Retailers Already Announcing Great Black Friday and Holiday Deals on Apple Products

It is that time of year when every retailer is vying for your shopping dollars by offering tons of "holiday" shopping deals, and plenty have already announced current and upcoming sales on Apple products and accessories. For example, Walmart, Best Buy, Target and Staples have all released previews of their Black Friday circulars with deals on iPhones, iPads and Beats products.

Walmart is offering select iPhone models at a discount plus giving away free gift cards with each purchase over its five day Black Friday event. Not every deal is available on every day, so you will want to check the Walmart Black Friday ad for your location. For example, the 16GB Wi-Fi iPad mini is $199 with a free $30 gift card during "Event #1" on Thursday, November 27.

Target is also giving away gift cards with the purchase of select iPhone and iPad models. Black Friday shoppers can nab a $30 Target gift card with the purchase of an already discounted iPhone 6, a $140 gift card with the purchase of an iPad Air 2, or a $100 gift card with the purchase of an iPad mini 3. You can view Target's Black Friday ad here.

Best Buy customers can trade-in their used iPhone model and upgrade to a 16GB iPhone 6 for only $99. This deal comes with a lot of fine print, and it may be more lucrative and easier to just sell your used iPhone to a third-party electronics re-seller instead of trading it in on Black Friday. Best Buy is also offering $75 off the iPad mini 3 and $100 off the iPad Air 2 during its Black Friday sale. You can view Best Buy's Black Friday deals here.

Staples is offering deals on the iPad, Apple TV, Beats products and iTunes gift cards. You can see all of Staples' Black Friday Apple deals here.

If you rather stay home and avoid Black Friday, online retailers such as Griffin Technology are also holding holiday sales for Apple accessories. Online shoppers can save 15% off site-wide at by using the promo code GIFTGUIDE at checkout.

These are just a few of the already announced Black Friday and holiday sales, and more are sure to be announced as we get closer to Thanksgiving. Be sure to follow us on Twitter for future Apple-related sales announcements.
