Apple has slashed prices on all products across the world including the UAE on the occasion of Black Friday even as online retailers take the concept beyond US shores.
Almost all major online retailers in the UAE are offering attractive deals on the occasion of Black Friday a day following Thanksgiving and traditionally observed in the US retailers to increase their fourth quarter and year-end sales.
Online buyers on the UAE Apple store can avail discounts of more than Dh500 on products ranging from the new iPad Air to all types of Macs and related products.
An iPad Air can be purchased today for Dh1,748 discounted by almost Dh151, while discounts reach unto a maximum of Dh401 on MacBook Pro and Air.
It is special this time as Apple usually does not offer discounts on its products and not often do we see Black Friday discounts offered here in the UAE. However, there are no discounts offered on either the iPhone 5S 5C or the new Mac Pro.
With the online retail trend catching up in various developing markets, the Black Friday offers have moved beyond the US market. Shoppers in the UAE can avail discounts of up to Dh2,000 during the next two days.
Amazon is offering about 25 to 65 per cent discount on a range of products. An Xbox 360, 250 GB E Console is being sold for $190 almost Dh700. UAE-based Jado Pado, too, has launched its own Black Friday deals here offering discounts ranging from Dh200 to up to Dh2,000.
The sale is expected to last until December 2. Log onto Souq.com and you can get discounts ranging from 30 per cent on laptops to almost 50 per cent on digital cameras.
