Apple’s Black Friday event kicked off earlier today in Australia and New Zealand, offering a hint of what to expect if and when the promo launches in Canada and the U.S. this Friday.
Apple is offering gift cards on iPad, iPhone, Apple Watch Series 1 and Mac Purchases. Here are what the savings are in Australian dollars and the Canadian exchange equivalent:
- iPad – Up to $140 AUD (about $135 CAD)
- iPhone – Up to $70 AUD (about $68 CAD)
- Apple Watch Series 1 – $35 AUD (about $34 CAD)
- Mac – $210 AUD (about $203 CAD)
Last year’s Black Friday event on Apple.ca offered the following Apple Gift Card amounts on select products:
Apple Gift Card of up to $70 CAD when you buy select 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
So it seems the gift card bonuses are about the same as last year, except we’re not seeing savings on Apple TV. If you want to save on Apple TV 4K or Apple TV 4, head to Costco.ca and take advantage of their $25 off $100 Masterpass coupon.
