How to bag a Christmas bargain and beat the crowds

Do you hate having to get out of the car to move abandoned trolleys, just so you can park?

Or perhaps you hate buying something then discovering you could have got it cheaper elsewhere?

Now you can avoid the stress of shopping centres and still be treated to the best prices! How you ask? It’s simple. Online shopping that’s how!

A Getprice survey suggests that long queues and trying to find a car park are the top frustrations for consumers during the Christmas period.

How great would it be, being able to sit at the comfort of your own home and get some or all your Christmas shopping done? Luckily for us there is an online event that centralises hundreds of online deals from various retail groups and puts them all in one place.

“Click Frenzy” is Australia’s first national online super- sale. You can find your gifts by category, brand, product name, and item or just browse overall. You can choose from categories such as fashion, consumer electronics, home wares, appliances, books, toys, health and beauty products, furniture, automotive, computers, cosmetics, jewellery, outdoor, wine, beer, spirits and many more.

You have 24 hours

“Click Frenzy” starts tonight, Tuesday November 20 at 7pm (EDST) sharp and will last for 24 hours. You can now get a bargain and avoid having to use claim on your car insurance when a trolley or another car has hit yours.

Don’t stress!

If you miss out on “Click Frenzy” don’t rule out online shopping as the answer. As the ACMA research report states convenience and price are the main reason Australians shop online in general.
