Article by Ceyda Erem
In less than 8 hours, Aussie credit cards will be put through the ultimate test of online shopping - Click Frenzy.
Returning for its sixth year in a row, Click Frenzy is an online-only Australian sales event that offers customers 24 hours to grab a serious bargain, with discounts of up to 99% off.
More than 250 online retailers are expected to participate in this year’s sale, including Myer, Peter Alexander, Webjet and Puma.
Some of the best deals include Beats Wireless Headphones retailing at a tiny $3, the highly anticipated $10 TV and a 6 night stay at the Shangri-La Fijian Resort and Spa for $1,290, which includes return flights, transfers, breakfast, dinner and babysitting for two.
“Some items will sell out very quickly — we know that the subscriber-only 99% off deals sell out really fast, but we’ve added more stock than ever and those subscribers who follow the clues in their emails are going to have a real chance,” said Click Frenzy Co-Founder, Grant Arnott.
