Apple products are rarely on sale, but for Black Friday 2022, the offers are plentiful. RetailMeNot shopping expert Kristin McGrath tells Yahoo that retailers like Walmart, Amazon, Target and Best Buy are likely offering their lowest Apple prices of the year and are even dropping the new Apple Watch Series 8 (we found it for $50 off). If you need a new iPhone, we’ve found models that are $100 off. It’s definitely time for AirPods (they’re down to $80 – it’s 50% off!!), AirPods Pro too – they’re reduced by nearly $50 on Amazon. Let’s get to the point. It’s competitive out there, folks!

“I can’t express how much I love these headphones. I have been looking for wireless noise canceling headphones for YEARS and have bought so many pairs; these are by far my favorite. I would even say they are life changing.

Does every store have Black Friday sales?
Not all stores have Black Friday sales, but many do. This includes major retailers like Amazon, Walmart, Target, Kohl’s, Best Buy, Lowe’s, Home Depot, and more.
When is Black Friday?
Black Friday is Friday November 25th. It’s the day after Thanksgiving, and it’s historically a great time to score next-level deals on a range of must-have items.
Does Black Friday have deals on everything?
Do not Everything it’s on sale for Black Friday, but a lot of it is. You’ll see impressive discounts on items like air fryers, TVs, vacuum cleaners, furniture, sneakers, clothes, electric toothbrushes, makeup, and so much more. If there’s an item you’ve been waiting to go on sale, it’s most likely going to be discounted during the Black Friday season.
Will inflation impact Black Friday this year?
Consumers spent nearly $9 billion on Black Friday last year, just slightly less than the previous year, showing that economic volatility triggered by the pandemic most likely impacted spending habits. Experts say it’s unclear how inflation will affect Black Friday behavior this year, but they have their own theories.
“According to our survey, 70% of shoppers are factoring in inflation this year,” McGrath confirms. That means people aren’t necessarily waiting for Black Friday itself to maximize savings, and instead “start their holiday shopping earlier than ever in an effort to spread out cash flow,” Gall adds.
To meet this demand, major retailers are already launching major “pre-sale” events leading up to Black Friday. “Distributing their purchases will help prevent [consumers’] budget to be a hit all at once,” notes Ramhold. A possible caveat? “If the starting prices are higher, it means [potentially] higher prices when all is said and done.
