It’s pretty rare to find Apple products selling for anything other than full retail price, but the company plans to host a special “Black Friday” sale in its online and retail stores to kick off the holiday buying season. Though short on details, a teaser running on the vendor’s website promises “dozens of great iPod, iPhone and Mac gift ideas.”


In addition, Apple has internally announced that retail store employees can match prices of other authorized retailers, which is particularly interesting since Best Buy is already offering discounts of up to $150 off on current Macs. Apparently, price-matching has always been Apple's policy but it sounds like the company wanted to make it crystal clear to its staff ahead of the holiday season.
