The best price on AirPods is $129 right now

It's not the lowest price ever, but serves as a reminder to never buy AirPods at full price.

Apple AirPods are admittedly overpriced -- you can get true-wireless earbuds that give AirPods a run for their money for, well, a lot less money. But there's no denying that AirPods are a great product, and there's no shame in wanting them rather than a more generic model. We'd actively discourage you from spending $160 on them, though, since they're on sale so frequently. Case in point: Right now you can get Apple AirPods with the wired charging case for $129 at Amazon. That's the lowest price we could find right now, and it's at about $10 less than most other retailers. If that deal doesn't last, you can get AirPods for the same $129 at Staples, too. 

And remember that you don't have to pay Apple's crazy premium to get a wireless charging case. You can get a third-party wireless charging case for your AirPods for as little as $20.
