The long-awaited news which we’ve all been expecting from Apple is now here. Apple’s yearly Black Friday’s practice of offering gift cards of up to $200 is now actualized.
The company has just announced its Black Friday deal for the year 2021. The event, as usual, will last for 4 days starting from Black Friday to Cyber Monday. In 2021, the event will commence on the 26th of November and end on the 29th of November.
Two weeks back, Apple had its Holiday Gift Guide, usually held annually. This holiday gift guide was held intending to help people get the best out of tons of products available at Apple. This, indirectly, is incorporated to prepare people for the apple’s black.
Apple’s Black Friday deals are gift cards, basically. And these gift cards apply to only selected products. It’s important to note that new Apple products like the iPhone 13 series, Apple watch series 7, and others are not applicable for gift cards. After all, Apple doesn’t need to slash prices on products that are already selling like hotcakes.
In all, this event will create an opportunity to get Apple products at a discounted amount, up to $200. An important caveat here is that Apple isn’t going to give you $200 worth of gift cards on every purchase. Rather, the gift will vary prices from $50 up to $200. The worth of Apple’s gift card will vary, depending on the type and amount of products you purchased.
While Apple’s $200 gift card deal may be appealing to some, others may prefer to get a black Friday discount on other third-party sellers. And they do this under certain observations.
For instance, Apple sells Apple Watch SE for $279 while Amazon sells the same products for $210. Even if Apple would offer a gift card worth $50 for these products, it makes no sense.
What Products Are Eligible For Apple’s 2021 Gift Card?
Apple’s Black Friday deal doesn’t apply to all products available at Apple stores. Only a few selected products are eligible.
If you purchase Apple’s iPad Pro 11” and iPad Pro 12.9 from the Apple store you will get a $100 Apple Gift Card. This also applies to MacBook Air, MacBook Pro 13”, Mac mini, and iMac 27”
Apple’s 2nd and 3rd generation AirPods, AirPods Pro, and AirPods Max will all be eligible for a $75 Apple Gift Card. On the other hand, Apple Watch SE and Apple Watch Series 3, are bundles with a $50 Apple Gift Card.
On purchasing either iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, and iPhone SE, you’ll be leaving with a $50 worth of Apple’s Gift Card. In addition, you’ll get a $50 Apple Gift Card when you get to buy the popular Apple TV 4K or Apple TV HD.
