The “Apple Shopping Event” to celebrate Black Friday and Cyber Monday is starting to kick off around the world. This annual Apple “event” offers a bonus Apple Gift Card when you purchase a qualifying product. It runs from November 25-28 and offers gift cards ranging from $25 to $250. As usual, however, there are far better deals to be had elsewhere, thanks to our friends at 9to5Toys.

Apple’s Black Friday shopping event starts on November 25 in your country and ends on November 28. You will receive a gift card for in-store and online orders. The gift card you will receive is universal, meaning it can be used at Apple Stores, Apple Online Store, App Store, for Apple services, etc.
