Apple's Black Friday Promotion Now Underway in the U.S. and More Countries

Apple's annual four-day Black Friday through Cyber Monday shopping event is now underway in the United States and select other countries, with customers able to receive a free Apple gift card with the purchase of select products through November 29.

Participating countries include the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Ireland, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Poland, Austria, Hungary, Czech Republic, the United Arab Emirates, and select other regions.

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

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 for the latest discounts on the iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, AirPods, accessories, and more.

Apple's gift card values in the United States are as follows:

  • $50 for iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, and iPhone SE
  • $25 for second-generation or third-generation AirPods
  • $50 for AirPods Pro
  • $75 for AirPods Max
  • $50 for Apple Watch SE and Apple Watch Series 3
  • $100 for 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro
  • $100 for MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, and Mac mini
  • $200 for 27-inch iMac
  • $50 for Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD
  • $50 for Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro and iPad Air
  • $25 for second-generation Apple Pencil, Smart Keyboard Folio, MagSafe Duo Charger, and four pack of AirTags
  • $25 for Beats Flex and Beats Studio Buds
  • $50 for Powerbeats Pro, Solo3 Wireless, and Studio3 Wireless

As usual, many of Apple's latest products are excluded from the offer, such as iPhone 13 and Apple Watch Series 7 models.

Apple gift cards are now all-in-one and can be used towards the purchase of products, subscription-based services like Apple Music and Apple TV+, App Store apps, iTunes Store content like TV shows and movies, iCloud+ storage, and more.

Awesome! I’m glad Apple does this sale every Black Friday!

I’m going to place my order for the new 4K Apple TV right now

I’m getting the 64 GB one so it’s $199 & Apple includes a $50 gift card

I’m getting this for my living room LG TV which I just bought 2 years ago

I just placed my order for the new Apple TV but it’s currently backordered and says it’s getting delivered between December 7-14

Also noticed that the tax is calculated on the amount after factoring in the gift card

Not sure if that is only true for some states but I live in Massachusetts and the rate is 6.25%

Apple did the same thing last Black Friday when I bought my HomePod- instead of paying tax on $299, I paid tax on $199 because of the $100 gift card promotion

...but no mention on the page of the Homepod Mini :( (a reasonably-affordable entry into the 'world of Apple' for many)
yet Amazon are really plugging the Dots in their Black Friday sales.

A missed opportunity I think...
