Apple To Hold 'Red Friday' Shopping Event In Celebration Of Chinese New Year
Apple has announced that it's set to hold a one-day shopping event in a number of countries in Asia in celebration of Chinese New Year. The event is scheduled on Friday, Jan. 25, just over a couple of weeks ahead of the beginning of the festival on Feb. 10. Dubbed "Red Friday" for its similarities to Black Friday in the U.S., the event brings discounts on various items on certain Apple online stores and retail shops in Asia. As with last year's Red Friday sale, customers in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand can avail of numerous special offers, most of which qualify for free shipping. This year, customers in China and Hong Kong can also take advantage of discounts through the official Apple Store app and at Apple retail stores. Earlier this month, Apple released Chinese New Year gift guides for its customers in Asia. Also earlier this month, another Asia-specific shopping event saw Apple fans in Japan receiving discounted products in pre-sealed packages called Lucky Bags.
