What were the best Black Friday Apple Watch deals in 2019?
The Apple Watch Series 3 promotions popped up frequently. Walmart offered one of the biggest bargains. Here’s a quick recap:
- Walmart sold the Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS) 38mm for $129 (was $199). Amazon and Target offered the same model for $169.99.
- Best Buy took up to $300 off the Apple Watch Series 4.
How to decide if it’s worth it
Black Friday is one of the few times a year you can find widespread discounts on Apple products. That said, retailer sales usually feature older Apple Watch models. So if you’re set on a new Apple Watch Series 6 or Apple Watch SE, price cuts can be harder to come by.
Fitbit brand activity trackers and smartwatches also go on sale during Black Friday and can be affordable alternatives to explore.
How to budget for an Apple Watch
The ideal budget allows you to cover your needs, many of your wants (Apple Watch included) and savings for the future. Start by looking at your monthly take-home income, then make a plan for how you’ll spread that amount across each spending category. You can use the 50/30/20 budget as a guide.
