After not holding a sale last year for Black Friday, Apple has surprised consumers by posting a new Ad on its website for a Black Friday 2016 sale. Buyers can expect the company to provide discounts on its products and also provide free shipping. The sale is only for a day and will happen on Nov. 25.

Black Friday 2016: Apple Offers

Apple did take part in the 2014 Black Friday shopping day, but in 2014, consumers were disappointed. This year, the company is having a one day sale, but do not expect great discounts. Apple discounts are usually not that big and consumers can find better deals at other retailers, according to Apple Insider.

However, Apple does provide free two-day shipping and a lot of consumers make use of this offer to empty their cart by 5:00 PM. The pricing and discounts details have not been published, but that should go live on the same day. The sale page has an Apple Watch showing the Calendar app and asking users to save the date. It also stated the following;

Our one-day shopping event will be here before you know it. Come back this Friday to check everyone off your list.

Other Apple Offers

The company has included links to gift bundles for music, photography, Apple products, Games and Toys. A link directing to the iTunes gift card section is also available on Apple website's "Black Friday Special Offers" page. Of course, there will be several other deals on Apple products elsewhere.

As per ZDNet, Apple may also offer price cuts for Mac products and gift cards. Those who prefer to buy iTunes Gift cards for cheaper rates, should definitely mark their calendar. Once again, the sale will last only for a day and it starts on Nov. 25. Apple suggests consumers to use the Apple Store app for a fast and smooth shopping experience.

Black Friday is a good day for consumers, as almost every electronic item is sold at a discount. And since it's the start of the holiday season, companies make a good profit as well. The day has been taking place in the U.S. since 1932 and is the busiest shopping day of the year.
