2016 Apple Canada Black Friday Deals Revealed: Gift Cards For Everyone

When is a sale not a sale? When it’s Apple that’s holding it, obviously. While the rest of the world goes Black Friday crazy with huge discounts on TVs, laptops, cameras, wearables and pretty much every type of object in existence, Apple is playing its own game.

Instead of a Black Friday sale, it’s holding a “one-day shopping event.” Check out the website here.

Apple has revealed its 2016 Black Friday deals in Canada and the USA and it’s all gift cards: you can get a $50 gift card with the purchase of select unlocked iPhones and up to $200 with select Mac computers. The Black Friday sale will last all day today, November 25.

Here are all the 2016 Apple Black Friday deals:
  • Apple Gift Card of up to $70 CAD when you buy selectΒ iPhone models
  • Apple Gift Card of up to $140 CAD when you buy select iPad models
  • Apple Gift Card of up to $35 CAD when you buy any Apple Watch Series 1
  • Apple Gift Card of up to $200 CAD when you buy select Mac computers
  • Apple Gift Card of up to $35 when you buy an Apple TV

Again, if you’re planning on getting in on the Apple gift card frenzy, keep in mind that this sale is for today, and today only.

Disappointingly, the gift cards are not available with the purchase of all Apple products. The latest iPhone 7 and 7 Plus phones are excluded, for instance, as is the Apple Watch Series 2.

Happy Black Friday, everyone!

    Are the latest MacBook pros included in this promo

    I did the math – to buy a 12.9″ 32GB iPad pro, after tax this deal is only $22 more than buying a refurb. Great deal. Just have to convince my wife!

    $70 from apple is more than i ever got before!!!!
    thanks apple!

  • Sadly, no.

  • It’s easier to ask for forgiveness versus ask for permission they say, haha

    $ 35 is better than a poke in the eye for sure. My son is getting an iPhone SE this Christmas.

  • Lucky kid πŸ™‚

    No kidding. But – as a mom who loves her gadgets – I know how much the iPhone means to him. It’s his lifeline. His (second hand) iPhone 5C is failing quickly. He needed an upgrade. But I’m done with Craigslist. I need that Apple care thing. Especially with the screen option. I’m an enabler. πŸ™

  • I would do the same thing for my kid when he’s older, these smartphones mean lots to them to communicate with friends!

  • karinatwork

    Plus I get to know where he is at all times with Find My Friends. πŸ™‚

  • Haha, always a catch πŸ™‚

  • karinatwork

    Hell no. I’m not spending $ 50 a month for a phone plan and then he gets to have his privacy. πŸ˜‰

    D’oh. I just bought a MacBook at bestbuy 9 days ago. What’s their return policy like?

    Hey Gary, trying to help a friend upgrade their phone. With all the black Friday promo’s going on is it still the best deal to just buy unlocked from Apple and go with Public Mobile?
    I see a few $0 iphone promos going on with 2-year terms. Such a headache trying to weigh that vs the plan they force you to buy. Some being minimum $80 with a free phone, others being minimum $70 with a small fee for the phone. They seem to make it intentionally confusing to try to cross shop.
