As it has done previously, Apple

kicked off a one-day sale

in Japan today to celebrate the start of a new year. Customers purchasing select iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, Apple TV, and Beats models online or at an Apple store will be eligible to receive a gift card valued between 3,000 and 24,000 yen.

Japan’s New Year’s sale is similar to an earlier promotion Apple held in the United States and elsewhere around the world leading up to this past holiday season. A

four-day shopping event

was held beginning on Black Friday and offered gift cards on similar purchases.

Apple first offered a one-day New Year’s sale in Japan

in 2017

after discontinuing the former “

Lucky Bag

” promotion, a popular deal that offered a random assortment of Apple products and accessories at a reduced price. It’s worth noting that today’s sale offers don’t apply to Apple’s latest iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch models. Here’s a full list of the products covered under the promotion and their gift card values:

iPhone 8, 8 Plus, 7, 7 Plus:

6,000 yen

iPad Pro (10.5-inch), iPad (9.7-inch), iPad mini 4:

12,000 yen

MacBook Pro, MacBook, MacBook Air (old model), iMac, iMac Pro, Mac Pro:

24,000 yen

Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS or cellular):

6,000 yen

Apple TV and Apple TV 4K:

3,000 yen

Beats Studio 3 Wireless, Beats Solo 3 Wireless, Powerbeats 3 Wireless:

6,000 yen

In the U.S., Apple is celebrating the start of 2019 with an

App Store story

promoting apps to help you keep your New Year’s resolutions. On Twitter, Angela Ahrendts congratulated Apple’s retail team:
