AirPods Pro

What is the deal? AirPods Pro at its lowest price of $ 169.00 ($ 80 off)
Where can I get it? Walmart (online only)
When does it start? Wednesday, November 25 at 7 p.m. ET

In one of the best Black Friday deals, Walmart will have Apple’s AirPods Pro for $ 169.00, down from the normal price of $ 249.00. The typical discount for AirPods Pro in recent weeks has been around $ 199.00, and the lowest we’ve seen on a new pair is $ 189.00.

This makes the Walmart sale the best price for the AirPods Pro we’ve tracked, and it’s definitely worth picking up if you’ve been waiting to buy the Bluetooth headphones. Buyers should note that the AirPods Pro sale (and most other Walmart Black Friday discounts) will launch on Wednesday, November 25 at 7 p.m. ET.

Apple Watch Serie 3

What is the deal? Apple Watch S3 at an all-time lowest price of $ 119 ($ 80 off)
Where can I get it? Walmart (online only)
When does it start? Wednesday, November 25 at 7 p.m. ET

Another solid offering from Walmart, this sale on the Apple Watch Series 3 is a great entry-level price for anyone looking to gift the Apple Watch this holiday. You can get the 38mm GPS model for just $ 119, down from the typical asking price of $ 179.

The larger 42mm GPS model is also on sale for $ 149, down from a price tag of $ 209. Both sales are huge discounts, even if the Apple Watch Series 3 is three years old right now. It still has all the expected Apple Watch features like workouts and activity tracking.

iPad

What is the deal? Various discounts on the entire line of Apple iPads
Where can I get it? Amazon, Best Buy, Target, Staples y más
When does it start? We should start seeing solid iPad discounts on Wednesday, November 25

The Apple iPad has been featured in some of the early Black Friday ads, most notably Best Buy. The retailer has confirmed that it will be up to $ 70 off the 10.2-inch iPad, up to $ 100 off the iPad Air, and up to $ 150 off the iPad Pro.

We’ve already been tracking some solid, low discounts across Apple’s iPad lineup this month, so we’re expecting some of these sales to carry over to Black Friday as well. Keep an eye out for retailers like Amazon for the best ongoing iPad sales this season.

MacBook (Intel)

What is the deal? Various discounts on Apple MacBook Pro and Air models
Where can I get it? Amazon, Best Buy, B&H Photo and more
When does it start? We should start seeing solid Mac discounts as early as Wednesday, November 25

Best Buy is once again one of the top retailers to describe its upcoming MacBook Pro and MacBook Air discounts for Black Friday. You can save up to $ 250 on the MacBook Pro and up to $ 200 on the MacBook Air.

MacBook (Apple Silicon M1)

Of course, the biggest discounts will be found on previous generation Apple laptops, which means that if you are buying Macs with M1, you won’t find such a great deal.

That’s not to say it’s impossible, though: Amazon already offers a $ 50 discount on 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air M1 devices. It is unclear if we will see this sale expand to more retailers next week.

Powerbeats Pro

What is the deal? Powerbeats Pro up to the lowest price of $ 159.99 ($ ​​90 off)

Where can I get it? Target y Best Buy
When does it start? Live now in select colors

Target and Best Buy are discounting the Powerbeats Pro at a remarkably low price of $ 159.99 this Black Friday. This $ 90 deal is the lowest we’ve seen for workout-focused Bluetooth headphones, but it’s only available in select colors.

Video game

What is the deal? Black Friday is always a good time of year to save on the latest games.
Where can I get it? GameStop, Amazon, Target, Best Buy, Walmart y más
When does it start? Digital sales in the console markets have already started, but you can expect retailers to join in starting Wednesday, November 25.

As always, Black Friday provides ample opportunity to save on new and recent video games, and each retailer has a variety of offers this year. Popular new releases at low prices include Ghost of Tsushima ($ 39.99 at Best Buy and GameStop), Watch Dogs: Legion ($ 30 at Walmart), and The Last of Us Part II ($ 29.99 at Best Buy, GameStop, Walmart and Target ).

Other recent releases on sale include Death Stranding ($ 19.99 at Best Buy, GameStop, and Walmart), Gears 5 ($ 4.99 at Best Buy), Marvel’s Avengers ($ 29.99 at Best Buy), and Luigi’s Mansion 3 ($ 30 at Walmart). .

In terms of consoles, the most popular with retailers this year is a Nintendo Switch bundle with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (digital download) and three months of Nintendo Switch Online at $ 299.99. This sale basically gives you Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and the Nintendo Switch online membership for free, and it will be available at Target, Best Buy, Walmart, and GameStop starting next week.

Apple Gift Card

What is the deal? If you buy a $ 100 Apple gift card, you can get a $ 20 Best Buy or Target gift card
Where can I get it? Target y Best Buy
When does it start? November 27

Since Apple made the switch to the unified “Apple Gift Card,” it effectively eliminated the popular 20 percent discount on iTunes gift cards. Don’t expect direct discounts to return to the new Apple Gift Card in 2020, but you can expect the next best option: credit at a retailer like Target or Best Buy.

At both stores next week, if you buy a $ 100 Apple gift card, you will receive a $ 20 gift card that can be used at each respective retailer. This is far from as good a deal as the easy cash discounts seen in the era of iTunes gift cards, but if you plan to do a lot of shopping at Target or Best Buy next week, you could at least allocate the $ 20 to more Christmas shopping. .
