Apple’s Black Friday 2018 offers – disappointing deals again?
Everyone knows Apple with its devices like MacBook, iMac, iPhone and iPad. In fact, Apple was one of the first companies which launched Black Friday offers in Europe. Unfortunately, Apple is not participating every year in the Black Friday sales… And unlike other major retailers in UK, Apple’s shopping event is only valid from Friday until Cyber Monday.
Disappointing Apple Black Friday deals last year
After no deals in 2016 and 2017, Apple announced a special Black Friday sale for last year. But this “special” sale was nothing like special. When buying in an Apple Store or online, you could get a cashback-giftcard of maximum £120.
- Up to £40 giftcard when you buy selected iPhones
- Up to £80 giftcard when you buy selected iPads
- Up to £120 giftcard when you buy selected iMacs
The problem with this giftcard-discount: Apple’s products are waaaay cheaper at other UK retailers. In a lot of cases, even with the giftcard, you paid more if you bought directly at Apple on Black Friday than you would have paid at other retailers. A lot of customers were very disappointed with these Apple discounts.
What will happen on Black Friday 2018?
After these disappointing offers, there are two likely possibilities for 2018:
- There won’t be any Apple UK Black Friday offers for 2018
- There will be big discounts on Apple products
We think that possibility one is more likely. There are already a lot of major UK retailers with huge discount on Apple products and there is no need that Apple as the producer and brand it is, needs to make their own special deals.
When Apple decides to make another special Black Friday sale, we can look forward to offers beginning on 23 November. These offers will be valid until Cyber Monday on 26 November 2018. Most likely there will be discounts on refurbished products and “older” products like the Apple iPhone 7 or the Apple Watch Series 1 and 2. It’s highly unlikely that there will be discounts on the flagships iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus.
Of course we will keep you updated during the “hot phase” beginning in mid-November 2018.
