Click Frenzy launches third sale event
Click Frenzy, the business that brought Australia the online discount event that crashed spectacularly after failing to handle the huge influx of traffic late last year, is advertising an end-of-financial-year sale.
The site operated a Mother’s Day sale earlier this year and the event went off without a glitch, although a number of retailers opted not to be involved.
Despite this, the online business has managed to convince a number of well-known Aussie brands to participate in its June “mega sale”.
To lure shoppers back, Click Frenzy has introduced “sprint sales” within the main event, so users can see new deals going live during the sale.
