When it’s cold and dark outside and the pull of Christmas movies is just too tempting, you may be spending a couple of extra hours under the covers this month à la Cameron Diaz in The Holiday.

When do Boxing Day mattress sales end?

The Boxing Day sales more often than not now merge with the January sales, meaning the discounts can last for days, weeks or even the full month depending on the retailer and the stock levels.

While the wording may change from Boxing Day sales to January sales around the end of December, and there’s always the possibility of more products being added throughout the month, essentially the two are the same, with retailers shifting their leftover stock from 2021 to make way for new products.
