    I have a $200 Apple store gift card and I’m looking to buy a 3 series Watch. Does the Apple store usually have Black Friday sales and if so when will they publish the deals?

    Thanks in advance.

    Oh yes, sometimes Mr. Cook will offer 50% off everything, for a limited time of course, he is very generous over the holiday season.

    I have read here on MR select products are usually around 10% off on the Apple Store

    Bought an apple keyboard years ago during Black Friday sales but I do not remember how much I saved ...

    Also read here on the forum, target seems to have a nice deal on the Apple Watch series 3 for just 199 (I doubt Apple will match that price tag):

    I just got a S3 for a similar price

    So, you might get better deals at retailers for an S3. In that case you could safe your gift card for something else

    Thanks, but that link just shows general Apple deals, not specifically for the Apple deal. I don’t have the cash to buy one without the GC otherwise I’d get the Target deal.

    So does anyone know specifically if Apple store will offer any BF deals?

    I'd look to the Apple Refurbished site, watches are here. Probably as cheap as you can get it in "like new" condition.

    Apple refurbished products are the best refurbished products sold by anyone, many of us have bought refurbished before. Good as new. Search these forums for additional opinions on Apple Refurbished store.

    I have not seen anything announced. Usually they do offer limited discounts on limited items. They are nowhere near the deals that are seen online or at Best Buy et al. on some products. As was mentioned, perhaps 10% or so. Often times, Apple products are used as "Door Busters" and the deals are pretty good at retailers.
    Currently, the Series 3 (42mm) is selling for $309 (new) or $259 (refurb) at BestBuy is selling new at $259 for Black Friday. Good luck.

    Last year. Apple would offer stuff like a $25 gift card when you buy an Apple Watch, or $100 with a computer...
    you have to shop at best Buy or whatever for the bigger deals...

    They generally don't offer discounts, mostly offer a gift card as a result of purchasing something.
