Apple seems to be trialling small discounts on Apple Watches purchased with iPhones in certain stores. Through a store-only deal running today through November 15th, Apple is knocking $50 off the price of Apple Watches and Apple Watch Sports when bought with new iPhones. Not only is the promo not available online but it’s also being offered in select stores in just two states: California and Massachusetts.
Target has today revealed its Black Friday deals for November 28 to November 30, which include some incredible savings on the latest Apple devices. Consumers will be able to pick up a 16GB Wi-Fi iPad Air — usually priced at $499 — for $479 with a free $100 Target gift card.
The 16GB iPad mini (original model) can also be had for $299 with a free $75 gift card.
Other Apple products in the sale include the latest Apple TV, which is down to $89 after a $10 discount; the fifth-generation 16GB iPod touch, which is $229 with a free $50 gift card; and the 16GB iPhone 5s, which is $179.99 with a free $30 gift card when you take out a new two-year contract with AT&T or Verizon.
Target is also offering $60 worth of iTunes gift cards for just $50.
Furthermore, the retailer’s $100 gift card doesn’t just come with the iPad Air — but any full-size iPad, including the cheaper iPad 2.
We don’t know what Apple’s Black Friday deals will involve yet, but last year the Cupertino company knocked up to $41 off the full-size iPad. If we see the same discount again, that’ll make it slightly cheaper than Target’s price upfront, but of course, you won’t get a $100 gift card with it.
Target’s Black Friday deals go live on November 28, and last until November 30.

Everyone is discounting the iPhone 5c already, and it’s making for some great deals for prospective buyers. Yesterday Best Buy announced that it would be selling the iPhone 5c with a $50 gift card, and Radio Shack announced a very similar deal today. As to not be left out, Walmart has announced its very own deal, offering the iPhone 5c at the discounted rate of just $45.
The best part about this deal? It doesn’t end as soon as Best Buy’s or Radio Shack’s deals which end as soon as Monday. Walmart has announced that its deal isn’t just a short time discount, as it is scheduled to last through the holiday season.
While discounts are fairly common, it is rare to see such a significant price drop within just a couple weeks of the annoucement of an iPhone. Walmart is offering over 50% off the iPhone 5c, which is unheard of for a new Apple device. If you’re looking to buy a new iPhone 5c, it is likely that Walmart will be your best bet, especially if you want to wait until closer to the holiday season (after Best Buy and Radio Shack deals expire).
Apple has updated its third-party USB adapter trade-in program page to note that the program is worldwide. Apple originally only noted support for the program in China and the United States.
The company then updated the page to share that customers in Australia ($14 AUD), Canada ($11 CAD), France (10 €), Germany (10 €), Japan (￥1,000), and the United Kingdom (10 €) are eligible as well.
Now that the program has officially begun, Apple has providing special discount pricing for official Apple USB charging adapters for several more countries (shown above). Not all of the countries have official Apple Retail Stores, but the program will take place at select authorized resellers as well.
Walmart is continuing to slash price tags on Apple products this holiday season, as the global retailer just announced it is now offering the 16GB iPhone 5 for $127.
Walmart also cut the iPhone 4S from $89.97 to $47 starting today, with both smartphones sales subject to the usual two-year contract, and it further lowered the 16 GB fourth-generation iPadwith Wi-Fi from $499 to $399. Walmart said its incredible iPad deal would feature a bonus $30 iTunes card beginning Dec. 17, but all special rollback prices are in-store only.
Target plans to offer an Apple product sale, as well. It will discount Virgin Mobile’s Prepaid 16GB iPhone 4S from $449.99 to $399.99 starting Dec. 16, but the deal is only available at Target Mobile locations.
Best Buy is taking $50 off all Apple iPhone 5 models with a 2 year contract, which is certainly welcomed news for those of you who have been shopping for the handset this holiday season. Thanks to the savings Best Buy instated this evening, the 16GB model now starts at just $149. This is the largest discount we’ve seen thus far for the all new iPhone 5, and there’s no word on how long it will last. Our inside man over at Best Buy has advised us that the gift card offer cannot be stacked with this discount. If you did cash in on the gift card deal then you can surrender the card and get $50 off or if you used the card already you can still get another $25 from your original purchase.
The deal ends January 5th.
AT&T has announced that it will off a discount off any iPad if you sign up for a new two year data plan. The new offer starts on November 9th and offers $100 off any iPad with LTE. The offer doesn’t just cover iPads either, any tablet that AT&T sells can qualify for the $100 discount. Tablets can be purchased at any AT&T store, online or through selected AT&T agents.
Just in time for the holiday shopping season, AT&T* today announced it is offering a promotional discount to tablet customers. Beginning Friday, Nov. 9, customers will receive $100 off any tablet purchased at an AT&T company owned store or online at http://www.att.com or at selected agents or retailers with a two-year data plan agreement.
Tablet customers can choose from several qualifying data plan options, including adding a tablet to an AT&T Mobile Share plan for just $10 per month. With Mobile Share, customers share a single bucket of data – from 1GB up to 20GB – with other devices, including smartphones, tablets, gaming devices, and more.
This type of buying model is very common place around the world as it makes a lot of sense for carriers to tie you in to a longer term contract. It is actually nothing new and is very similar to buying a new subsidized phone with a new contract. If you are planning on buying a new iPad and will use the data plan over the two year period, you may as well save the $100. If you will only use data on a more casual basis, it may be better to just pay for the iPad outright. At least now you have a little bit more choice.
