I received a flyer in the mail from Australia Post.

Which retailers will be in? Which won't jack up prices…?

      • So can we assume they will all be at the bottom?

        • Not if you go off last year. Sometimes it was top, sometimes bottom, sometimes both (at least for me).

  • They only had 1…

  • I found the paypal checkout was a bit slow… is the other payment method better? I managed to get the giftcard first time and but missed out on the xbox like everyone else.

    Maybe one of the three people with NBN optic fibre to their house got it lol

  • Thought I had scored the xbox.

    Checked out via PayPal and it's been showing the 'processing' icon with the circle around the padlock for well over 5 minutes.

    Looks like I'll have to click the cancel option.

  • Went all the way through, didnt say ' sold out ' when I first clicked it.

    Had all paypal details saved, click go without confirming the 'total amount' (lets be honest, its all about speed) and the Xbox had changed into a dummy product with about 20 numbers as the product name, with a total price of 0.45cents + 0.5cents GST.

    clicked proceed anyway, sure enough paypal charged me the 0.50 cents.

    Just cancelled it via paypal.

    • Sounds similar to what happened to me with the Gift Card. Oh well I'll let the 50centa sit in the hope it comes through :D

    • 50c for a click then you get the frenzy ;-)

    • no point cheating and looking at the back end, they are on to it

      • But some people love to look at back ends and cheat.

      • For the Lenovo one looks like they made a mistake in saying 30min window rather than one hour period

  • Instant sold out for me, and i clicked in the first second. ($100 GC)

    • where is the link?

    • Managed to snag one of these. There seems to have been good supply of them perhaps 50 odd based on my order number and the order number of a friend. You have to be really quick.

  • Am I right in that all the banners have been at the bottom of the screen? I thought I would try top and it failed…

    • no banner appeared on my screen.. lol

    I would imagine that I am not alone in being annoyed with the bait style advertising Clickfrenzy is conducting.

    I have already sent Global Marketplace (Clickfrenzy) an email this morning regarding these time and category specials. I believe they are conducting false and misleading advertising by failing to either disclose the number available or to provide sufficient stock to meet the expected demand. It is in sufficient to simply state "Only while stocks last." See Australian Consumer Law section 35. (See https://www.accc.gov.au/consumers/misleading-claims-advertis...) It is a form of bait advertising, with the objective to have people use their website and talk about the amazing specials on offer.

    If the emails and other advertising had even stated that these offers are in "short supply", it may have been acceptable. However, I think the issue goes even further than that. If there are only say 5 notebooks on offer, then clearly they never had any intention of meeting the demand. Thus the offer is not genuine sale offer, but a competition. In which case a whole different set of laws would have applied. The advertising would need to have made it clear that it was a competition and there are different regulations that apply.

    Later today I will draft up a form letter for to submit to the ACCC. For the adventurous playing along at home, I intend to take this issue to QCAT which will cost Global Marketplace around $500 in tribunal fees. Plus of course any addition costs they are likely to incur.

    • +2

      Totally agree - it is a competition pure and simple and should have been registered as such.

      • Not sure whether it needs to be registered or not. If indeed it is a competition, it is definitely one of skill and not chance. Quick fingers or bot programming ability seems to be the skill.

    • Good points. I think most are only accepting of this promotion only if treated as a competition (in which case quantities should be disclosed in T&Cs, they aren't). If treated as a item on sale (which they are given the transaction needed to claim) then reasonable quantities should be available. Even Aldi could argue they have 15 TVs per store and perhaps 50 customers line up at opening clamouring for one but the odds here are way skewed against "customers" let alone having selected an item and losing it in the purchase transaction. That's like a staff member taking your TV from your hands at the register saying you can't have it now because someone else does! ;-S

      Ultimately people just want transparency/honesty rather than being baited and feeling they had little or no chance in the first place even if they participated fully.

    • People complain about it every time Click Frenzy runs this. People report them to the ACCC. The promotions keep happening so reporting them does nothing.

  • +1

    I got a Gift Card, I think… We shall see

  • Think there were about 5+ ozbargainers who reportedthat they scored the $100 gift card in last year's forum. They probably have even less stock available this year.

    • Last year I got the gift card and an Xbox. This year is on a new a level for non gift-card items in terms of competitiveness. I got my gift card this year and I'm done.

  • If anyone gets the notebook please let me know so I can stop looking!

    • Been and gone at 10:55

  • Do I need popups enabled?

  • GONE!

    • Still didnt even see it :(

      What am I doing wrong….

      • you need to check on the page that is emailed to you if you subscribed earlier…usually a banner pops up on bottom of the page…

  • +2

    Lenovo laptop sold out. Don't blink. Ever.

  • Yep. PayPal must get slammed. Takes ages to process.

  • +1

    Is this even possible, I had it in the cart went to pay and gone. How would you do it? Thinking of giving up on this promotion :)

    • Yep. Check the 2016 thread. Not worth the time, effort, frustration, etc. Might as well buy a lotto ticket, same chances (probably not, but feels like it).

    • +1

      If they wanted to infuriate customers less they could just put a link up for an entry form for a short period during the hour from the link then just draw a winner(s) from that pool of entries. Of course it would be treated honestly then as a competition which it effectively is in reality rather than an item for "sale".

      • I reached stage till I had both tv and laptop on the cart. I clicked checkout and all turned custard..

        This time I took 10 seconds.

        People are buying in 5seconds it seems.

        • I can tell you it's less than 5 seconds. More like 2-3 seconds.

        • @oodian: people or Artificial intelligence buying it! I think people automated it somehow or clickfrenzy staff bought it all!

        • @s26f84:

          There is definitely cheating going on and I suspect automation or robots. I know CF is not a scam because I won an Xbox in the last competition. This year I don't believe it is possible for a human to react as quickly as what I am seeing. It's a pity that a few greedy individuals ruin it for everyone. They no doubt have multiple accounts/addresses and will probably sell their prizes on eBay etc.

  • Laptops sold out.

  • I'm confused… should I be re-freshing the page every second, or will the banner change by itself?

    • +1

      Should continue to refresh until it appears.

    • +1

      you wont get many tips here, there's fierce competition. As a point of rule, only refresh as fast as your internet connection allows.

      • Also they have people watching this website for collusion = Cheat

        They were so paranoid that they started adjusting the web pages placing fake products into the mix which they actually sold. = Illegal

        if you have Auto refresh running if it refreshes the item page and you did get through it took you to one of the fakes. = Cheat

  • The mail talks about being in a Category: AUTO, TOYS etc. But can't see any category on https://www.clickfrenzystore.com/

  • Can someone please post the clues on the 65" LG TV and PS4??? the emails are not coming through for me even though I am subscribed, and they don't seem to be updating the Click Frenzy Consumers page anymore with the latest link.

  • Thanks zeey2014!!!

  • PS4 gone

  • Blahhh you guys and your fast fingers

    • Did it last year and didn't win anything. Not doing it this year, but I honestly thing it is not an even playing field. If the winners aren't using scripts or something, then I reckon (and I have know knowledge if this is even technically correct/possible) it is something like people with the fastest internet or on the same provider of the website…they probably get the banner a few seconds faster than everyone else or something.

      Thoughts?
