Black Friday kicks off the holiday shopping season with a frenzy of fabulous deals from our favourite retailers, online and in-store. Opening early and closing late, stores will boast promotions and discounts of many varieties – some even 50-70% off – and the sales typically last a few days. It’s been a post-Thanksgiving shopping tradition in the States since the 1960′s and tons of stores have jumped on the bandwagon, including many north of the border!
You don’t have to be a fashionista to know about Black Friday; deals extend to electronics, home furnishings, housewares, toys, travel and so much more. But the truth is, while many Canadian retailers have jumped on the Black Friday bus, the deals are still better in the States, causing many Canadians to literally jump on a bus to go shopping there! And let’s not forget the painful shipping and duty fees if you’re shopping online.
MasterCard Canada wants to bring the incredible American Black Friday Deals to Canadians and have been working closely with top US retailers to deliver Black Friday deals north of the border!
