Best Buy today has Apple's HomePod on sale for $299.99 in both White and Space Gray, representing $50 in savings for the smart home speaker. While it's been possible to get HomePod for even cheaper thanks to offers like eBay's occasional 20 percent off coupons, straight discounts on brand new models have been a bit more rare, making this a good opportunity to add HomePod to your home if you've been on the fence.

Although PayPal's Digital Gifts eBay store had a better deal on App Store and iTunes Cards this weekend, it's now expired, leaving Best Buy and Target's BOGO 20 percent offers as the best around for iTunes credit savings.

I grabbed one of the open box-excellent ones for $264 because I also had rewards. Excited to try out stereo when I get home tonight.

I'd buy the HomePod if it was $149, lol.
That is nice, Apple should just take a loss on the item for you? I believe the hardware cost is $265 and that is before software, shipping, etc...

Why is Best Buy discounting the HomePod? Are these factory seconds, or refurbished, or open box? Thanks.
Nope, they're brand new HomePods. The open boxes are selling even lower at $275.99. Based upon the sales reports we've seen, it's likely that Best Buy is discounting them because they aren't selling that well at $349.

Sounds like a good discount.

Nonetheless, the ‘just works’ (and sounds amazing) nature of HomePod allows it to command full price; offer price just sweetens the deal.
