced Black Friday since many businesses up here have started to participate.

Don't think it's the American influence that's causing this trend. More like retailers want to grab everyone's holiday money before they all go broke.

Even going through the Boxing Day prep at work, it seems like there's shit all for deals. Hell, some of the stuff that are on sale are currently cheaper right now than they will be come the 26th.

Protip: If you want Apple products, buy them now. Even though they're on sale for Boxing Day, most products are actually cheaper right now than they will be at the end of this week.

I'll be at Bestbuy early hoping the shit I want is on sale.

Boxing Day is going downhill because of the greedy businesses.. It started with Boxing WEEK and now fucking greedy car dealers have "Boxing MONTH"

Whenever I mention Boxing Day, people laugh and say "Remember the A&B Sound days? Those were great deals on the 26th."

The few Big Box Boxing Day flyers that I have seen have:

1) nothing of interest
2) nothing particularly cheap

The only eye catching deal I have seen so far is actually our forum sponsor -- Sounds Good's -- pre-boxing day sale. Those $8 Pioneer 6x9 speakers are super attractive, but my car doesn't take 6x9 speakers...

Of course Boxing Day sucks because it seems like everyone is after gadgets and electronics. Margins on electronics are pretty thin these days and for the latest stuff, like drones or 3D printers, there's Aliexpress and other Chinese e-commerce sites.

Boxing week is still a decent time to buy clothes as retailers will need to clear the winter inventory to make way for spring/summer merchandise. You can definitely score deals on things like suits and shoes if you're patient and savvy.

Pretty much. Already have a couple things picked out at work and saved for Boxing Day, though. The advantage of seeing clearance prices before anyone else. Got a powerful Asus laptop and a new LG 21:9 monitor waiting for me.

Yeah, been keeping an eye out locally for a new suit. There are a couple places here that will be dropping prices rather dramatically that I'll try to take advantage of.

I bought Christmas presents to give to people from Black Friday sales
I like how Canada is adopting BF sales.
I also like how Amazon.ca is slowly getting more good stuff (things you normally see on Amazon.com) to buy.

Yup. I can't count how many $5 bluray movies I've purchased on Boxing Day that are still sitting in their plastic wrap. And it's not like they're shitty movies, either.

I hope Canada just drops boxing day soon.
Black Friday is already beating boxing day sales volume wise for a lot of retailers.
Would be nice for retail workers to just "get a break" from Dec 25th and onwards.
Black Friday has already made the month of November super hectic.
