As part of its ongoing spring sale event, Best Buy today has discounted Apple's HomePod by $20, bringing the cost of the smart speaker to $329.99, down from $349.99. The speaker is available in both White and Space Gray. While not a massive discount, this is one of the first straight price drops on HomePod since its launch earlier this year, outside of sitewide promo codes on eBay.

My HomePod is fabulous. I will buy another once stereo pairing is enabled. It is worth every cent. Siri works well for me and I love how the device can hear me no matter how much the volume is cranked up.

Surely a discount of any amount on anything is worthwhile… Unless you’re one of those types who’s keen to throw money around?
I like discounts. But, I have to wonder if this will inspire anyone to purchase it, which is the entire point of a discount from the point of view of the business. My guess is that anyone willing to pay $330 for this device is willing to pay $350.

Whereas if it were lowered to $200, let's say, it would induce quite a few people to buy it, not just because they would think it was worth it, but because they would look at the discount and really think it was a good deal (which is different from thinking it is worth it).

But a $20 discount, while nice for anyone making a purchase, is, in my opinion, a laughable inducement for people to purchase (i.e. it won't induce anyone to buy it who wasn't already planning on purchasing it).

Me: “Hey Siri, lower the price of the HomePod to something reasonable, closer to the price of the intellectually superior Echo.”

Siri: “I’m sorry, I can’t do that right now.”
