Do you know what Black Friday is? No? Then you’re probably British. It’s traditionally the day US retailers hold big sales to kick the Christmas shopping into gear, but isn’t something we partake in over here. Apparently, it was originally called that in reference to the traffic it created on the roads – who knew?
So, up until now, it’s been a Yank thing, but now Apple are bringing it over here. It’s not often you see an Apple sale, since they keep all their retail partners on such a short leash, but Friday that all changes, at least for those buying direct from Apple.
It’s not clear which products are going to be discounted, or by how much, but the graphic they use seems to indicate it’ll be most things (although I can’t see a Macbook in it). So, the advice today is to sit tight if you’re in the market for something Apple-related – Friday could be your lucky day.
