Apple in 2018 is planning to hold a four day "shopping" event that will presumably see Apple products available at a discount or with some kind of gift with purchase.

On Apple's website, there is a blank shopping event page that will presumably be populated with deals when Black Friday rolls around, and Apple today sent out teaser emails to customers letting them know about the upcoming sale.


Apple's shopping event will kick off on Friday, November 23 and it will last until Monday, November 26, aka Cyber Monday, another popular day for deals.

Last year, Apple held a similar shopping event that saw the company offering Apple Store gift cards worth up to $150 with the purchase of select devices including Macs, iPhones, iPads, and Apple Watches.

Apple's deals have historically not been quite as good as discounts available from third-party retailers, so if you're shopping for something specific on Black Friday, it's best to take a look at all of the available deals at each retailer before making a decision.

We'll have in-depth Black Friday coverage later this week, and to plan ahead, make sure to check out our Black Friday roundup where we're aggregating all of our Black Friday deals.

I wonder if they'll have a deal on the 2018 MacBook Air, which I just got a few days ago. If so, any chance I could take advantage, with some kind of return/rebuy situation?

Here's what I've seen: "Items purchased at the Apple Online Store that are received between November 14, 2018 and December 25, 2018, may be returned through January 8, 2019." I'm assuming you should be fine, but reach out to their customer service to double check. Worst case return it and buy the same model with the promotional "discount," gift card, or free accessory they end up offering.

Apple is basically known for NOT giving BF deals. This def indicates that they are struggling. Please spare a few $ for Timmy this Christmas season.
Good read imho. This is begging for a few extra bucks to Timmy can tell Wall Street that he is still bringing in dollars even though the Apple money train that Stevie built and Timmy has ridden is derailing.

I remember Apple offering gift cards one day a year around BF, but don't recall it being a multi-day event, or am I mistaken? At least in Canada.
