Apple usually doesn’t offer discounts on its products, so this Black Friday, look for iPhone 7 deals from secondary retailers. We’ll add more deals as they appear.

Best Buy

Purchase a 256GB iPhone 7 from Best Buy and you’ll be eligible to receive a $250 Best Buy gift card. Retail price for the 256GB iPhone 7 is listed at $1,069.99.

If you opt for an iPhone with less storage, like the 32GB or 128GB versions, you’re still eligible for a gift card, just in a lesser amount.

You’ll need service from VerizonSprint or AT&T, and you must pay off the phone through your carrier’s monthly installment financing plan, likely for 24 months. Offer valid Nov. 24-26.


Wal-Mart’s Black Friday deals include a $250 gift card when you buy any Apple phone, including the iPhone 7. Again, you’ll have to pay for the phone with a monthly installment plan from AT&T or Verizon, likely lasting 24 months. This deal may not be valid for the entirety of Black Friday weekend.


At Target, when you buy an iPhone 7 and activate it on Verizon, AT&T or Sprint, you’ll receive a $250 Target card. As with the previous deals, you’ll need to pay for the phone with a monthly financing plan, likely 24 months long. Offer may not be valid for the entire Black Friday weekend.
