It is the season of Thanksgiving and as soon as people are done with their turkeys, they will now prepare for the next big holiday of sorts, which is of course the notoriously popular shopping day, Black Friday. This means people will start waking up early and flocking in droves towards major retail stores in order to take advantage of some crazy sales on many different merchandise especially electronics. In light of this tradition, the Cupertino giant has already started putting up teaser pages for their annual Black Friday sale.
It looks like Apple has started putting up teaser banners for their online stores for this coming Friday, commonly known as Black Friday, the last Friday in November and is usually the busiest shopping day of the year in the United States. As of this writing, these teaser banners are currently present in three of Apple's international online stores such as Australia, Italy and United Kingdom. The U.S. store is expected to receive its own banner soon.
Apple has yet to reveal the details with regards to the item that are going on sale. Although according to the teaser, customers will discover "amazing iPad, iPod and Mac gifts for everyone on your list."
Mark your calendar now, and come back to the Apple Online Store for the special one-day event. You’ll discover amazing iPad, iPod and Mac gifts for everyone on your list.
Now keep in mind that Apple is not really known to be that generous when it comes to its Black Friday sales so it is best not to expect much. During the previous year's sale, Apple treated customers to the following: $101 off iMacs, MacBook Pro and MacBook Airs, $41 off the iPad, $21 off for iPod touches and $11 off for iPod nanos. Now that may look decent at a glance but Apple's efforts are usually undercut by other electronic retail stores. For example, there is a leaked Best Buy Black Friday Ad that says they will offering $45 off for the iPad 2 and $150 for a limited supply of iMacs and MacBook Pros, along with other more attractive deals.
Nevertheless, Apple is expected to break sales records this holiday season and with the new iPhone, that doesn't sound far-fetched at all. Hopefully, Apple does have a few pleasant surprises for customers who are planning to purchase some of their products this coming Friday. But still, if you are not too inclined to wake up too early and get in line on your neighborhood electronic store, then Apple's Online Store should be a good place to check out this coming Friday.
