It seems like everyone is geared up for the coming Black Friday, which of course comes after Thanksgiving Day on Thursday (November 28). Last week, most major retailers have already announced their anticipated Black Friday deals that everyone could look forward to.
A few days ago, Microsoft Corp announced its own lineup of attractive deals for its customers on Black Friday, which would mostly stretch out until the Christmas holiday shopping season. This time, it is Apple Inc’s turn to make known its own Black Friday deals that would be rolled out on November 29. But for Apple’s offers, it would only be a day-long shopping event.
The technology firm is of course expected to bring about deals for its popular products like Mac, iPad, and iPhone. The company has confirmed that it would definitely offer its very own version of anticipated bargains for those shoppers who are looking forward to this Friday’s retail event.
However, Apple chose not to release specific information about pricing schemes for its offers. It simply disclosed that its own deals would be available online beginning on midnight of Thanksgiving eve. On Friday, the deals would be rolled out across various Apple stores nationwide. It could already seem late but Apple is trying to create a special Apple Store app to facilitate simpler and faster purchasing of its goods.
Most consumers could only take a guessing game this time. But Apple, which is known for being almost traditional on its sale schemes, has already created a pattern when offering Black Friday specials. The company usually introduces up to $100 markdown on its Macs. It also usually trims down iPad costs by up to $50.
The amount of discounts may depend on particular models. But Apple’s offers are not all about prices. The technology giant also usually offers free shipment to further sweeten its one-day deals.
Sold at retailers
Some retailers are not making special Apple marked down offers on Friday. But most of them would be bundling the devices with special gift cards. For instance, at Target, the $300 iPad Mini Wi-Fi (16GB) would come with gift cards worth up to $75.
But some retailers are cutting off prices of selected Apple products. Best Buy is slashing $100 off the iPad 2 Wi-Fi tablet (16GB), which would be sold for $300. Staples would lower iPad Air Wi-Fi to $450, translating to a $50 discount.
