We are closer than ever to Black Friday 2021, with many sales already in full swing and just as many ready to kick off tomorrow and on Friday. In this article, we provide a quick overview of all the best sales we’ve seen so far this season, and the highlights to keep an eye on on Friday. For more on the best sales happening this week, visit our Black Friday Roundup.

A note on availability

More than in previous years, in 2021 we have had larger and steeper sales up to Black Friday, making it easier to complete your purchases before the holidays even begin. Because we’re still a few days out from Black Friday, and because many solid sales began days ago, be sure to shop now if you see something you want. The availability of particularly good deals can – and will – decline rapidly, as we saw at Walmart’s $ 90 discount on the Apple Watch Series 3.

Where to shop

Over the last few weeks, we have been focusing on the best deals to come Walmart, Goal, and Best buy. If you like shopping at some retailer, we recommend that you review our spotlight post this week to see what’s available now and what’s still waiting.

In addition, Apple this week described its annual Black Friday sales event, and as usual, it offers Apple gift cards along with the purchase of Apple products at a fixed price on Apple.com.

While there may be cases where this is beneficial to some people, the best deals and great deals on Apple products overall will not be available on Apple.com during the week of Black Friday, but on Amazon, Target, Walmart, Best Buy , B&H Photo and other similar resellers. For this reason, you will see the focus on these third-party resellers in this article.

AirPods Pro

  • What’s wrong? AirPods Pro with MagSafe for $ 159.00
  • Where can I get it? Amazon and Walmart
  • When can I get it? Right now

Amazon’s $ 90 price reduction on the new AirPods Pro with the MagSafe Charging Case remains one of the highlights of Black Friday 2021. It’s available for $ 159.00, down from $ 249.00, and inventory has been fluctuating since yesterday . Otherwise, Walmart also has this sale.

(Note that Amazon may not be showing availability at this time, but the $ 159 price may still be available by clicking “View All Purchases”).

AirPods 3

  • Where can I get it? Amazon
  • When can I get it? Right now

You can get the latest model of AirPods, AirPods 3, for $ 154.99 on Amazon this week, down from $ 179.00. This is a record low price, and although availability has been good so far this week, we do not know how well the stock will continue to hold up.

AirPods 2

  • What’s wrong? AirPods 2 from $ 109.00
  • Where can I get it? Amazon
  • When can I get it? Right now

Although they are now an older model, big savings can be found on Apple’s AirPods 2 this Black Friday. Amazon currently has the model with a wired charging case for $ 109.00, down from $ 159.00; and the model with a wireless charging case for $ 149.99, down from $ 199.00.

AirPods Max

  • What’s wrong? AirPods Max in select colors for $ 429.00
  • Where can I get it? Amazon
  • When can I get it? Right now

Amazon currently has Apple’s AirPods Max for sale for $ 429.00, down from $ 549.00. This is equivalent to the lowest price we have ever tracked on the AirPods Max, but so far it is only available in Sky Blue on Amazon.

iPhone

iPhone blue holiday 2

  • What’s wrong? iPhone 12 and 13 deals everywhere
  • Where can I get it? AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Target, more
  • When can I get it? Most deals are available now

Deals on iPhones are always plentiful around holidays, and 2021 is no different. A standout this year can be found at T-Mobile, which offers a free iPhone 13 Pro, free AirPods 2 and free years with Apple TV + when shopping with a qualified device and placing the iPhone 13 Pro on a Magenta MAX monthly plan.

Otherwise, you will find the usual installment offers from other providers. AT&T started offering its Black Friday sale last week, and with them you can get an iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 or iPhone 13 mini at no cost with a swap and installment plan. You can also get $ 1,000 off the iPhone 13 Pro Max with the same requirements.

At Verizon, you can get up to $ 1,000 when you trade in your old smartphone and buy an iPhone 13 model. There are also some solid iPhone 12 offers, such as a BOGO free offer and a free iPhone 12 mini with any unlimited subscription.

  • Goal – Get up to $ 250 off iPhone 12 and 13 when you add a new line; get up to $ 140 Target gift card with in-store activation of an iPhone SE
  • Walmart – Get up to $ 750 in eGift cards with activation and purchase of iPhone 12 and iPhone 13
  • Best Buy – Save up to $ 1,000 on iPhone 13 when shopping and activating on Verizon, AT&T or T-Mobile

Apple Watch

apple watch blue holiday

  • What’s wrong? $ 60 off Apple Watch SE; $ 19 off series 7
  • Where can I get it? Target, Amazon and Best Buy
  • When can I get it? Right now

For the older Apple Watch models – Series 3 and SE – now is a good time to buy smartwatches. Target offers the 40mm GPS Apple Watch SE for $ 219.99, down from $ 279.00. The 44 mm GPS model is on sale for $ 249.99, down from $ 309.00.

