It's not too late. You still have time to grab those bargains!

Click Frenzy™, the massive online shopping sales event put on by Global Marketplace, kicked off with a bang at 7pm last night releasing deals across fashion, electronics, homewares and travel of up to 85% off RRP.

While officially these sales are meant to run for 24 hours only, some retailers have now announced they are pushing on past tonight's 7pm deadline and extending their sales until midnight instead.

This decision stands to benefit not just the retailer and the consumer, who now have more opportunity to sell and shop, but employers as well.

According to a finder.com.au survey, more than one in three employees (36%) shop online while in the office. This costs businesses around $457 million a week in wages alone.

Sales such as these that run until 7pm, which is hardly enough time to shop in your personal time after a full day's work, could potentially be adding to this. Our research on last year's Click Frenzy™ revealed that the second busiest time to shop (after the initial sales launch) was between 2-5pm on the second day of the event. This suggests that Click Frenzy™ shoppers either only work/study in the mornings or are shopping their afternoon away at the work table.

With this sales extension, shoppers may now be relieved of their sneaky afternoon shopping spree with the chance to snap up the same bargains from the comfort of their own homes.

These are some of the retailers that are going gangbusters with sales until 11:59pm tonight.
