So with shopping wiser in mind, here are the key dates left for 2023 that you'll want to highlight on your Christmas countdown calendar.


October

  • Click Frenzy - 24th of October
    Known for its crazy 99% off deals, Click Frenzy’s The Main Event features a 53-hour sales marathon that is not to be missed. Including big-brand retailers both online and offline you’ll find a great range of fashion, beauty, toys, outdoors and much that could be your ticket to some great buys this Christmas.

    To keep track of Click Frenzy’s upcoming sale bookmark this page so you don’t miss out.

  • Black Friday "early-bird" sales - End of October
    In the lead up to the actual Black Friday sales many retailers kick off early bird deals towards the end of October as a teaser for the main event which takes place at the end of November. This can be a great opportunity to score top deals on everything from homewares to electronics, toys and so much more.

    We’ll be tracking deals constantly, so bookmark our Black Friday page to be in the know for when sales start dropping.


November

  • Black Friday - Friday the 24th of November
    With U.S roots, the official Black Friday Sales have really taken off in Australia and mark one of the biggest sale days for many retailers. From big ticket items like washing machines, sofas and big screen TVs to smaller items like toys and clothing, there are definitely deals to be had on this day.

    Stay tuned to what’s dropping this Black Friday right here.
  • Cyber Monday - Monday the 27th of November
    A carry-over from Black Friday sales, Cyber Monday is all about online shopping and finding a great deal from the comfort of your own home. This sale is usually full of discounts on tech, gaming, gadgets and electronics, so it's wise to bear this one in mind for all those tech-lovers and gamers this Christmas.


December

  • Green Monday - Monday 12th of December
    Years ago, this marked the last day that shipping was available in time for Christmas. Although shipping times have improved, it’s still a reason to have a sale, and generally, marks one of retail’s busiest shopping days of the year, so keep your eyes peeled for this sale.
  • Free Shipping Day - 15th of December
    Many online retailers offer free shipping to celebrate the final day that they will guarantee arrival for Christmas on this date and with shopping centre’s extremely busy during December, what better deal than getting free shipping on your purchases? So if you want to avoid the shopping crowds, this sale’s for you.
  • Boxing Day Sale - 26th of December
    While this one won’t get you a bargain in time for Christmas Day, be sure to check out the Boxing Day sales both in store and online. Another great idea is to gift-give vouchers so friends and family can shop this great sale event. With both big and small ticket items reduced to clear, this is one of the year’s biggest sales by far!
