Black Friday 2016

Black Friday, which takes place on November 25th in 2016, 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 $125 off all iPad Pro models at Best Buy will 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.

Cyber Monday

Target

Many big box stores and online retailers are also offering discounts on a wide range of products in celebration of "Cyber Monday," the deals event that follows Black Friday.

We've rounded up dozens of the best Cyber Monday deals in our dedicated Cyber Monday post, so make sure to check it out if you missed out on Black Friday discounts.

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.

Check Deals Locally

Not all deals are offered at all retail locations, so it's a good idea to get in touch with your local retail outlet ahead of Black Friday to confirm deals and to potentially get an idea of what product stock might look like.

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

- Amazon: Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, 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
