Most experienced bargain hunters will have kept some money aside for after Christmas when the Boxing Day sales of 2015 get underway. Although, even less experienced shoppers tend to have an eye on these sales since they're generally a great time to find things on the cheap as retailers try to shift remaining stock of anything that didn't sell in the run up to Christmas.
Simply heading down to your local mall or shopping complex to look for a bargain isn't necessarily the best approach. Online offers are not only more convenient but also allow you to cast a wider net in terms of your search for items offering exceptionally good value for money. Many of these online offers, as you'll see below, also come with coupon / voucher codes offering additional discounts. To help you plan your Boxing Day spending, I've compiled a list of some of the most popular retailers across Australia (and on Buckscoop in general) who'll be running competitive Boxing Day sales this year.
