Like its Black Friday shopping event held for those in the U.S. and other Western territories back in November, Apple is set to celebrate the Year of the Dragon with a shopping event on January 6 for customers in China/Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Philippines.
The company promises the one-day sale will provide “amazing iPad, iPod, and Mac gifts for everyone.”
The event will follow Apple’s recent “lucky bag” deals in Japan, which allowed customers to snap up a bag of mystery items, all heavily discounted, for around 33,000 Yen ($430). Customers queued outside Apple retail stores overnight to get their hands on a bag, some of which may have included “big ticket items” like an iPad 2 or a MacBook Air, according to Penn-Olson.
One lucky bag, pictured below, featured an 8GB iPod touch, a Porter bag, an iZon remote room monitor, a pair of Incase Reflex headphones, a Mophie Juice Pack, and more.
