Apple's "Lucky Bag" Event Coming to Japan on January 2
As Christmas passes and we move into Boxing Day worldwide, Apple confirmed its annual “Lucky Bag” sale for January 2 in Japan. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the sale, it takes place in seven stores across the country, allowing shoppers who get in line early to purchase a 33,000 yen ($390) gift bag that includes the possibility of headphones, an iPod Touch, cases, an Apple T-Shirt, among other accessories. The real reason many consumers purchase the gift bags is because some of them are loaded with special items like a MacBook Air or iPad, which only a few lucky people will end up receiving.
Lucky Bags are a big tradition in Japan and other parts of Asia. Apple’s Lucky Bag event is equivalent to Black Friday in the United States in many ways as it attracts overnight campers to stores. Unfortunately such an event isn’t held in the United States. If it was, how many of you would be interested in purchasing a Lucky Bag?
