Apple Black Friday 2011 Shopping Event: What to Expect
Apple has just announced a Black Friday shopping event for the Apple Online store and Apple Retail stores on November 25th.
These Apple Black Friday deals will include deals on the iPod Touch, iPod Nano, iPad, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and other items including accessories.
You won’t see any Black Friday iPhone 4S deals online or in your local Apple Stores.
The in store Apple Black Friday deals start at 7 AM on Black Friday, and online deals will likely start earlier, perhaps as early as midnight Pacific time (3AM Eastern) on November 25th.
We expect to see similar Apple Black Friday 2011 deals as last year, which means you can see the following discounts.
- $100 off the MacBook Air
- $100 off the MacBook Pro
- $41 off the iPad 2
- $21 off the iPod Touch
- $11 off the iPod Nano
Most of these won’t come close to the deals on MacBook Airs and MacBook Pros at third-party retailers, where gift cards are often added to give you a better deal. Best Buy has also already chopped $200 off the MacBook Air 13″.
Right now, you can purchase a refurbished iPad 2 for $449, $50 off the retail price, with a full one year warranty. We also have a number of iPod Touch deals which cuts up to $55 off the retail price, many of which we expect to be available online on Black Friday 2011.
Apple may have the most stock of Black Friday iPads, iPods and Macs, but they will also have the biggest crowds and they don’t have the lowest prices.
