How and where to hit the Boxing Day sales from home

If you're too weighed down from Christmas dinner to brave Boxing Day sales, don't worry - most of them are available from the comfort of your home.

Major retailers are slashing prices for the annual sale, not only in-store but also online.

A quick Google search reveals some of the available offers.

The Warehouse will be offering 10 percent off iPhones and up to 60 percent off Daewoo appliances, as well as a buy one get one free system for a range of clothing, toys and outdoor gear.

Cotton on and Kathmandu have up to 50 percent off goods, and Glasssons, Hallensteins and Storm also have significant sales.

Bendon has advertised up to 60 percent off lingerie, and Farmers is holding a store-wide sale including half-price Manchester, half price kids' clothing and half price appliances.

The store also has Fisher and Paykel, Samsung and Haier whiteware at 25 percent off.

Harvey Norman is also holding a store-wide sale, with up to 40 percent off dining and furniture and cut-priced televisions and whiteware.

Noel Leeming has 20 percent off Panasonic, half-price Sunbeam appliances and 30 percent off Nespresso.

Rebel Sport has taken 30 percent off storewide, and Briscoes has taken 30 to 60 percent off everything.

PB Tech is holding a Boxing Day sale which will continue for five days, and includes bundle deals and special prices on laptops, televisions and Apple iPads.

However shopping  from home means you can't try before you buy - and many stores won't accept refunds for items bought at sale price.

Clearance items also may not be listed online.

Stores exclusively online are also offering sales, including Mighty Ape which has up to 80 percent off and also overseas retailers who ship to New Zealand.
