Apple posts 'Merry Monday' shopping deals
If Black Friday got its name as the day retailers’ balance sheets get in the black (and out of the red), then Cyber Monday must be the day they get to…nope, I got nothing. Whatever you want to call the day that Internet holiday shopping supposedly kicks off, Apple has given you a few more reasons to join the fray.
The company has shifted its Black Friday discounts from the Mac, iPod, and iPad to third-party accessories. The Beats Solo HD headphones by Monster and Dr. Dre, for example, are currently on offer for $180, and the G-Technology Mobile Hard Drive is $90—each a 10 percent savings over the item’s usual pricing.
Whether you’re on the prowl for holiday gifts, or just something for yourself, Apple’s offering deals on a number of accessories for its products, among them discounted speakers, iPad and iPhone cases, handheld video cameras, and a plug-and-play keyboard for use with GarageBand. The company’s free shipping deal for orders of more than $50 is also in place for the shopping season.
