All you need to know about Amazon’s Boxing Day sale 2021 from when it starts to the best deals to expect on Apple, Hai, Lego and more
Once considered de shopping event of the year, Boxing Day has been overshadowed somewhat by Svart fredag in recent years. But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t plenty of stellar deals and discounts worth snapping up, because there most definitely are. I tillegg til, with more online sales to take advantage of, there’s no need to join those 5am queues on the high street to grab yourself a bargain.
Looking for inspiration for what to spend your Christmas money on? You’re in luck. A lot of retailers will be cutting prices on 26 desember, and that includes Amazon.
Naturlig, being online means you can shop the Amazon Boxing Day sales from the comfort of your sofa, avoiding the queues and tactically placing yourself mere feet away from the fridge and all of those delicious leftovers.
From when it officially kicks off to the best discounts you can expect to find this year, here’s everything you need to know about Amazon’s Boxing Day 2021 salg.
When will the Amazon Boxing Day sales begin in 2021?
Although Amazon hasn’t yet revealed when its Boxing Day sale will start, the clue is in the name. It almost goes without saying, but we expect the sale to begin on 26 desember. When the event will run until is anyone’s guess for now, but we wouldn’t be surprised if there are deals to snap up well into the start of January.
As for the time of day, it depends how early you fancy getting up the day after Christmas…
When will the Amazon Boxing Day sales end?
This is the missing piece of the puzzle for now but we suspect the sale will run until the end of the month.
What we can tell you is that Amazon’s pre-Christmas event, called “last minute deals”, began on 1 December and is still running now. Just don’t expects to bag a load of deals today with next-day Prime delivery. That isn’t going to happen.
I stedet, get your shopping done early, keep an eye on the estimated delivery dates.
What were the best Amazon Boxing Day deals in 2020?
I fjor, we saw a huge range of deals on offer at Amazon between Boxing Day and the start of January. There was money to be saved on TV-er, skjønnhetsprodukter, homeware, spill, kitchen accessories, bærbare datamaskiner, madrasser, watches and Amazon’s own Echo og Kindle devices.
More specifically, we saw a £10 saving on the then-new Amazon Echo dot 4th generation (was £44.99, now £28.99, Amazon.co.uk), a massive £300 off certain models of Apple Watch series 5 (£695.34, Amazon.co.uk).
There was a huge saving of £200 to be had on the Oral-B genius electric toothbrush (was £279.99, nå £99.99, Amazon.co.uk) and over £100 off the Shark upright vacuum cleaner (was £269.99, now £149, Amazon.co.uk).
What can we expect this year?
More of the same, i utgangspunktet. We’re expecting to see some decent savings on a massive range of products across many of Amazon’s most popular product categories. In some ways it’ll feel like a repeat of the Black Friday sales from last month, with money off tech, homeware, kitchen products and televisions.
Be careful, selv om. As with any sale, you need to do your homework to ensure you are getting a genuinely good deal – and make sure you’re aware of the age of the product you’re buying. If a new model is due out soon, the deal might not be as good as it seems.

Elemis pro-collagen cleansing balm, 100g: Was £44, now £32.93, Amazon.co.uk
Elemis’s cleansing balm is enriched with rose and mimosa wax, elderberry, omega and starflower oil and a host of essential oils. It has a buttery texture that melts instantly on contact with dry skin. Når we tested it, our reviewer said that “skin felt soft and smooth, with a subtle glow that you often find after having a facial. From start to finish, the experience is a luxurious treat, and the generous 100g tub will last months, as you only need a small amount.”Usually, it can be difficult to justify spending almost £50 on a product that will, ganske bokstavelig talt, be washed down the drain. But as there’s 25 per cent off right now (and it’s three for two across selected Elemis products), we think it’s more than justified.
REN clean skincare radiance glycol lactic renewal mask, 50 ml: Was £36, now £28.80, Amazon.co.uk
Ren’s entire radiance range is one of our absolute favourites here at IndyBest, but this peel might just be its crowning jewel – and it’s currently got 20 prosent avslag.

We loved it so much that our reviewer named it best buy in our chemical peels avrunding. “The effects were comparable to a professional facial,” said our writer. “Peels sound so harsh, and yet this gave us an unbeatable healthy, dewy finish without any unwanted side effects. Magic in a bottle.”
Amazon is offering three for two across selected Ren products at the moment, and there’s also 36 per cent to be saved on the brand’s clear calm clarifying clay cleanser (was £24, now £15.40, Amazon.co.uk) which featured in our round-up of the best pregnancy skincare.

While we’re yet to review this exact brush, the Oral-B genius X 20000 (was £399.99, now £139.95, Amazon.co.uk), a very similar model, featured in our guide to the best electric toothbrushes, with our writer noting that a dentist had told them they had been neglecting some of their back teeth and “the app identified exactly the same area”.
Ninja foodi multi-cooker, 7-in-1, 6L: Kostet £199,99, now £149.99, Amazon.co.uk
When it comes to cooking, Ninja knows a thing or two. And while we haven’t reviewed this exact model, we’ve always been impressed by Ninja’s products. The foodi max (£ 229,99, Ninjakitchen.co.uk) featured in our round-up of the best pressure cookers and received high praise from our reviewer. sa de, and received high praise from our reviewer. “It was the only pressure cooker we tested that included a built-in air fryer, perfect for rustling up crispy chips, uickly blasting frozen fish fingers for the kids or browning a roast chicken prepared in the pressure cooker,"Sa de.
This model may have a slightly smaller capacity than the foodi max, but with £50 off right now, it also has a much more purse-friendly price tag. And considering it’s only missing two functions against the 9-in-1 version, we still think it’s a worthy investment.
De’Longhi dedica electric coffee grinder: Was £219.99, now £178.99, Amazon.co.uk
One for the coffee connoisseur, this grinder has just shy of 20 per cent off and it’s one of our favourites. Med i vår guide til best coffee grinders, our tester voted it as the best “hi-tech” option, calling it “a good-looking bit of kit with a funky digital display”.
“With 18 grind settings, you can choose exactly how coarse you want your grounds, while the LCD display makes it fairly self-explanatory to use, and you have the ability to decide in advance how many cups of coffee you want, along with a handy, well-designed container to store it in and transport elsewhere,"Sa de. “Clearly a premium product, it doesn’t come cheap, but it will offer serious coffee fans plenty of options when it comes to creating the perfect brew.”

Kids will be able to slide figures down into the hidden chamber before using parceltongue to pass through the iconic circle gate. The stone statue also opens to reveal the basilisk, allowing them to recreate one of Harry’s many heroic scenes.
Though we haven’t tested this set specifically, if it’s anything like the astronomy tower set (£87.71, Amazon.co.uk) we reviewed in our round-up of the best Lego sets for kids, it’s sure to take a couple days to assemble, but we reckon they’ll never want to take it down.
