Black Friday falls on 26 November this year (2021). Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving in the US, is traditionally the start of the sales. Except that this year, just like every year for the past few years, the sales started weeks before!

In fact, you can generally find a discount on an Apple product year round, although not from Apple itself (unless you shop in Apple's Refurbished Store).

But the best discounts, theoretically, happen during the Black Friday deals bonanza, so it's a great time to invest in a new Mac. We're here to help you find the best deals.

We round up the best MacBook Air dealsMacBook Pro deals, iMac deals and Mac mini deals year round, so we know that the best deals don't always happen at Black Friday and we will know if a Black Friday deal is actually decent, or just ok. You can also check out our overall round-up of all the best Apple deals.

Where to get the best Black Friday deals

Hoping to save money on a new Mac this Black Friday. Here's what to expect from the various Mac resellers, including Apple itself. 

What you won't get...

The one thing holding the deals back this year could be the stock shortages that have meant that new products are incredibly hard to get hold of. For example, ever since it launched in April this year it's been very difficult to find the 24in iMac in stock. Read: Where to buy 24in iMac M1.

If you are after one of the newest Macs you may struggle to find one on sale, let alone a Black Friday deal!

Apple

Apple black friday 2021

Apple's Black Friday offer isn't a sale as such, but rather the company offers vouchers with qualifying sales. So you're making the saving on the next product you buy, not this one.

In 2021 Apple's Black Friday event will began on 12am on Friday 26 November and continued until 11:59pm on 29 November (aka Cyber Monday). Visit Apple's Shopping Event here.

In 2021, Apple is offering customers a gift card worth up to £160/$200/AUD$280 with select purchases. Here are the gift card values you will be able get with a qualifying purchase:

  • £160/$200/A$280 with a 27in iMac
  • £80/$100/A$140 with MacBook Air, 13in MacBook Pro or Mac mini
  • Up to £80/$100/A$140 with iPad Pro 11in and iPad Pro 12in

  • £40/$50/AU$70 with accessories including Apple Pencil (2nd gen), Smart Keyboard Folio, MagSafe Duo Charger, AirTag (4 pack), and Magic Keyboard.

Of course not every Apple product is included in the offer. This is probably because Apple doesn't need to incentivize people buying the newer products like the 14in and 16in MacBook Pro, iPhone 13 series, 2021 iPads, and Apple Watch 7.
