Black Friday deals

Sorry to burst your bubble, but if you want a real deal on a computer, you’re better off looking in the PC world.

Black Friday deals are pouring out all over the internet, as well as in brick and mortar stores, but Apple’s Black Friday deals are falling a bit flat. Many consumers were pretty excited that Apple decided to take part in Black Friday this year, hoping to snag a new Apple product at a good price. Now that Black Friday is here, Apple’s Black Friday deals are not as shiny as many wanted, but what did you expect? Here’s a quick rundown of what you’re going to find, in terms of Black Friday deals, over on Apple’s website.

  • iPhone – Get an Apple Gift Card worth up to $50 when you buy select SIM-free iPhone models today. (iPhone SE, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus only)
  • iPad – Get an Apple Gift Card worth up to $100 when you buy select iPad models today. (iPad Pro, iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 4 only)
  • Apple Watch – Get a $25 Apple Gift Card when you buy any Apple Watch Series 1 model today. (Not valid on Apple Watch series 2)
  • Mac – Get a $150 Apple Gift Card when you buy select Mac computers today. (valid on all Macs but NOT on the new MacBook lineup)
  • Apple TV – Get a $25 Apple Gift Card when you buy an Apple TV today.

That’s just about it. You’ll have to purchase your new Apple product at full retail and you’ll get yourself a nice Apple gift card for a future purchase. So yeah, that is a pretty laughable deal and people have taken to Twitter to voice their displeasure.

While I can certainly understand the anger over these “deals” did we really expect anything better from Apple? I mean, I use Apple products and buy them myself but I’ve come to expect that Apple will never give you a deal on anything. Sorry to burst your bubble, but if you want a real deal on a computer, you’re better off looking in the PC world.
