More Black Friday Deals On Tap from Apple?
Last week rumors began to surface about what Apple would do to slash prices on its products for Black Friday, the ultimate day of sales following Thursday's Thanksgiving holiday. While initially it seemed that Apple would merely be discounting products on a percentage basis, new information is emerging that suggests a different plan may be in store for prospective Apple customers this Friday.
According to TFTS, here's what you might be able to expect.
- iMacs: $1,098 to $1,898
- MacBook Pro: $1,098 to $2,448
- iPod nano: $138 to $168
- iPod touch: $178 to $358
- Apple TV: $208
- Airport Express: $88
- Apple Magic Mouse: $64
- Apple Wireless Keyboard: $64
- Western Digital Hard Drives: starting at $8
- Sennheiser MM 400 Bluetooth Stereo Headset: $188
- iHome iP88 Dual Dock Clock Radio Speaker: $108
- mophie Juice Pack Air for iPhone: $58
- Griffin Power Reserve Chargers: $28 to $44
- Power Support AirJacket for iPhone: $24 to $28
- Microsoft Office Mac 2008 Home and Student Edition: $98
- JBL Creature III Desktop Speakers: $74
- Monster Beats by Dr. Dre: $128
- Apple In-Ear Headphones with Remote and Mic: $74
- Nike + iPod: $14 to $24
- Belkin TuneCast Auto: $48
- Plantronics Discovery 975 Bluetooth Headset: $98
Of course, if these prices prove to be accurate, it is likely that they will only be applicable to online shoppers willing and able to make their purchases this Friday - and this Friday only. As evidenced by Apple's advertisements hyping Black Friday, it appears a huge emphasis - much greater than normal - will be placed on online shopping.
The offers presented above are pretty much all that we can expect from Apple this week. Apple hasnít confirmed the deals but its online store already shows a banner acknowledging the fact that this Friday special discounts are going to be offered for all the products available in the store.
Nonetheless, the potential for major discounts is apparent this year. And in this tentative economy, that's something many holiday shoppers can give thanks for this season.

These are all rumors first off. Second, if you are ever experienced an Apple black friday sale, you would know that the discounts are just usually about 11%...

Apple's Black Friday sales are always weak
11-24-2009, 09:18 AM #11
God! Things are still expensive as hell! So not worth it...
Hit "Thanks" if I helped
11-24-2009, 09:31 AM #12
Hey, if those prices are accurate then one should be grateful to get things a little cheaper if you can stretch your dollar!

Damn. All my Apple product is up to date. But I will check it out anyway.

Apple will chew on everyone's money. Maybe the reason why those discounts are very weak.Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!
