Apple is not offering gift cards for its latest products, including the 16-inch MacBook Pro, AirPods Pro, iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro models, or Apple Watch Series 5 models, while the Mac mini, iPod touch, old Mac Pro, refurbished products, education-discounted products, and carrier-locked iPhones are also ineligible.

The offer is available via Apple.com in each country and at Apple Stores in Australia through December 2, 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 $200 in the United States.

Black Friday marks one of the few times in a year that Apple offers deals on its products, but as usual, better deals can be found elsewhere. Be sure to read our Black Friday roundup for the latest offers from third-party resellers on the latest iPhones and iPads, the 16-inch MacBook Pro, AirPods Pro, and more.

Apple has shared full terms and conditions on its website.

National Chains such as "The Good Guys" have the base model Macbook Pro 16" for $AU380 less than Apple. So that doesn't follow.

But they pay the discount from their pockets, to get people in the shop, not Apple.

Unfortunately, newly released products are not included. Such as the Apple Watch Series 5, or the Macbook Pro 16". It means I will have to go to another store.

I really wish Apple were prepared to provide decent 'new item' deals ahead of Christmas.

No deals for new items that’s disgustingly greedy!!!!

It would be disgustingly stupid to discount new products that are already stretching the supply chain to breaking point.
