Apple has begun teasing its customers with Black Friday savings.
The company, which didn’t offer Black Friday deals in 2015, opted to allow third-party retailers such as Best Buy and Target to offer deals instead.
This year, Apple posted the following:
Our one-day shopping event will be here before you know it. Come back this Friday to check off everyone on your list.
Last year, Apple SVP of Retail Angela Ahrendts said the company was backing away from Black Friday promotions because “being good to your employees will always be good for your business.”
Via its Black Friday web site, Apple said its one-day shopping event will include free shipping on in-stock items ordered by 5 PM. Customers will be able to participate in the event both with the Apple Store app as well as in-store and retail locations will offer extended holiday hours with no uniform opening and closing times.
Apple has also provided easy links to four holiday gift collections curated by the company, including
“Apple gifts,” “Music gifts,” “Photography gifts” and “Games & Toys.”
The company has yet to specify which products will be on sale and at what discount, especially with the purchase of other Apple products, such as a $100 gift card with the purchase of a Mac.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
