Click Frenzy are having another sale later this evening, and just like last year there’s some good tech and gaming deals available.
Update 16/05: More deals have been added – scroll to the bottom to see discounts on games from GOG, extra board games and discounts on Surface gear.
We’ll kick things off with the best deals. They won’t start appearing until 1900 AEST / 1830 ACST / 1700 AWST, and you’ll have to jump through some hoops to ensure you can grab those deals when they appear. Jackson over at Lifehacker has written a handy guide on how to do that, however:
Click Frenzy refreshes onto browsers Australia wide from 7pm tonight and just like Click Frenzy last November, there are ridiculous prices everywhere. However, the best is yet to come.Read more
As for what’s actually available, here’s a truncated list of the relevant tech and gaming flash deals that are available tonight. This isn’t the full list of everything – you’ll be able to grab a $200 Myer gift card for $2, for example – but if you just want gaming and tech stuff exclusively, here’s what to look out for:
Click Frenzy Go Nuts deals
|Toshiba 32″ Series L37 HD LED LCD TV||$3|
|Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphone||$3|
|XBOX ONE S 500Gb||$3|
|Bose SoundLink Revolve Bluetooth Speaker||$3|
|iPad Mini Wi-Fi Only||$5|
|LG 55″ HD LED TV||$10|
Personally, a Nespresso machine for $1 is pretty damn good, but I digress.
It’s worth noting that you won’t be able to use a PayPal account for tonight’s deals either. Mastercard and Visa are your only two options, and if you want to take the risk of having your browser automatically enter in credit card details to save time – because Click Frenzy deals are very much a race against time – you should stick to Chrome as well. (Adblockers will mess you up, too.)
The largest deals will run from 1900 – 2300 AEST tonight, starting again from 0600 AEST tomorrow morning.

As for the other deals:
Discounts on Surface Pro and Surface Laptops: If you head over to the Microsoft Store today you can get discounts on Surface Pro, Surface Laptop and the Surface Studio configurations. How much you save depends on what rig you get: you’ll save almost $300 on an i5 Surface Laptop with 256GB storage and 8GB RAM. If you want an i5 Surface Pro with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage, that will set you back $1274.15 instead of $1499. Conversely, you’ll save almost $400 on an i7 Surface Pro with 8GB RAM and a 256GB SSD. Head here to check out all the bundles.
Up to 85% at GOG: The home of retro re-releases and, most recently, Star Wars Episode 1: RACER, is having a mammoth sale of their own. A lot of NEOGEO games are going for under $4 a pop, including the Metal Slug series. Cannon Fodder 1 and 2 are selling for $1.59 each, and the underrated I.G.I. 2: Covert Strike is only $2.59. Check out the full list here.
Up to 40% off on Razer peripherals: Razer are offering nice discounts and free shipping (over $80) on a range of their keyboards, with the BlackWidow X Ultimate going for $143.95, the BlackWidow Tournament Stealth selling for $119.95 and a mechanical keyboard case for the Apple iPad Pro, if you want a better experience there. There’s also $400 off the base Razer Blade (the “New” one) and the UHD model. Head here for the full list.
Xbox One S 500GB Bundle with 6 games ($299): It’s not as good as a console for $3, but you do get a minimum of Quantum Break, Forza Motorsport 6, NBA 2K18, Dead Rising 4, a choice between Recore or Screamride, and one of the following: Forza Horizon 3 with the Hot Wheels DLC, Assassin’s Creed: Origins, or Minecraft.
I’d go for the Origins bundle out of the lot, personally. Each bundle comes with a month of Xbox Game Pass and a fortnight of Xbox Live Gold as well. Head here for more details.
Book Depository’s anime and manga sale: Book Depository are running a store-wide sale, which includes discounts on their anime and manga collection. Some picks include Brian K. Vaughan’s excellent Saga series, almost 50% off the Asterix & Obelix omnibuses, Alan Moore’s Batman: The Killing Joke in hardcover, Uzumaki, and more. Browse the full list here.
Mighty Ape’s deals on board games: Mighty Ape had a range of sales on board games for Click Frenzy last year, and while they’re not officially participating in tonight’s shenanigans they do have some sales right now on titles worth adding to your collection. Sheriff of Nottingham is available for $41.99 (down from $65), Asgards Chosen is going for $39, and Favor of the Pharaoh for $55.
Games Empire’s clearance sale: Also running the same day as Click Frenzy, Games Empire are running a clearance sale on a range of board games big and small. Seafall for $60, the tabletop translation of M.U.L.E. for $70, Legend of the Five Rings LCG for $45 and more. Check out the full list here.

There’s a 65″ 4K HDR X7000E model for $1497, a 55″ 4K HDR X8500E for $1297, and a reasonably priced 55″ 4K HDR X7000E for $997. If you’re after headphones, the very good 1000X noise cancelling wireless headphones are going for $449, while the CH700N wireless noise cancelling headphones are discounted to $249.
We’ll keep updating this list – check back later for more!
