Black Friday

From Mac Guides

Jump to: navigation, search

In the U.S., the day after Thanksgiving is called "Black Friday", which is historically one of the busiest shopping days of the year. Over the past several years, Apple has participated with one-day specials at both their retail Apple stores as well as the online Apple Store. Historically, the discounts have been very modest, but it is notably the only time during the year that Apple holds a sale.
