Apple has kicked off their annual one-day Black Friday sale with savings on many of their iPod and iPad models.
However, this year their deals seem to be not quite up to the savings offered by the big box stores. Below are Apple’s sale prices along with those from Best Buy and Target.
Apple’s deals are available online and in-stores, as are Target and Best Buy’s, but many of the latter two stores’ deals are sold out online.
Unsurprisingly the iPad Mini has been completely left out of the sales, but Apple is also offering discounts on their iPad Smart Case ($15 off), iPad Smart Covers ($11 off polyurethane, $21 off leather)
Apple is offering $11 off the 16GB iPod Nano, while Target is giving you a $20 gift card, if you buy it at the full $149 price. In other deals, Target is also offering $10 gift cards for Apple TV. Plus you can save an additional 5% on Target purchases if you have a RED Card.
And Best Buy has a $100 iTunes Card for $80.
