Calling all avid shoppers, one of the biggest online retail days of the year is almost upon us. That’s right, Click Frenzy is just around the corner.
What is Click Frenzy?
Click Frenzy is an online sale website, where bargain hunters can enjoy everything from top line clothing brands to tech goods from hundreds of online retailers - all at a bargain price. It was originally launched in 2012, based on Cyber Monday, which is another mega online shopping day in the US.
When is it?
Mark it in your calendar, Click Frenzy is fast approaching and this year falls on Tuesday 14th November in 2017. It’s also just shy of a month until Christmas, making it the perfect opportunity to cross some of those Christmas gifts off your list. For many people in Australia, Click Frenzy officially marks the beginning of the holiday shopping season.
What you can expect?
Serious savings. In previous years both big retailers like Kogan, Microsoft, Cellarmasters the Iconic and smaller retailers have signed up with the initiative to offer some great deals to customers. This year’s retailers will be listed on the site on November 14. The important thing to remember is hundreds of businesses will be vying for your business, so the shopping power is truly in your hands.
How you can use it to your advantage?
Click Frenzy really is a great way to buy those items you’ve been eyeing at a significantly reduced price. But there are some things you should do to ensure you secure those items you’re after:
1. Set an alarm. Click Frenzy starts at 7pm (AEDT) on the 14 November. So why not set an alarm so you can get in early and nab those great deals before they sell out.
2. Check out the coupons available. You could cut the price of items even further by adding a discount code at the online checkout. Some coupons will also mean you’ll get free shipping, another good way to save on your online shopping.
3. See if there are free gifts with purchases. Another way online retailers may tempt you to make a purchase with them during the Click Frenzy sale period is by offering 2 for 1 deals or gifts with purchases. This can come in especially handy if you’re looking to cross some of those gifts off your Christmas list.
Click Frenzy is a good opportunity to start your Christmas shopping early, and can also be a good way to help stick to, or come under, your budget for presents for your loved ones.
