Apple is promising to have big sales and special deals this year on the day after thanksgiving. Their on-site promo reads:
“Come back to the Apple Online Store the day after Thanksgiving for a special one-day-only holiday shopping event. You’ll find dozens of great iPod, iPhone, and Mac gift ideas.
Mark your calendars. And start your research now by browsing the Apple Online Store to find iPod, iPhone, and Mac gifts for everyone on your list.”
Items listed above can make great and special gifts for your loved ones (or for yourself) around the holidays and ‘Black Friday’ can be a good time to pick these up. Analyst Ben Reitzes of Barclay Capital states at iPodNN that the discounts “should include not just $100 discounts on Macs, but additional discounts on iPods, and possibly some for iPhones. As support for the last proposition, Reitzes cites hints that France’s Orange will slash the 8GB iPhone down from €149 to €99 for the holidays, something which could be matched by America’s AT&T if Apple cooperates.”
So whether the ‘special day’ includes apple products or just apple accessories will be a mystery until the actual day, as with any ‘Apple’ event. But my interest is piqued and I am looking forward to seeing what might be offered.
Ideas or hopes on what might be included in the ‘Biggest Shopping Day Of The Year’? Post a comment below.
