You can get excellent discounts on many Apple products right now including MacBooks, iPads, and AirPods.


If you’ve paid attention in previous Black Friday sales you probably know that Apple isn’t known for offering Black Friday discounts. Instead, Apple tends to offer Apple Gift Cards as a sales incentive, with the actual products often at or near full price. Apple is doing that again this year: Apple’s four-day shopping event starts on Nov. 27 and will include $50 gift cards for iPhones, $25 cards for the Apple Watch and AirPods, and so on.

If you’re more interested in saving money on your purchase, though, you’re in luck. Retailers are selling Apple products with sometimes deep discounts, and those sales have already started at stores like Amazon, Best Buy, Target and Walmart. Now’s your chance to save money on some of the most popular products including AirPods, Apple Watches, iPads, Beats headphones and MacBooks.

Here are the best Black Friday sales on Apple products that we can find right now. And we know that there are some impressive discounts coming later in the week, so check back regularly.

When is Black Friday?

By tradition, Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving, which makes it November 27 this year. But retailers are starting Black Friday sales very early this year—the first sale events were on November 3, and all the major stores are having online and in-store sale events all throughout the month.

While no major retailers are planning to have retail locations open on Thanksgiving day this year, expect most Black Friday sales to begin online on November 26, if not sooner.

Is there an Apple Black Friday sale?

Yes, Apple does have Black Friday promotions, but historically the company has offered Apple gift cards rather than lowering prices. This year, Apple’s four-day Black Friday event starts on Nov. 27. Here are some of the deals Apple has planned:

  • Get a $150 Apple Gift Card with the purchase of an eligible MacBook Pro.
  • Get up to a $100 Apple Gift Card when you buy an Apple TV and HomePod.
  • Get up to a $100 Apple Gift Card with the purchase of an iPad Pro or iPad mini.
  • Get a $50 Apple Gift Card with the purchase of an eligible Beats headphone.
  • Get a $50 Apple Gift Card with the purchase of an iPhone SE, iPhone 11, or iPhone XR.
  • Get a $25 Apple Gift Card when you buy an Apple Watch Series 3.

Where can I find the best Black Friday deals on Apple products?

You’re much more likely to find compelling deals on Apple products from major retailers than from Apple itself. Stores like Best Buy, Target, Walmart and others incorporate Apple deals into their Black Friday sales, and Amazon often matches those prices, giving you a lot of opportunities to save. In fact, right now Amazon has most of the best prices.

Already, we’ve seen some great prices on Apple products, including $99 AirPods at Best Buy, Walmart and Amazon—the lowest price ever for Apple’s true wireless earbuds. That short-lived sale has already expired, but it bodes well for more excellent sales as we get closer to Black Friday.
