Walmart has has offeredas part of its ongoing sale. However, things go fast on Black Friday and they're now displaying as out of stock. Don't be disheartened -- it may be that more stock arrives over the weekend. Amazon matched the price, but it's now displaying as $199, a saving of $50 off the standard retail price. Prefer the baseline AirPods? They're currently selling for $119. That's up from their recent $99 sale price, but better than the Apple Store price of $159.
Our advice? Seek out the AirPods Pro at $190 or less, and the standard AirPods at $120 or under. If they're not at those prices now, wait for those deals to return.
While Walmart's $169 deal was great, it quickly sold out. Amazon's saving is still decent though if you're keen to put Apple's best headphones in your ears. Read our AirPods Pro review.
Walmart came in strong to the early Black Friday sale game by marking down the AirPods to $99 -- the lowest price ever. That was matched by Amazon and (with membership) at Costco and Sam's Club. The deal has expired for now, but we'd expect it to return later in the season. Read our AirPods review.
Personally, I would either get the cheaper AirPods or the AirPods Pro. But if you're really a zealot for wireless charging, know that you can get the standard AirPods with a wireless charging case for $150, which is a $49 savings versus the Apple Store price.
