    Apple tends not to offer its products at discounted prices during Black Friday, preferring instead to offer gift cards. However, this has not stopped other retailers from discounting Apple Watch models during previous Black Friday events, and with this in mind we anticipate a repeat performance this November.

    If you are not too fussy about the series, you’ll get a better deal on previous years’ versions. The biggest saving we saw in 2020 was from Amazon, which cut the price of the Apple Watch Series 5 (2019 model) by an unprecedented £100.

    Last year’s Black Friday deals included the following:

    • Apple Watch Series 5 in Rose Gold (launched in Sep 2019) - £386 at Amazon, down from £499
    • Apple Watch Series 3 (launched in Sep 2017) - £189 at Very, down from £279
    • Apple Watch Series 5 - £429 (down from £489) at JD Williams
    • Apple Watch Series 5 Space Grey- £429 (down from £499) at Currys PC world

    In previous years, retailers have also offered cut price Apple Watches on Cyber Monday, so might be worth waiting if you can.

    Important: Don't allow yourself to get caught up in the Black Friday hype, and only ever buy what you need and can afford. Always do your own price comparisons to ensure you’ve found the best deal – don't just take a retailer's word for it.

  • In 2020, Apple* offered ‘free’ gift cards with the purchase of MacBook computers, iPads, iPhones, Airpods and Apple Watches between Black Friday (27 Nov) and Cyber Monday (30 Nov). However in 2019 it offered vouchers worth up to £160, so if this decreasing trend continues, there’s a chance this year’s deal could be less than £120.

    Is it worth it?

    Apple products tend to be cheaper when purchased from other outlets so you might be better off ignoring this offer and shopping elsewhere. However, it’s a bonus if you intend to buy direct from Apple anyway.

    Examples of Apple's Black Friday 2020 deals (last year’s prices):

    £20 gift card

    • AirPods with charging case, £159
    • Apple Watch Series 3, from £199 

    £40 gift card

    • Beats (selected models), from £129.95
    • Apple TV HD, £149

    £80 gift card

    • HomePod, £279
    • iPad Pro 11-inch, from £769

    £120 gift card

    • iMac 21.5-inch LED-backlit display, from £1,099
    • MacBook Pro 16-inch, from £2,399 

    Important: Don't allow yourself to get caught up in the Black Friday hype, and only ever buy what you need and can afford. Always do your own price comparisons to ensure you’ve found the best deal – don't just take a retailer's word for it.

Latest Expired Deals

  • Up to 10% off Macs and iPads for students, teachers, and parents of students

    Up to 10% off Macs and iPads for students, teachers, and parents of students

    Plus 'free' £159 AirPods with selected devices

    Expired

    Apple doesn’t offer widespread discounts and its products certainly aren't MoneySaving, but if a new Apple device is what you want, there is a way to take a bite out of the cost of Macs and iPads – up to 10% off the normal price.

    Officially, this education discount is geared towards university students and teachers, but even if you’re neither, you can still be smart and benefit from the offer as the broad eligibility criteria means loads of people can get it, including parents of students and education workers (see who it’s for below).

    What’s more, until Mon 11 Oct, you can grab an extra bonus to make the deal more fruitful... if you buy certain Mac or iPad models via the Apple and Education* website or at an Apple Store, you can get 'free' or discounted AirPods earphones that would normally cost £159-£249, depending on which ones you choose – see more on this below.

    Who's eligible and how do you get the discount?

    1. Students attending (or who've been accepted into) university – go to the Apple and Education* website. You’ll be asked to sign up (or log in) to discount scheme Unidays using your uni email address for verification. The education discounts will then be automatically applied.

    If you’re unable to sign up to Unidays or you don’t want to give it your data, you can call Apple on 0800 048 0408 and it’ll verify you with your ID or acceptance letter and you can continue your purchase over the phone. Alternatively, take the verification documents to an Apple Store (find your nearest).

    2. Teachers and education workers at all levels in any state or private education institute, eg, schools, colleges and universities (even if you work in the office and not the classroom) – visit an Apple Store and show proof of where you work such as a payslip or call 0800 048 0408. 

    3. Parents of current or newly accepted university students – visit an Apple Store and show your child's student ID or acceptance letter.

    Free AirPods earphones when buying a Mac or iPad 

    If you buy certain products through the Apple and Education scheme until Mon 11 Oct, you can get a discount of £159 on AirPods wireless earphones. If you just choose the most basic model of AirPods, the discount would mean you'd get these for free. 

    If you're buying the following products, you're eligible for the discount: 

    • iPad Air
    • iPad Pro
    • MacBook Air
    • MacBook Pro
    • Mac mini
    • iMac

    The table below shows you how much you'd then pay for each type of AirPods:

    AirPods Price Discount How much they'd cost you
    AirPods with Charging Case £159 £159 Free
    AirPods with Wireless Charging Case £199 £159 £40
    AirPods Pro £249 £159 £90


    Once you’ve selected an eligible Apple product, choose your AirPods (or opt to not receive AirPods at all) and this will be added to your 'bag'. If you don’t actually want the AirPods, you could sell them to make a bigger saving. See our guide on selling or trading in unwanted items.

    Of course, it's not worth buying a Mac or iPad just for the AirPods as much cheaper non-Apple alternatives are available, which could save you more than the cost of the AirPods at full-price.

    Which Apple products can you get up to 10% off?

    You can get up to 10% off Mac products and up to 8% off iPads. There isn’t a discount on iPhones and they aren't eligible for the AirPods offer.

    We did some number crunching on four student discount examples on Thu 22 Jul:

    Product Apple Education price Discount Next cheapest
    iPad Air 10.9-inch, 64GB, WiFi £535.20 (norm £579) 8% £539.97 at Amazon. £549 at Currys, John Lewis
    iPad Pro 11inch, 128GB, WiFi £711.60 (norm £749) 5% £733.97 at Amazon. £768 at AO.com
    Macbook Air 13-inch, 256GB £898.80 (norm £999) 10% £899 at John Lewis. £899.97 at Amazon
    Macbook Pro 13-inch, 256GB £1,168.80 (norm £1,299) 10% £1,149 at Amazon, Currys and John Lewis


    As you can see with the education discount, Apple is currently cheapest for most products, but not all – though we haven't factored in the added value of the 'free' AirPods. Prices are constantly changing so do your own checks and look out for discounts at other retailers.

    Not a student, teacher or other education worker?

    Provided you know someone who’s studying at uni or working at a school, college or uni, you can in theory get the discount if that person’s willing to go and buy the goods for you. As far as we can see, this isn’t a breach of the terms and conditions. Of course, you’ll have to decide whether it’s morally okay – as this is a scheme designed specifically for people in education.

    Don’t allow yourself to be taken in by the hype around Black Friday and be sucked into buying something you don’t need or can’t afford. Always do your own price comparisons to ensure you are getting the best deal possible – don’t just take a retailer’s word for it.
