Some Apple retail stores show signs of having special deals on Friday, November 26, the day after the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday and the traditional kickoff of the holiday shopping season.

Last year, Apple offered 10% off on iPods and iPod accessories on the day after Thanksgiving.

[Update] - A graphic at the online Apple Store hints at savings without giving details.

Ca-ching!! Apple is going to be reeling in the iPod profits big-time that day. I think I'll be stopping by the Michigan Avenue store here in Chicago to see what's up.

They're listing the new London Apple Store as taking part in this, so hopefully we'll be getting some discount goodness over the pond too!

I'm not too hyped as I can get the educational discount, which is usually about 10% off the regular price. I believe that Apple is going to do a 10% off all Apple products, instead of just ipods like they did two years ago.

Sounds like this applies to both the online store and retail stores. Since I don't have a retail store in my area I hope this is true.

Last year it included 3rd party iPod accessories. I distinctly remember the inMotion speakers being 10% off for example because I almost bought them that day.

For Apple to have a promotion like this is no big surprise. However, I can't cash in on it as I have no plans to buy any Apple hardware or software (or anything else that would qualify for the discount). I'll have to wait until 2005 or 2006 to take advantage of these offers.

Perfect.

Perfect.

WordPerfect? Is Apple going to buy WordPerfect on Wednesday, take the day off Thursday, and bundle WordPerfect with its iOffice suite on Friday?!?

Seriously, though. Any ideas as to what the "Perfect" repitition might be alluding?

By the looks of it, PERFECT is aiming towards accessories which will also include 3rd party digital cameras(corders), etc...

As in the PERFECT companion for your Mac. :)

so my guess is yes 10% off and if you have EDU pricing it might not apply. :( Though that 20% would really sound neat. :D

Hope this is part of apple reducing the G4 stock over christmas. Looking forward to buying a new G5 powerbook for me and a G5 emac for my mom/dad this spring! Also maybe a price drop on the 23" display?

I'm trying to be happy for everyone that'll benefit from this mysterious discount, but part of me is really pissed that I just got my new 12" powerbook last thursday. *Deep breath*

I should be grateful that I was able to use my educational discount and the Nov 26th special will probably not be on top of that, right?

Oh well, maybe next year.

The little tag might be leading into a few things, but I don't know if it will be limited to that or not. A full store 10% discount would rock, especially if it stacked with EDU, but that is doubtful.

At 20% off I would almost jump to purchase a new one instantly, although I know Moore would come back to kick my butt come Jan when Jobs tell me about the G6 powerbook that has built-in spaceage cooling elements with no need for fans, its only .5" thin and has the new X800 XT card in it - 256 ddr3 :D

So yea, since that probably will not happen, unless the EDU stacks with other deals, I'll let the rest of you get happy off this one, I am waiting until Jan.

You can bet that the AE cards will have the 10% on them. :) Given that Apple has to compete with the wintel world when it comes to wireless as standard. Look at the iBook with AE included, plus AE is becoming old and has gotten cheap. The markup profit margin on it is quite large. Apple and other companies making these cards most likely makes them for 10-20 dollar each (considering licensing and manufacturing along with other labour costs).


Anyhow I feel at current WiFi is over hyped. :rolleyes: Now if they had a cable and dsl modem in one along with a wireless router that is a/b/g compliant that would be something to be excited about. :D

I know BB is having some pretty cool BF deals, including one about an iPod with speaker stand and some other stuff.

Best Buy - 20GB iPod and inMotion Speaker Dock w/ $15 Download Card to iTunes Music Store - $399.99

I have not looked at iPods all that much, so I do not know the value of that inMotion speaker dock, but the whole thing seems to be a pretty neat deal. Can anyone comment on the deal with more experience to the products? Not only price, but is that speaker dock a good one or crappy?

Apple doesnt throw around PERFECT everyday... Sounds like it could be more then just a discount.. Hell imagine introducing a NEW product on that day.. something considered perfect.. along with a discount.. They could move ALOT of units.. especially if they promise delivery before xmas. It wont be an Imac or Powermac.. and would be a consumer product.. I doubt it's a new machine.. Could it be some new software.. or an accessory they deem perfect? Too bad it wont be an flash ipod player.

I say this is really hard ;P I dont have a GODDAMN clue!

Maybe it will just be 10% off after all (lame.. good but lame ;P)

PS.. anyone notice that in EVERY mag latley.. Apple is getting Kudos supream.. for no viruses.. easy to use... and AWSOME customer service. Complaints a plenty though about the cost ;P Even consumer reports recommended them if you didnt mind the software issues! This would be the perfect way to boost EOY (not FY though) profits!
