Grab Cheap iPod, PC With Amazon Black Friday Lightning Deals
Amazon kicked off its Black Friday lightning deals earlier this week, but the savings will continue throughout the day on items like iPods, laptops, hard drives, and more.
Lightning deals are sales that offer big discounts during a limited window of time – and often in restricted numbers – so be prepared to act fast. Amazon doesn’t reveal the Lightning price until the item goes on sale, but you can often save up to 50 percent or more.
Some of the electronics going on sale in the next 12 hours include Apple products like the iPod touch and iPod nano. Starting at 1:30 p.m. Pacific, Amazon will cut the price on a new 32GB iPod touch. It normally sells on Amazon for $289; Apple is offering it for $268 today as part of its own Black Friday deals – can Amazon best Cupertino on price? Check back later. Amazon will also offer a 16GB fourth-generation iPod touch starting at 12:30 p.m. Pacific and a 16GB iPod nano starting at 11:30 p.m. Pacific.
