Apple has a good annual tradition, called Black Friday, when the company offers many of its products at lower prices, with discounts usually ranging from 10% to 15%. This year is not going to be different, based on a leaked sales brochure unearthed by 9to5Mac.
According to the brochure, on Black Friday customers will be able to buy Macs paying $101 less, iPads for $41 to $61 less (depending on the capacity), iPod touch for $21 to $41 less (16GB, 32GB, 64GB, depending on the capacity as well), and the iPod Nano for $11 less, either the 8 GB and the 16 GB devices.
The deals are almost identical as the offers of last year, though the discounts dig deeper into Apple’s inventory.
Still, these deals are good enough in case you want to buy direct from Apple, but you can also save about $200 on the MacBook Air 13 at Best Buy right now, and grab other Apple notebook Black friday deals without waiting in line. There is also a number of iPod Touch deals, with $5 off and a $50 store gift card, which is a much more better deal.
However, it seems like there’s still no discount on the iPhone 4S or its predecessor.
Apple will also offer a line of Black Friday deals on accessories for such devices as the iPad, iPhone and Macs. It is a good chance for bargain hunters, and one of the few times when customers can actually find Apple deals in the Apple Store.
So, here is the list of some accessories below:
- $21 off the Jawbone Up
- $11 off the Apple Wireless Keyboard and Wireless Magic Trackpad
- $5 off $50 iTunes Gift cards
- $21 off the Mophie Juice Pack Air
- $11 off the iPad 2 Smart Cover
Among all these things on the sale are also a great number of various third-party accessories, such as Griffin Beacon Universal remote, Speck CandyShell cases for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, Jawbone Up, and a Phillips clock radio, among other products.
Well, new prices are almost the same as the previous ones but Apple lovers can also save some amout of money. For example, in 2010, Apple’s sale included $101 off the iMac, MacBook Pro, and Macbook Air, as well as $41 off the iPad. Since time passed, Apple has also put an array of software and accessories on sale, such as its iPad case, wireless keyboard, iPad Dock, and Magic Mouse, as well as third-party accessories.
Apple Inc. isn’t the one in its Black-Friday-offerings idea. Some of retailers are holding sales on a large assortment of products including laptops, tablets, HDTVs, and other items on people’s holiday shopping list. Even more, there are also offerings from Best Buy, Amazon, OfficeMax, and Staples. Also check out the 19 Pre-Black Friday Deals You Can’t Afford to Miss slideshow below.
