Apple has finally taken the wraps off its Black Friday 2017 deals.
The Cupertino-based company has unveiled its Black Friday promotion via its Australian store, where it is already Friday November 24th.
In Australia, Apple is offering customers gift cards with certain purchases from its online store.
The US technology firm is offering gift cards worth up to A$210, some £120 converted, with the purchase of select Apple products.
The deal extends to iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and MacBook lines.
Although Apple has not confirmed whether the promotion currently available via its Australian store will be travelling to the UK at midnight, it does seem likely.
Apple offered customers gift cards of similar value in the UK last year.
Although it would be nice to get some money off the Apple products themselves – like Argos, John Lewis and Currys PC World are offering in their respective Black Friday deals – it’s still a nice gesture.
Still, the gift cards should allow you to stock-up on new accessories or additional Apple products from your local brick-and-mortar Apple Store, at Apple.com or by calling 0800 048 0408
Unfortunately, there are some products missing from the Black Friday deals.
Apple’s one-day promotion does not include the iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, or the Apple Watch Series 3.
Here’s what is on offer in the Apple Store online in Australia and New Zealand –
- Apple Store Gift Card worth up to A$140 when you buy iPad, iPad Pro, and iPad Mini 4
- Apple Store Gift Card worth up to A$70 when you buy iPhone 7, iPhone 6s, and iPhone SE
- An A$35 Apple Store Gift Card when you buy Apple Watch Series 1 models
- Apple Store Gift Card worth up to A$210 when you buy MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac or Mac Pro
For those who don’t know, Black Friday is an annual one-day sales event that originated in the United States and traditionally follows Thanksgiving Day – the fourth Thursday of November.
Black Friday – so called because it allows high street stores to get out of the red and “into the black”, thanks to the profits made during the sales – sees retailers slash prices in-store and online to capitalise on the holiday shopping rush.
Apple is not the only store offering UK customers the chance to get their Christmas shopping done at a discounted rate.
