Apple shipping discount
Following in the wake of its one-day Black Friday sale, Apple has posted another single-day special at the online Apple Store. For the duration of Monday only, all products at the store should be eligible for free shipping, regardless of expense. The deal is also not exclusive to the US, and applies to stores such as the ones in Canada, France and the United Kingdom.
Apple has received some flak for its Black Friday specials, which while consistent with previous years, are said to have been too low for the poor economic climate. Particular concern comes from Kaufman Bros. analyst Shaw Wu, who argues that the company could have fallen back on its $25 billion in net cash to move more products during the busiest shopping day of the year.
