Black Friday 2015

Black Friday, which takes place on November 27th this year, is a major shopping holiday in the United States. During the event, retailers around the country drop their prices on thousands of items, hoping to lure shoppers to their stores.

Apple products on the cheap are highly desired, and in recent years, retailers have offered some fantastic deals. We're gathering up a list of all the retailers, both online and in-store, offering discounts on iPhones, iPads, iPods, MacBooks, Beats headphones, Apple accessories, software, and more.

This roundup will be updated on a daily basis as Black Friday approaches. We'll highlight the very best deals that are being offered this year so MacRumors readers know where to go for the best discounts. If you spot a good deal or have a site offering a Black Friday discount, make sure to send us an email at tips@macrumors.com.

It's important to note that many of the deals listed below will be limited, especially those that are "doorbusters," or specific sales designed to draw people into a store. Deals like $100 off the iPad Air 2 at Best Buy will likely go quickly, as supplies tend to be limited, and some of these deals are limited to in-store purchases only.

Because deals can vary between stores and locations, it's best to double check these prices with local retailers before heading out to shop.

Shopping Tips

Doorbusters

Many of the Apple items listed are what stores like to call "Doorbusters" as they are products that are designed to get people in the store. These are often the store's best deals and tend to be very popular. People have been known to line up for several hours to be first in line to take advantage of one of the better deals, which means stock on a lot of Black Friday items could be limited.

Sales Tax

National retailers like Apple and Best Buy charge local sales tax on all orders, so when making an online order, it is best to consider all sales tax options. Ordering from smaller online retailers can be a benefit, as not all stores charge sales tax in all states. Customers in states where retailers do not collect sales tax may, however, be required to pay a calculated or estimated "use tax" on out-of-state purchases as part of their income tax filings.

Local sales taxes are automatically charged for online orders from the following retailers in the following states:

- Apple, Best Buy, Walmart, Sam's Club, Target: All States

- MacMall: California, Colorado, Illinois, New York, Tennessee, Minnesota, Georgia, North Carolina, Wisconsin

- Amazon: Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wisconsin

States with no sales tax: Alaska, Montana, New Hampshire, Delaware, Oregon

Search Tools

If you're looking for a specific deal on a product, many sites that aggregate all available Black Friday deals offer useful search deals to find the absolute best price available. BFAds.net, for example, lets users easily search through a wide selection of available discounts.
