If you are looking for iPod touch Black Friday 2013 deals there are plenty to be found, but unfortunately most of them will require you to give up part of your Thanksgiving and deal with in store crowds and no promise that one will be in stock when you get to the front of the line.
Still, if you want to save $50 or so on an iPod touch or iPod nano this holiday season, you can do that at almost any store that sells the iPod during Black Friday.
This year the Black Friday sales start on Thanksgiving, with the earliest sales starting at 6 AM on Thanksgiving. That means getting up very early if you plan to wait in line, but at least with a 6 AM start you can get home in time to carve the Turkey. Best Buy and Walmart Black Friday 2013 deals start later in the day, around 6 PM, with lines forming hours before, so Thanksgiving dinner will be rushed.
While the iPhone is gaining in popularity thanks to cheaper options and shared date plans, the iPod touch is still a go to gift for kids, parents and users who want the benefits of a smartphone without a monthly bill.

Some retailers are offering the iPod touch 4th gen as a Black Friday deal, but it is one you should avoid as it is much older and doesn’t run iOS 7.

iPod nano Black Friday 2013 Deals
The iPod nano remains a popular Black Friday deal, with as much as $50 off in the form of gift cards or bonuses. The iPod nano is a nice device, but it cannot run apps like the iPod touch so you will not be able to use Pandora or Spotify for music and you cannot play games on it. Theses deals are for the iPod nano 7th generation, which is the most current model.
- iPod nano 16GB at Meijer – $145 + $50 gift card
- iPod nano 16GB at Best Buy – $99
- iPod nano 16GB at Fred Meyer – $129
- iPod nano 16GB at H.h. gregg – $129
Look for the Apple Store to offer about $11 off the iPod nano online and in stores. In short, you are better off going for the iPod nano at these stores, if you can brave the crowds.
