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, Apple TV, accessories, and more.

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.

Unless you have a lot of Apple gift cards or you're doing a customer order, why would anyone buy from Apple when you can get better deals from other retailers on almost every item? And that's even after factoring in the 3% daily cash back you'd get with the Apple card. Apple's Black Friday deals just aren't competitive.

Ignore the great deals from other sellers. Buy from Apple for more $$$ and the premium buying experience.

Is this promo available on the edu store?

I second this question. I’ve been wanting a Mac mini and this might do it if the promo is available with student discounts.

It’s unlikely the Mac Mini will get a lower price once the M2 Mac Mini is released, huh? ?

I prefer to call it Thanboxing Day.

I hope everyone is having a nice Thankboxing Day Eve.
