Apple announces its Black Friday deals: up to $200 Apple Store gift card with device purchase

Apple has announced its official Black Friday shopping event, which runs from Black Friday (Friday 29th) through Cyber Monday (December 2nd).

Following the release of Apple’s official guide, Apple is teasing its Apple Store deals today with a homepage banner, inviting customers to ‘save the date’. The company will offer up to $200 gift cards with the purchase of eligible Apple products like iPhones, iPads and Macs.

The exact details of the offer are yet to be announced. Apple says that gift card values vary based on products purchased, so be wary of the “up to” phrasing.

Gift card giveaways are Apple’s usual approach to holiday shopping deals. Rather than discount the price of its premium devices, it gives away a gift card with the purchase. With a $200 maximum value, users could get Apple AirPods ‘for free’ this Friday through Monday.

Of course, the Apple Store is not known for offering the most competitive Black Friday deals. The MacBook Air is already sold at $200 discount from list price and he latest 16-inch MacBook Pro is already discounted by a hundred dollars at Amazon before any real Black Friday promotions kick in.
