BestBuy Black Friday sales for Apple Products

Online and retail stores are already starting to promote their upcoming "Black Friday" sales. Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving in the United States and marks the traditional start to the holiday shopping season. The day brings early store openings and deep discounts from many retailers, and ranks as one of the busiest shopping days of the year.

BestBuy has posted a preview their Thanksgiving/Black Friday sales advertisement already showing the following discounts on Apple products:

- $45 off an iPad 2
- $150 off $1199 MacBook Pro
- $150 off $1199 iMac
- $10 off $99 Apple TV
- $100 iTunes Card for $80

Apple also typically participates in Black Friday sales with more moderate discounts. Last year, Apple offered $101 discounts on their iMac, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air lines, with $11-$41 discounts on the iPods and iPads.

Online retailers MacMall and MacConnection also offer similar online sales, typically offering the deepest available discounts. We'll provide more coverage on specific discounts as Black Friday approaches.

interesting...

But FYI, as has been reported here before I believe, Amazon has had :apple:tv for $10 off for a few weeks now.

Also, every flier I've seen for MicroCenter (brick & mortar store, Columbus, OH) has had $50 off iPad 2's for a few months.


EDIT: I share some seemingly pertinent sale info... someone votes me down. People are strange. FYI: Amazon & MicroCenter are just as reputable as BB, if that's what that was about. It's not like i'm talking about some grey-market Brooklyn dealer... Just sayin'.

Double-EDIT: Hmmm.... maybe the vote-down was cuz I called the above story "interesting". If so, fair enough. :rolleyes:

Last year Apple had a $41 discount for iPads, so I'll probably look into that if anything. Much easier to take a $4 loss than going to Bestbuy for a few hours.

I'd pay full price to avoid best buy.

MacExperience in Indianapolis (Apple Specialist and AASP) is giving away an 11" MacBook Air (among other things)

Also, they just opened a new location in the Greenwood Park Mall... looks like a cool store and great alternative to the Apple Store.

Apple saving anyone money is news. $45 to $100 is still a discount. Add what one saves in sales tax and it's enough to buy dinner for two.

The rest of the year, Apple offers nothing. So...
