boxing day deals

Friends and strangers… tomorrow is BOXING DAY! The day generally means people storming stores for the best deal they can find.

Is that my plan? Absolutely not. I want to be strategic. I am easily overwhelmed in crowds and impatient in lines.

My recommended deals (in no particular order):

  • RW&CO: Take an extra 50% off the last ticketed price on all sale merchandise (Dec 26 – Jan 4).
  • Gap: Everything 40% off until 12pm, 30% off 12pm to 3pm, 25% off 3pm to close (Dec 26 only).
  • Urban Outfitters: 50% off all sale items – instore only (Dec 26-31).
  • Obakki: 50% off everything online and instore. Promo code: bigfifty (Dec 26 only).
  • The Bay: Up to 70% off fashion clearance, 50% off women’s boots, 50% women’s fall & winter fashion (Dec 26 only).
  • Banana Republic: 50% off sale items until 12pm, 30% off sale items from 12pm to close – instore and online. Online promo code: BRBoxing (Dec 22-31).
  • Mexx: 50% off everything instore (Dec 26-Jan 2).
  • Guess: 30% off regular price, 50% off sale price instore (Dec 26-29).
  • Jacob: 50% off everything instore (Dec 26).
  • Esprit: 50% off everything instore (Dec 26 – Jan 5) and 40% off everything online (Dec 23-26).
  • Sterling Shoes: 50% off sale items (Dec 26-31).
  • Espy: Up to 63% off checked items, up to 43% off brand new merchandise, up to 63% off samples, 39% off bags/purses/boots, and $3/9/19 bins (Dec 30 only).

I’ll be spending my time at Core Shopping this Boxing Day and then a stroll through Kensington.  The plan: The Bay, Gap, Banana Republic, and Tristan. Then Sole Comfort [solely because I have a gift card – and might buy myself some Uggs (I know.. shocking)] and maybe Purr in Kensington.  In a few days I’ll head to Espy for their delayed – but wonderful – Boxing Day extravaganza.

For those in Calgary… mall hours:

  • Chinook Centre & Market Mall – 8am to 7pm
  • Sunridge Mall – 9am to 6pm
  • Core Shopping – 10am to 6pm

If you’re heading out I wish you good luck and sanity. A few tips: take transit to avoid a parking nightmare, wear leggings and a tank so you can try on clothes in the aisles of the store, and stay hydrated!!

Lastly if you were planning on booking a trip to Vegas this Spring… Expedia‘s Boxing Day bonus is $100 savings off a 4+ night hotel package. Book by December 31st, for travel until March 31st. Use promo code BOXING2011 at checkout.
