Should you Shop on Boxing Day? Here is What to Buy
A lot of people like shopping on Black Friday and Boxing Day to get the latest and best deals. Perhaps, this year, it might be different. Just like on Black Friday, stores will limit the number of people inside. They will also invite shoppers to order online for a curbside pick up or to book a shopping time using their app. According to PWC consumers insight survey, 44% of Canadians are still comfortable shopping in a store. With the number of people testing positive for the virus, the online shopping experience might increase significantly.
Boxing Day is the best time of the year to buy fitness trackers (click here to know which one fits best for your needs), electronics, phones, appliances, and vacuums and save up to 80%! Many stores have already begun to advertise their products, but if you are not buying local, expect delayed on deliveries.
Here are some tips to get the best deals:
- Sign up for retailers’ newsletters
- Seek out for price drop guarantees or best price guarantee
- Make sure you have a good credit card that allows you to shop online without problems
- Leave the item in your “cart”
- Compare before you buy
- SHOP and BUY LOCAL!!!
- Best Buy is the number one place to shop. Sales will start on December 24th at 6 pm. You can find deals on phones, Go Pro, Stand Mixer, and even on Vitamix! I use my Vitamix almost every day to make my smoothies, but also to make my soup and nut butters.
- Walmart will also be very popular. Start shopping on December 24th at 6 pm to find Instant Pots (get my recipes here), cooking pots, and vacuums.
- The Bricks for appliances, furniture and electronics.
Try to buy only what you need and what you can afford. Keep in mind that you will need to pay your credit card bill in January. Read more here: Here’s how to cure your Christmas debt hangover by Maclean’s
