Kohl’s will be offering one of the best deals on an Apple Watch Series 2 model. There’s no discount, but the store is planning on offering $105 in Kohl’s cash to customers who make a purchase on Black Friday. Kohl’s doesn’t yet carry the Apple Watch 2, so stock may be limited, making it a good idea to call your local retail store before heading out.
Most Kohl’s stores will open at 6:00 p.m. local time on Thursday, November 24, but opening times do vary by location.
Series 1 Apple Watches can be purchased from $198 from Target, a discount of $71.99 off of the regular $270 price tag.
Mac deals are few and far between this year, but Best Buy is offering some solid discounts on the MacBook Air. Best Buy is discounting both 13-inch MacBook Air models by $200, both of which feature an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM, and 128 or 256GB of storage.
