You won’t find the best Apple Black Friday deals in your local Apple Store for most of the gadgets bearing an Apple logo. Instead you’ll need to look at Best Buy, Walmart, Target and even eBay to find a big Apple Black Friday 2014 deal.
We finally know what the Apple Black Friday 2014 ad looks like, and there are some deals you cannot find anywhere else like iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus deals on higher storage models and discounts on the customizable MacBook Pro and MacBook Air notebooks and even the new iMac Retina with a 5K display.
For some shoppers the ease of shopping online from Apple outweighs the need to stand in line or get online at the right time to get one of the absolute best Apple Black Friday deals for 2014. In most cases, you’re looking at long lines and there is only one deal that guarantees the iPad mini for one hour on Thanksgiving Day.
In some cases, the best Apple Black Friday deals are in the form of refurbished notebooks and tablets that Apple discounts below Black Friday pricing any day of the week. These include the latest models and often the same one year warranty as a new Apple gadget.
Apple Stores are closed Thanksgiving, but many of the best Apple Black Friday deals are on Thanksgiving Day at 5 PM and 6 PM depending on the store. Best Buy opens at 5PM with some deals online, while Target and Walmart start Black Friday deals at 6PM and offer some online. We may see some surprise deals on Amazon, but overall Best Buy offers the widest range of Apple Black Friday deals and beats most of the deals we’ll see in the Apple Black Friday 2014 ad.
Below you’ll find the best Apple Black Friday deals for Black Friday 2014. We’ll outline the biggest deal you can find, and show you where to see the rest of the deals. The biggest discount isn’t always the best deal for every shopper, because it means lines and possibly a trip to a store that is out-of-the-way.
The biggest Apple Black Friday deals are also often on the low-end models, so some users may find a smaller discount on a product with more storage and other options an overall better deal.
Many of the best Apple Black Friday deals will sell out quick, so plan ahead and know where you need to line up or where you plan to shop online before Black Friday 2014 arrives and you are left looking for the best deal at the last-minute.
Many of the Apple Store Black Friday deals are not the cheapest, but it is unlikely that they will sell out as fast as the other deals. We typically don’t see sales at Apple Stores and some of these Black Friday 2014 deals will not see a repeat before Christmas, so plan for the shopping event.
