Current-gen iPad Pro models for $499 (10.5″) and $650 (12.9″); current-gen 9.7″ iPad for $204; 128GB iPad mini 4 for $329

Don’t expect any of these deals to appear at the Apple Store. Resellers will offer the best discounts.

Last year Best Buy, Target, Walmart, Verizon, T-Mobile, MacMall, Sam’s Club, Kohl’s, and Groupon were the top places to find deals.

In some cases, the sales will begin a week before Black Friday and run through Cyber Monday; you’ll find the best deals on Black Friday itself.

Want more details on how, what, where, and when to buy Apple deals this Black Friday? Then check out our full analysis below.

The iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X all debuted recently, and this generation of handsets is Apple’s most expensive yet. That said, your “cheapest” option is surely the iPhone 8, which is priced from $699 for the 64GB model. Shortly after Apple’s announcement, T-Mobile said it would briefly charge $0 down for the base model, with the phone’s cost spread out across a 24-month installment plan in $29 increments.

for the base model, with the phone’s cost spread out across a 24-month installment plan in $29 increments.

The iPhone 8’s higher price point might be a bit of a downer, but shoppers can expect at least a little something to soften the blow this Black Friday. Last year Best Buy, Target, and Sam’s Club all offered the iPhone 7 with gift cards of up to $250. (Target and Sam’s Club offered $250 with all models, while Best Buy tiered the freebie according to the storage of the phone you bought.) Assuming this deal is repeated with the iPhone 8 in 2017, then that’s like getting $250 off your purchase.

Alternatively, if you have a recent smartphone in good condition, then you might be able to score a stellar trade-in deal. Last year, both T-Mobile and Verizon offered the iPhone 7 for free when trading in select, paid-off smartphones and committing to a 2-year contract. That was, by far, the best offer we saw on the newest iPhone, and we wouldn’t be surprised if at least the renegade “uncarrier” T-Mobile repeated the promotion with the iPhone 8.

There’s also the possibility that we’ll see the unlocked iPhone 8 at a slight discount. Last year, the iPhone 7 was marked $39 to $79 off on eBay. At the iPhone 8’s higher price, we might see that discount increase proportionally up to $84 off, but that’s still a small discount overall. If you don’t need an unlocked phone, then the aforementioned discounts are much better.

Finally, it should be noted that straight-up discounts on the iPhone 8 are likely to be more numerous and possibly better in December, as was the case last year with the iPhone 7. So if a trade-in offer doesn’t apply to you, and you don’t care about gift cards, then you might want to skip Black Friday.

Sadly, discounts on the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X are much less likely to show up this Black Friday season. While the 8 Plus will probably be eligible for trade-in offers, the high-end X may be exempted from even those offers. If you’re in the market for this fancy handset, we recommend that you wait.

When it comes to the iPhone 7 — which now retails from $549 — we’re anticipating a few possibilities this year. Verizon could offer it for $1 with a 2-year contract, like it did the 6s last year. T-Mobile might offer a similar discount after some hefty bill credits, like it did with the SE. Alternatively, we could see retailers drop the monthly installment price, for a cumulative savings of up to $160.

Also be on the lookout for another prepaid iPhone deal from Walmart; the store offered the 5s for $99 on its Straight Talk Wireless plan last year, which means the SE or 6s could see a similar offer this year.

And finally, shoppers who don’t mind second-hand tech will be in luck this Black Friday! The most common iPhone deal we saw last year was for refurbished handsets. This year we could easily see the SE dip under $200 as a refurb.

In June, Apple introduced new 10.5″ and 12.9″ iPad Pros (priced from $649 and $799, respectively). In March before that, Apple introduced an upgraded 9.7″ iPad, which starts at $329. All of these models — in addition to the 7.9″ 128GB iPad mini 4 (which starts at $399) — will see sharp discounts this Black Friday.

