Apple Posts Black Friday 'One-Day Shopping Event' Teaser




Apple has posted a teaser page on their Australian online Apple Store for a "one-day Apple shopping event" on Friday, November 23rd.
Quote:
The one-day Apple shopping event is Friday, 23 November.

Get ready to give. Shop online or visit your favourite Apple Retail Store.
We'll help you make the most of the day, no matter how you shop.
This Friday represents Black Friday in the United States. Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving that marks the start of the Christmas shopping season. Traditionally, retailers offer major sales on that day.

Apple's international online and retail stores also participate in these sales, though Apple's discounts tend to be very modest. Last year's discounts for Apple's core products were as follows (in USD):

iPad 2 - $41 to $61 Off
iPod nano - $11 off
iPod Touch - $21 to $41 off
MacBook Air - $101 off
MacBook Pro - $101 off
iMac - $101 off

For absolute savings, customers will have better luck with 3rd party merchants that tend to offer steeper discounts on Apple products on Black Friday.

That's why it's called a shopping event and not a sale.

Just get it already cheaper from Amazon. They have it at $100 off a lot.. or try open box at best buy even. $101 off is just so lame for a Black Friday event. Apple is really bad at a real sale because well.. people will buy them anyways

So if I just bought an iPad and am within the 2 week return period will they refund me the difference?

That's what I thought, no good having a discount on something that isn't available.
Lets hope for some news soon

You guys in the states obviously have it good with other sales. 10% off a MBP? Sounds pretty good to me.

If purchased after Oct 27 - you have until Jan 7th-ish (dont quote me here).

So yes to your question. May need to return and repurchase.

It's nice of Apple to offer these sales outside the U.S. too.

Maybe in 6-8 months, the first gen iPad mini 16GB will be reduced to $199 as a 2nd gen iPad mini with an A6 and retina display is introduced. Apple may realize it's better to release a new iPad right before school starts. They may even return to the June iPhone introduction again.
