Frequently asked questions about Apple Cyber Monday deals
Does Apple have any Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals?
Apple rarely offers discounts on its products directly through its own store, and Black Friday and Cyber Monday are no exception. If you want to get hold of an iPad or MacBook deal, you’d better stop by other retailers like Amazon or Best Buy. However, Apple is offering gift card promotions for its iPad line and carrier-supported trade-on deals for iPhone 13 models.
Should I buy from Amazon, Target, Best Buy, or Walmart?
Many of these retailers have very similar deals on products like the AirPods and Apple Watch, meaning you have multiple options should a retailer run out of stock. In cases where multiple retailers sell the same product for the same price, consider which retailer is the most affordable for you in terms of shipping options.
If you have an Amazon Prime membership and want to receive the product asap, it may make more sense to buy through Amazon. However, if you’d rather collect the item from your nearby Target or Best Buy, you should consider ordering from your preferred brick-and-mortar retailer. Regardless of which major retailer you buy it from, Apple will support and maintain the product.
Do these stores offer curb pickup?
Yes, Target, Best Buy, and Walmart all offer roadside pickups. However, you should check with your local dealer as the rules may vary based on location and items purchased.