These deals are both all-time low prices on the Apple Watch SE, and you can find similar sales at Best Buy and on Amazon this Black Friday. Target customers should remember that you can get an additional 5 percent off your order with Target RedCard.

On Monday, Walmart had a $ 90 discount on the Apple Watch Series 3, available for only $ 109, but given how steep the sale was, it didn’t last very long. It may be worth keeping an eye on Walmart through this week, and on Friday, as the company can rebuild the Series 3 models at these all-time low prices.

You can also currently find all-time low prices on the Apple Watch Series 7, but the discounts are not very deep. The best sale you will find today is $ 19 off the Series 7 models on Amazon. This is for select models only, and some discounts only reach up to $ 9 off. Still, if you want to own the latest Apple Watch model, you can at least save a little bit of money on Amazon.

MacBook Pro

Macbook pro blue holiday 2

  • What’s wrong? Lowest price on the new 14-inch MacBook Pro
  • Where can I get it? Amazon
  • When can I get it? Right now

Amazon has the 8-Core M1 Pro / 512GB 14-inch MacBook Pro for $ 1,949.99, down from $ 1,999.00. Although there is only a $ 50 discount, this equates to the lowest price we have tracked to date on this model of the new MacBook Pro, so anyone still shopping for this model should take a look at this model soon. Unfortunately, this model currently has a shipping estimate in early January, so it does not arrive in time for the holidays when shipped from Amazon. Only Amazon has this sale at the time of writing.

If you want a little more storage space, the 10-Core M1 Pro / 1TB 14-inch MacBook Pro is on sale for $ 2,449.99, down from $ 2,499.00. This model is still coming before the holidays.

iMac

imac blue holiday

  • What’s wrong? Record low prices on the 2021 iMac
  • Where can I get it? Amazon
  • When can I get it? Right now

Amazon has Apple’s M1 24-inch iMac for $ 50 off in several configurations, starting at $ 1,249.00 for the M1 iMac with 7-Core GPU / 256GB, down from $ 1,299.00. In addition, Amazon this week unveiled the M1 iMac with 8-Core GPU / 512GB for the first time ever, available for $ 1,649.99, down from $ 1,699.00.

Amazon sales always come and go fast, and we have not had a clear picture of what kind of iMac offer we can expect on Friday, so if you have been waiting for a sale, it’s solid all-time low prices on the latest iMac.

iPad Pro

ipad pro blue holiday 2

  • What’s wrong? Tons of iPad Pro deals start at $ 999.00 for 12.9-inch models
  • Where can I get it? Amazon
  • When can I get it? Right now

Amazon has a massive sale on 12.9-inch iPad Pro models, offering savings on all models and the lowest prices ever on almost every single one. Prices start at $ 999.00 for the 128GB Wi-Fi tablet and jump to $ 2,249.00 for the 2TB Cellular device. At this point in the week, we’re not tracking any notable 11-inch iPad Pro deals, but there should be at least a few that seem closer to Black Friday.

  • 128 GB Wi-Fi – $ 999.00 at Amazon ($ 100 off, lowest ever)
  • 256 GB Wi-Fi – $ 1,099.00 at Amazon ($ 100 off)
  • 512 GB Wi-Fi – $ 1,249.00 at Amazon ($ 150 discount, lowest ever)

Apple gift card

  • What’s wrong? $ 15 in store credit when purchasing $ 100 Apple gift cards
  • Where can I get it? Goals and Best Buy
  • When can I get it? Right now

Depending on which retailer you prefer, you can get a $ 15 gift card from Target and Best Buy when you purchase the $ 100 Apple gift card. These are the best deals you will find this season on the new Apple gift card, as we do not see direct cash discounts on these gift cards. If you were already planning to buy an Apple gift card, the $ 15 store credit could also help lower the price of an Apple Watch SE or a pair of AirPods to an even steeper, ever low price.

HomePod mini

  • What’s wrong? HomePod mini for $ 94.99
  • Where can I get it? B&H photo
  • When can I get it? Right now

We are not seeing many particularly steep discounts on the HomePod mini this week, so if you had an eye for one and would like to save some money, B&H Photo is the best bet. This retailer has the speaker for $ 94.99, down from $ 99.99

Apple Pencil 2

  • What’s wrong? Apple Pencil 2 for $ 99.00
  • Where can I get it? Amazon
  • When can I get it? Right now

Amazon has the Apple Pencil 2 at $ 99.00 this week, down from $ 129.00. This is an always low Amazon price and one of the most consistent discounts we track on Apple Pencil 2.

MagSafe

Shoppers should note that shares of the Beats studio Buds have fluctuated today on Amazon. Make sure you buy a new pair and not a used version from a third-party Amazon retailer.
