Black Friday/Cyber Monday?

I'm in the market for a few Apple devices this year, and in years past I've not been keeping an eye on what the did around Black Friday and/or Cyber Monday. Do they typically offer any kind of discounts or specials on these days? If so, what kind of items are marked down? Is it typically iOS/Mac Accessories or has it been their iMac/iPads etc?

I find it hard to believe they'd give even the slightest of discounts on iMac or iPad, but just want to make sure before I go an get something now that I'm not missing out on anything if I wait 3 weeks.

They do Black friday but not cyber monday.
Generally $100 of the macs except the mac mini and $50 off ipad. I doubt they will discount the ipad mini this year. I bet you can find what they did last year with a quick search.

I have not seen very many good deals on Cyber Monday. Usually Black Friday.

It is better to purchase from an authorized Apple seller or someplace online. IMHO

Absolutely no, discounts are on new products only that are currently shipping and even that isn't a certainty.

I am pretty sure that apple lowers their prices to what they are with the student discount. So basically everyone gets the student discount for the day.

Anyone know what time the Black Friday sale starts online? The banner ad on the main UK apple site just says Friday 23rd, no start time? Midnight, 9am?
