From its hilarious commercials to its revolving door of discounts, Catch (previously known as "Catch of the Day") has become an online shopping staple in Australia, known for its "screamin' good deals."
Everyone knows you can save money shopping at Catch, but not everyone knows the ins and outs of the many different deals sections, how to get the biggest savings, and when the best time of year is to shop at Catch for various products - and that's just what we're here to tell you!
In our guide below, you'll find everything you need to know about finding the perfect deal for you, at the lowest price.
Difference Between Each Section of Deals
There are many different deals sections at Catch, but what do they all mean? What do they all offer? I know when I started shopping at Catch, I found multiple sections packed with deals, but I didn't know where to go to find a discount on something specific. The mass of offers can be overwhelming, so take a look at this breakdown to help clarify the deals sections at Catch.
This section is pretty self-explanatory. It's all the hottest deals Catch is currently promoting, usually for the latest products. This section covers every product category on its site, from summer fashion to electronics. This isn't the section you go to if you already have a deal or product in mind, but it's a great place to look if you're on the hunt for gifts or just window shopping to see what's available. These deals only last a few days maximum and sometimes only 24 hours, so if you see something you like in this - don't sleep on it!
The Catch clearance section is where you go when you're looking for the biggest savings on the site. In general, deals on Catch are anywhere from 20-50% off RRP, but in the clearance section, you can usually score an additional 30-50% off select product categories and brands. Again, this section is more of a window shopping section, but instead of the latest products, you'll find past trends and items. For example, instead of a discount on the iPhone X, you'll might find one on the iPhone 8.
Catch launched its Marketplace in 2017, providing a platform for a number of other retailers to sell great products across all categories. At the Catch Marketplace you'll find sellers like Bevilles, Lorna Jane - even Build-a-Bear, and it's a place where you will quite often score free shipping, particularly on bulky items. Unlike Today's Deals, Marketplace offers don't tend to have time limitations.
This section is specifically dedicated to deals on popular brands, in particular well-known fashion brands such as Seafolly, Billabong, Gucci, Prada and Bonds. So if you're looking for a specific items from your favourite brand, this is where you need to go. You'll also find popular tech, beauty, and home brands at this one; the likes of Apple, Maybelline, and Sheridan are popular stops at the Catch Outlet.

When to Shop at Catch
Depending on what you need, there are particular sale periods at Catch that have massive savings on exactly what you're looking for. Here is a list of the most popular sales at Catch throughout the year:
The Summer Sale at Catch
There are multiple sales throughout summer at Catch, but the main "Summer Sale" takes place usually during the first weekend of January. You can pick up all the summer essentials for up to 80% off, such as sunnies, patio furniture, sun umbrellas, and beach towels.
The Winter Sale at Catch
Also filled with tonnes of deals at up to 80% off, this Catch sale usually happens during a weekend in June or July, and lasts roughly two days. The products on sale are a bit more diverse than the summer sale, offering discounts on fashion and also outdoor sporting goods like snowboarding gear and hiking boots.
The Mother's Day Sale at Catch
For roughly a week before Mother's Day, you can find hot deals on popular gear at up to 75% off. Goodies include fab gifts for the mums in your life such as candles, perfumes, home decor, novelties and of course - wine!
In the weeks leading up to Mother's Day, you should also check out the Catch Marketplace; the Marketplace Mother's Day GiftGuide has some excellent offers from other sellers.
The Father's Day Sale at Catch
This one also falls roughly a week before Father's Day, and boasts sporting goods, barbeque essentials, and electronics at around 75% off.
Again, checkout the Marketplace Father's Day Gift Guide in the weeks leading up to Father's Day for the best offers from other retailers.
The Black Friday Sale at Catch
Ah, the sales event that trumps them all. The Catch Black Friday sale is known as one of the best because you can snag up to 90% off products across the website. Whether you need clothes, shoes, electronics, beauty products or household items, you're bound to find a massive discount on it during this event. The savings start early, usually around the 22nd of November, and end just before Cyber Monday. Speaking of which...
The Cyber Monday Sale at Catch
The Cyber Monday sale at Catch is almost just as good as Black Friday sale, with savings up to 80% off all the product categories and brands available online. The savings begin on the Monday following Black Friday and usually last just a day or two.
The Boxing Day Sale at Catch
The savings you'll find during the Catch Boxing Day sale are more similar to ones you'll find during the Cyber Monday sale as opposed to the Black Friday sale. Typically starting a few days before Boxing Day and sometimes lasting a week afterwards, the deals are sitewide and usually offer up to 80% off.
