The Apple Black Friday 2013 Sale is underway on the Australian Apple Store. The Apple Black Friday 2013 deals are indeed as rumored gift card bundle deals. This is a totally new Apple Black Friday sale we look at here. Yesterday we carried a rumor report that Apple will not offer discounts this year, but gift card bundle deals.

The new Apple Black Friday 2013 Deals are not that bad and the good thing about the Apple Black Friday sale is that the supply is basically unlimited online at the Apple Store. As the Australian Dollar exchange rate is almost 1:1 to the US Dollar I expect the same gift card bundle deals in the US Black Friday 2013 Sale.
The new Apple Black Friday gift card deals are quite an improvement over the last year's low discounts. The $75 iPad Air discount is notably close to what Apple Resellers offer on Black Friday, but still not matching it. Reseller though sell out and do not offer all variants with the gift cards or discounts in the range of $100 in the case of the iPad and $200 in the case of the Apple Macbooks.
