Target previews Black Friday promotion with great deals on iPads and iPhones
Target on Monday posted to its website a preview of the Black Friday promotions it'll be running from November 28 through November 30.
If you scroll through to page five, you'll see a number of really incredible deals on a range of Apple products.
Here's what holiday shoppers will have to look forward to.
First, the base model iPad Air will retail for US$479, a respectable $20 discount from its usual retail price. But what's really cool is that any purchase of a full-sized iPad (sorry iPad Mini fans) will also come with a $100 Target gift card. That essentially works out to an iPad Air for just $379, an absolutely incredible deal.
Second, 16 GB models of the iPhone 5s will also be discounted by $20 and will be available for $179. iPhone 5s buyers will receive a $30 Target gift card. Not too shabby.
Third, the original iPad Mini will sell for $299 and will come with a pretty solid $75 Target gift card.
Fourth, Apple's favorite hobby -- the Apple TV -- will be available for $89, a $10 discount off the typical retail price. The Apple TV will not come with any gift cards.
Fifth, you might have forgotten that Apple still sells iPods. Well, they mostly sell the iPod touch, but that's an entirely different topic. Getting down to business, Apple's 16 GB fifth-gen iPod Touch will sell for $229. That's not a discounted price, but iPod touch buyers will receive a $50 Target gift card.
And last but not least, Black Friday shoppers at Target will be able to pick up $60 worth of iTunes gift cards for just $50.
Each deal notes that quantities are limited, so if any of the above deals are attractive enough to catch your attention, you might find yourself waiting in line come Thanksgiving night.
