When do boxing day sales start showing up?

I recently bought a 50" plasma TV. I'm starting to think it was kind of silly to buy a TV this close to boxing day. I have until the 21st to return it.

So I'm wondering, when do boxing day deals start showing up? I've never actually bought anything on boxing day before so I've never looked into it.

Do they advertise boxing day deals, or do you just have to go to a store and have a look?

I bought it from Visions, so I don't think they'll match any boxing day prices since they'll be in "limited quantities".

Any suggestions on what I should do?

If you got a good deal on the TV I would suggest you keep it, if the deal was mediocre or bad, return it. The chances of getting the TV you want at a great price on boxing day are VERY slim, as they usually have very limited quantities. There are online sales of course, but last year they were pretty sad.

Boxing Day? YAWN!

Typically they show up, AT THE VERY LATEST, in the last set of flyers you get before Christmas.

I don't find Boxing Day deals that good. Mostly stuff that could be had, during sales, at other times of the year....at just about the same price as those sales. IF your specific item is not on sale, you'll with all likelyhood be dissapointed. Unless you're into impulse shopping in which case that $8 32GB USB 2.0 stick will force you to wake up at 4:00 am. Or that INSERT NAME HERE that shows up for $40 less than its regular price of $139.99.

They're pretty much useless. I mean who the hell is going to fall for a 20 CD-ROM pack for $6.99!

Boxing Day deals do not deliver.

They AREN'T WHAT WE THOUGHT THEY WERE!
