In the U.S., the day after Thanksgiving is called "Black Friday", which is historically one of the busiest shopping days of the year.

Over the past few years, Apple has participated with one-day specials at both their retail Apple stores as well as the online Apple Store.

Apple has posted a teaser at their online store:Come back to the Apple Store the day after Thanksgiving for a special one-day-only holiday shopping event. You'll find dozens of great gift ideas all with free shipping.

Mark your calendars now. And until then, start your research by visiting our Holiday Gift Guide to find Mac and iPod gifts for everyone on your list.
Last year, Apple offered discounts on select Macs and accessories.

Nothing will be happening with the Canadian Apple Store, so I'm not too interested in this sale. Now if only Apple had a similar offer for Canadian Thanksgiving...

I hope they remember to add my state's (South Carolina) "no tax on anything" holiday.

South Carolina is having a 2nd "no tax weekend" that runs Friday and Saturday.

Even though it was not the day after Thanksgiving, I thought the Apple Canada store did offer discounts last year on Black Friday.

Edit: Just checked the Apple Canada Store, they are planning to have discounts this Friday.

You think shopping that day is bad, I have to work that day. 9 hour split shift (opening and closing).

So anyways, when do the Apple Store's sales go up online? Midnight? 6AM like the retailers?

Do they have any giveaways in brick and mortar stores?

I've been waiting to spend my $50 credit from the iPod battery settlement for this! :D
