For Black Friday 2014, Apple is now offering a one-day only deal on select products. The company is looking to bundle a special (PRODUCT)RED iTunes gift card along with each product as a part of its campaign to support World AIDS Day 2014. Customers will be entitled to gift cards valued between $25 and $100 depending on the product they buy.
It’s not a big surprise that Apple is not giving direct discounts on its products, something which many customers are already aware of. Instead, in typical fashion, the company is retaining the regular prices but will toss in a gift card with the purchase.
Here’s the brief list of the products that Apple will be throwing in the gift cards with:
- Select Mac models – $100 iTunes gift card
- Any iPhone – $50 iTunes gift card
- Any iPad – $50 iTunes gift card
- Select models of Beats by Dre headphones – $25 iTunes gift card
- Apple TV – $25 iTunes gift card
- iPod nano – $25 iTunes gift card
- iPod touch – $25 iTunes gift card
Apple had earlier announced that it would be offering select products with the inclusion of this special (PRODUCT)RED iTunes gift card on Black Friday, and today is the day you can finally get your hands on the deals offered by the company.
As it was revealed earlier, a percentage of the proceedings from the sales of these products would be headed to the Global Fund. In a further effort to support World AIDS Day 2014, Apple has also marked some apps on the App Store, the proceedings from which will be donated to the Global Fund as well to help fight AIDS, with the promotion lasting till the 7th of December.
From a consumer point of view if you were looking to grab some deals on Apple products that were a total steal, it was a tad bit obvious that the company will not be offering any major price cuts on any of its products, apart from accessories, and that the tech giant would be looking at promotions with the inclusion of the usual gift cards. This is exactly what it has done, and this time, it’s for a cause.
You are likely to find some real good deals on Apple products from retailers like Walmart, Target, Best Buy and more, and if it’s a gift card that concerns you, then you can even get a $100 iTunes gift card for just $75 without needing to buy a Mac, or any product for that matter, from the Apple Store.
