Deals: AirPods for $140, BOGO 20% Off iTunes Gift Cards, and New Anker Flash Sale

by

Costco today kicked off a new "5 Days of Deals" event just for its members, and one of the discounts is for Apple's AirPods. Today only Costco members can purchase the headphones for $139.99, down from $159.99 -- one of the best deals online for a new pair when compared to retailers like Adorama and Best Buy. Free shipping is also available.

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.

Costco has a few other sales going on this week, with a members-only savings event that includes the 2018 9.7-inch iPad (128GB) for $359.99, down from $399.99. There are also savings on the Google Home mini, LG TV sets, and more, so be sure to visit Costco to check out all of the discounts before the sale ends.

In other deals, Target this week has App Store and iTunes gift cards on sale with its traditional buy one, get one 20 percent off discount. While not as good as the more common 15 percent discounts for a single card, this is one of the only online iTunes gift card sales going on right now, so it could be a good opportunity to add some credit to your iTunes account.


The offer is valid on $15, $25, $50, and $100 iTunes cards, which will be delivered via email. The 20 percent discount will be applied to the lower priced item, so multiple price tiers can be added at once, and after two cards are placed in your cart you'll notice the discount. As usual, Target REDcard members can save an additional 5 percent in the sale.

We've rounded up a few examples of the savings you can net with Target's new offer below:

  • 2x $15 iTunes gift cards: $27, down from $30
  • 2x $25 iTunes gift cards: $45, down from $50
  • 2x $50 iTunes gift cards: $90, down from $100

Anker has a one-day-sale of its own today on Amazon, with up to 30 percent off car chargers, Lightning cables, and portable battery packs. Check out all of the items on sale in the list below (no codes are needed), and if you're interested make sure to get your purchase in before the day ends:

Over at Best Buy, the company is celebrating its anniversary with an all-new savings event that includes markdowns on 4K TV sets, Bluetooth headphones, video games, and more. The new event isn't particularly focused on Apple products, but Best Buy is providing up to $300 in savings on select iPhone X activations. Check out this deal and more in the list below:

I did this. I got 2 $100 cards online from them for $171 with my target card. Email delivery.

Not sure if Costco still has it, but last week I bought $100 iTunes for $85 in the warehouse. It was a pack of 4 $25 cards -- 15% off.
