But during the recent Black Friday season, the HomePod was available for $250. Guess what? That deal is back.
For a limited time, and while supplies last, Best Buy has the Apple HomePod smart speaker for $249.99 shipped (plus tax). You'll also get a three-month Apple Music trial subscription, a $30 value.
In case you're wondering, although Amazon has, the HomePod isn't among them -- so don't look for a price match there.
If you're not sure whether this is the smart speaker for you, read. I think it's one of the uglier products Apple has ever made, but that's just me.
