Does Apple have a Boxing day sale?

in line with this sale day this week, does anyone know if Apple ever has Boxing day or Boxing week sales?

I might be in NYC over the holidays, back to SoHo we shall go!

I'm not 100% sure - but I think Boxing Day Sales are a Canadian thing. The U.S. Market traditionally have their 'Big Sales' on the day after the U.S. Thanksgiving or Black Friday.

Apple Canada is participating in a One Day Sale on November 25th - but I would be surprised if they also participated in Boxing Day Sales.

The have After-XMas sales in the US but 90% of Americans have never heard of "Boxing Day"; the ones that have (Detroit and Buffalo residents, for example) think it originated with something vaguely to do with sport, not returning gifts, and certainly it's not a paid holiday by law there.

Boxing Day is originally a British tradition that we've adopted here. Look to see it in Commonwealth countries.

Boxing Day sales in Canada are just an excuse for Future Shop to raise their prices on Christmas Eve and then "lower" them on the 26th.

Profit margins are so seemingly low (and/or retailers increasingly greedy) that there's never any good savings passed on to the consumer anymore.
