Do you live in China, Taiwan, Thailand, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore or the Philippines? Do you find yourself jealous of Apple’s crazy Black Friday sales which you never get to enjoy? Well, Apple is thinking of you! On January 6, Apple will hold a “Red Friday” sale for the Lunar New Year. The sale will be held for one day only, and will feature “amazing iPad, iPod, and Mac gifts for everyone.”
Red Friday is similar to Black Friday in that you don’t get to know what the actual sales prices will be in advance. So if you’re in one of these countries, and you’re looking for an Apple bargain to start the Year of the Dragon, head over to your country’s Apple store on Friday, January 6, and see what kinds of deals you can find. On top of the obvious iPads and iPods, this might also include a range of accessories, gadgets and software.
Apple has been launching more and more promotions in the Asian market, and it seems that they’re trying to get this market on par with their booming success in North America and Europe.
What do you think? Will a special sale like this prompt you to buy Apple’s products for the first time?
