So Canada, What Did You Buy For Boxing Day?

Other / Canada

boxing-day-canada-20101

So… did you brave the crowds today, or did you shop online? What deals did you score?  If you did brave the crowds was it worth the hassle? 

So far I bought a pair of Jessica Simpson Jeans. Tonight at Chapters.ca I got The Source Code Blu Ray, Lincoln Layers Blu Ray, Something Borrowed Dvd and Little Fockers with taxes all in for $26.  I didn’t have the energy to brave the crowds and veer away from angry people with shopping carts ready and willing to trample those who get in their way.

*Don’t forget theres a few hours left to enter our Walmart giftcard giveaway.*

    Bought two 32gb USBs from Staples for $27.99 each, and a Microsoft Office Student Version access key for $79.99 – both things that I needed to buy anyway, just managed to get for less thanks to Boxing Day.

    Forgot to mention… tried to go boxing day shopping in Toronto at Fairview Mall, and circled the parking lot for a bit and gave up trying to find a spot…. at that point I didn’t even want to know what it looked like inside :p

    I bought a BEAUTIFUL coat marked down for $60 from $240, a wallet for $13, a skirt for $8, and I’m going to take the Dyson plunge this week on futureshop.ca for a new vacuum.

    I am currently waiting for the forever21 website to start working again. Loaded up my cart this morning, went out shopping to see if I found something similar to what I wanted for cheaper (I did – jeans), came home and the site has crashed. I REALLY hope they extend the free shipping!!

    Nothing. No money after Christmas and the buses don’t run here on Boxing Day so no way to the malls anyway. But the parents came down with some more gifts so no big deal.

    went to the mall which was crazy, and went to American Eagle which was even crazier! But I got 2 pairs of jeans, warm socks and tech gloves all at 40% off.

    I bought ALL my kids clothes for next winter at 50% off plus a few spring items…now that’s a good feeling! Got some cute things for them at H&M not on sale but too cute to resist. I also picked up some nice things for DH and myself at Banana Republic Outlet. DH drove and dealt with parking while I shopped…bonus! I love Boxing Day Shopping but the sales were not as good this year IMO.

    I applaud your bold shopping and great buys! I have never done the boxing day shopping thing because I find the preChristmas crowds overwhelming and I just don’t think I could handle boxing day out there. :)

    Tried to shop online at Sears – but, wow, by the time I went to checkout, the prices on some of the items had tripled and some were OOS. So it was a no go for me.

    I only braved Superstore. I got a very nice comforter set for $24.94. I set it all up on the bed and love it! I also got some paper plates for 1/2 off and they had lots of salads for 50% off. I need to get back to salad for a week!

    I bought Bridesmaids DVD at Future Shop for $10 and also bought a few things at Winners. It was crowded but there were hardly any lines at checkout and people were not pushy or obnoxious. This is my first Boxing Day in Canada and I was pretty happy with my buys :)

    I was coveting a camera lens in the Best Buy Boxing Day flyer and tried to snag one online, but I waited too long as they were gone almost instantly. But, with some searching I found a better lens for a better deal (although it cost more than the first one), and went with that. That was all that I wanted with my Christmas money.

    Online, I bought a laptop (dh’s gift to me) in the boxing day sales – i’m happy to wait to get a better deal and a wall mount for the kids tv (the tv isn’t new but they have wanted it mounted on the wall for a while).

    I went to futureshop getting there just after 5:30am – I didn’t want any of the big ticket items, so wasn’t going earlier. Got the door crashers – 3 blackberry playbook cases $14.99 each (paybook was our gift to the kids and my gift to dh) and also got 2 copies of Norton 360 (3 licence per box) for $29.99 each.

    I got some snowshoes for 1/2 price, snowboarding pants for 1/2 price, christmas decoration b1g2 free (got 6 total), a sweater, shirt, hat and leggings from Banana Republic for $85, and some Amazon online deals which were AMAZING, including a Bodum coffee press (60% off) and a kitchenaid hand blender (1/2 off), and finally some stuff from Bath and body works, but the sale wasn’t really that great – I got some Christmas scents for 50% off. My hubby also bought the same snowshoes and he also bought some snowboarding gloves which were 30% off. We got some great deals…now, if only we could get some snow!!!

    Went to Canadian Tire for toy clearout and with that 5.00 manufacturer’s coupon found Kinnex big bins for 14.99 each (then used 5.00 off coupon to buy 2). Had 2 coupons so got those and a few Barbie sets that were less than 12.00 each. Went to Hallmark for 10.00 recordable story books for next year, went to La Vie on Rose for Buy 1 Get 1 free Warners bras (the more expensive ones). Went to Chapters for Lego Game at 50% off and then had a swiss chalet 5.00 off toys coupon so got a Lego Game for 5.62! My gift cupboard is now stocked full of toys for kid’s b-day parties this year.

    Got a toaster oven online at Future Shop $30–all excited after waiting 55 minutes in online ‘cue’ to pay only to find out they would only take 2 of my $5 gift cards–had to pay the rest with a credit card. Today they emailed a response to my complaint about not being able to use all of my gift cards: sorry only a combo of 3 pay items: 3 cc’s, or 3 gift cards or combined 3 cards. If I want to combine my cards, I can take them into the store to have this done—I live 90 kms from the closest store!
    Oh well, good price on the toaster oven!

    I stayed far, far away from the mall. Later on in the evening, I decided to take advantage of the AA sale online! Easy-peasy, went through their sale section first, then used the 20% off promo code.

    I checked Best Buy online shortly after midnight and many sale items were already SOLD OUT!
