We are fast approaching that time of year when we traditionally give and receive gifts to friends and family, or even treat ourselves. The big day is less than five weeks away and today we have news that Apple will be holding a one day sale across the world this coming Friday.
The company has started to put teaser pages on its online stores for what it calls the “one-day shopping event”, which according to an article on AppleInsider is to take place around the world this Friday. Unfortunately there are no details currently of what deals are to be had in what is normally the busiest time of year for the retail trade.

In the US the sale coincides with Black Friday that is normally the biggest shopping day of the year in the country. Apple is saying though that consumers will discover “amazing iPad, iPod and Mac gifts” for the one day sale. The teaser page in question has surfaced on the company’s online stores in Australia, Italy, and the US and UK stores.
Last year there were some small savings to be had with $101 knocked off the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and iMac. We also saw $41 knocked off the iPad with the iPad getting a $21 discount, while the iPod Nano saw $11 dropped from the price.
There were also some small deals to be had on accessories such as the Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpads among other items. Hopefully given the current state of the world economy Apple might offer consumers bigger discount this year, but it’s not as if their products are not selling well despite that.
Previously other retailers have offered lower prices on Apple products during the holiday season, and in the coming days we may see some nice discounts to be had. Are you planning on taking advantage of the one day sale by Apple?
