Apple Offering Up to $200 Gift Card With Select Products on Black Friday Through Cyber Monday

Apple has announced its annual four-day shopping event, offering customers up to a $200 Apple Store gift card with the purchase of select products between Black Friday and Cyber Monday in the United States.


Apple has yet to reveal the full terms for its offer. Last year, most Macs came with a $200 gift card, while previous-generation iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch models were eligible for a $50 gift card. HomePod and Beats were also eligible for a $50 gift card, while the Apple TV was bundled with a $25 gift card.

Last year, the offer excluded the latest iPhone, iPad Pro, and Apple Watch models, as well as refurbished products, products purchased with an educational discount, and iPhones purchased via the iPhone Upgrade Program. AirPods, special edition Beats, and then-new MacBook Air and Mac mini models also did not qualify.

Apple's four-day shopping event runs November 29 through December 2 on Apple.com, by phone at 1-800-APPLE, and at Apple Stores.

The offer will also be available in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Poland, the Netherlands, Sweden, and several other countries, with gift card amounts varying.

As usual, there are better Black Friday deals on Apple products than what Apple offers itself, so be sure to check out our Black Friday roundup this week for all of the best discounts leading up to the big day. We'll also be highlighting various one-off deals throughout the week.

Update: As noted by MacGeneration, Apple is offering iTunes gift cards instead of Apple Store gift cards in some countries, such as France, Germany, and Switzerland.

Funny how Apple charges the same USD$ and GBP£ on all their products, but they're offering up to £160 not £200 vs up to $200 for gift cards. hmm.

Apple is not the place to shop on Black Friday. Amazon and Best Buy have been heavily discounting Apple’s latest products. For example, the AirPods Pro are currently $234.99 at Amazon. Other companies are just providing better discounts.

Anyone know if they’ve allowed these gift cards to be given along with the education discount in the last couple of years?

I mentioned this in the article, but for those just skimming, the TL;DR is no gift cards for edu-discounted products.
