Black Friday deals seem to start earlier and earlier every year, so there were already a wide variety of discounts available for Apple products on Thanksgiving Day. Many of the deals remain available even after Thanksgiving, but act fast, as inventory quickly fluctuates.

Thanksgiving Day Deals on Apple Products — Still Available:

Simply Mac still has $150 off M1 MacBook Pros. I'm surprised still available. Is not $150 the biggest discount on these? Simply Mac is a reputable company. Though not very well know for online sales. I already got my Mac mini M1 with the $20 Target Gift card for every $100 Apple Gift card deal so I'm happy.

For Macs or more expensive iPads, and if you shop at Target, I think the best option would be the Target Gift Card deal, especially if you have RedCard and / or Discover card. Deal is even more insane when you have the Education Discount.

Here's how I'm getting a new M1 MacBook Air for ~$720, essentially:

  1. Buy 10 $100 Apple gift cards from Target with Discover card, get $50 cashback and $200 in Target gift cards.
    1. If you have RedCard, you can get a $4 discount per gift card.
    2. Cash value for Target gift cards is $190 (as I have RedCard and shop at Target anyway.
  2. Use gift cards to buy MacBook from Apple for ~$960 with tax -- $40 remainder goes to Apple Music / iCloud Storage, which I would have paid for anyway
  3. $720 == $1000 paid - $50 cashback - $190 Target gc value - $40 to Apple Services

But those don't generate revenue for this website so it won't show.

I heard you can’t redeem more than 8 Apple Gift Cards at once.

Thanks! Added to our list!

Nah, we're happy to promote the best of both worlds. I just wasn't aware of Simply Mac's deal. I've added it.

I would have hoped for better discounts from Apple on Apple products.
I would have hoped for a real discount...not a gift card to be spent at Apple.
Discount on 27 imac. Zero. Not nice.

Apple doesn’t ever do much in the way of discounts.

can you use the $200 target gift cards to purchase more apple cards?
2 $100 cards will get you 2 additional $20

$1000 = $1240 + $50 cashback if you got discover

As usual almost no deal is to be done in my country in Europe. On the m1 chip devices you can completely forget about it. And apple devices are already so expensive here. Stupid from apple. Europe is turning into android and Microsoft world.

I assume it’s their gift card promotion starting today. But there’s absolutely no reason they need to take the whole store down to launch a bonus gift card promo.

This is a good idea, I'd like to do this with an iPad.

So I just bought an M1 MacBook Pro 13” from the Apple Store and picked up same day (Wednesday).

Should I just return and get the one for $150 off from Simply Mac, or will Apple do a price match?

have you gotten your cards yet? It said it would take 4 hours, they canceled 5 of mine and emailed 5 of mine but I still have 9 more that I need emailed and they haven’t given me any of the gift cards from target yet.

Hi,

I'm in the UK and looking to purchase an iPad as a gift for my father-in-law who lives in California.

I am interested in either one of the following and wondering if someone could point me in the right direction of a good deal or a shopping comparison site?

10.2-inch iPad Wi-Fi 128GB - Space Gray
10.9-inch iPad Air Wi-Fi 64GB - Space Gray

Many thanks in advance.
