It might be Christmas Eve, but Currys has already launched its Boxing Day sale, with price drops on items running as high as 70%.
Although the retailer is calling this its January sale, it’s already launched, with discounts across appliances, soundbars, TVs, phones and plenty more.
*We may earn revenue if you click the links below and buy the products but we never let this affect our recommendations. Remember to shop around during the Boxing Day sales to make sure you’re getting the best price.
The high-street and online retailer is one of the biggest sellers of tech and electronic products in the UK, though it also stocks kitchen and household appliances, as well as white goods like washing machines and tumble dryers.
We know that a lot of people might have finished their pre-Christmas spending, and are probably thinking more about what time to put the turkey in the oven tomorrow.
But it’s definitely worth casting an eye over some of the Boxing Day deals we’ve listed below, and giving them consideration.
We’ve also seen a year marked by serious supply issues and stock shortages – so if you do see something you want, it’s not a good idea to assume it will still be available in the weeks to come.
The best deals in the Currys Boxing Day sale
1. Samsung All-in-One Sound Bar with Amazon Alexa, £199.99 (save £200) – buy here
What’s the deal? A 50% price drop on a Samsung soundbar that comes with the built-in services of Alexa.
Why we love it: Because a soundbar is a very easy way to drastically improve the sound quality of your television, or indeed any connected device – and to get one from for half the normal price from one of the biggest tech brands on the planet is a real bargain.
Better still is having Alexa on hand, meaning you can control this audio device without so much as touching a button.
Samsung All-in-One Sound Bar with Amazon Alexa, £199.99 (save £200) – buy here
What’s the deal? Another 50% drop on a Samsung product, this time their mid-range earbuds.
Why we love it: Because while Apple’s AirPods line are hugely popular, and for good reason too, they’re not exactly cheap either.
These deliver a similar level of performance to the 2nd-generation Airpods (there’s no noise-cancellation on either), and now they’re nearly £40 cheaper.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Live, £79.99 (save £80) – buy here
3. Dolce Gusto by De’Longhi Infinissima Coffee Machine, £34 (save £65.99) – buy here
What’s the deal? A mammoth 66% drop on this pod-based, easy-to-use coffee machine.
Why we love it: Because coffee machines coming in a staggering range of prices (you can spend into the thousands), but if you’re after a no-fuss, no-frills options for your counter, this is a great option.
And don’t think your coffee options are limited with the Gusto – there’s over 50 different types of pod flavours to try out.
6. Sony Bravia 85-inch XRX95JU 4K HDRTV, £2,989 (save £1,010) with Google Assistant – buy here
What’s the deal? A hefty £1,o1o discount on an enormous, 85-inch set from Sony’s X95 Bravia line.
Why we love it: Because perhaps the one thing that’s better than a massive TV is a massive TV discount.
Yes, it’s hardly a budget buy at the new price of the £2,989, but it comes from the third-largest TV manufacturer on the market and seriously, televisions won’t be getting any larger than this for quite some time.
If you’re after a new TV on a smaller budget, head to our Boxing TV sales page, where you’ll find options from £169.
Sony Bravia 85-inch XRX95JU 4K HDRTV, £2,999 (save £1,000) with Google Assistant – buy here
7. HP 15s-fq4553sa 15.6-inch 256GB Laptop, £399 (save £130) – buy here
What’s the deal? A price reduction of 24% on this mid-range laptop from HP.
Why we love it: This will serve most people’s needs nicely, being ideally set up for streaming, browsing and other tasks.
It has an impressive battery life of 10 hours, along with an 11th-generation Intel Core i5 processor that is more than capable of managing lots of applications being used at once.

When does the Currys Boxing Day sale begin?
It already has!
This year, Currys rolled out its Boxing Day sale on Christmas Eve (just in case you weren’t busy enough with all that last-minute present-wrapping).
Like we say, this is officially being called the January sale, and it will run until January 25th.
Our guess is that we’ll see fresh waves of price drops in the post-Christmas and post-New Year periods.
Will Currys be open on Boxing Day?
As it stands, yes: Currys stores across the UK will be open for business on Boxing Day.
Of course, with the escalating COVID-19 situation, nothing should be assumed at this point – the government may well introduce new restrictions.
One thing to keep in mind is that prices in-store and online will be exactly the same, so if you would prefer to keep safe and do all your shopping from home, you won’t miss out on any lower prices.
That being said, occasionally stock that sells out online can still be found inside stores themselves.
What were the best deals in the Currys Boxing Day sale last year?
There were a number of real gems in the 2020 sales, across a wide range of products.
It’s something you should definitely keep in mind when you’re hunting through deals in Boxing Day sales, that’s for sure.
Currys is well-known for offering a price-match guarantee – in other words, if you see another product that’s cheaper elsewhere, it will match that price.
Better still, it will do that for up to seven days after you’ve made a purchase, so don’t despair if you’ve just bought an item and you’ve seen a lower price on another store.
It’s worth reading through the details – head to the Price Promise page on the Currys website.
