It’s Black Friday – which is better than it sounds!!

Earlier this week I made a brief mention of the fact that it is Black Friday in the US today! Now in case you don’t know what that means…. Black Friday and (more recently) Cyber Monday sales take place on either side of the US Thanksgiving weekend and they are INSANE!! Many shops offer amazing discounts and specials that make this THE shopping weekend of the year. And this year the bonus is that South African shoppers can take advantage of some of these special discounts and deals using their MasterCard and the Cross Border promotion.

Selected merchants have made available addtional specials to South African shoppers… for instance Bloomingdale’s – one of the best loved stores in the US is offering a Big Brown Bag Sale starting today through to Sunday 1 December for every $200 you spend, they will take off $25! Plus you can save up to 50% off a terrific selection of sale items across the site and FREE Standard Shipping applies on orders of 1,000 ZAR or more when using your MasterCard and the promo code: MCSHOP

Here are some of the designer bags on sale that caught my eye at Bloomingdales….
