It's deals season once again, with Click Frenzy Mayhem starting up for another year. Laptops, gaming monitors, games, peripherals, headsets - there's bargains galore today.
This story has been updated since it was first published.
It's not officially part of the Click Frenzy deals, but GMG's birthday sale is running at the same time. Either way, it's cheaper video games - so everyone wins!
Amidst all the Click Frenzy mayhem, there's plenty of other bargains available - especially if you want cheap video games.
Telstra's dropped the pricing on their Xbox All Access program for Click Frenzy, which includes an Xbox One S and two years of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for $22 a month. Two years of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate costs just over $382 at the current rate, meaning you'll be paying just $146 for the 1TB Xbox One S.

Click Frenzy Mayhem 2020 Gaming Monitors
Anyone looking for a tax-time "working from home" upgrade is in for a treat. Australia has gotten a ton of better high-refresh rate monitors over the last few months, ranging from well-rounded 144Hz/165Hz screens to the super-fast, colour accurate 240Hz IPS panels.
Enjoy competitive shooters? Or need the fastest response time for sim racing or fighting games? Then today's a good day for a monitor upgrade.
Along with the HP by Omen deal above, there's also an excellent bargain on the 27-inch 144Hz IPS screen from LG. It's available for $764.15 through eBay with the PHREEZE checkout code.
Wind back a few years and monitors were like buying an Australian internet connection. You couldn’t have fast, reliable and affordable internet - it was only two of the three. Similarly, monitors were stuck in this weird spot where you could have great colour accuracy, high refresh rates and 1440p or better resolution … if you wanted to spend a few grand. But times have changed, and screens are now starting to hit the sweet spot: good refresh rates for gaming, good response times, and decent colour accuracy out of the box at a price that regular gamers can justify paying.
Lenovo's Click Frenzy Mayhem 2020 Deals
Lenovo's gaming offers have ramped up over the last 12 months, and their gaming laptops in particular are becoming really competitive in the Australian market. They also have the benefit of not sporting massive RGB strips, making them a decent alternative for offices (whenever we all end up back in those).
The full list of deals is here, but below you'll find individual links to specific offers. Note that some of the laptops are deliberately customisable, so while you'll still get an immediate saving, you'll need to pick some of the components before checkout (like storage).

ASUS's Click Frenzy Mayhem 2020 Deals
This one's more of a package deal. While ASUS aren't offering any bonuses directly - those discounts come from Australian retailers themselves - you can get up to $100 in Steam credit until May 31 by purchasing any applicable ASUS product. The list includes just about every ASUS GPU, motherboard, monitor, router, keyboard, mouse, headset and cooler that ASUS offers, so if you're going to be getting a new monitor/GPU/motherboard, why not get some free Steam games to go with it?
