Although there is no right or wrong way to celebrate thanksgiving, I believe Americans have switched up the holiday of giving thanks. We've got a sneak peek at some of the upcoming H&M deals below to help you prepare.

Unfortunately, the shopping mania can sometimes descend into violence, as people argue over discounted gadgets and appliances. Oh, and we're taking this opportunity to stock up on cozy sweaters because some of them will be marked down as low as $7. These previously included Topman, Asos, Matalan and Dorothy Perkins. So do your homework and compare prices prior to going out to grab some deals; this means comparing to online retailers like Amazon.

Asos has already released a 25% off deal on dresses. But, there are plenty of ways to indulge in the deals without subjecting your family to the headaches of a Black Friday spent in overcrowded department stores.

The limited time deals include the Apple Watch Series 3 for $325, which usually starts at $329; and a five-quart KitchenAid Stand Mixer for $249.99, which usually retails between $429.99 for $459.99.

However, deals are likely to improve in quality and quantity as Black Friday approaches.

Magnitude 5.4 quake strikes city of Pohang + 'Dispatch' photos of natural disaster aftermath
The quake was centred off the coast about 9.3 kilometres (5.8 miles) northwest of the port city of Pohang, according to the U.S. Residents in Seoul, which is more than 300 kilometers away from the epicentre, felt tremors, and said their buildings shook.

Elevated savings are common during Black Friday but always check for hidden costs, such as shipping, which can reduce the discount. This means many people have to spend their nights camping out on sidewalks to get to the good deals and many employees must spend their holiday night prepping for the influx of consumers.

A shopping list is a good idea.

A lot of the big retailers - including Amazon - get involved in the big discount eventWhat is Black Friday? Twenty-three percent said they engage in an equal amount of online and in-store shopping. For instance, large retailers might apply their deepest discounts to TVs with a specific model number, which makes it hard to be sure you're doing an apples-to-apples comparison. Online purchasing also offers an entry for those working a phishing scam, which is when emails made to look official seek confidential information or load malware onto a target computer. Call your credit card company days prior, making sure you have enough credit for your purchases. If you do use a credit card, use one that offers you rewards such as air miles or vouchers for money off your shopping to save even further.

If you're a savvy shopper and like to price match products, beware of some retailers who won't do that, such as Wal-Mart. Before you pick your favorite site, the BBB recommends that consumers find a reputable site and check them out at BBB.org.

From the evolution of "Cyber Monday" to the leaking of Black Friday ads weeks before they actually run in print, things just aren't like they used to be.