Last year, Target and MacMall both had great deals on the then-current iPad Pro. Target sold the entry-level 9.7″ iPad Pro for $449 (a $150 discount), and MacMall dropped the price of the 12.9″ model by as much as $149.

both had great deals on the then-current iPad Pro. Target sold the entry-level 9.7″ iPad Pro for $449 (a $150 discount), and MacMall dropped the price of the 12.9″ model by as much as $149.

This year, we’re predicting that the new 10.5″ and 12.9″ Pros could see the same $150 drops, bringing them down to $499 and $650, respectively. If those prices are too high, then look for stores to knock $125 off the new 9.7″ iPad, dropping it to $204. We also expect to see the 128GB iPad mini 4 for $329, or $70 off.

Recently Apple announced the Apple Watch Series 3, and in the process it discontinued the Apple Watch Series 2 . This means we could end up seeing especially good discounts on both the Series 2 and Series 1 this year.

. This means we could end up seeing especially good discounts on both the Series 2 and Series 1 this year.

The last time we saw a situation similar to this was when the iPad 3 was discontinued — iPad 2 models fell by $60 to $160 that Black Friday. This could mean realistically seeing the Series 1 drop to around $189 this holiday season. If retailers are feeling particularly generous, it could go as low as $89 (but don’t count on it).

What does this mean for Series 2 prices? The iPad 3 was discontinued when the iPad 4 was announced in October 2012. That November, we saw deals for the iPad 3 that included various models bundled with gift cards, as well as a $50 discount in some cases. However, the most significant discounts actually fell in December that year.

If we see a repeat of this trend for the Series 2, that could mean prices could drop to new lows. Best Buy recently knocked the price to $229, and Black Friday should go even lower. There’s also a chance that holding out until December could mean even steeper discounts, with prices starting as low as $149.

Actual discounts on the newly minted Series 3 are pretty unlikely. When the Series 2 was new last year, the only Black Friday deal we saw was the full-price Watch bundled with $105 in Kohl’s Cash. Similar store credit bundles could pop up in 2017 for the Series 3.

Any first-generation Apple Watches still hanging around could be cheap refurbs. Granted, it’s the oldest Apple Watch, and has a slower processor; if you’re worried about functionality and speed, it might be best to skip this model. And you don’t have to shell out a ton of money for a high-end Apple smartwatch when there are more affordable options. Cheaper models should go as low as $20 for Black Friday, while non-Apple (but still name brand) smartwatches could go for $85.

Apple introduced new iMacs and Mac notebooks at WWDC in June, so there are a bunch of different options to choose from.

Last year, B&H; Photo-Video and MacMall offered the best deals on Retina MacBooks: $100 to $450 off, according to MacRumors . 2016 models saw discounts of around $100 while models from the year before were $400 to $450 off. That means this year’s updated 12″ MacBook, which starts at $1,299, could go for $1,199 on Black Friday.

We’ll see similar discounts for Apple’s MacBook Pros. The latest 13″ Pro, which also starts at $1,299 , could drop to $1,199, while MacBook and Pro models from 2016 could see even bigger discounts. Meanwhile, the refreshed MacBook Air, which normally starts at $999, could drop to $799, matching last year’s best deals.

If a desktop is what you’re after, the 21.5″ and 27″ iMacs introduced this year, which normally start at $1,099 and $1,799, respectively, could drop to $899 and $1,599.

Apple deals can be in high demand, so it’s important to know when to shop. In some cases, the deals will begin a week before Black Friday and run through Cyber Monday. That said, iPad and iPhone deals are likely to be dangled by stores as doorbuster deals, which means they won’t last through the weekend. Shop early for these gadgets, and be attentive to specific release times if applicable.

If you miss the Thanksgiving / Black Friday rush, then you might have another opportunity to save when you head back to work Monday morning. Last year, Best Buy, Target, Walmart, T-Mobile, and eBay offered a few Apple promotions on Cyber Monday, but these deals were scanty compared to what we saw on Black Friday.

