While Apple Store customers in the U.S. can look forward to gift cards on selected purchases on Black Friday, it seems European customers may be missing out. Apple last year offered its European customers discounted pricing rather than gift cards, but rumors – including from the usually reliable MacG – say that there will be neither cards nor discounts this year … 


While Apple’s U.S. site shows the gift card offer, the European sites we’ve checked refer only to the donations Apple will make to Project (RED), with nothing about gift cards or discounts.

Don’t be too disappointed, however: the deals typically offered by Apple are usually less generous than those available elsewhere. US readers are advised to check out the Black Friday deals we’ve spotted so far, with more over at 9to5Toys. In the UK, Amazon is going to be the place to look.

Update: Confirmed
