The Christmas shopping season is underway and it’s a great time to pick up gifts for your family and friends (and hey, treat yourself to something good too!). The Apple AirTag tracking device is a great gift idea – it’s convenient and useful. It’s also reasonably priced, and sells for $ 99 for a pack of 4 AirTags, and a single AirTag is $ 29, but you can shop around and save a few dollars.
Black Friday AirTag offer from Apple
Apple is hosting a holiday shopping event during the Black Friday weekend (starting November 26), with gift cards being offered instead of actual discounts. Apple offers one $ 25 Apple Gift Card with $ 99 AirTag 4 Pack, which is the best deal we’ve seen so far.
If you are a member of the military or a veteran, you can shop at the Apple Military Store, where you can get a 10 percent discount anyone purchase. You must confirm your military status using ID.me.
Black Friday 2021: AirTag offer from Amazon
Deals for the AirTag 4 Pack are likely to show up during Black Friday, but at the moment Amazon is only offering a few dollars off. We have not seen any significant discounts on the individual AirTag unit, which is on sale for $ 29 each.
Black Friday 2021: AirTag accessories
Since the AirTag does not have a keyhole hole, you need to get an accessory to attach it to a backpack or a set of keys. Amazon is selling the AirTag Loop in the color Deep Navy for $ 20, a saving of $ 9 compared to the regular price. In addition, the leather loop in red costs $ 34.50, a saving of $ 4.50.
AirTag purchase advice
Offers are normal for the AirTag 4 package ($ 99), and the individual AirTag ($ 29) is rarely for sale.
As we pointed out in our AirTag review, the AirTag device does not have a keyhole hole, so you may need to purchase an accessory to attach one to a keychain, bag, or other. Apple sells keychains, luggage tags and other AirTag accessories, and you can find AirTag accessories from many third parties on Amazon.
AirTag has a removable CR2032 battery that can be easily replaced by the user. You do not need to replace the battery for a while, but if you notice that the AirTag does not work, try replacing the battery.
If you have an Apple card, use it with Apple Pay. You get 3 percent cash back on purchases made in the Apple Store and 2 percent back on all other purchases made with Apple Pay. If you use the physical Apple Card, you only get 1 percent back.
