Apple's Black Friday Event Begins in Australia: Up to $280 Apple Store Gift Card With Select Products
Apple's four-day Black Friday shopping event is now live in Australia and New Zealand, offering customers free Apple Store gift cards worth up to A$280 or NZ$320 with the purchase of select new Apple products.
Apple offers up to a $70 gift card in Australia and up to an $80 gift card in New Zealand with the purchase of select older iPhone models, including the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus. As usual, the deal does not extend to the latest iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, or iPhone XR.
The purchase of select Apple Watch Series 3 models or Beats headphones, including the Solo3, Studio3, and Powerbeats3, will also score customers a $70 or $80 gift card in Australia and New Zealand respectively.
Apple offers up to a $140 gift card in Australia and up to a $160 gift card in New Zealand with the purchase of select iPad models, including the 10.5-inch iPad Pro, sixth-generation 9.7-inch iPad, and iPad mini 4. Likewise, the deal does not extend to the latest 11-inch or 12.9-inch iPad Pro models.
Apple offers up to a $280 gift card in Australia and up to a $320 gift card in New Zealand with the purchase of select Macs, including the latest MacBook, MacBook Pro, iMac, iMac Pro, and Mac Pro models. The deal extends to the MacBook Air, but only the previous-generation model without a Retina display.
Apple offers up to a $35 gift card in Australia and up to a $40 gift card in New Zealand with the purchase of an Apple TV 4K or fourth-generation Apple TV. And in Australia, Apple offers a $70 gift card with the purchase of a HomePod. The speaker has yet to launch in New Zealand, so no deal there.
The deals are available via Apple.com in each country and at Apple Stores in Australia through November 26, which is Cyber Monday, an increasingly popular online-focused shopping holiday that follows Black Friday.
Apple will extend its Black Friday shopping event to the United States, Canada, and many European countries as the clock turns to Friday around the world. Last year, Apple offered gift cards worth up to $150 in the United States, but it could be up to $200 this year based on the Australian dollar amounts.
Apple's terms and conditions for the offer in Australia and New Zealand specify that there is a limit of two Apple Store gift cards per eligible product category, such as the Mac. Refurbished products do not qualify.
