Where to save the most for the iPhone 6, iPad Air 2 and more on Black Friday [Black Friday Deals]

Share this:

Black Friday is coming up in a few days and it’s time to decide which stores to shop at and which ones to skip.  We have compiled all of the ads we have seen for Apple and Beats by Dr. Dre products to determine which retailers will have the best deals. Apple has not announced their sales yet, but they typically have modest price decreases. In this post, we look at the iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad mini, iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, iPod touch (5th gen.), Apple TV and iTunes gift cards. We display the top three deals with the lowest starting price.

  2. Best Buy: $99.99 with trade-in of any working iPhone

2 x $100 iTunes gift card multipacks: $158.94 at Sam’s Club

  3. Target: $170 (Buy one iTunes gift card and get one for 30% off)
  4. RadioShack: $170 (15% off all iTunes gift cards)
  5. Staples: $170 (15% off $50 or more in iTunes gift cards)
  6. Best Buy: $170 ($100 iTunes gift card for $85)
  7. Cosco: $170 ($100 iTunes gift card multipack for $85)

For the iTunes gift cards, many retailers advertised buy one and get one for less, so we calculated the price of two $100 gift card multi-packs (or $200 in gift cards) to find the best deal.  We included the other retailers on this list since it was difficult to compare them and everyone else tied for 3rd place.
