Apple Black Friday 2016 Australia web screenshot 001

Apple has launched its Black Friday deals today in Australia and New Zealand through its online store and retail locations in both countries ahead of similar one-day deals scheduled to launch in other markets tomorrow. The one-day shopping event in Australia and New Zealand offers customers free Apple Store gift cards worth up to A$200 or NZ$215 with the purchase of certain products like select models of the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Mac and Apple TV.

The offers are available through Apple’s online and retail stores in both countries. Each customer is limited to two gift cards per product category.

Sadly, shoppers don’t get a free gift card if they buy one of Apple’s latest products, like the iPhone 7, Apple Watch Series 2 or the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.

Here’s a breakdown of what’s on offer in Australia:

  • A$35 gift card—Apple TV, Apple Watch Series 1 and iPhone SE
  • A$70 gift card— iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 4
  • A$140 gift card—9.7-inch iPad Pro and 12.9-inch iPad Pro
  • A$200 gift card—12-inch MacBook, 13-inch MacBook Pro without Touch Bar, previous-generation 15-inch MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iMac and Mac Pro.

Configure-to-order Mac models are also eligible for this promotion.
