With two weeks until Click Frenzy 2019, aka ‘The Sale that Stops a Nation,’ we’re getting antsy imagining all the things we probably don’t need that we’re probably going to buy anyway.
$69 Virgin flights? Don’t mind if I do.
$1 GHD hair straightener? I’ll take ten. No, make it thirty!
50% off Lovehoney sex toys? Shhhhhhhhhh I said that’s private.

The very first Click Frenzy crashed the site almost immediately and problems with the delivery of emails plagued Click Frenzy Mayhem 2018.
The organisers assure us however that Click Frenzy November 2019 will go off without a hitch:
“We have engaged Amazon Web Services as our hosting partner, the world’s biggest public cloud hosting provider,” they told Yahoo Lifestyle.
