Deals: Black Friday Prep Begins, New Anker Discounts, Targus Sitewide Sale, and More

by

We're just over two weeks away from Black Friday 2018, and in preparation we have begun compiling sales that we know are coming in our dedicated Black Friday Roundup. This Roundup includes sales on Apple devices and other tech-related items that have been shared early ahead of the shopping holiday, or in some cases have leaked online.

So far, we know that Target will have sales on iPhone, Apple Watch, and iPad mini 4. Apple Watch Series 3 will be marked down by $80 (as low as $199 for the 38mm GPS only model), and the iPad mini 4 will be available for $249.99, a $150 discount from the regular price of $399.99. Macy's is matching Target's sale on Apple Watch Series 3, and Costco will have its on sale on the 32GB 9.7-inch iPad from Early 2018, priced at $249.99, down from $319.99.

So far, other major retailers with Black Friday deals we know about include Belk, Kohl's, JCPenney, and Dell, so we're still waiting on other companies like Best Buy, Walmart, The Home Depot, GameStop, and more. The shopping tracker site BestBlackFriday.com is keeping track of all these ad scans, deals, and more. For specific discounts, offers, store times, and more related to Black Friday, be sure to keep an eye on our Black Friday Roundup as we'll continuously update it leading up to November 23.

Ahead of Black Friday, Anker has outlined its promo codes for the month of November, this time including a few USB-C cables and accessories that will pair well with the new 2018 iPad Pro. The full list of Anker's new Amazon sale can be found below, and be sure to pay attention to the expiration dates and place your order before the codes are discontinued.

Mobile accessory company Targus recently began a new 15 percent off sitewide sale that will last until the end of 2018, timing that will be perfect for both early and late holiday shoppers. Targus is known for its laptop bags and cases, luggage, iPad cases, and the company also makes multiple docking stations that support USB-C/Thunderbolt 3. You can get 15 percent off your order using the promo code TARGUS15SAS, which includes items on the Targus sale page.

Additionally, Targus is offering free shipping with no minimum using promo code FREESHIPPINGSAS. These codes can't be used within the same order, however, so you'll have to choose which works best with your purchase. For all orders, Targus offers free shipping when your cart exceeds $35. Head to Targus to start browsing, and you have until December 31 to place your order and take advantage of the sitewide and free shipping promo codes.

Over on iTunes, this week Apple introduced an "Iconic Moments" movie sale, offering a group of films at a reduced price of $7.99 with new pieces of cover art that reference memorable moments within each film. Check out all of the movies in the list below, and if you're interested be sure to pick up the movies before next Tuesday, when the iTunes Movies store will refresh again.

$150 Apple Gift Card for every Mac purchased is not money off. And I think it was only $50 or $100 for an iPhone.

Yes and those are their black Friday deals. So if I can wait a week or two and get 50-100 off, I think it's worth it.

When does Apple normally announce what their own deals for Black Friday are going to be? I need to buy another unlocked iPhone, but if I can save some money, waiting is OK by me.

When is Anker going to start doing USB C to Lightning? Didn't Apple recently start licencing these?

We're just over two weeks away from Black Friday 2018

That was a wake up call! I have no idea where the time is going. Should probably start prepping for all the family coming into town for Thanksgiving.
