Apple's produces are still some of the most popular items in the market. And when a day like Cyber Monday comes along, a large group of the public sets their eyes on the sleek gadgets that are - for the most part of the year - heavy on the prices. However, when looking for deals that will hit and be available on Cyber Monday, the Cupertino-based company's direct offerings may not offer the best savings.
As USA Today notes, Apple is directly providing gift cards to buyers. A purchase of the Apple Watch Series 1 and Apple TV will generate a US$25 gift card for example. Meanwhile, the iPhone 6, 6S and SE will give buyers a US$50 gift card. Choosing the iPad Pro, Air 2 or Mni 4 will provide a gift card of US$100. The older generations of the MacBook and MacBook Air will be sold along with US$150 gift cards.
However, there are no discounts for the latest products, such as the Apple Watch Series 2, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar. As such, it might be best to look at authorized retailers instead, such as Target, Best Buy and Walmart. Target if selling the iPad Air 2 32GB for US$274.00, which is US$125 cheaper than Apple Store prices. The Apple Watch Series 1 is also available at US$198 - a US$80 discount over Apple's offerings.
Target is, according to Mac Rumors, generally selling all Apple products at 15 percent off. The retail store, along with Best Buy and Walmart have offerings on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. All three retailers are providing US$250 gift cards for a purchase of either handheld at their stores. Various carriers, such as Verizon, Sprint and AT&R, are also offering the same for free when exchanged for an older but well-working device.
