Apple Teases Black Friday Sale

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Apple ( AAPL) Tuesday teased consumers with a promotional image on its Web site touting a Black Friday sale.

"Mark your calendar now, and come back to the Apple Online Store the day after Thanksgiving for the special one-day event," the site reads. "You'll discover amazing iPad, iPod, and Mac gifts for everyone on your list."

Apple's discounts on its products typically aren't as steep as its competitors.

For the past several years, the company has offered $101 off the iMac, MacBook Pro, and Macbook Air, as well as reductions on the iPod Touch, Apple TV and various accessories.

Apple didn't mention any sales in its brick-and-mortar stores.

According to reports, the company could open its largest store ever in Grand Central on Friday.

Apple has said it expects revenue of $37 billion during the December-ended quarter.

The iPad is expected be a large driver of growth for Apple during the holiday season and could sell 13 million units during the quarter, according to analyst estimates, despite competition from Amazon's ( AMZN) Kindle Fire.

Shares of Apple edged up 1.9% to $375.90 in early afternoon trading on Tuesday.
