Apple has Black Friday deals for you this year, and they’re finally available in America and other markets — we first got wind of the sale from Apple’s Australia and New Zealand stores. Before you whip out your credit card though, you should know that Apple’s sales won’t get you the best savings on Apple gear this Black Friday.

DEAL ALERT: The best Black Friday sale of the year is happening right now!

You should also know that Apple’s best products aren’t included in Apple’s sale promo. So if you’re looking for a cheaper iPhone 7, 2016 MacBook Pro laptop, or second-generation Apple Watch, Apple.com isn’t the right place to shop.

So, what is Apple offering you on Black Friday? Gift cards of various amounts, depending what you’re buying. That means you still have to pay full price for Apple’s gadgets, and then you’ll get gift cards that you have to spend later in Apple stores.

Here are Apple’s promotions for Black Friday 2016:

  • Up to $50 Apple Gift Card when you order iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, or iPhone 6s and pay in full
  • Up to $100 Apple Gift Card when you buy selected iPad models (iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4)
  • $25 Apple Gift Card for Apple Watch Series 1 purchase
  • $150 Apple Gift Card for select Mac computers (offer does not include 2016 MacBook Pro models)
  • $25 Apple Gift Card for Apple TV purchase
