Black Friday Came Early This Year

Nitin Sumangali |

The emergence of Thanksgiving as a key shopping day to rival Black Friday was in full effect in 2013. With MasterCard Spending Pulse showing Thanksgiving 2013 sales up 23.68 percent year over year, and Black Friday sales up only 2.87 percent, together they lifted Thanksgiving “season” sales, if that’s the right word, fully eight percent.

Check out MasterCard Advisors’ Sarah Quinlan on Bloomberg TV where she discusses what these changes mean for the rest of the holiday shopping season.
