Huge Black Friday sales are approaching fast, Get ready for the year’s biggest shopping weekend we’ve got all of the details on what to expect from Apple this year
This year’s Black Friday sales will be a little different due to the ongoing health crisis, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be any deals. Instead, retailers like Apple will be encouraging more people to shop from home so we expect to see some stellar online-exclusive deals.
Last year, Apple’s Black Friday sale consisted of bundled gift cards of up to $200 with the purchase of devices like MacBooks, iPads, Apple Watch, Apple TV, and more. Since the Apple Card is now in way more wallets this year, it’s possible that we’ll see some extra incentives for users of Apple’s credit card.
We have all the information you need for Apple’s Black Friday 2020 event right here, and we will continue to update this page as we find more details.
Does Apple do Black Friday sales?
Yes, it does, but only sort of. Apple tends to avoid directly discounting the prices of its products even over big sale periods like Amazon Prime Day and Black Friday. Instead, we’re likely to see bundle deals and gift card giveaways.
Last year, we saw Apple give away a $200 Apple Store gift card with the purchase of select products between Black Friday and Cyber Monday in the U.S., for example. That means you can get an essential accessory like AirPods with the purchase of your new Mac or iPad, which is great if you’re in the market for that. If you want direct price cuts, you may want to look elsewhere. We’ve listed the best third-party retailers to keep an eye on below if price drops are more your bag.
When will Apple’s Black Friday event start?
Black Friday is officially November 27, though we’re likely to see deals at most retailers long before that date, Apple included. Black Friday has taken over most of November in recent years and issues like shipping delays, increased online orders, and a later placement of Thanksgiving (and therefore Black Friday) in the month mean that retailers will want shoppers to get their orders in earlier.
On top of that, Amazon Prime Day 2020 having taken place in mid-October might mean that the deals will just roll right on through the holiday season.
Of course, as soon as we spot it, we’ll drop it in here and highlight the info you need to know about.
