Micro Center Stores Offering AirPods With Wireless Charging Case for $150 as Limited Time Doorbuster Deal

by

Micro Center is having a notable doorbuster-style deal on the second-generation AirPods with a wireless charging case, offering them for $149.99, down from Apple's regular price of $199. This is the lowest price we've ever seen.

The catch is that the deal is only available at Micro Center retail stores, likely to draw in foot traffic, although orders can be reserved online for in-store pickup. The Apple Authorized Reseller has only 25 locations across the United States, so be sure to check if there is a location in your area.

Micro Center is also offering the wireless charging case by itself for $49.99, down from Apple's regular price of $79, and the second-generation AirPods with a standard charging case for $129.99, down from $159.

The deals are limited to one per household, and supplies are likely extremely limited, so we recommend calling ahead if you are planning on visiting a Micro Center store. There's no indication when the sales end, so act fast.

This does not surprise me at all. Microcenter is one of my favorite tech stores. Knowledgeable staff that don't harass, good regular pricing, and awesome sales.

Our Costco sells them for $144.99

Costco sells the wired charging case version for $144.99, but this deal from micro center is for the wireless charging case version.

Still too overpriced by about $50. Apple’s regular price is absurd. They’re earbuds. lol!

I've had my airpods going on two years and they have lived in my pocket daily for that entire time. My brother's pair even survived going through the washing machine. Do you think any of the other options on the market could do that? I haven't found any that can.

The price is justified by the fact that they are so small that I ALWAYS have them with me and they are high enough quality that I ALWAYS have them with me.

Still nearly the cheapest brand outside of no name Chinese knockoffs. When they came on the market were clearly the cheapest. Apple may be pricey but in this market they went very competitive.

Very nice. I almost bought these from MC a few days ago when they were $10 more. I'm glad I saw this post and saved $50 on a bday gift for the wife!
