Like previous years, rather than discounting their items like the majority of retailers over the four-day period, Apple is offering Apple Store gift cards which can be used against the cost of future purchases from Apple. Unfortunately, if you’re searching for actual cash savings then you’ll have to turn to one of Apple’s authorised resellers.
Online the terms and conditions for the offer note that there is a limit of two Apple Store gift cards per eligible product category, such as the Mac. Refurbished products do not qualify.
