Top Deals, Comments, Forum Posts, Members of The Month and Other Stats for September 2016

Last month, Spackbace posted the deal: 1 Free Burger @ Grill'd Every Day from 4th-12th October - Sign up to 'Polished Man'. While donating to Polished Man was optional we were blown away that OzBargainers had donated ~$700 so we offered to match donations up to the intitial goal of $900. Fast forward to today and OzBargainers have donated $4,487! Great job everyone. Bonus points for OzBargainer Alan, who documented eating 14 different burgers during the week.

Next month we will be turning 10 years old and to celebrate this significant milestone, we are inviting retailers to participate in our 48 hour sale event from 21st November 2016 at 12PM to 23rd November at 11:59AM. Emails are currently being sent out but if you are a rep or know a retailer who would like to participate, please contact us on our OzBargain 10 Birthday Page. Discussion
