We may celebrate Thanksgiving at different times but as our American neighbours recover from this week’s turkey and fixings with a little retail therapy, we too will join in the shopping frenzy that is Black Friday.

The much-anticipated shopping day falls on November 29, 2013 and retailers are offering extended hours, not-to-miss markdowns, giveaways and special perks to get into the festivities. For those of you who want to avoid the crowds, Cyber Monday will follow when the deals hit the web for your at-home convenience. Like never before, shopping deals are available on both sides of the border with brands like Old Navy having a storewide fifty percent off sale and the chance for one lucky shopper to become a millionaire by the end of the day. Heyo! Cyber Monday 2013 will also prove launch day for M.A.C, as the cosmetics company is adding to the hype by launching a black lipstick dubbed “Hautecore” online only.

Now that you’ve browsed our 2013 holiday guide and your shopping list has started to take shape, this weekend will be a great time to tackle your gift buying. We’ve gathered the best deals, perks and services to expect before and during Black Friday and not forgetting Cyber Monday. We’ll keep updating our list so do check back.
