Apple’s holiday deadlines for delivery…

A Christmas Deal-ivery…

If anyone is going to capitalize on the lucrative pre-Christmas market, it will be Apple. And this year, the trendy techno giant is desperately trying not only spread the word about their order deadlines, but are also working hard to ensure generous deadlines which guarantee delivery by Christmas.

Merry Christmas 2 you…

This year, Apple are trying their best to ensure that even all the last-minute-Larrys of the world can treat their loved ones to a fancy gadget and have it wrapped up and hidden under the Christmas tree in time for the big day. Any order placed Monday-Friday before 5pm ET will be shipped to you free of charge within two business days. Of course, when taking weekends into account, that means you’ll have to place your order by 20th December to receive it by Christmas Eve, but this should still be plenty of time.

All iWant for Christmas…

It’ll probably come as no surprise that the above dates do not apply to the coveted iPhone; the holy grail of all Apple offerings at the moment. From technophobic grandmothers to their excited grandchildren, it really does seem that we are living in an iWorld at the minute. Apple are well aware of this, which is why they are offering an even later deadline on their iPhone orders. Place your order on the 21st of December for an iPhone and you’ll still receive it on the 24th December, thanks to their free next business day shipping service.

Dollar deals…

Don’t worry if you miss the holiday freebies. You can still get your goods in time for the big day, by adding Express Delivery to your order. These shipping rates start at $8 and can guarantee delivery in one working day. In some locations, you could even take advantage of Apple’s two-hour courier service for an unseasonably meagre $9. Apart from getting the big man Santa himself to deliver it to your house, could you do any better at such short notice? We think not.

Okay, so Apple are not miracle workers, which is why personalised items and custom built products are not eligible for these deals, but with the guys at Apple working harder than Santa’s Elves, we don’t think anyone can really ask for more.