It’s no guarantee that Apple will even have a Black Friday promotion this year (they didn’t in 2015). That changed last year, but the Cupertino tech giant’s one-day Black Friday sale in 2016 was lackluster at best.

Last year, the company offered Apple gift cards ranging from $25 to $150 with the purchase of certain gadgets. You could get a $50 Apple gift card for the purchase of an iPhone SE or iPhone 6s, up to $100 for select iPad models, $25 for Apple Watch Series 1, $150 for select Mac computers, and $25 for Apple TVs. Shoppers had to pay for their gadget in full and could use the gift cards towards a future Apple purchase. Apple also didn’t include any of its newest devices in the sale.

Overall, it pays to skip the Apple Store. For new Macs, shop at eBay, MacMall, B&H; Photo-Video, and ExperCom. If you don’t mind buying a used Mac, you might want to check out Other World Computing, which had some good deals on pre-loved Mac mini, iMac, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air models last year, according to MacRumors .

When it comes to iPhones, carriers and big-box stores are your best friends. Both T-Mobile and Verizon offered those amazing trade-in deals last year. Meanwhile, look for Target, Best Buy, and Sam’s Club to resume their gift card promotions.

For iPads, look to Target and Best Buy for the most competitive offers. Walmart and eBay could also drop some impressive discounts, too.

We’ve rounded up some of the hottest eBay deals as this year’s sales season gets underway, so read on for massive savings, discounts and offers on a variety of gadgets and tech products.

With Christmas just around the corner, retailers have launched huge sales to entice customers with heavy wallets. If you know where to look, you can save huge amounts of cash – and we know where to look.

Side note you might not have considered, but you can collect Nectar points by shopping through eBay. So if you have a Nectar card be sure to link your account as those points can be converted into vouchers for anything from shopping to experiences so they’re worth keeping in mind when deciding if you should pick eBay over another retailer.

Also don’t be too quick to disregard eBay thinking it’s all just used items. Lots of retailers now use eBay to sell brand new products, such as AO and Dyson, so you can often find new products cheaper on eBay compared to buying direct. It sounds crazy but it’s worth checking.

Also, check out these cracking quick-buy deals, which will save you loads of cash in the run-up to Christmas 2017:

Towards the bottom of this page, you’ll also find a helpful guide on how to source the very best eBay deals.

Fitbit’s excellent entry-level fitness tracker is now available for PS20 off, making it a great time to grab a fitness tracker bargain. The Flex 2 is water-resistant to 50m so you don’t have to take it off to shower, but it also does lap-counting so is a perfect swimming companion.

You can expect the usual fantastic Fitbit activity and sleep tracking and long battery life. With optional accessories you can dress the Flex 2 up or down depending on the occasion. There’s even a pedant accessory to wear it as jewellery.

The GoPro Hero5 Black Edition is probably the best GoPro camera available right now – and this is almost certainly the best price around.

eBay has knocked an additional PS29 off of the already-low PS289 price tag for a Certified Refurbished HERO5 Black starter pack that includes a brand new battery, adhesive mounts, and accessories – get one now for just PS260.

The camera itself is refurbished by GoPro itself, so this waterproof, 4K shooting camera is going to perform every bit as well as a brand new one.

A brand new HERO5 Black, by the way, costs PS400 RRP, so this is in effect a PS140 total saving on a product we gave a nearly perfect 9/10 review score.

Getting a discount on an Apple product is a rare thing, so we’re very excited by this huge saving on a premium iPhone model.

You can now purchase the 256GB version of the iPhone 7 in any colour for a bargain price of PS649, which is PS150 less than the usual price of PS799.

We gave the phone a 3.5/5 score in our review, praising the handset’s great screen and speakers, incredible performance, water-resistant design, and excellent camera.

