"Lucky Bags" will return to Japan's Apple Stores

'Lucky Bags' back in Japan's Apple StoresFukubukuro, or "Mystery Bag," is a Japanese New Year's Day tradition during which merchants sell sealed bags of various items at a substantial discount, often as high as 50 percent. Apple Stores will participate once again on January 2, 2013. The bags will sell for US$390. In previous years, lucky customers have walked away with iPods, speakers, T-shirts and calendars.

If you pick one up in January, please let us know. Customers have been known to camp out the night before, so get there early.
