Apple this week announced it’s holding a special four-day Black Friday shopping event through its online store.
The event will begin Friday, November 23 and run through Monday, November 26. Apple currently has a blank page on its site that will presumably house the deals it will offer during the popular Black Friday shopping day. Coincidentally, Apple made sure to run the program from Black Friday to Cyber Monday, another popular shopping day.
Apple held a similar event last year, offering gift cards up to $150 if you purchased a Mac, iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch.
It’s not as great as some other deals we’ve seen, but it’s something extra you can get for buying an Apple product. Apple seldom offers big deals on its products. When it does, it’s best to jump on them and snag some savings.
If you plan on picking up new Google hardware this holiday season, hold off for a few days. That’s because the search giant is offering terrific deals on its best products, with some sales starting as early as this Friday.
The deals range from a “buy one, get one” 50 percent off deal on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, to $50 off the Home Hub. Below is a breakdown of Google’s best holiday deals (via 9to5Google).
