Keep an Eye on Accessories, But Wait to Buy
Maybe you’re considering purchasing an Apple accessory, like the Magic Keyboard, Apple Pencil, AirPods, or something similar? Yes, deals for these items can also hit online stores! We particularly expect AirPods and the Pencil to see price reductions, along with non-core Apple devices like the HomePod and Apple TV.
However – and this is a big one – IF you’re planning to buy a new Apple computer or iPhone, we highly suggest you wait to purchase an accessory. Black Friday Apple sales for their more expensive items typically include a gift card that you can spend, usually around $200 but sometimes up to $800. This is an ideal opportunity to get a deal that will help you buy whatever accessory you have your eye on. Gift cards typically vary based on the store you are buying from, but Wal-Mart and Target have offered such deals in the past.
If you buy early enough, you can receive the gift card and turn around to take advantage of an accessory discount for Black Friday (if they allow gift card use) and save even more money! Again, deals like this tend to have limited stock, so you have a couple of reasons to make early decisions about it. Be warned that some of these gift card deals may be in-store only, so check the details!
