Target has launched a selection of its Black Friday sales early, yielding season low prices on some of Apple’s hottest products when you take into account free gift cards and REDcard savings (extra 5%). The two biggies are:
Apple Watch Sport starts at $349 and comes with a free $100 Target Gift Card. Use your REDcard to save an additional 5% and your effective net cost is just $231.55. That’s the lowest price we’ve seen on new Apple Watches. Target will throw in the free gift card on any in-stock Apple Watch.
Also, Target is including a free $80 Gift Card with iPad Mini 2 (prices start at $269). Again, taking into account the free gift card and REDcard savings, your effective price is just $175.55 shipped. Walmart still offers it for $199 outright if you don’t want to deal with the gift card.

Storing movies and photos can quickly fill up your Macbook. One easy cure is the HyperDrive, which lets you slot up to 128GB of extra storage into your Apple machine. Right now, it is $20 shipped via 9to5Toys Specials. MicroSD storage starts at a few bucks for small amounts and goes up to $18 for 64GB, $40 for 128GB or $75 for 200GB
Taking advantage of the SD card slot in the side of modern Macbooks, the HyperDrive can take pretty much any MicroSD, MicroSDHC, or MicroSDXC card. You simply slot in whatever capacity you wish to add, and start using it as a flash drive. Class 10 cards are supported, so you can enjoy transfer speeds of up to 95MB per second, while the Hyperdrive’s compact design means it does not protrude. It also features an aluminum cap so as to blend in with the look of your laptop, and there is a tiny groove on the surface for easy removal. There are two models available — one for the 13-inch Macbook Pro and 13-inch Macbook Air, and the other made for the 15-inch Macbook Pro.
You can currently pick up the HyperDrive for 33% off the regular price with free shipping.

Imagine if you could use your Guitar Hero instrument to shred — that is pretty much what the Jamstik lets you do, but with real strings and MIDI compatibility. 9to5Toys Specials has it now for $150 shipped.
You play this smart guitar with exactly the same technique as you would employ on an acoustic instrument, with a fingerboard for chords, and space to strum the strings below. By hooking up the Jamstik to your iOS device or Mac, you can convert every pluck into whatever sound you please, and edit the notes after you record your performance. The smart guitar itself is compact and durable, with volume controls on the side. It also has an infrared sensor, which allows you to visualize your hand movements on screen — a great tool if you’re learning to play. The internal battery lasts for eight hours of music making, and there are three Jamstik apps to download as a starting point.
You can grab the Jamstik at 40% off the regular price, with free shipping to the Continental US, plus a strap and two picks in the box.