Destiny 2 discs are still hot off the production line, so it’s great to see such a significant discount so soon after the game was released.

discs are still hot off the production line, so it’s great to see such a significant discount so soon after the game was released.

Beating rival retailers on price, eBay has Destiny 2 for the PlayStation 4 listed at an incredibly low price of PS20.99.

Making the deal even sweeter is the fact that the game earned a very high 4.5/5 score in our review, lauded for its compelling campaign and multiplayer experiences.

Fifa 18 isn’t out yet (due September 29, 2017), but you can already pre-order the game as part of this PS4 Pro (1TB) bundle for a bargain price of PS299.99.

Several retailers are selling the console alone for either the same price, or just PS10 less. So you’re definitely getting a solid deal with this purchase.

We gave the PS4 Pro a 4/5 score in our review, on account of the console’s stunning graphics, quietness while running, quick loading times for games, and visual enhancements to select titles.

Want a bargain? Of course you do. Need to clear all that, ahem, useful-to-someone-else stuff from the garage? Here’s how to work the socks off eBay, the world’s biggest auction site, whether you’re buying, selling, or just hunting for a great deal.

Buying and selling on eBay is a dark art. Get it right and it’s the best way to get rid of stuff, as well as somewhere to save some money off high street prices.

Get it wrong and you can get lumbered with buyers looking to manipulate the system for undue refunds, or end up embroiled in a product-returns system that’ll make you wish you’d just headed to PC World.

Here are some top eBay tips and tricks to help you get the best deal, whether you’re buying or selling.

Part of what makes eBay great is the convenience factor. It has stuff you won’t even find on Amazon, and quite a lot of it can be on your doorstep in a day or two. You can snag some mega-bargains if you trade away some of that special sauce, though.

We’re talking about local collection deals: bargain central. Money Saving Expert has even made a local deals app that lets you sift through eBay’s nearby wares to find a hot deal. This is a great way to buy bigger bits of tech, like TVs, if you can stomach the faff of having to pick it up yourself.

that lets you sift through eBay’s nearby wares to find a hot deal. This is a great way to buy bigger bits of tech, like TVs, if you can stomach the faff of having to pick it up yourself.

The classic tip for eBay bargain hunters is to look for listings that have fallen foul of a keyboard fumble: a typo. Unlike your phone, eBay doesn’t have a super-aggressive autocorrect function because you’re not exactly going to find many product names in the dictionary.

That means it’s ripe for misspellings. But which misspellings? This is the tricky bit: what to search for. The best bet is to search for product names without the manufacturer, in case that part has been misspelt, or to try the name with one letter switched over to the adjacent key.

There are also apps that’ll do this for you. Just type the keyword into an app like Fat Fingers (web, iOS and Android) or Typo Bay and they will search eBay for all the most likely borked variations.

When you think about it, there’s not much point in bidding until the very last moment. Get into a bidding war two days before the end of an auction and your rival is only going to get more invested in owning that Hello Kitty TV you think would look great in the spare bedroom.

It’s a good policy not to bid until right at the end of the auction, letting you get one over on any novice bidders. The idea is to make your bid so late that bidders don’t have time to re-bid. So make sure you’re logged in, make sure you have a good connection and have your maximum bid in mind beforehand.( Image credit )

Manually placing bids right at the end of auctions is either exciting or incredibly stressful, depending on your disposition. It can also lead to you either over-bidding or fumbling a bid if you don’t keep your cool. You can actually get online tools to automatically bid for you, though.

Sites like Gixen will place bids for you in the very last second of an auction: it’s a real pro-level tool. You may have heard this called ‘sniping’, and unless getting your hands dirty with the bidding process is part of the fun, sniping is really the only way to buy auction goods on eBay. Sniping apps are freely available too. Myibidder is another one of our favourites. ( Image credit )

eBay is no longer the Wild West market stall of the internet that it once was. However, you still need to make sure you know what you’re getting.

