Deals: Best Buy Discounts HomePod and Apple Watch Series 3 GPS by $50

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.

Best Buy also has $50 off Apple Watch Series 3 today, with 38mm Aluminum down to $279.00 and 42mm Aluminum down to $309.00. A few other Best Buy deals on Apple products are listed below:
  • Verizon iPhone - Buy a select iPhone and get one free with qualifying Verizon activation
  • iPad mini - Save $100 / as low as $299.99 for 128GB
  • MacBook Pro - Save up to $250 / as low as $1,499.99 with Student Deals
  • 21.5-inch iMac - Latest model, 3.4 GHz, 8GB, 1TB for $1,299.99, down from $1,499.99
  • 27-inch iMac - Latest model, 3.8 GHz, 8GB, 2TB for $2,099.99, down from $2,299.99
  • iTunes gift cards - Buy one, save 20 percent on another
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. With deals like this, the more you spend the more you can save, so buying two $100 cards will cost $180, two $50 cards will cost $90, and two $25 cards will cost $45.

Those beginning to buy gifts before Father's Day this weekend also have a few options to choose from today. Notable accessory companies like Twelve South and Pad & Quill have debuted sales for Father's Day, which we've listed below:
  • Twelve South - Save on iPhone cases, iPad cases, charging docks, and more in Twelve South's Father's Day Gift Guide 2018

  • Pad & Quill - Save 15 percent on all wallets

  • Braven - Get 20 percent off sitewide with code LOVEDAD

  • B&H Photo - Save on a variety of Apple products like the 2018 iPad ($30 off), Late 2016 MacBook Pro ($800 off), Cellular Stainless Steel Apple Watch Series 3 ($50 off), and more

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...

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.

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.

I'm going to go with it being part of their Fathers Day promo.

Why is Best Buy discounting the HomePod? Are these factory seconds, or refurbished, or open box? Thanks.

Nope. Those aren't Father's Day Promos. If you go to Best Buy's site, you'll find all of the products under bog standard Best Buy sales. Best Buy has constant Apple product sales. Nothing special here.

The Apple Watch 3 GPS is really tempting (I'm still rocking the original launch day Apple Watch!), but I just realized that the deal doesn't include Cellular. :(

Is Apple expected to release an Apple Watch 4 this year?

Even $199 would be in the ballpark for me.
