Black Friday offer from Apple
Apple does not offer discounted prices for any of its products. The company has a shopping event starting today where it gives you Apple gift cards with specific products. In this case, you can get one $ 100 gift card if you buy a MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, Mac mini. If you buy one 27-inch iMac, you get a $ 200 gift card.
If you prefer a price discount instead of a gift card and you prefer to shop at Apple, consider going to the Apple Refurbished and Clearance store. You can save some money on the regular price and refurbished Macs that are as good as new with no cosmetic stains, a full year warranty and free shipping and returns.
If you’re a veteran or a current member of the military, Apple has a special purchase program where you can get ten percent off all Apple products. Confirmation of your veteran or active military status is required using ID.me.
Black Friday 2021: Mac mini-deals
Apple’s most affordable desktop Mac is often for sale. Costco is currently selling the 256GB models for $ 600 ($ 100 off). 512 GB is also $ 149 off Amazon.
Black Friday 2021: 24-inch iMac offer
Apple’s redesigned all-in-one was released in April, but we have not yet seen any significant discounts on it. You can usually find it at $ 50 off.
Black Friday 2021: 27-inch iMac offer
We do not recommend the 27-inch iMac because it will soon be updated with a redesign and Apple silicon. But if you need a model with an Intel processor, you can save $ 100 at Amazon.
Many resellers have Mac configurations that are different from the standard configurations. They may have more RAM a larger SSD, ethernet or another optional feature. This will affect the price. When shopping, you may need to read the specifications carefully so that you get a Mac with the specifications you want.
Some retailers may be selling older Intel-based Macs at great discounts. Know that these Macs are older models, and although they can be sold as “new”, they are only new in the sense that they have never been opened.
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.
