After a stream of early teaser discounts followed by a torrent of great deals, the curtain has fallen on this year’s big Black Friday sales event. Many stores now open their doors early to Black Friday shoppers on Thanksgiving day, and in many places this former one-day blowout is now running all the way from Thanksgiving through the whole weekend, culminating in Cyber Monday (which has itself now grown into Cyber Week).
Since its beginnings, Black Friday has grown to become the best time of the year other than Prime Day to find deals on name-brand electronics like Apple iPads, AirPods, Apple Watches, MacBooks, Beats headphones, and iPhones. Although Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Cyber Week have all pretty much wrapped up, the holiday shopping season is far from over and there are more than a few online Apple deals still available for savvy shoppers to find — and we’ve got ’em right here.
Apple Extended Black Friday Deals
Empty Thanksgiving dinner plates now signal the official start of the Christmas shopping season. This year was no different, with many stores flinging open their doors to shoppers on Thanksgiving evening instead of waiting until Friday. This has become the norm, and Black Friday itself kicks off a whole season of sales that run from Thanksgiving until New Year’s Day and into January (with retailers anticipating post-Christmas shoppers looking to burn the gift cards and cash they got from Santa). Black Friday weekend and Cyber Week are both over now, though, and many of their bargains have disappeared with them, but quite a few holiday deals are still up for the taking — if you can find them.
If you’re determined to score the best last-chance Apple Black Friday bargains and extended Cyber Week discounts before they’re totally gone, you’ll need to keep one eye glued to big-box retail stores like Amazon, Best Buy, and Target, as well as to this page. The above price cuts on AirPods, Apple Watches, MacBooks, and iPads can help you scratch that itch for deals, steals, and all things Apple.
How to find extended Apple Black Friday deals
This year has been a gold mind for Apple fans, with plenty of new stuff released in 2019. Apple brought out two welcome surprises in the spring with the new iPad Mini and iPad Air, and many were also happy to see updated iterations of the Apple Watch Series 5, seventh-gen iPad, and iPhone 11 in the fall. That means that Cyber Week and the whole holiday shopping season is a fantastic time to find deals on 2018 devices like the Apple Watch Series 4, iPad Pro, and iPhone XS, but don’t overlook slightly older but still-awesome gadgets like the Apple Watch Series 3, sixth-gen 2018 iPad, and first-gen AirPods. As the remaining Cyber Week deals finally dry up, those last-gen items are almost always the best picks still remaining as they fly under the radars of shoppers who are focused on the newer products.
Finally, if something you were after sells out at one store, there’s a good chance that another retailer still has it in stock. We’re always rounding up all the latest deals on iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches, and MacBooks, so shop around and compare prices before handing over your cash (although if one place has the best deal on a certain item, worry not — that will be the one we list). Just don’t dawdle too much, as Black Friday weekend and Cyber Week are both over, so a lot of the best deals have already been claimed. If you’re looking for more great stuff after Cyber Week has ended, then you can also find other tech discounts, ongoing holiday sales, and much more on our curated deals page.
