Apple Offering Discounts on HomePod to Apple Music Subscribers

Apple this morning began offering promo codes to Apple Music subscribers that allow them to buy a HomePod at a discounted price for a limited time, in a holiday-themed promotion.

As of writing, customers in the UK have received codes for £50 off a new HomePod, bringing the price down to £269, with the offer available until December 16.


The discount is being offered via an email from Apple that includes a button-style link to 'Get Your Promo Code', which sends customers to the official Apple website with the promotional offer applied.

HomePod brings out the best in Apple Music. To celebrate the holidays, we're giving only Apple Music subscribers £50 off HomePod now through December 16. Claim your special promo code now.

The £50 discount narrowly beats the price of HomePod from John Lewis and Currys PC World, both of which are currently selling Apple's smart speaker for £279.

As yet, it's not clear whether Apple intends to extend similar discounts to other regions, but we'll update this article as soon as we hear anything.

(Thanks, Luke and Mark!)

Anything over $150 for this product is a scam

I want to like this product but I just feel it's not smart enough to warrant its existence.

This thing is a huge fail. And it’s not because it’s a bad speaker. It’s simply because apple has no clue how to make Siri smarter. It’s crazy how all the money in the world can’t make you better in the AI space. What bothers me the most is Apples arrogance. They actually thought people would buy this speaker at a higher price point in a time when their competitors were selling equivalent hardware with better software.

Still too high. For most people listening to music on an Echo is more than acceptable..

Some people like high quality speakers.

Its almost as if Apple has priced itself out of the market hmmmm. iPhone XR needs more marketing to sell them, and HomePods need a price drop to sell them when there are superior products on the market which lost less than the discount being offered.

Now please extend this to every other Apple product.

Exactly. I laugh at people who buy “quality” sound equipment. I use knock-off earbuds from the dollar store and it’s just as good as those ugly over-the-ear headphones. Guess people love to waste money.

Or you're just too cheap to buy better quality stuff.
