Black Friday is almost upon us, and consumers will be climbing over each other to get their hands on some of the best deals in town. Famous retailers – Staples and RadioShack have had a bit of a slip up, and according to leaked flyers, their deals for the big day have been revealed a tad bit early.
Apparently RadioShack and Staples have planned for an array of deals on most Apple-branded products, including the iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch and various accessories.
Staples is focusing largely on discounted iPads with a 20% immediate discount on select models, with a slight discount on the Apple TV as well. Staples is all set to knock off an impressive $80 for the iPad Air 16GB putting it at a modest $319 only. The iPad mini 2 with Retina display will get a $60 cut, bringing the tablet down to only $239. That’s not all, the iPad with Retina display will be up for sale at $279 with a good $70 cut. We don’t see any deals for the newer models but that’s hardly surprising. Staples is also offering the Apple TV for $79 instead of $99, along with a very modest 10% discount on all available range of Beats headphones. Oh and $50 and over iTunes Gift Cards will be available at a 15% discount.
Staples has a variety of non-Apple products up for sale as well, including an Intel Atom powered ASUS X205TA 11.6-inch Windows 8.1 notebook going for a ridiculous $100. You also have The Galaxy Tab 3, Tab 4, the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 6 and HD 7 and much more.
RadioShack is keeping it simple this time around and has no major Apple products included in the offered deals. However, you get the Apple TV for $85, while the 5th-gen iPod touch 16GB will be up for sale at a mere $149. And like Staples, a 15% discount will be offered on iTunes Gift Cards as well. As far as headphones are concerned, Beats by Dre Solo HD Drenched will be up for sale at $69.99, but with a mail-in rebate. As mentioned earlier, plenty of iPhone and iPad accessories will be up for sale as well.
