be found, but you can also end up stuck with a dud product that’s been
collecting dust on shelves. We’ve released the top 5 from last years’ sales
so we can help people get a good deal and avoid being ripped off. According
to our data, End of Financial Year and Boxing Day sales are when
Australians shop for big ticket purchases – large appliances we expect to
last for years. Even on sale, these are big investments and no one wants to
regret a big feature of the living room, kitchen or laundry for years to
come” says Brown.
