Here Are Apple’s Underwhelming Black Friday ‘Deals’, All Gift Cards On Old Products Only

Apple has always been known for not being the best place to shop on Black Friday. The company typically lets its third-party retailers give the discounts.

To the point where in 2015 Apple did not participate in Black Friday at all. This year, however, the iPhone maker returns with no discounts, but with Apple Store gift cards on older products.

This year Apple is offering free Apple Store gift cards worth up to $150 or CA$200 in the United States and Canada, respectively and is available in both retail stores and online. Each customer is limited to two gift cards per product category. Refurbished products and purchases made through Apple’s educational stores do not qualify.

Here is the list for the U.S.:

  • Macs: $150 (iMac, Mac Pro, MacBook, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro, excludes late 2016 models)
  • iPad Pro: $100
  • iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 4: $50
  • iPhone 6s and 6s Plus: $50
  • iPhone SE: $25
  • Apple Watch Series 1: $25
  • Apple TV: $25

Like nearly every other year, if you’re looking for discounts on Apple products, look elsewhere unless you really want an Apple Store gift card.
