Black Friday means incredible deals, especially in the electronics category. The retail-oriented holiday is so popular with shoppers that even brands that you typically can’t find on sale usually are, and in the electronics category, that brand is Apple. Apple, made popular for manufacturing the iPhone, iPad, and iPod, will be featured at unheard of markdowns in a variety of retailers. But, how can you guarantee you are finding the best price? That’s where we come in. We have scoured the web looking for the best deals on Apple products this Black Friday. With information sourced from BFAdScan.net, where you can preview and print Black Friday ads, and iDigital times, we present our opinion of the best deals on Apple products this Black Friday.

†We offer personal loans starting at $1,000 with a maximum up to $25,000, depending on your state of residence. Loans between $1,500 and $15,000 may be funded online. Loans less than $1,500 or greater than $15,000 are funded through our branch network.

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. As a result, under our customer identification program, we must ask for your name, street address, mailing address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver’s license or other identifying documents.

*The process uses a “soft” credit inquiry to determine whether a loan offer is available, which does not impact your credit score. If you continue with the application process online and accept a loan offer, or are referred to a branch and continue your application there, we will pull your credit report and credit score again using a “hard” credit inquiry. This “hard” credit inquiry may impact your credit score.
