Click Frenzy was a couple of weeks ago now and, as you may remember, Lifehacker braved the long hours to live blog the whole thing. With good reason too! Some items were 99% off, including an LG 55" 4K TV that was going for just $10.

If you were one of the unlucky many who missed out on Click Frenzy's Go Wild deals - all hope is not lost. You may still have snagged a huge bargain despite being told you weren't quick enough.


Click Frenzy, one of the biggest online sales days on the Australian calendar, has come and gone for another year. The promise of crazy prices – a $10 55-inch 4K LG TV among them – had customers in a spin ready to thrown their wallets at their screens. The reality has been something a little more sobering. The deals have been hard to come by, Click Frenzy’s emails have been delivered late and customers have been fighting poor internet speeds and a terrible user interface on the Click Frenzy website.


Click Frenzy may have officially ended last night, but the deals don't have to stop! Some retailers have extended their offers until the end of day today, some discount codes seem to still be working and some stores are still displaying great prices.


On Saturday, the biggest sales period of the year officially kicked off with the launch of Singles Day. But this is only the beginning. For the rest of the month, bargain hunters are going to be hit with one huge sale after another, including the massive international shopping event known as Black Friday.

And maybe... just maybe, we'll also see the launch of Amazon Australia. My wallet is ready.


Australia's Click Frenzy sale is now in full swing. If you missed out last night you still have 12 hours to snap up an online bargain, including some solid deals on video games, computers and electronics. Here are the best Click Frenzy deals so far, with links to buy.


Australia's answer to Cyber Monday kicks off tonight for the sixth time. The organisers are promising the biggest sale ever with discounts of up to 80 per cent on a huge range of consumer goods, including cameras, TVs, video games and electronics. Here are the details.


When Click Frenzy launched in 2012, it was supposed to be Australia's answer to the Cyber Monday mega sales in the US. Instead, the deals were mostly a load of arse and the website keeled over and died. Dusting itself off, the company promised things would be better the following year. Instead, the deals were mostly a load of arse and the website keeled over and died.

Fast-forward a few years and the deals are actually starting to look pretty decent! As the adage goes, good things come to those who wait - including bargain hunters. Here are the best deals so far, including iPhones, video game consoles, computers and fashion...


We have long maintained that the frequently overloaded Click Frenzy shopping events are basically a waste of time and that shopping around makes much more sense. A round-up of this year's already-announced deals by Finder.com.au underscores the point: many online stores are selling the same products via Click Frenzy at wildly different prices, and you can often do better by shopping elsewhere and ignoring the high-pressure hype.


Lifehacker predicted that last year's Click Frenzy online sale would be a disaster, and it was: the site crashed within minutes and if you could get through, the bargains on offer were unremarkable. Undaunted, the organisers are returning this week with a "Mother's Day Frenzy" and claim the technology is in place to ensure the site won't collapse, but even assuming that happens it's still a lousy way to shop.


Yeah, we told you this would happen. As soon as it launched at 7pm yesterday, the Click Frenzy 'Cyber Tuesday' sale site was entirely inaccessible or unusably slow for most people, a situation that persisted for hours in many cases. Combine that with a so-so selection of bargains and it seems clear that while we're all interested in hunting down a good deal, attempting to corral them all in one place didn't help anyone much.


Starting at 7pm AEDT on Tuesday November 20 and running for just 24 hours, the Click Frenzy sale site is positioning itself as an Australian alternative to the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales which dominate US retailing around Thanksgiving. I'm all for hunting down a bargain, but I'm not entirely convinced that Click Frenzy will deliver bargains to many people. Here are three reasons why.
