Christmas Eve and Christmas Day saw year-on-year increases of 86% and 71% respectively in the number of visits to online retailers, but this dropped to just 17% on Boxing Day.
Customers were becoming savvier in their tactics and hunting out the bargains earlier than ever online, analysts said.
Britons still made a record 113 million visits to retail sites on Boxing Day, making it the busiest online shopping day in UK history, but after predictions of 126 million the performance was described as “slightly muted and not as prolific as forecast”.
James Murray, digital insight manager at Experian, said: “The UK ‘sales creep’ continues to advance so that now the post-Christmas sales are starting before Christmas.
“Five years ago we called it the January sales, before it became the Boxing Day sales, now retailers have to call it the winter sales as discounting starts earlier to encourage higher spending.”
Forget Boxing Day, the sales are on now. Marks & Spencer, John Lewis and Currys/PC World have forgone tradition and will start their sales on Monday.
M&S began its online sale at noon on Christmas Eve, John Lewis kicked off its sale at 5pm and Currys/PC World at 7pm. M&S has even bought the “Christmas Eve sales” search terms on Google in an attempt to attract shoppers.
The dash for bargains will continue on Christmas Day, with online retailers predicting a record 82m visits, a 32% increase on last year, according to Experian. Amazon will begin its sale a day earlier than normal on Christmas Day at 9am.
The last-minute dash to the high street is also expected to be much busier than in previous years. Many consumers were unable to finish all their shopping on 23 December – normally the busiest Christmas shopping day – because of Sunday trading laws limiting shops to just six hours trading.
To get round the ban M&S reopened more than 60 of its stores to allow customers to buy up essentials before Monday’s crush of last-minute panic buyers.
