Black Friday, the biggest retail day of the year, is almost over and we’re heading into the weekend. Don’t worry, the deals don’t stop, as Cyber Monday is right around the corner, so there’s still plenty of time to pick up a bargain. However, some of the best deals may end once Saturday is over, so if you’re still deliberating, it’s best to make the decision quickly.
Black Friday was originally an in-store thing, but that’s no longer the case: With those yearly viral videos of people battling to the death in brick-and-mortar retail stores, it’s not hard to see why more people are staying home to score their Black Friday deals online. Whether you’re going online to do your Black Friday shopping this year or you’re heading out to the stores in person, you’ll have to be vigilant to find the best Apple Black Friday deals, as these high-ticket tech items don’t often go on sale.
Apple Black Friday Deals
Apple isn’t a company that often holds large-scale sales, and sure enough, its Black Friday 2018 deals are a repeat of its 2017 efforts. This means when you buy a new product, at full price, you get a free gift card worth between $50 and $200 to spend on other Apple Store items. The card should be valid for all Apple’s stores, including the App Store.
The value of the gift card depends on the product you buy:
- Get a $200 gift card for: MacBook, MacBook Air (excludes new MacBook Air), MacBook Pro, iMac, iMac Pro and Mac Pro
- Get a $100 gift card for iPad Pro 10.5”
- Get a $50 gift card for iPad 6th Generation (9.7”) and iPad mini 4
- Get a $50 gift card for iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, iPhone 7 and 7 Plus
