The promotion is available on Apple's online store, in the Apple Store app, and at Apple Store locations in Australia. As usual, refurbished products are not eligible for a gift card, and the offer cannot be combined with educational pricing.

Apple's four-day shopping event will also be available in the United States, Canada, UK, and select other countries starting on Black Friday.

Black Friday is one of the few occasions per year that Apple offers deals on its products, but better deals are often available through resellers like Amazon, so make sure to check out our Black Friday roundup and best Thanksgiving Day deals for the latest discounts on the iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, AirPods, accessories, and more.

Apparently some “customers” are taking advantage of unadvertised 100% discounts at the Apple store in San Francisco…

Double-checking that the U.S. gift card total is $50 for AppleTV and not the $70 Aussies are seeing…
Due to exchange rates, AU$70.00 = US$50.013937

The Apple Store has been down in the UK for a number of hours now and it’s only 9.30pm
They do like to build the anticipation ;)

They charge you for the gift card, but the value of the gift card is deducted from the cost of the product that you're purchasing.

For example, if you're buying something for $1,000 with a $200 gift card, you get charged $200 for the gift card plus $1,000-$200=$800 for the product. The end result is you pay full price for the product but get the gift card for free.
Yes that’s right. I replaced my AirPod pros and was billed £199 and £40 for the voucher. That’s £239 which is a retail price but of course I now have a £40 voucher
