While Black Friday Apple Store discounts are thin, the mothership all but guaranties availability and sweetens the offer with generous Product RED support

If you are looking for the best deals on Apple’s coolest new Macs, iPads and iPhones, the Apple Store isn’t the best place to look. However, whereas other retailers can claim better prices, only the mothership can guarantee availability and generous support of the Product RED campaign.

“Purchasing any of Apple’s iPhone lineup — including the iPhone 5c, 5s, 6, and 6 Plus — will net a $50 gift card, though they are limited to two gift cards per household,” write the bloggers at AppleInsider. “iPad buyers will receive the same with the same restriction, while consumers bringing home an iPod nano or iPod touch will have a $25 gift card added.”

Black Friday Apple Store Deals

— Beats headphones nets you a $25 gift card
— Buy a Mac gets you a $100 gift card
— $25 gift card with the purchase of an iPod nano
— $50 gift card with the purchase of an iPod touch
— $50 gift card with iPhone 5c, 5s, and 6 Plus

Apple gift cards can be spent at the iTunes Store, the Mac App Store, the iOS App Store and/or the iBooks Store.

In addition to better device availability, your Black Friday Apple Store also delivers a generous sense of giving.

For example, on Friday, November 28 (aka Blac Friday) all US Apple Stores put special Product RED gift cards in the hands of customers that purchase select products. Further, on Monday, December 1, aka World AIDS Day, Apple will donate a portion of in-store and online sales to AIDS research and prevention.

Bottom line? This year’s Black Friday Apple Store deals are the same, but the company has sweetened their offers by donating to Product RED.

So, will you be going for “better” deals elsewhere or the feel good factor? Inquiring minds want to know…
