Apple launches Boxing Week iTunes sale w/ discounted albums in Canada & UK

As it does every year, Apple has officially kicked off its iTunes Boxing Week sale with discounts on select albums for this week only.

The sale, which both UK and Canadian users will find under a special section in the iTunes store on both iOS and Mac, will likely remain available through the end of the week. While “Boxing Day” is officially recognized in Canada and elsewhere on the 26th, retailers usually offer a Black Friday-type event for Boxing Day with most sales lasting the entire week following Dec. 25.

For Boxing Day this year, Apple is offering a long-list of popular albums, normally $9.99, starting at just $6.99 in Canada. There are other albums on offer for $7.99 as well. The deals are grouped into four sections including Hot in 2015, Essential Albums, Musique Francophone, and Discovery Artists.

On the UK iTunes store Apple doesn’t use the “Boxing Day” branding, but it is also offering popular albums from £3.99 in a special section on iTunes starting this week.

Check out the iTunes Boxing Day sale in Canada and the UK sale now. And you might want to grab some discounted iTunes gift cards first.

Update (11/26 11:50pm): All of the below deals are now live on Amazon

We just got the down low on Amazon’s headliner Black Friday deals which begin tonight at midnight Pacific time. Headlining the bunch will be the Kindle Fire HD 6 which is $20 off yielding a price of $79 shipped.  That’s the lowest price by far on any name brand tablet from a reputable manufacturer/retailer. It features a fast quad-core processor, front and rear-facing cameras, five colors options and a 6-inch 1280×800 display.

Note that you can save an additional $40 if you buy the $99 Prime with purchase (no brainer if you don’t already have it).

While Black Friday is clearly one of the biggest shopping holidays in the US, Boxing Day tends to offer even deeper sales north of the border for Canadians. But over the past few years more and more Canadian retailers are adopting the popular American tradition, and this year is no exception.

Like in the U.S, major retailers are offering week long deals leading right up to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon, Target and Future Shop, among others, have already launched early pre-Black Friday sales. Others, like Canadian Tire, will be kicking off deals starting on the 27th and running them through the weekend.

We will also see a 50-inch Vizio smart HDTV under $500 and PC laptop discounts. Many of Best Buy’s Black Friday deals are set to begin at 11:59pm on November 27th.

Walmart is already offering discounts across pretty much every product category from HDTVs and headphones to home goods, tools, toys and much more. Walmart is also expected to have some of the best gaming deals around come Friday including a PlayStation 4 with The Last of Us and a $75 Walmart Gift Card for $449.99 ($525 value) and the Xbox One with Assassin’s Creed Unity, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and a $50 Walmart Gift Card for $349 ($450 value). There will also be PS4 and Xbox One games starting at $24.99 including Watch Dogs, The Evil Within, Titanfall and more. Deals kick off midnight on November 28th.