For example, just because an item is described as new, it doesn’t mean you’ll get a manufacturer warranty with it. Also, read the listing carefully to see whether accessories are included or not. If in doubt, ask the seller.

However, unless you’re flat-out at fault because you didn’t bother to look at the description, you’re covered. Pay with PayPal, and use the eBay Resolution Centre , and you’ll lose nothing but the time you put into the purchase.

If you see a popular piece of tech – an iPad Air 2 , say – selling at an unusually good price even though it’s new, it may well be a ‘grey import’. These are products imported from outside the EU, so you’ll often find there’s a US or EU plug in the box instead of a normal one.

, say – selling at an unusually good price even though it’s new, it may well be a ‘grey import’. These are products imported from outside the EU, so you’ll often find there’s a US or EU plug in the box instead of a normal one.

This doesn’t mean it’s a fake, or that you’re being conned. However, you do need to check out the manufacturer warranty conditions online. If that product doesn’t have a ‘worldwide’ warranty, you’re left relying on whatever warranty the seller offers. If any. And even if the seller has a 10,000 positive feedback rating, that doesn’t necessarily mean its warranty service is much cop.

That feedback is usually left a few days after an auction, not six months down the line when something has gone horribly wrong. ( Image credit )

Sellers beware: there are few more annoying things than seeing an item worth PS250 sell for 99p. This is a real possibility if you list something very niche as an auction without a reserve. Unless your listing finds a ‘critical mass’ of interested bidders, it’ll go nowhere.

You might want to think about listing items like this as Buy It Now purchases, which can be listed on eBay for up to 30 days. This gives your potential buyers much longer to find your actual item, and fall in love with the idea of owning the thing.

This is a good strategy for any niche tech brands that just aren’t searched for as often as, say, Samsung, as well as things like collectibles. Now that eBay offers a lot of free listing opportunities as standard, there’s not much to lose if you have the time to play with.

If you don’t own a gigantic estate car, it can seem like your dreams of snagging that bargain-tastic buyer-collects treadmill are over. However, don’t decide you need to get with the masses and take out a gym membership to use every other month.

Anyvan is a great service for bigger eBay purchases. You detail your courier needs on the site, then ‘man with a van’ types bid for your custom, generally ending up with a pretty favourable rate unless you’re looking to lug a sofa literally from one end of the country to another.

If you’re looking for something that’s going to cost you big-time, there’s a good chance you’ll be searching eBay for ages. Before bed. During your commute. On the toilet.

You can save a bit of time by saving searches in the eBay app, so you don’t have to type out the same terms over and over again. The app will even send you updates when new items appear under that term, if you fancy. To do this, just make a search in the mobile app, then press the ‘Follow’ button that’ll appear in the results page.

Leave the eBay app to do its thing and it’ll bleat out some very recognisable tones when you get any notifications. There’s a ‘buying’ one and a ‘selling’ one.

If you don’t fancy any of your eBay-loving co-workers asking exactly what you’re buying or selling as soon as the app pipes up, you can customise these tones. There’s a whole bunch of the things in the app. Just go to Settings > Notifications > Customise Sound.

If you’re an eBay cynic, someone who thinks it’s rammed full of dodgy sellers and sub-market, stall-soiled goods, it’s time for a re-visit. eBay Deals is where you’ll find the latest special offers from some of eBay’s biggest sellers. These include high street shops like Argos.

It’s all new gear, too; not just whatever these shops have found down the back of the sofa. eBay Deals was part of an attempt to clean up the eBay image back in the old days, and purchases come with guarantees just as they would in a shop. It’s like buying on the high street without the faff.

Fancy a bit of cheeky high street eBay price checking? You don’t have to tap away in the search bar while the HMV store manager looks on disapprovingly.

Instead, you can just scan a barcode using the camera within the eBay mobile app and it’ll show the listings for that item in a second. All you have to do is tap the search button, then the barcode-like icon to the right of the search bar.
