This year we do not publish a fully-fledged Black Friday-related article, but instead release several news-stories covering hot prices on popular products. Please note that in many cases Black Friday prices are valid in online stores from Black Friday through Cyber Monday. Nonetheless, some offerings are limited in time or quantities the retailer/e-tailer has.

Apple is one of a few companies in the industry which actually follows its recommended prices and unless it needs to clear-out the stock, it does not cut its prices. However, even Apple has to offer bargains during the Black Friday – Cyber Monday weekend and it actually does. Numerous Apple resellers among leading retailers offer direct or indirect discounts on popular iPad media tablets, Apple itself and authorized stores have even more to offer.


Apple MacBook

Apple MacBook laptops are among the most popular in the U.S. Regrettably, they are also pretty expensive, especially with configurations that provide improved performance. Luckily, there are a number of ways to save on them during Black Friday: 

  • Apple Store provides $150 gift card with every purchase of any MacBook Air, MacBook Pro or MacBook Pro with Retina display.

  • MacMall also cut MacBook Air pricing by $101 to $279 depending on configuration.

Apple iPad

The iPads are among the most popular products that Apple produces. In a bid to sell more of them, Apple intentionally reduced its profit margins to below the company’s average. Nonetheless, it looks like the company still have opportunities to cut iPad prices:

The new iMacs not only look good, but they also have high performance, rich functionality and decent displays. Moreover, they can be obtained at lower cost than normally:

  • With the purchase of every iMac all-in-one desktop, Apple grants $150 gift card that can be used in Apple store.
