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.

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.

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

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