David Jones Mid-Season Sales
Expected Upcoming Sale - March & September 2019
In 2018, David Jones Mid-Season Sales started in the months of March and September, and on both occasions they spanned weeks!
The second David Jones 2018 Mid-Season Sale for the year started on 19th September and ran right up until late October, so there was more than enough time to shop this event. Discounts included up to 50% off fashion, shoes and accessories and up to 40% off homewares, manchester, bedding and more.
Generally, the further into this sale event, the bigger the discounts get, so wait it out if you can!
David Jones New-Season Offers
Expected Upcoming Sale - April 2019
For the step from autumn to winter, the David Jones New-Season Offers is an important one for your list. It's the chance to score discounts on brand new designer apparel and accessories, including labels like Tommy Hilfiger, Alexander McQueen, Dolce & Gabbana, Chloe and more.
The 2018 sale ran during April and included discounts of 20% off handbags, and 25% off select menswear.
David Jones International Designer Sale
Expected Upcoming Sale - May 2019
If it's designer apparel you lust after, be sure to visit David Jones during the middle of May. The 2018 International Designer Sale included discounts of up to 50% on designer accessories (handbags, YASS!), womenwear, menswear and even kidswear.
If you miss this one, don't sweat it, there is usually a repeat designer sale in September.
David Jones Clearance Sale
Expected Upcoming Sale - Late May, 2019
The mid-year David Jones Clearance Sale is one of the biggest of the year, and right up there with Boxing Day for opportunities to score the biggest savings on must-have items.
The 2018 David Jones Clearance Sale ran from late May and throughout most of the month of June. With this one, our tip is to wait the sale out out a bit (unless you are after something guaranteed to sell out, of course). Towards the end of the sale it's common to see massive reductions on already reduced items.
The 2018 David Jones Clearance Sale included up to 50% off home and electric products, and by the final days, a further 40% off discounted apparel and accessories for men, women and kids. Don't miss this one!
David Jones Afterpay Day
Expected Upcoming Sale - August 2019
Afterpay day is an annual sales event that involves most retailers who offer this payment method - including David Jones.
In 2018, Afterpay day was on 16th August, and ran for 24 hours. David Jones offered shoppers 20% off select fashion, shoes, accessories, home, beauty and small appliances provided you checked out using Afterpay.
Vogue American Express Fashion's Night Out
Expected Upcoming Event - August 2019
This event isn't typically labelled as a sale, although it definitely needs a mention in this guide because there are more than a few offers involved - and it's way too exciting to ignore!
In 2018, David Jones teamed up with Vogue and American Express for one massive night of fashion parades, pop-ups, food, styling, beauty and plenty of offers. The event was held in Sydney (CBD store), and Melbourne (Bourke Street store), and ran from midday right through until 10 p.m.

David Jones Father's Day Sale

David Jones Black Friday Sale
Expected Upcoming Sale - 29th November, 2019
Black Friday gets bigger and better every year in Australia, so it's only natural that Australia's oldest department store would be involved in the huge sale event.
2018 deals included huge discounts on Dyson vacuums and up to 60% off apparel.
David Jones Boxing Day Sale
Expected Upcoming Sale - December 2018
This is the big one when it comes to David Jones sales, so big in fact that, like Myer, customers queue up for hours to get into David Jones stores on 26th December, and the sale is kicked off with a celebrity ringing an enormous bell!
Nowadays with online shopping in full swing, we don't have to battle the crowds, because most of the offers appear online as well as in-store.
The David Jones Boxing Day Sale traditionally covers all departments and the reductions are huge. In 2017 we saw a mass of apparel at half price, 20% off big-brand toys like Barbie and LEGO, and up to 40% off manchester and homewares.
In 2017 there was also the opportunity to score a further 10% discount if you paid using a David Jones credit card.
This sale usually starts as early as 24th December online (a great chance to nab those items that are pegged to sell out), but store sales don't start until 26th December.
