Apple Store Cyber Monday Sale for 2018

2018:

We’re sad to report that the Apple Store had not offered any discounts for Cyber Monday in the past and will not be doing so here in 2018 either. Apple only offers a short one-day Black Friday sale once a year, their only one during the holiday season.

With that being said, it doesn’t mean that you can’t save up to $150.00 (or even more!) on your next Apple product, even on a new iPhone XS you’re dreaming about. It just won’t be at your local Apple Store or apple.com. We recommend that you check out the Cyber Monday deals at some of Apple’s official resellers like Best Buy or MacMall as they will definitely have lower prices than at the Apple Store on many Mac related things.

What new Mac, iPhone, iPad or Watch are you planning on picking up this Cyber Monday?  Let us know in the comments below.

Apple Watch Black Friday 2018 Sale & Deals

2018:

We still have some time until Black Friday 2018 arrives. However, you can scroll down the page to check out what was offered last year to get an idea of what’s likely to come (just don’t expect to new Series 4 to be discounted at all, but we’ll likely see some “cash back” sort of deals return like Kohl’s Cash). Be sure to visit us again here at Blacker Friday in early November for the latest BF ads, news, rumors, and updates coming from Apple (or just signup to our newsletter and we’ll do the work for you). Cheers!


2017:

Updated on Thursday, November 23, 2017: Although not as much wished for as Apple’s new iPhone X, Apple Watch is shaping up to once again be one of this year’s most sought after gifts. And we’re here tracking all of this year’s top Black Friday deals!

Here are all the Apple Watch Black Friday 2017 sales that we’ve been able to confirm:

— Kohl’s: For 2017, Kohl’s Black Friday ad is featuring the 38mm gold with aluminum case Apple Watch Series 3 for $329 and the 38mm space-grey with aluminum case Series 1 for $249. Although these are their everyday prices, during their Black Friday sale you’ll be able to earn either $90 in Kohl’s Cash on the Series 3 or $75 Kohl’s Cash on the Series 1. Use Kohl’s Cash in-stores or online towards your other Kohl’s purchases this Thanksgiving weekend. The sale starts on Monday, November 20 on their site. Select stores will also have Apple Watches on sale starting 5:00PM on Thursday, Thanksgiving day (that’s on November 23, 2017).

— Target: Target’s Black Friday 2017 ad has two Apple watches featured this year. The first is the Apple Watch Series 1 that’s on sale from $179.99 (that’s a savings of $70.00). The second is the Apple Watch Series 3 that’s on sale from $329.99. Sale prices valid from November 23rd–25th, 2017, or while supplies last. Free shipping for all online orders is available. Stores open from 6:00PM to Midnight on Thursday, Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 23, 2017). Then they re-open at 6:00AM on Black Friday morning (Nov. 24, 2017).

— Best Buy: Best Buy is advertising the Apple Watch Series 1 in their Black Friday ad for as low as $199 with free shipping included. That’s $50.00 off the retail price. The sale begins on Thursday, Thanksgiving day on their website and in stores later that afternoon when doors open at 5:00PM (that’s on November 23, 2017).

— Macy’s: Macy’s will be offering the Apple Watch Series 1 for $70.00 off during their Black Friday sale. That means you’ll be able to pick one up for $179—$229 depending on the one you choose. Offer valid Nov 22—25, 2017.

— Meijer: Rather than discounting the Apple Watch this year, Meijer’s Black Friday flyer is advertising $100 off your next shopping trip if you buy the Series 1 or Series 2 priced at $249 or more. Series 3 is excluded as are any clearance Apply Watches. Limit 2 per customer. Sale begins at 6:00AM on Thursday, Thanksgiving day (that’s on November 23, 2017) and will be available while supplies last.

— Navy Exchange: Navy Exchange is offering their “lowest price ever” on the Apple Watch 38mm Series 1 model this Black Friday. It’ll be on sale for just $134 (that’s $110 off their regular price). Or pick up the larger 42mm Series 1 for $164. Offer valid Thursday, Thanksgiving day through Saturday (Nov. 23—25, 2017) or while supplies last. Stores closed on Thanksgiving day but will be open on Black Friday from 5:00AM. Just keep in mind that similar to AAFES, only active-duty military, reserve, and National Guard employees will be able to shop at NEX.

2018:

We’re still waiting for official details from Apple on what they will be offering this Black Friday (and unfortunately, we won’t know until the sale goes live early Friday morning, after Thanksgiving).

However, it’s likely you’ll see the same free store gift card with purchase as we saw these last few years. That means no discounts, but you can use your earned credit for iTunes or any Apply accessories. They usually run the deal on Macs, MacBooks, and select iPhones and watches. Just don’t expect iPhone X to be included int he deal as they sully excluded the newest phones from the offer.

As soon as the news is released we will post an update here on Blacker Friday. Until then, be sure to sign up to our newsletter to stay in the loop on this year’s best deals over Thanksgiving weekend.

Updated November 22, 2016: For all of you hoping to pick up your Apple gear at discount at apple.com this Thanksgiving weekend, then you might actually have your chance this year on Black Friday! If you recall, last year they didn’t have a Black Friday sale.

Similar to what we’ve seen in the past, select items purchased at an Apple retail store or Apple.com on Black Friday will qualify for a free Apple Store gift card. Unfortunately only older products are included in the event so if you’re looking to get a good deal on the new MacBook Pro or an iPhone 7, then you’re out of luck.

Here are the products included in this year’s sale:

– Mac: $150 gift card (excludes MacBook Pro late 2016 models).

– iPad Pro: $100 gift card.

– Apple Watch Series 1: $25 gift card.

– Apple TV: $25 gift card.
