Apple has officially launched its Black Friday promotions in the United States. As usual, the company isn’t offering straight cash discounts on any of its products, but rather rewarding customers with an Apple Store gift card with select purchases.

You can get up to a $150 gift card with your purchase, but that hardly compares to deals we’re seeing elsewhere. We’re also seeing significant accessory deals across the web

Apple has never been one to go all-out with Black Friday discounts and this year is no different. You can score a solid gift card with your purchase, but we highly recommend you go to another retailer for the cash discounts. Here’s what Apple is offering this year:

  • Apple Watch Series 1 w/ Sport Band – $25 gift card
  • iPhone 7, iPhone 6S, iPhone SE – $50 gift card
  • iPad, iPad Pro, iPad mini 4 – $100 gift card
  • MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac, Mac Pro – $150 gift card

If those deals don’t excite you – as they shouldn’t – have no fear. The folks over at 9to5Toys have been rounding up the best Apple deals this Black Friday and you can score some major discounts on the latest and greatest devices. Check them all out in our full Black Friday Apple roundup right here.

In addition to its Black Friday promotion, Apple continues to tout its 2017 holiday gift guide featuring popular accessories and toys. Here are some of our favorites:
