Apple’s US & Canada Black Friday deals are confirmed as gift cards


Our prediction that Apple would offer gift cards rather than cash discounts on Black Friday was confirmed when the U.S. and Canadian stores went live this morning. We first saw this in Australia and New Zealand, whose time-zones made them the first stores to open for Black Friday business.

While Europe bucked the trend, offering cash discounts instead, the North American gift card deals are dollar-for-dollar with Australia. The main ones are:

There are also a range of gift card deals on accessories, with the gift card value reflecting the purchase price.

The best deals are, of course, found elsewhere. Keep up with the latest deals and news by following 9to5Toys on TwitterRSS FeedFacebookGoogle+ and Safari Push to get updated deals as the day progresses. For Apple’s products, we’ll be updating the 9to5Mac Product pages all day long.

    The only good deals from Apple are probably the Apple TV with $25 GC and AirPort Extreme with $50 GC. The rest of them sucks… We never really expect a good discount from Apple though.
