Staples and Radio Shack to Offer Modest Black Friday Discounts on iPads, iPods, and More

Customers looking for discounts on Apple products this Black Friday have two more retailers to add to their shopping lists -- Staples and Radio Shack. Black Friday discount website BFads recently published leaked sales flyers from both retailers in advance of the biggest shopping day of the year.

Staples is offering discounts on a variety of Apple gear, including $80 off the 16GB iPad Air WiFi ($319), $60 off the Retina iPad mini 2 ($239), $70 off the iPad with Retina Display ($279) and $20 off the Apple TV ($79). The office supplier also is taking 10 percent off all Beats by Dr Dre headphones and 15 percent off all iTunes gift cards of $50 or more. As an added bonus, customers with an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus can save time during checkout by using Apple Pay.

Radio Shack isn't offering any discounts on iPad or iPhone models, but the retailer still is lowering prices on the Apple TV ($85), iPod Touch 16GB 5th generation ($149), and iTunes gift cards (15 percent off). Other Apple-related items going on sale include the Beats Solo HD Drenched headphones ($69.99 After Mail-in Rebate) and a variety of Apple iPhone and iPad accessories.

Enough with this "black" Friday crap. I NEVER REMEMBER it being like this. People expect everything for nothing. Back in the day it was like only JCPenny's that took small discounts off clothes. Society today is pathetic and I'm ashamed im apart of it.

You don't ever remember retailers competing with each other on the price of goods?

Excellent! Then don't ever buy groceries or gas because those are the main places open on Thanksgiving. :p

If you don't want to be forced to work retail on Thanksgiving, get a job other than retail.
I work in retail and if it were that easy many people, including myself would do it. Times have changed drastically where if you want a better paying job than you can just "go get it"
