Limbo week is here, and that can mean only one thing if you didn't quite get the gifts you were expecting under the tree. Boxing Day sales are go, so you can save on everything from consoles to accessories, merch to games right now. We're bringing you all the retailers currently offering Boxing Day sales for gamers, so you can head straight to the stores offering the kit you need.
This is the last major sales event of the year, and with new tech releasing in the early months of 2024 retailers are keen to clear their shelves of unsold stock. That means super low prices for us.
What's great is that the best Christmas sales for gaming often take hefty price cuts even before the big day - once that final shipping date has passed we tend to see prices hit rock bottom. That's why we're rounding up all the best Boxing Day sales for gamers right here, across all major platforms.
It doesn't matter whether you play on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, or PC, we've found the retailer that has the right deal for you. You'll find all the stores we regularly hit for the biggest Boxing Day sales for gamers just below.

Box | PC accessories from £1.99
With a massive range of laptops and TVs on offer, Box specializes in cheaper gadgets that won't break the bank.

Currys | console bundles with free delivery
Currys is a classic when it comes to catching up on all the tech that didn't make its way under your tree this year. In recent months we've seen some excellent offers on all things Nintendo Switch here as well, with OLED bundles hitting the shelves over the last few weeks and some further discounts on games. There's plenty on the shelves for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X players as well.
Dell | discounts across laptops and accessories
Even if you're not after a new laptop (though prices do drop particularly low here), Dell can save you plenty of cash on accessories and monitors for the rig you already have. Mice, headsets, and keyboards are limited to Dell's Alienware brand, but there's plenty of savings if you're a fan of that angular design.
Ebuyer | up to 30% off PCs and accessories
From storage to cooling fans, laptops to gaming monitors, we usually see a strong turnout in Boxing Day sales for gamers at Ebuyer. This retailer does specialise in the PC arena, so if you're looking to kit out your setup after Christmas, we'd recommend taking a look.

Boxing Day sales for gamers don't get better than this. Your favorite high street game shop regularly offers some excellent discounts on games and merch once the turkey's been digested. Not only that, but with the brand branching out into board and card games in recent years, there's plenty of tabletop fun to see you through limbo week as well.

Jacamo | up to £100 off consoles

John Lewis | up to 50% off
While not typically known for its gaming deals, John Lewis has a trick up its sleeve when it comes to Boxing Day sales.

Laptops Direct | save up to 30% on PC accessories
There are a lot of retailers discounting laptops in Boxing Day sales, but few can compete with Laptops Directs' super low prices. You'll find budget-minded Chromebooks, Windows machines, and gaming rigs here, as well as plenty of discounted accessories to go with them.

If you haven't stepped on enough Lego bricks by the time Christmas is over, we'd recommend stocking up while the Lego Boxing Day sales are live. We regularly see discounts on premium and more affordable sets during these larger sales periods.
Logitech | up to £50 off sitewide with code LOGI23

Menkind | save up to 40%
With plenty of gadgets and gizmos on the shelves, it can be easy to get lost in the digital aisles of Menkind. While the PC gaming accessories on offer are on the 'super-budget' end of the scale, you'll find plenty of merch and Funko delights to feast on here - as well as regular discounts.
Microsoft | up to 30% off Elite controllers
Aside from Microsoft's own Xbox site, there are plenty of gaming headsets, mice, and keyboard discounts usually on offer over Boxing Day. With brands like HyperX, Razer, and Turtle Beach taking part in previous sales, it's all to play for this year.
Nanoleaf | 20% off Elements starter sets and expansions
Nanoleaf RGB lighting panels are truly something to behold, so we're hopeful for some discounts in this year's Boxing Day sales. The retailer itself doesn't offer too many sales, but there are usually competitions and giveaways running around the Christmas period to get involved in.

The Game Collection offers a massive range of the latest titles at super low prices, and catching them during a sale can prove particularly lucrative. PS5 games are already available for well under £20 here, with plenty more titles discounted across platforms.
Very | Meta Quest 2 now £150 off
While Very might not be your first choice when stocking up your gaming collection, it actually offers some considerable discounts on games and accessories. There isn't the range of some of the more specialized retailers here, but because this store often price matches Amazon on bigger items (and can hold onto stock a lot longer), it's well worth a look.
Xbox | Xbox Series S holiday pricing – limited time
Xbox games are regularly on sale (and can get even cheaper if you're a Game Pass Ultimate member), which means we're likely to see some super low prices once you're free to boot up your new console. Not only that, but we often see discounts on official controllers and accessories here as well.
Zavvi | Lego sets up to £150 off
If you're looking to put the controller down for a second, but still say firmly within the world of your favorite game, it's worth stocking up on merch from Zavvi. Collectables, apparel, and novelty items abound here, with some strong discounts during the holidays as well.
Boxing Day sales: FAQ
When will Boxing Day sales begin?
Boxing Day sales are creeping closer and closer each year, with some even kicking off before Christmas. Retailers tend to shift their focus once the last day of Christmas shipping has passed, which explains why we've been seeing so many savings landing before the turkey's in the oven in recent years. In general, though, the biggest Boxing Day sales kick off between December 25 and December 26 depending on the retailer.
Should you wait for Boxing Day sales?
If you're already browsing the fantastic range of Christmas sales on the shelves right now, there isn't much need to wait until Boxing Day. These discounts are often a continuation of the deals retailers are willing to offer in the lead-up to the big day - just with a new banner at the top of the page.
That said, there are some categories, like toys, that could see further discounts once the Christmas rush is over. If you're not concerned about stock levels or delivery before the actual holiday, it might be worth waiting a little.
When do the Boxing Day sales end?
Well, the truth is that the Boxing Day sales just turn into, or run into, the January sales. This means there's an extensive sales period after Christmas and means the opportunity for picking up a deal is greater and potentially more fruitful.
