Click Frenzy + Cyber Weekend = Super Super!
What are Click Frenzy and Cyber Weekend?
Click Frenzy is an Australian online shopping event where most online retailers offer heavy discounts and provide exclusive offers in order to generate sales. Click Frenzy lasts for just over 50 hours, and typically takes place twice a year, in both May and November.
Its November 2022 period starts on Tuesday November 8. Click Frenzy is specific to the Australian market, and was created in order to encourage more people to shop online in a specific timeframe. Over 500 leading Australian brands participate, and offer some amazing deals. You can read more about which retailers are involved in the 2022 Click Frenzy here.
Cyber Weekend is a similar proposition, although it occurs just once a year, typically in the last weekend of November. Originally starting in the USA, it was created for a similar reason to Click Frenzy; to kickstart online shopping in a certain timeframe. This year, Cyber Weekend starts on Friday 25 November and ends on Monday 28 November.
