Apple has gone live with its Black Friday one day sale and you could make a reasonable saving if you take advantage of the one day event. The sale includes the iPad with Retina display, iPad 2, iPod touch, MacBook Pro with Retina display, MacBook pro, MacBook Air and a few selected accessories.
Apple is sending out emails confirming that it will have some items on sale on Black Friday. For those that don't know, Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving in the US and traditionally signifies the first shopping day of the holiday season.
Apple is set to hold a sale across Asia to celebrate The Year of the Dragon. The sale will start on January 6 and will last for one day only. As with all Apple sales, you will not know what the sale covers until it actually starts.
Customers in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Singapore and the Philippines are eligible for Apple’s one-day sale, which the company is calling ‘Red Friday’, offering a range of accessories, gadgets and software — as well as some Apple Store exclusives.
Apple apparently sees Asia as a major growth market with China having the largest draw due to its huge population. Apple will look to boost sales and develop its brand by having promotions to match key dates in the Asian calendar.
