Black Friday is approaching fast and Apple has begun posting colorful banners all around its web store enticing potential deal seekers to pay them a visit on November 23.

A typically-American sales tradition, Black Friday has all retailers offering massive discounts each year, Apple being no exception to the rule.

Numerous countries around the world have adopted the annual sales event, with more jumping on the Black Friday bandwagon each year.

“Get ready to give. Shop online or visit your favourite Apple Retail Store. We’ll help you make the most of the day, no matter how you shop,” Apple says on a newly-launched web page in Australia.

The shopping event prices are yet to be announced.

Available solely through 23 November (from 2:01 a.m.) to 24 November (1:59 a.m.), the sales will apply to products like the iPad, the iPod line, and Macintosh computers.

The iPhone will not be featured in Apple’s Black Friday sales offer, if history is any indication.

Apple stresses that promotional pricing cannot be combined with any other offers, while sale prices are limited to the available stock. The One Day Sale discount prices will not be available to distributors, dealers or resellers.

Apple’s guide is already up and running, with the Mac maker encouraging customers to either shop online, visit a physical store, or buy everything from the iPhone app.

Customers can expect Apple to shave off just a few bucks on its premium offerings. iPad minis selling for $329 / €329 will probably not go below the $299 / €299 mark.

iPod touch 5th generation players which currently go for $299.00 (with 32GB of storage) will probably be discounted roughly $20 / €20.

We’ll keep an eye out for when the prices are actually disclosed. In the meanwhile, leave a comment and tell us if you’re excited about Black Friday.
