Apple Announces One Day Sale in Asia for Lunar New Year

Some are dubbing Apple’s Lunar New Year Sale the “Red Friday” sale since the event is the Asian equivalent of the American shopping tradition of Black Friday, intended to bring out shoppers celebrating the Lunar New Year in Asian countries.


Available to those shopping in China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand, the January 10 sale will give users sales on iPads, iPhones, Macs, and other Apple Accessories. Exact discounts are unknown at this time, but shoppers should not expect a high savings. On Black Friday last year, American shoppers actually received gift cards, redeemable for more Apple goods, rather than discounts.

Apple also has a calendar of store events through the New Year, so if you’re located in Asia or if you’re traveling in Asia and can’t get enough of Apple, it might be worth checking out.
