    I went this morning to one of the larger malls in the city, and first I went to Bestbuy when it opened and got myself an Ipad mini 4 for $125 off original price tag. Then I went to check out footlocker, bought a pair of black under armour sweat/track pants for half off $50 off of $100, then I was going to buy some shoes there, the pair of Nike free runs (they are light as a feather) was $140 off of $155, literally 15 bucks off...Was going to buy them but then at the last second I thought I should check somewhere else in the mall first (sport chek) and funny enough the exact same shoes there were only $85 off of $150 so obviously I bought them there, and just went ahead with the track pants at foot locker. All in all it was a decent run for boxing day, saving a total of $240 off just a few items. Obviously TVs were the biggest discount at bestbuy, but I have no interest in another one; have a few already and it's very easy to find cheap televisions nowadays.


    What did you buy, and what kinds of savings did you get?

    It wasn't as bad there as I thought it would be. I was prepared for bestbuy obviously and got there very early to avoid any overcrowding.

    I went out to look around but a lot of shit deals for smaller stuff. Dont need a new tv or blu ray or tablet or any of that crap.

    Picked up Shadow of Mordor GotY edition on XBONE and saved a whopping 5 bucks, and got some chocolates 50% off. Super meh Boxing week deals.

    Black Friday has supplanted boxing day as the big sales day in Canada.

    Nothing really caught my eye as being must haves. I picked up a 2tb portable hard drive from Best Buy for $60, which was an okayish deal.

    i was honestly surprised, thought there would be more stuff with much better deals on today..But it seems the stores are just getting much greedier every year.

    Stores were closed today but I try to avoid them this time of year anyway. Boxing week is usually crap.
