Best deals in the Argos Boxing Day sale

Xbox Series X: Was £479.99, now £379.99,

The Xbox Series X has been heavily reduced. “It’s a thunderously powerful next-generation console,” our writer said in their review. Praising the sleek look, they added: “Aesthetically, and acoustically, the Xbox Series X is a console that feels at home in a living room where grown-ups live. Compare that with the superb but ridiculous-looking PlayStation 5, which resembles an abstract sculpture of Harry Hill and requires removing an external wall to get into your house.”

When does the Argos Boxing Day sale start in 2023?

Argos has been offering half-price discounts on toys and games, as well as 25 per cent off festive homeware buys, and a third off Christmas decorations for quite some time. But the Argos Boxing Day sale is officially underway, having started on 26 December.

How long do the Argos Boxing Day sales last for?

The Argos Boxing Day sales tend to run through to the end of January, so you can wade through the bargains at a leisurely pace.

Is the Argos Boxing Day sale better than the Argos January sale?

The Argos Boxing Day sale becomes the Argos January sale, so there isn’t a lot of difference between the two (other than its name changing at the start of the new year). You may be feeling flusher with post-Christmas cash for shopping in the Boxing Day sales, but the good news is some deals will hang around if you want to grab a tempting discount at a later date.
