Apple has a history of offering very small – if any – Black Friday and Cyber Monday discounts. So the best way to save on Apple products is to shop sales from other stores like these.

Is Apple holding a Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale?

- $25 Apple Store gift card with a purchase of AirPods
- $50 Apple Store gift card with the purchase of iPhone XR or iPhone 8
- $25 Apple Store gift card with purchase of an Apple Watch Series 3

Save on Apple products at Target’s Black Friday sale
Even if Apple doesn’t get in on Black Friday sales, you still might be able to save some cash on expensive tech gifts at Target’s Black Friday sale. Keep in mind the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released guidelines that deem shopping in crowded malls in the days around Thanksgiving a high-risk activity for the spread of COVID-19. Shopping online is your best bet to get Target deals without the risk.
The Target REDcard™ Credit Card may just free up more of your holiday budget when you take advantage of these perks:
- Save 5% on Target and Target.com purchases. The Target REDcard™ offers a 5% discount on qualified purchases at Target stores and online. If you’re planning on making a big purchase on Apple products, this could be a sizable discount.
- Early access to Black Friday deals. Cardholders get access to select deals online on November 27 — a full two days earlier than Black Friday.
- Free two-day shipping on qualifying orders. Use the Target REDcard™ and spend $35 or more to qualify for free two-day shipping — and let’s be honest, you’ll easily meet that minimum when buying Apple products.
- 30-day extended returns. Get an extra 30 days on top of the normal return window when you buy with the REDcard. This applies to purchases made at Target locations and Target.com.

How to save on Apple products on Cyber Monday
The Apple Store doesn’t always participate in Cyber Monday sales, so you may have to look elsewhere to save on a new device. Be on the lookout for price cuts on popular Apple phones, laptops, tablets, accessories and more from other retailers, like Amazon, eBay, Best Buy, Walmart, Target and Newegg.
In previous years, most retailers that slashed prices on Apple products for Black Friday carried those same deals through the weekend and into Cyber Monday.
How can I save on previous generation of iPhones?
While you might not find huge deals on the latest Apple releases, you can save big on previous models. Here are a few tips for finding older generation iPhones for less on Black Friday and Cyber Monday:
- Look for refurbished and second-hand iPhones from retailers like eBay, MacMall, Newegg and Best Buy.
- The iPhone SE is one of the most affordable iPhones available, but you’ll need to get it from a marketplace or other retailer, since the Apple Store no longer carries this model.
- Check out the iPhone 9 or 10. These models have some of the latest technology and updates, but without the hefty price tag of the newest iPhones.
