Ridiculous flash sales are part of Click Frenzy's charm and this year the site will be offering a limited number of Nintendo Switches for $5. Here's how you can get one but you'll have to act incredibly fast.
Between 10am and 11am AEST today, Click Frenzy is going to sell Nintendo Switches for $5 as one of their 99% Go Wild flash sales. There are a few hoops you'll have to jump through to get this deal. Here's what to do:
First of all, you must have an account with Click Frenzy and be signed in. So far, so simple.
Next you need to have browser notifications turned out. The deal will show up as a notification, turn them off and you'll miss your shot.
Keep the site open on your browser and keep an eye out for that notification between 10am and 11am AEST.
When you get the notification, you'll be prompted to enter a password. That password will be trivia based on existing sales going on the site. Above is an example from Lifehacker's liveblog of last night. So keep an eye on the rest of the site to get your best chance of answering that trivia quickly.
These passwords are finicky and you must use all lowercase and no spaces.
People have reported failure despite getting things right. According to the Click Frenzy Twitter account, that's because the passwords only work while the deal is live. Got to be fast.
It's deals time. As is customary every November, retailers discounting all manner of games, phones, electronics, board games, you name it. Click Frenzy kicks things off this evening, but there's plenty of sales later this week with Black Friday and Cyber Monday around the corner. As for Click Frenzy, here's the best of the bunch.
Update: As expected, the $5 Switch deal sold out immediately. Well done if you were one of the incredibly lucky people to get one.
