Anyone expecting to receive $150 or so off their next Mac won’t get it this time, at least not from Apple. The Cupertino tech company’s Black Friday deals are all gift card offers.
If you buy a Mac or iOS device, you get an App Store gift card. These are valid towards anything on the iTunes Store, iBooks, App Store, Mac Apps Store or any other Apple online storefront. It’s a bit of a bummer that there are no discounts on Macs and iPads, but there are plenty at stores, too. It just depends on what you want. A gift card is still useful, because it’s credit towards stuff you will probably end up buying anyway.
Check it all out before the end of the day.
