  • Black Friday is coming soon, but some Apple device deals are already popping up in early Black Friday deals. 
  • We're seeing early deals for iPhones, AirPods, iPads, Apple Watches, and even the latest Mac Mini running on Apple's new M1 chip.
  • Most notable are the $250 AirPods Pro wireless noise cancelling earbuds, which can be had for a great deal now on Woot ($190) and will get an even better deal from Walmart closer to Black Friday ($169)

Black Friday is close approaching, and that means early Black Friday deals. More specifically, it also means early Black Friday deals for Apple devices — some of the most expensive and coveted tech devices on the market.

Apple devices don't usually get Black Friday deals from Apple itself, but stores that sell Apple devices like Walmart, Target, Amazon, and Best Buy often offer Apple devices likes AirPods, Apple Watches, iPads, Mac computers, and iPhones with discounts during big sale events, like Black Friday and Cyber Monday. 

Notable is the AirPods Pro. Woot is currently selling Apple's wireless noise cancelling earbuds for the lowest we've seen so far, but Walmart will soon sell them for even less at $169, which is incredible for one of the best accessories you can get if you're in the Apple ecosystem.

Apple rarely offers its own deals on Black Friday, but in years past it's offered gift cards when purchasing select products. Last year, for example, Apple's promotion included gift cards up to $200 on select purchases. Apple has not yet said whether it plans to offer a similar deal in 2020. But, last year it made the announcement on November 25, so we may hear more about upcoming gift card promotions in the coming days.

Should I buy from Amazon, Target, Best Buy, or Walmart?

Many of these retailers offer very similar deals on products like the AirPods and the Apple Watch, which means you'll have a couple of options should one retailer go out of stock. In instances where multiple retailers offer the same product at the same price, consider which retailer is most convenient for you in terms of shipping options. If you have an Amazon Prime membership and want to get the product as fast as possible, it might make more sense to purchase through Amazon. But, if you'd rather pick up the item at your nearby Target or Best Buy, you should consider ordering from your preferred brick-and-mortar retailer. 

Do these stores offer curbside pickup?

Yes, Target, Best Buy, and Walmart all offer curbside pickup. But, you should check with your local retailer since the rules may vary by location and items purchased. Walmart, for example, says that not all stores offer curbside pickup for Black Friday deals.
