UPDATED: Black Friday is Back! Here's a Curated List of Top Supplier Deals

Black Friday deals are calling! Known for its bargains, Black Friday (a U.S.-born post-Thanksgiving shopping frenzy) has also been criticized for fostering overcrowded stores and occasional incidents of unruly behaviour. In recent years, retailers have extended their Black Friday promotions to last for several days, and others have started to offer deals earlier in NOV, blurring the lines between Black Friday and the rest of the holiday shopping season.

Open Jaw has curated a list of suppliers offering Black Friday and Cyber Monday incentives with the cost-conscious, luxury-inspired traveller in mind - but these deals require no waiting in line.
