Apple decided not to have a sale last year on Black Friday, but they are reversing that for 2016. A teaser has appeared on Apple’s homepage and in the Apple Store App for a one day sale this Friday. In fact, it uses a calendar alert on the Apple Watch to announce it.
In the past, Apple hasn’t genuinely discounted their products, but they did give out gift cards. For iPods, they typically gave out $25 gift cards, and computer purchases gave out around $100 gift cards.
Stores like BestBuy and Target are usually the best option to get a physical discount on the products themselves. We will update on Friday once Apple’s one-day sale deals go live.
