Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales may be over for most of us — but lucky Apple fans in China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand and Taiwan can pick up a cut-price iPad Air, iPhone 5s or other devices thanks to the company’s annual Chinese New Year online sale.

The sale, which lasts for one day only, takes place January 10.

Based on previous years’ sales, expect discounts to rage from around 8 percent for iPad models up to 10 percent for the iPod touch. Apple will also offer free shipping — although this is already available in select counties like Singapore.

What better way to usher in the Year of the Horse than with a rare official Apple price reduction?
