Guess who’s coming to the Black Friday discount party. Apple, that’s right, and not just through third-party retailers like Walmart, Target or Best Buy this time around.

The actual online US Apple Store will apparently participate in the special “one-day shopping” festivities on November 25, alongside brick and mortar locations too, some of which may even offer “extended” shopping hours.

The fastest way to get in on the looming iDeals is obviously the dedicated Apple Store app, and in-stock items ordered by 5:00 pm shall qualify for free two-day delivery. Alas, that’s all we know about Cupertino’s Black Friday comeback, but recalling other such sales from a few years ago isn’t exactly a major enthusiasm booster.

Gift cards and Apple Music subscription freebies are probably the best you can hope to receive, along with trivial markdowns on old and/or unpopular devices like Apple TVs, the Apple Watch Series 1, iPhone 6s or SE, iPad mini 2 or Air 2, and previous-generation Mac gear.

Still, it’s definitely worth keeping an eye on Apple Stores come Friday, and if we’re right to expect overall disappointing special offers, there’s always Best Buy or Walmart to fall back on. The former has already revealed it’ll be selling the iPhone 7 with up to $250 coupons on Verizon, AT&T or Sprint installment plans, also letting you save a decent $125 on all iPad Air 2 models.

Meanwhile, Walmart is cooking up $250 gift card giveaways for all iPhones, $70 iPad mini 2 discounts, and a sweet $100 iPhone 5s Straight Talk doorbuster.
