MacBook Air Black Friday
Does Apple have Black Friday deals on the MacBook Air?

Apple typically doesn’t offer Black Friday or Cyber Monday discounts on products like the MacBook Air, though some third-party retailers do. Just like in previous years, we’d expect Apple to keep its prices as high as usual for Black Friday 2022. 👎

💡 But we still have a few tricks for you to save money on a MacBook Air.

One option is to wait for Apple to release a new model of the product you want. Historically, the prices for older models start to drop as soon as a new one comes out. The older the model you choose is, the cheaper it will be. 

However, Apple tends to stop selling older models on its website and in stores shortly after releasing a new one. If you’re interested in buying anything other than the latest version, your best bet is to shop for a used and refurbished MacBook Air.

Where should you buy a MacBook Air on Black Friday?

Since you probably won’t find any discounts from Apple on Black Friday (or any other day of the year), you might be wondering where else to turn and whether it's still a good time to find low prices on the MacBook Air. The good news is that you have plenty of other options when shopping for Apple products. There are lots of places where you can buy a MacBook Air. Many online and offline retailers sell Apple products at lower prices at different times of the year.

While ads for Black Friday and Cyber Monday seem to tout big discounts, they’re usually not offering the lowest prices of the year. This is especially true when it comes to more expensive items such as laptops.

Of course, if you ask us, your best option is to buy a refurbished MacBook Air. Keep in mind that a refurbished MacBook is not the same as used. Used devices are often sold as-is, without any repair work or testing. On the other hand, refurbished devices have been professionally repaired and tested to make sure they work as well as new.

A refurbished MacBook Air will deliver all the same performance and convenient features as a new one, but at a much cheaper price. Buying refurbished devices is also more sustainable than buying new. So at the same time, you can feel good about doing something good for the environment, especially on a day like Black Friday which usually isn’t a planet-friendly day. 🌿

How much is a MacBook Air on Black Friday?

Let’s get down to the nitty gritty. Since you can find deals on refurbished laptops all year long, you don't have to wait for Black Friday or Cyber Monday sales to save money. There’s also no pressure to buy your MacBook Air during the seasonal sales, because these deals will always be here—shop whenever you’re ready.
