Best Buy has begun advertising its upcoming Boxing Day sale in Canada, a holiday recognized by retailers in Canada, United Kingdom, and Australia where retailers typically discount products similar to Black Friday in the US. This year Best Buy will be offering deals on select Apple products, including savings on all MacBooks Pro and MacBook Air models, as well as iPad 2, 3, and 4. BestBuy hasn’t posted specific deals for those products, but it’s also advertising the iPhone 5 from $0 on the usual three-year contract. The best we’ve seen in the U.S. is around $126 through Fry’s and Walmart. The deal will be available through Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile Mall locations on December 26th, while the other deals will hit BestBuy.ca starting 6PM EST Dec. 24th (sale officially starts at 8PM EST). Best Buy’s FutureShop locations in Canada will be offering the same discounts.
Like last year, Apple is also advertising a Boxing Week sale for Canadians on the iTunes store. This year Apple has a selection of new albums from artists such as Coldplay, Pink, Mumford & Sons, Rihanna, Drake, Skrillex, and Justin Bieber starting at around $6.90. While Boxing Day is recognized as a holiday on December 26th in Canada, retailers usually hold Boxing Week sales from Dec. 24 through Jan. 2:
