Apple 'Black Friday' 2017: Early iPad, iPhone, MacBook Deals

2017-11-13 795 Posted by 3uTools

Black Friday 2017 already has some incredible Microsoft and Samsung offers, and now deals on Apple AAPL -0.67%’s iPhones, iPads, MacBooks and Watch are starting. You can find my individual Black Friday store guides here (AmazonBest BuyKohl’sTargetWalmart), but here I am looking at specifically how good their Apple offers are and how you secure the best deals.  


Apple 'Black Friday' 2017: Early iPad, iPhone, MacBook Deals


Apple Black Friday 2017 Tips:


Traditionally the Apple Store itself doesn’t offer substantial Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals. In recent years the company has offered only small gift cards when spending over a certain amount (or even no deals at all) and I expect this to continue in 2017. For that reason, I recommend you focus your Apple Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2017 shopping at third party retailers.


Specifically make sure you check out Walmart, Best Buy, Target, Kohl’s and Sam’s Club for the Best Apple Black Friday 2017 Deals. For example, when I covered the Kohl’s 2017 Black Friday leak it revealed shoppers will receive $90 in Kohl’s Cash for the Apple Watch Series 3 and $75 in Kohl’s Cash for the Apple Watch Series 1. The Watch prices were not different to the Apple Store but Kohl’s Cash is free money if you are already planning on shopping there. Also keep an eye on deals at B&H Photo Video, MacMall and Newegg.


Make sure any Apple item you buy over the Black Friday and Cyber Monday period comes with free shipping. Amazon offers free shipping for Prime members (trial link), Walmart offers free 2-day shipping if you spend $35 or more and both Best Buy and Target offer free shipping on everything. But watch out for smaller merchant shipping costs, especially as some offer Apple products at slightly reduced prices to get a sales but this doesn’t account for shipping. Whether you are buying an Apple TV or a MacBook, make sure your shipping is free.


All prices are correct at the time of publication:

> Kohl’s - Apple Watch Series 2 (42mm Gold Tone Aluminum with Midnight Blue Sport Band) for $299 (save $100) 


> Walmart - Straight Talk Apple 6 32GB Prepaid Smartphone for $199 (save $200)


> Kohl’s Black Friday Deal Beginning November 20 - Apple Watch Series 3 + $90 Kohl's Cash for $329 (no direct discount) 


> Target Black Friday Deal Beginning November 23 - Apple iPad Pro 10.5-inch (Wi-Fi) for $529.99 (save $120) 


> Target Black Friday Deal Beginning November 23 - Free $250 Gift Card With Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus With Activation


If there is to be one disappointing during Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2017 it is that you are unlikely to find discounts on Apple’s new iPhone X. Despite being the most expensive iPhone ever made, demand is so high and stocks are so low it is almost impossible to buy one. Pre-orders are likely to be the best you’ll find.


Despite this iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus Black Friday deals should be more plentiful as will iPad, Apple Watch and MacBook savings.
