Apple launches Black Friday promotion in the US, offering up to $150 gift cards

Apple has confirmed plans to take part in Black Friday 2020, offering consumers gift cards when they buy a new iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Mac, HomePod, Apple TV, AirPods, or Beats headphones.

The scheme will run for four days between November 27 and 30.

What’s important to note is that Apple only offers gift cards, meaning you’ll pay the full price for your new device, and then have money to spend on other Apple products or on the iTunes Store.

It’s also worth noting that third-party retailers run more generous promotions.

We should also mention that Apple’s promotion is only eligible on select products, and not the latest iPhone 12 range, Apple Watch Series 6, or Apple Watch SE. For example, if you buy an iPhone SE, XR, or 11, you’ll be able to claim a $50 gift card to spend on Apple products or services, whilst you’ll get $50 for an iPad mini purchase. The iPad Pro 11-inch and iPad Pro 12.9-inch both reward a $100 gift card, whilst the MacBook Pro 16-inch and iMac 21.5-inch offer $150 gift cards. Apple is offering gift cards alongside its new M1 Macs, which were released this month to rave reviews, though you’ll only get a $50 gift voucher.

Apple is giving away a $25 gift card when you buy an Apple Watch Series 3 or AirPods or AirPods Pro, and a $50 voucher when you buy an Apple TV. Buying the original HomePod will reward you with a $100 voucher, a generous offer that should attract new customers.

Apple’s promotion runs from November 27 through November 30, so add it to your calendar and stock up on new Apple products in time for the holiday season. Check back soon for more news and updates on everything Apple, including upcoming sales, on AppleMagazine.
