Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is gearing up for a rare event: a sale. The company just posted a teaser for their upcoming Black Friday Sale on their Apple Store website which starts at midnight Pacific Standard Time on November 23rd. Unfortunately, we don’t have a list of special deals from the company, although we can probably expect a few small discounts, most of which will probably be accessories. iPhone users can also download an app that lets them know what will be on sale on Black Friday and give you the option to buy. The sale will last for one day both in-store and online.
It should be noted that some of the better Apple deals won’t come from Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) itself. Several big box retailers are offering a free gift card worth a selected amount with select product purchases. One example of this includes a $75 Walmart gift card with the purchase of a $399 iPad 2 at Walmart.
As I mentioned before, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is gearing up for a huge holiday season and I believe this upcoming sale is just a way to kick it all off. This year’s biggest items include the iPad Mini, iPad with Retina Display, and iPhone 5. Although I highly doubt any of the aforementioned products will be on sale during the Black Friday event, I’m sure that they will sell a variety of accessories and extras that were made specifically for these items.
If you can’t wait to see the official Black Friday ad just yet, you can take a view at their 2012 holiday gift guide instead which features a variety of products you may find on sale in just a couple of days. Notable gift ideas include the iPad Mini Smart Cover ($39.00), a magnetic polyurethane cover which protects the screen, but can be used as a keyboard stand or movie stand. In the meantime, we’ll have to wait and see what Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has in store for us in just a couple of days.
