...and the sale hasn't even begun yet.

With less than one hour until Click Frenzy's™ slew of online sales is released (at 7pm AEST), shopaholics are already putting the miles onto their credit cards with early release sales being unveiled throughout the day.

While not all of these sales are part of the official Click Frenzy™ sale, it just goes to show how popular this online shopping event has become since its launch in 2012, suggesting that this year should be bigger and better than ever.

Already finder.com.au has seen an increase of almost 40% of customers scouring our up-to-date list of Click Frenzy™ deals page in the lead-up to the 7pm sales release. This compared to the number of customers who were on the page in the 24-hours prior to last year's November Click Frenzy™.

finder.com.au estimates that in this sale alone Australians will spend $110 million... and with more than 1,500 discounts across 200 retail brands to look forward too, it's an estimate that could even be exceeded.

Click Frenzy™ managing director Grant Arnott revealed to The West that headline deals this year will include a PlayStation 4 for $4 and a 65 inch LG TV originally priced at $2,500 going for $25. Note that these specific deals are for subscribers only.

For those of us who aren't subscribers, there are plenty of other stellar deals that you can snatch up including up to 85% off homewares and 80% off beauty items.

While the biggest time to shop for Click Frenzy™ is obviously in the first few hours of the sale, our research shows that the second busiest time comes between 2pm and 5pm tomorrow (17 May 2017), so if you're finding it hard to shop your favourite retailer, waiting a few hours could relieve some frustration and see you through to that all-important checkout.

Last year's Click Frenzy™ saw 1.2 million visitors swarm its site seeking for bargains. This year Arnott predicts that will increase to 1.5 million.
