Apple products are awesome, but everything people say about the “Apple Tax” is true. If you want the best, you better be prepared to pay. That said, buying from one of Apple’s official retail partners instead of directly from Apple is never a bad idea. For example, you’ll pay $159 if you walk into an Apple store right now and buy the company’s popular AirPods 2 true wireless earbuds. If you get them on Amazon instead, you’ll only pay $139.
Before you pull the trigger on that great deal though, there are two other deals that you really should consider.
First and foremost, Apple’s wildly popular AirPods Pro are back in stock on Amazon after having sold out earlier this week. What’s more, they’re back down to Black Friday’s all-time low price! It’s nuts that Amazon continues to offer deep discounts on Apple’s beloved wireless noise cancelling earphones, especially considering the fact that no other retailer is discounting them right now. These are by far the best headphones Apple has ever made, offering great sound quality and impressive noise cancellation in a form factor that everyone loves.
If you don’t already own a pair of AirPods Pro, now is definitely the time to get them — they’re currently in stock and shipping immediately, but that will definitely change soon. Just remember that once shipping estimates start to slip, you should still order them to lock in the discount. Even when they’re listed as “out of stock,” our readers report that they still ship within a week or two.
If you don’t want to spend quite that much cash on earphones and you don’t need ANC, there’s one last deal you should check out. You know the AirPods 2 with Wireless Charging Case that typically cost $199? If you hurry over to Amazon right now, you can pick up a pair renewed for just $119. That’s a massive $80 discount compared to buying them new, and it’s the lowest price we’ve ever seen.
While these are indeed renewed AirPods 2, they’re guaranteed to “work and look like new.” That’s an Amazon guarantee mind you, not a guarantee from a third-party seller. If for any reason you’re not happy with your purchase, you have a full 90 days to return it for an Amazon credit or a full refund. It might not come in its original packaging, but all renewed AirPods 2 models have been thoroughly inspected by suppliers that have been vetted by Amazon. And with that 90-day guarantee, you’ve got nothing to lose and $80 to gain.
