Click Frenzy: Good Deals or Just a Marketing Exercise?

neil on 22/08/2013 at 4:21 pm, filed under OzBargain

While Click Frenzy is a big marketing exercise, do the events provide good deals? The first incarnation of Click Frenzy was so popular that their website and related retailer’s […]

Posting Lasoo Offers on OzBargain Now Even Easier

scotty on 19/07/2013 at 5:12 pm, filed under OzBargain

Most OzBargainers would know who Lasoo is — Australia’s latest online catalogues site that’s part of Salmat. They provide online catalogues for many big retailers such as DickSmith, Aldi, IGA, Harvey Norman, etc — many are also hosted on retailers’ own domains. While I have been critical on their past attempt on a community website, […]
