Deals: HomePod for $299.99, iPhone SE Free With AT&T Next, and New MacRumors Exclusive RAVPower Sale

by

Well-known accessory company RAVPower has launched a new series of promo codes this week, available exclusively to MacRumors readers. This crop of codes includes savings on fast wireless charging mats, portable chargers, and car chargers, all of which we've listed below. If you find something you like be sure to make your purchase before the codes expire in one month, on Sunday, September 2 at 11:59 p.m. PT.

Note: MacRumors is an affiliate partner with some of these vendors. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.

Note: It appears that Amazon will occasionally default the seller option to a third-party and not Sunvalley Brands (RAVPower's parent company). To ensure that the codes work, double check that the displayed seller is Sunvalley Brands, and if it isn't then click the "Used & New" button at the top of the product page, find Sunvalley Brands, and then click Add to Cart.

In other deals, Costco today kicked off a notable sale for its members on Apple's HomePod smart speaker, marking the device down to $299.99 in White and Space Gray, from a regular price of $349.99. While HomePod has been available at a cheaper price point thanks to sitewide sales at eBay and other retailers, this is one of the lowest straight discounts for a new version of the smart speaker we've seen, particularly compared to its current full retail price at places like Best Buy and Walmart.


At AT&T, customers can get the iPhone SE 32GB for free when they buy the smartphone on AT&T Next and add a new line of service onto their plan. AT&T says this is a limited-time offer and is not available for customers upgrading from an existing smartphone. Head over to AT&T to find out more information on the offer before it expires.

As the new school year approaches, more companies are opening up back-to-school sales for customers and today the latest addition to this list is Brydge. Under this sale, users can get the Brydge 9.7 for iPad at $99.99, down from $129.99, and the Brydge 7.9 for iPad mini at $39.99, down from $99.99. Check out Brydge's back-to-school sale page for the full list of discounted items, also including portable batteries, cases, and more.


Lastly, Best Buy has a nice deal of the day going on today for anyone looking to add another Bluetooth speaker into their home, with the retailer marking down the Beats Pill+ to $113.99, compared to its $129.99 price tag at places like Target and Walmart.

Anyone who is interested in jumping into the Alexa ecosystem -- or add more products to their existing set-up -- should also take a look at Best Buy's 2-day Amazon sale, with savings on Echo Show ($129.99, down from $229.99), 2nd-Gen Echo ($69.99, down from $99.99), Fire TV Cube ($89.99, down from $119.99), and more.

Head over to our full Deals Roundup for more of this week's ongoing sales and discounts.

$299 is a good price for the HomePod but I still don’t feel like I need one. If they were $150 I would probably pick one up just for the hell of it sort of how I bought the Series 1 watch for $229 last year. Still a good deal for those that want one. Costco always has small discounts on iPads and Apple TVs. I believe iTunes cards as well.

Last code doesn’t work for the 26800 USB C charger. and I ensured I had Sunvalley Brands. Are you sure that last code is correct?

The USB-C battery code is not working. Thanks!

The code RUMORSPB067 seems to be working for that - just matching the coupon code to the model number.

iPhone SE is a horrible deal compared to previous AT&T BOGO Next deals that offered a free current-generation phone for a value up to $650.

Damn, it’s sucks the HomePod isn’t available on through Costco via Google Express. There’s a 25% off Google Express code with no restrictions from T-Mobile Tuesdays next week. That would drop the price to $225.

$299 is still $100 more then one should pay for the HomePod. I’m a huge Apple fan. But for $299 I can get 2 Sonos ones.
