Here's a Look at Some of the Black Friday Apple Deals Coming to Best Buy, Target, and Walmart

With a little over one week until Black Friday -- the popular shopping holiday in the United States -- most of the major retailers have shared the deals you can expect to see when you're out shopping or online next Friday, November 24. Because we're so close to some of the best deals of the year on multiple Apple products and accessories, as usual it's worth being aware that you may want to hold off on making purchases or taking advantages of sales in the days leading up to Black Friday.

Thanks to deal leaks and official announcements, our Black Friday Roundup already has a pretty good idea of the sales you can expect on Apple products next week from places like Best Buy, Target, and Walmart. Below we've rounded up some of the best sales that have been announced for each retailer, along with the times you can expect to show up at each store. Note that many deals overlap, so it'll come down to personal preference and location for which retailer you choose to purchase from.

Best Buy


Like many other retailers, Best Buy's Black Friday sale actually starts on Thursday, kicking off at 5:00 p.m. local time on Thanksgiving, November 23. Stores will then close at 1:00 a.m. local time before opening up again at 8:00 a.m. local time on Black Friday. One of this year's most notable sales (across most retailers) is for the 2017 9.7-inch iPad Pro with 32GB of storage, at just $250 for the Wi-Fi only model.

Target


Target will open its doors slightly later than Best Buy, at 6:00 p.m local time on Thursday, November 23. However, the store will close at midnight and then re-open a bit earlier than Best Buy on Friday, November 24 at 6:00 a.m. If you're looking for an Apple Watch, and are okay with investing in an older generation model, Target will have one of the best discounts running this Black Friday with Series 1 models at just $180.

Walmart


Walmart's Black Friday sales will kick off at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 23 in Walmart stores. Deals will be available all day online.

  • Get a $300 Walmart Gift Card with the purchase of an iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus on AT&T Next or a Verizon Device Payment plan (limited to in-store)
  • Straight Talk Wireless 32GB iPhone 6 available for $129, a $70 discount off of the regular price.
  • Walmart plans to offer the 32GB 9.7-inch iPad (2017) for $249, down from the regular price of $329.
Of course, there are many other announced sales coming next week, including some at eBay, Newegg, Staples, Macy's, and more. Be sure to check out our Black Friday Roundup to keep an eye on any discounts you're looking for this year, which will also include hundreds of popular apps for iOS and macOS as the shopping event gets closer.

Best deal is the $159 for Beats Studio3 Wireless headphones!

Agreed but I’m guessing it will be the studio 2 not the 3.

Politely, I would call that reasonably priced rather than ridiculously inexpensive.

I commend Apple for implementing the 2017 9.7 iPad at a lower market tier. Especially considering the fact that They have never had an iPad this inexpensive before.

Also, the fact that Apple is offering an alternative entry-level price point for somebody that wants to experience an iPad, it's a brilliant move and it creates diversity in the iPad line up. And then when you factor in that Black Friday discount at almost $85, that's inexpensive and more budget friendly for those who have no need for the higher their Pro's.



Yeah, its an iPad at an Android price point, without the aggravation of actually owning an Android device. :)

You're correct, Series 1 for $179.00 is excellent. And it offers almost everything somebody would need with the exception of the GPS and water resistance, and you still have the faster S2 processor.

Disagree. Reasonably Priced is what an entry-level iPad is Listed at $329 for what you're receiving by MSRP. Given the fact that this is the lowest I have seen this specific iPad at $250, it's ridiculously inexpensive for an Apple product that will meet the majority of consumers usage for that price point, which likely wouldn't be found any cheaper aside from further discounts.


I understand what you're saying, but for some folks $329 is a lot. I'll politely disagree about $329 or $250 being reasonable considering the age of some of those parts. At any rate, $249.99 is cheaper than what Apple charges so it's an okay deal for that iPad. Trying to ask Apple to lower prices while the almighty bean counter is in control is not going to happen.

Then again, I was foolish enough to hand over far more than this for two iDevices I do not use enough for them to be worth the expense. Will not pay northwards of $1k on any Apple product except a Mac ever again.

It's all relative. It might be cheap for an Apple product, but it's not cheap enough for me.

You stated $239 is a lot, which I think any Apple hardware product tends to be expensive. But what about the fact that many likely don't have all the needs and capabilities for the price point of an entry-level iPad Pro? That's unaffordable for many as well, so it seems your definition of an affordable is rather subjective. It's not just about the price point of an entry-level iPad, it's about the iOS support, hardware build and customer service that is included as well. Considering the iPad is the most popular tablet on the market, I commend Apple for implementing the 2017 9.7 iPad at a lower market tier. Especially considering the fact that They have never had an iPad this inexpensive before.

Also, the fact that Apple is offering an alternative entry-level price point for somebody that wants to experience an iPad, it's a brilliant move and it creates diversity in the iPad line up. And then when you factor in that Black Friday discount at almost $85, that's inexpensive and more budget friendly for those who have no need for the higher their Pro's.


It's all marketing. The "New iPad" is essentially an iPad Air 1 released in 2013 with a few minor upgrades. Sure it's a bargain compared to an iPad Pro but "ridiculously inexpensive" does not accurately describe anything Apple makes IMO. It just appears that way since they're ridiculously expensive most of the time.

If all of the BestBuy stores are like the local ones here, do not expect a wide selection of watch bands.

This one had three. All black. One was a Nike+. They have had, on occasion, a blue woven one. The local Target had a choice: black, or white. That was it.

But BestBuy (WorstTry) has a plethora of their own private brand crap bands. (Figures)

I clicked the link it went straight to the 3 page on the Target website, I mean, I hope it is, but, it seems that it may be too good to be true.

I went straight to the ad and unfortunately they’re the 2
