Apple (NYSE: AAPL) hasn’t officially announced its Black Friday bargains on its website, but don’t wait around for them to do so.

If previous Black Friday deals are any indication of what you can expect, your best bet is to bypass the Apple store and buy from authorized resellers instead.

Here’s why…

Apple authorized sellers have historically offered discounts up to 13% lower than the Apple Store.

So, you can shop at the Apple Store and pay full price for the products and receive an Apple gift card, or you can enjoy some really great deals by other retailers.

You choose.

Don’t worry, you don’t have to scour around for the lowest prices—we’ve done the heavy lifting for you.
