Last week, Amazon made the announcement that it would stop restocking most items deemed nonessential so that it could free up space in its warehouses and free up shipping capacity for medical supplies and other essential items that people might need while the novel coronavirus continues to spread across the United States. Now, we have yet to see any essentials appear back in stock on Amazon at this point, but shipments of many nonessential products are now seeing delays of one month or more.
Amazon’s temporary new policy is fine, of course. In fact, it’s even commendable, or it will be once we start seeing essential products appear back in stock. That said, many people are cooped up in their homes right now as cities and states across the country lock down in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. There are plenty of things we want and need while we spend all that time indoors that might not be deemed “essential,” and we’re running out of ways to get them without leaving the house and potentially exposing ourselves to the new coronavirus.
Thankfully, there are still some deals on popular nonessential items that are shipping right away. For example, you’ll find Apple AirPods 2 and AirPods Pro in stock and shipping immediately today, and the former is back down to the lowest price ever. Those deals are great for listening to music, podcasts, and audiobooks on your own, but what about all the other people in your family? Don’t worry, Amazon has them covered too.
There are still four terrific deals available right now on Bose wireless speakers at Amazon, and they’re all still shipping immediately so you can have one in your hands by the end of the week. The star of the show is likely the best-selling Bose SoundLink Color Bluetooth Speaker II, which is down to $99 from $130 in four different colors.
If you want to spend even less money, you’ll find the Bose SoundLink Micro Portable Outdoor Speaker on sale for just $79, down from $100.
Those of you looking for even better sound quality and 360-degree projection will find two other deals that are just what the doctor ordered. The Bose SoundLink Revolve Portable Bluetooth Speaker is $40 off at $159 right now, and the Bose SoundLink Revolve+ is $60 off, dropping the price from $299 to $239. That’s a killer deal.
Any or all of these deals could sell out at any moment, of course, and you shouldn’t expect to see them back in stock until late April at the earliest. In other words, now is the time to order one if you don’t want to risk missing out.
