Christmas Day might be the rearview mirror but the holidays are far from over, and if Santa dropped a few gift cards down your chimney this year the fun is far from finished. With Boxing Day morphing into Boxing Week over the last several years there’s no better time to hop online and put those gift cards to good use. Here’s a look at some of the best deals around.
Must-have tech at Best Buy
If you’re a gadget, gizmo, and all-around tech junkie, Best Buy is where Boxing Day begins and ends. One of this year’s hottest items was the Google Home smart assistant speaker, but it was also hard to find thanks to stock shortages. Right now you can save $80 on the Home by ordering it on backorder. Other great Boxing Week deals at Best Buy include 20% off all Philips Hue smart lights and bulbs, and $120 off Bose QuietComfort headphones.
Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us
When Toys “R” Us (and by extension Babies “R” Us) filed for bankruptcy protection in the United States earlier this year it set off lots of speculation about the future of the company. There’s still no certainty about that future, but one thing is clear: Toys “R” Us is in need of some bold moves to stay competitive. Well, there’s nothing bolder than their combined Boxing Week sales, which are offering hundreds and hundreds of items at 50% off.
Rare deals at Amazon
It’s never hard to find a great deal on Amazon, but this is the time of year to snipe deals on timeless items that hardly ever go on sale. Like up to 30% off Game of Thrones on Blu-ray, or tons and tons of deals on classic Disney movies on Blu-ray. Refreshingly, one of the cooler deals on Amazon amounts to an entirely offline experience—you can get the illustrated hardcover versions of three Harry Potter books for $20 off each.
