      The Australian National Retailers Association predicts Victorians will spend the most at $588 million, closely followed by NSW on $511m.
      Victoria has unrestricted trading across the state, but NSW has public holiday shopping restrictions outside tourist precincts.
      Big spending is expected to continue across Australia tomorrow, with a predicted spend of $1.2bn.
      Spending for the first week of the sales is predicted to top $5.7bn, with NSW spending the most at $1.7bn followed by Victoria on $1.4bn.
      lojas roupas online, homewares and electronics will be the most popular items bought, the ANRA says.
      Meanwhile, NSW Fair Trading Minister Anthony Roberts has reminded shoppers that they only have rights under Australian consumer laws if they're dealing with Australian companies.
      "If you purchase from an Australian company that deals online and you have an issue or a problem with them, then Fair Trading can assist you," he told Macquarie Radio today.
      "But if you are giving your credit card details to someone in Guangzhou province, operating out of some warehouse in China, and that good arrives faulty then there's not much we can do for you."
      Mr Roberts also warned online shoppers to be careful when handing over their credit card details because "you never know who you're dealing with".
      However, he added, statistics showed about 70 to 80 per cent of the online stores people were buying from were actually Australian-owned and operated.
      Mr Roberts also reminded consumers that shops weren't always compelled under law to refund or return.
      "A lot of people are going to be out there today shopping, and also a lot of people are going to be taking those products back they have received as gifts ... But people have got to realise that refunds are not unconditional," he said.
      But, he added, if goods are faulty consumers are entitled to a new product or cash back.
      Victorian Consumer Affairs Minister Michael O'Brien also reminded bargain hunters that discounted or sale items are covered by the Australian Consumer Law, just like full-priced items.
      Consumers have rights to a refund, repair or exchange in certain circumstances, Mr O'Brien says.
      "When you buy lojas compras online goods or services and they break too easily, don't work or don't perform as generally expected, you have rights under the law, even if you bought them during a sale," he said.
      "No refund" or "exchange or credit note only for sale items" signs are illegal as they suggest refunds are not possible under any circumstances, Mr O'Brien says.
      Consumers who have problems with a purchase should contact the business first and then Consumer Affairs Victoria for advice.
