If you’re on the hunt for an Apple Watch, the best Black Friday deal for 2021 in Canada looks to be at Sport Chek, as the retailer also has a 50x Canadian Tire event going on at the same time, plus a $30 gift card bonus when you spend over $125 (Nov. 25-26 only).
According to a breakdown of the math by ‘kingz786’ on RFD, there is the potential to save up to 27% off Apple Watch Series 7, if you’re ready to do some work.
Here’s an example of what an Apple Watch SE or Series 7 will cost if you’re located in Ontario with just the 50x CT Money event:
- Apple Watch SE 40mm – $369*1.13 (ON Tax) = $417 – $74 (50x CT money, 0.004 x 50) = $343
- Apple Watch S7 41mm – $529*1.13 (ON Tax) = $598 – $106 (50x CT money, 0.004 x 50) = $492
To maximize savings, you’ll need to buy Sport Chek gift cards from Canadian Tire (and get $15 CT Money for every $100 spent until Nov. 25). You’ll take these to Sport Chek to apply to your Apple Watch Series 7 purchase, with the 50x CT Money event set to start on Thursday, November 25 to December 1, 2021.
Here’s the math on an entry Apple Watch Series 7 if you buy gift cards from Canadian Tire, plus get 50x CT money and the $30 gift card for spending over $125:
Buy $600 worth of Sport Chek Gift Cards (GCs) from Canadian Tire (CT). Spend on Apple Watch S7. Get back $30 (promo card) + $90 (CT bonus on GCs) + $106 (50X Bonus). New Watch cost is $374, or about ~27% off ( 1-(600/(600+30+90+107)))
That takes the Apple Watch Series 7 41mm to $374, saving you roughly 27% off the retail price. That’s a good deal for a watch that was just released (if the math checks out).
