Black Friday (2021) at Apple: last chance for great MediaMarkt action

Apple users are used to higher prices and speculate most of all on massive discounts on iPhone, iPad, Mac and Co. on Black Friday. But are they really available from the manufacturer or should you look elsewhere? It’s already worth taking a look at MediaMarkt, but the promotion will soon be over – so be quick!

Update from November 18, 2021: Buyers can only get a few hours from the Benefit “Apple Week” at MediaMarkt (view at MediaMarkt) – the promotion only runs today. The retailer is already anticipating Black Friday. Many Apple products are cheaper. A small excerpt:

Original article:

When will Black Friday 2021 take place?

First we will clarify the question: When does Black Friday start? This time it falls fourth Friday in November on November 26th, 2021. Although this date marks the actual “Black Friday”, retailers and manufacturers have long interpreted this quite loosely. Accordingly, you have to expect offers in advance and also afterwards. In short: The hot phase will start on November 15th at the latest and should last until December 5th. Ergo: Please don’t just focus on November 26th, otherwise you could miss out on hot deals.

What’s up at Apple and retailers on Black Friday?

Apple itself is one of the pioneers of the so-called “Black Friday” in Germany, after all, this beautiful, original American tradition was brought across the pond and started in 2006 with the discount battle in this country for the first time. In the meantime, however, the manufacturer is rather cautious and in the last few years only added gift cards to the hardware and held back with direct discounts.

But there are still the dealers. They are much more generous and are more likely to hit real bargains. You will probably be able to save on established and readily available products. New and scarce goods, on the other hand, will probably not be discounted. For example, we are already making the following offers at Amazon:

Which products could be discounted?

But what’s even cheaper on Black Friday? With a bit of luck, we will receive smaller discounts for the iPhone 13 mini, as it is relatively readily available. But we wouldn’t expect any discounts on the normal iPhone 13 or even on the Pro models. The same applies to the new MacBook Pro. All these products are extremely poorly available, neither Apple nor the dealers are interested in selling them at a lower price at the moment. If we had to guess, we’d expect discounts on the following Apple products:

  • iPad Air
  • iPad Pro
  • MacBook Air and MacBook Pro (2020 models)
  • iMac 27 inch (old Intel version)
  • Mac mini
  • iPhone 12, 11 and SE
  • Apple Watch Series 3 und SE

So if you want to save on Apple products on Black Friday, you have to be willing to compromise. If you speculate on the latest products, you get nothing, Older devices, on the other hand, will be found cheaper, especially in the free trade. At Apple itself, on the other hand, shopping is not really worthwhile.
