If you're taking to the stores on Friday to kick off the holiday season, keep the Apple Store on your list. As teased earlier this week, Apple is holding a one-day shopping event, with discounts on both its own products and many third parties' as well.
The discounts, while not huge, are still significant for Apple, which tends not to knock its prices down. You can pick up iPads for around 8-percent off, iPod touch models for around 10-percent off, and iPod nanos for $11 off. Those looking to pick up a new Mac are in luck as well: MacBook Airs, MacBook Pros, and iMacs are all $101 off. (Apple, however, has not put any discounts on the Mac mini or the increasingly long-in-the-tooth Mac Pro.)
Apple's also put several of its accessories on sale, so you can save $11 on a Magic Trackpad, Wireless Keyboard, or Magic Mouse; $21 on a 2TB Time Capsule or AirPort Extreme; $11 on an AirPort Express; and more. You'll also find discounts on many third-party products, including speakers and headphones, cases for your iPhone or MacBook, app-enabled accessories, and other tools.
The special pricing is valid for Friday, November 25 only, and doesn't include taxes. Customers also can't combine the special pricing with other offers. While the deals are available in brick-and-mortar Apple Stores, not all products may be available in all stores, and supplies are limited to stock on hand. Of course, you can always shop online as well. Happy bargain-hunting!
