Best Buy and Target have posted their annual Black Friday sales previews. The two retailers have published a number of deals they will be offering up to hordes of holiday shoppers on the popular after-Thanksgiving-day shopping weekend.

Target will be hosting quite a few deals on Apple products, providing gift cards of up to $100 for iPad purchases. Best Buy also plans to offer $100 discounts on select iPad models, and has a slew of other Apple product promos planned as well.

Specifically, Target will offer an $80 gift card for original iPad mini purchases, $100 gift card to those purchasing an iPad mini 2, mini 3 or iPad Air, and $140 for the iPad Air 2. So essentially, you could snag a 16GB iPad Air 2 for around $350.

Additionally, the store will have $30 gift cards for qualifying iPhone 5s and 6 purchases, and $50 cards for the 32GB iPod touch. It’s also shaving $11 off the Apple TV, offering a bogo deal on iTunes gift cards, and discounting select Beats headsets.

Here’s a list of some of Best Buy’s deals via 9to5Mac:

  • iPhone 6: $99.99 with the trade of any iPhone
  • $75 off all iPad mini 3 models
  • $100 off all iPad Air 2 models
  • Beats Solo HD On-Ear Headphones: $79.99
  • 11.6-inch MacBook Air: $779.99

Of course, Best Buy will also be taking at least $100 off several Mac and MacBook computers, and discounting a significant amount of its inventory. The retailer is perhaps one of the most popular places for holiday shoppers in search of gadgets.

Black Friday falls on November 28th this year, and runs through the weekend—though it’s customary for stores to offer their best ‘doorbuster’ deals early Friday morning. We expect to see many more Black Friday ads popup in the coming weeks.

    • karol

      Yes, solo beats hd comes with 10-year contract. Good news iPhone doesnt.

      • Eni

        So i can give them my iphone 5 and 100$ and take an iphone 6? off contract

      • karol

        only if you give them iPhone 7s…

      • Eni

        lol

      • George

        No it’s on contract and a rip off, the iPhone 5 sells for $230 on eBay.

      • Jason Baroni

        Never forget the 2 years contract MacBook Air.

      • Eni

        i selected that by mistake lol

      • Jason Baroni

        I know, just kidding

    • ✯Mike✯

      If any iPhone is available for purchase at that low of a price, then obviously it’s a contract. New they’re over $500. Good try

  • Mr.Coolfreak

    Definitely buying an iPad Air 2 from Best Buy, can’t beat 100 dollars off!

    • mike

      Looks like Target gives you $140 off.

      • Mr.Coolfreak

        No they give you a 140 dollar gift card

      • vivalaivsca

        you could buy it at target then return it and use the gift card to buy it again.

      • TwinSon

        Don’t think it works that way. But who knows.

      • Mr.Coolfreak

        That would probably work but they only are doing that for 16GB iPad Air 2

      • mike

        Essentially the same for me, $40 more than what Best Buy gives.

  • Mr.Coolfreak

    I can get these deals online or only in store?

  • TwinSon

    Was hoping they would throw us a bone on those Wireless Powerbeats2.

  • mike

    Got the iPad Air from Target last year at $100 off, (at $399), first iPad I’ve owned. I plan to trade it to Gazelle for $200, and then purchase the iPad Air 2 from Target at $359.

    Net cost for iPad Air > iPad Air 2 upgrade: $159.

    • George

      You plan to sell an iPad air for $200????? Those go for over 300 on eBay, don’t get ripped off by stupid gaZelle.

      • mike

        Seriously? I’ll have to check it out. Tried selling my iPhone 5 on eBay to get top dollar towards the 6, but it just didn’t sell at above $200. Gazelle gave me $185.

      • Blip dude

        I sold a Jailbroken 32GB iPad Air for $416 and sold a 32GB iPhone 5 for $260 Jailbroken and Unlocked. You should seriously consider Jailbreaking them, it adds so much more value.

      • mike

        I have both my iPad Air and my iPhone 6 jailbroken. As I was driving home from work, it occurred to me that I may as well sell it freshly restored and jailbroken on eBay to see what I can get. Does $300 sound like too much for 16gb wifi?

      • RubberDuckZilla

        You could have got a lot more money for that unlocked iPhone.

      • mike

        Update: The iPad Air sold for $290 on Craigslist within 24 hours of my listing it. Buyer had me jailbreak it, and I told him the ins and outs of how it worked, (he seemed a tad uninformed). So thanks much for the heads up.

      • George

        iPhone 6 4.7 sells for 800$ lol

      • mike

        Interesting, thanks for the heads up. Will consider.

      • mike

        Sold the iPad Air within 24 hours on Craigslist for $290.

      • George

        Told ya gazelle is a rip off 🙂

      • mike

        Hahah I had no clue the fish were biting that easily!

    • Jacob Linnehan

      Would you be interested in selling your air to me for $200?

  • Gary le

    Does the 3gs qualify for $100 gift towards the 6?

    • RubberDuckZilla

      I was wondering the same. It does say “any iPhone.”

  • Yub

    Do the other iPad Air 2 (64gb, 128gb) come with the $140 target giftcard too?

  • SoylentGreen

    Target, is that the same target that had there point of sales terminals hijacked by russian sourced malware that was sending the lot to the motherland for atleast five years before being discovered earlier this year?
