Black Friday andhave passed, but not all the AirPods deals have gone by the wayside. Black Friday saw some of the best prices ever on the — $170 — and they promptly sold out at vendors like Walmart and Amazon. However, we’re still seeing them for $199 at Staples; that’s $50 off, and still pretty good. If you want the standard AirPods, they’re no longer at their all-time low price of $99, but you can still snag them for $130. And you can get the standard AirPods bundled with the wireless charging case for $160, or a $39 savings, over the Apple Store.
See the current best deals below, but note that pricing and inventory has been fluctuating wildly.
AirPods pricing 2020
|Model||Apple Store price||Best price right now||Best all-time price|
|AirPods with wireless charging case||$199||$160||$140|
As of last Wednesday, Walmart lowered the AirPods Pro price to $169 — and promptly went out of stock. Amazon has effectively matched that ($170), but it’s out of stock there, too. They’re currently at $199 at Staples — which is still $50 under the regular Apple Store price — but at least they’re in stock.

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. That specific deal has expired for now, but the AirPods are holding at $130 at Best Buy.

Personally, I would get either 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 $160, which is a $39 savings versus the Apple Store price.
