Presented in partnership with Australia Post
Australia's largest one day online shopping event, Click Frenzy, launched back in November 2012. Five years on, it has quickly become the most anticipated annual event of the online shopping calendar. Shoppers can easily unlock huge discounts on their sought after purchases with dozens of their favourite big name retailers.
The team behind Click Frenzy, have since launched 'Click Frenzy Mayhem' to give consumers access to amazing discounts for 24 hours on Tuesday, May 16.
With the day kicking off tomorrow at 7pm, we’ve teamed up with Australia Post to give you our top five tips on how to get the most out of Click Frenzy.
Do Your Research
Our first tip and arguably our most important - research is key! While it's easy to get sucked into buying a TV or jacket because IT'S 60% OFF, the easiest way to save money is have an idea of what you’re going to buy beforehand. Make a list of what you need or want in your life right now regardless of whether it was on sale. If it makes it onto your want/need list at full price then write it down and reference that list when the Click Frenzy sales begin and you'll avoid the regret of having three spare 55 inch TV's lying around the house. If you're just in the spending mood, think of categories rather than specific items e.g. winter gear, accessories, office shirts etc. That way when it kicks off you know exactly which part of your favourite sites you should hit up first.
Get In Early
Click Frenzy is now a biannual online phenomenon, the popularity of which has grown exponentially in the last few years. An increase in popularity, however, means a surge in traffic and the chance that your sought after items will be sold before you even knew what you wanted to buy. You need to be ready to go well before 7pm, have your tabs open and your research done so you're ready to jump on the bargains once they go live. By 7:30 you should be fully stocked and a satisfied customer.
Chuck It In Your Cart
Know what you want but the sales haven't started yet? Add it to your cart for safekeeping. While not all retailers will cordon off your purchase from other buyers for a set amount of time, some will. Even if they don't, it let's you keep a cart full of the stuff you want so you're ready to pull the trigger come 7pm. Alternatively, allocate half of your budget to what you already want, and another half for surprise deals that may come up when sales kick off. That way you're ready for the necessities but also ready for those offers that are too good to pass up. Prenominated spending and budgeting is great way to stop the impulse buying.
Get It Delivered To Your Local Post Office
If you've shopped online before, you'll know the dilemma you face upon purchasing when you realise you'll have to rearrange your schedule to make sure you're home to receive your new pair of jeans. Fortunately with Australia Post's Parcel Collect service, you don't have to have that worry anymore. Just create a free MyPost account and choose a convenient delivery address in your Australia Post account. Then when you're checking out online, just use that new address as your delivery address, and you'll get notified when your parcel arrives at the post office or 24/7 Parcel Locker!
