It's time to start planning your Black Friday shopping, with some great deals available on November 29, the day after Thanksgiving. In fact, some deals are starting on Thanksgiving this year. Among the websites tracking iPhone- and iPad-related deals are iMore and IntoMobile. One of the best deals on the iPad may be Target's, which is offering a $100 gift card with any iPad purchase. Plus, they're lowering the price of the price of the 16GB WiFi iPad Air to $479. So that means that, in essence, you're getting the iPad Air for $379.
WalMart will be offering a great deal on the original iPad mini. They're selling the 16GB WiFi model for $299, the same as Apple, but they're tossing in a $100 gift card, which is in effect lowering your price to $199.
The best iPhone deal may be WalMart's price on the 16GB iPhone 5c. They'll be selling it for $45 plus tossing in a $75 gift card with every iPhone 5c purchase. Essentially, they're giving you $30 to buy the phone. Of course, you'll need to sign up for a two-year contract. Their Black Friday price on the iPhone 5s is $189, again with a $75 gift card thrown in.
WalMart's Black Friday deals will run from 6 p.m. November 28–6 p.m. December 1.
Other deals include Best Buy's price of $449 for the 16GB WiFi iPad Air and Target's price of $179 for the iPhone 5s plus a $30 gift card.
iMore also lists great deals on a range of iPhone and iPad accessories. One of the most interesting is Best Buy's price of $85 for a $100 iTunes gift card. Seems like a no-brainer.
