We always look to see what Black Friday discounts will come with the top Apple products as people line up to get their new devices, and this year Apple stores are taking a few pages out of the books of their competitors.
Walmart and Target have been offering $75 or $100 gift cards with certain Apple product purchases.
As for the Apple stores, they are offering their sales both in stores and online when you pick up a new device. The Apple stores are offering gift cards of up to $150 for the purchase of a Mac, up to $75 for an iPad and up to $50 for an iPod. No gift cards were being offered for iPhones or the new iPad Mini.
Gift cards come out to an estimated 10-15 percent of the price of the product you purchase.
The Apple stores opened around 6 a.m. ET on Black Friday, while the online sales became available around 3 a.m.
Apple’s stores never have the biggest sales, but the gift card offerings are a decent deal. If you want to grab an extra $25 on your gift card, then Target or WalMart may be the place to go, but those places will likely be a lot crazier than the Apple Stores.
