Apple has officially announced its annual four-day Black Friday shopping event, which runs from Black Friday through Cyber Monday in the United States. Customers can receive up to a $200 Apple Store gift card with the purchase of select products.
Apple’s four-day shopping event runs November 29 through December 2 on Apple.com, by phone at 1-800-APPLE, and at Apple Stores. The offer will also be available in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Poland, the Netherlands, Sweden, and other countries, gift card amounts will vary.
The Cupertino firm hasn’t yet revealed the full offer terms, such as which product will score which gift card amount. During last year’s Black Friday event, customers could score a $200 gift card for most Macs, while buyers of previous-generation iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch models snagged a $50 gift card. HomePod and Beats purchases were eligible for a $50 gift card, while Apple TV buyers rated a $25 gift card.
Last year’s promotion excluded the most recent models of the iPhone, iPad Pro, and Apple Watch, as well as refurbished products, those purchased using an educational discount, and iPhones purchased using the iPhone Upgrade Program. MacBook Air and Mac mini purchases did not qualify last year, nor did purchases of AirPods or special edition Beats headphones.
