Wednesday March 25, 2020 8:38 AM PDT by Mitchel Broussard

OWC has returned with a discount on a new HomePod this week, offering the White HomePod for $204.99 and the Space Gray HomePod for $207.99. This is the current best discount on a new HomePod ($91-$94 off), and the next best price you'll find is at Best Buy for $249.99.

If you're looking to purchase two HomePods to set up a stereo pair, you can save more money as well. Buying two White HomePods at once will knock $10 off the price of each speaker ($194.99/speaker), while buying two Space Gray HomePods will take $6 off each speaker ($201.99/speaker).

OWC's HomePods are new and come in non-retail packaging, meaning you'll receive them in a nondescript box instead of Apple's official packaging. These HomePods are covered under one year of OWC's Fulfilled Limited Warranty instead of Apple's warranty coverage.

Both colors of the HomePod are in stock and available to ship today. Free shipping is available with an estimated five to eight business days for the delivery, depending upon your location.

We track the best deals on HomePod every week, so be sure to bookmark our guide if you're on the hunt for solid HomePod discounts.

How quickly people jump to bizarre conclusions. OWC is a reputable company, in business for over 30 years. They're not going to do something that is illegal (ex: sell used product as new, sell stolen product, etc.) or that will anger Apple. For decades, it's been common for products to be sold as white box or OEM items in plain packaging. That's one possible scenario. Another is Apple had a large corporate order of these which was cancelled or otherwise fell apart. (A sizable bulk order would not be shipped in retail packaging.) If they had product made and packaged, they'd need somewhere to sell it. Apple certainly would not ship the products back to China to be retail packaged, or ship boxes here and package them. Another possible scenario? OWC could have ordered them at a discount to sell as white-box items at a low cost for quick cash. Or Apple may have wanted to dump some excess inventory. Again, for quick sale. So many possibilities that have zero to do with anything "shady."

This is a good point.



I am curious as to how these are labeled as new but I would not assume it is a scam or shady. Other World Computing has been in business for a LONG time and is a very reputable company in the Apple Universe. They stand by what they sell.



Please clarify. What do you mean by "these are owned by OWC"? Aren't all products not sold directly by Apple "owned" by another company before you get them? I am very curious about why they don't have the original packaging or warranty but I am also curious as to why you consider these "owned by OWC."



Again, OWC is a very trustworthy company. Definitely nothing like your third cousin ;)

Perhaps not, but until a full explanation is provided I have trouble viewing this without any suspicion or concern. If OWC is selling these at below cost to reward its customers, why not sell them intact in the Apple wrapper? I am ready to be corrected but until OWC is open and public with how this works I place them in the range of my third cousin ?

So, I was just looking at the OWC site, and it clearly states, "New, Bulk (Non-Retail) Packaging"

Now, we may definitely not be used to Apple selling products in this manner, but selling items in bulk packaging that are not labeled for individual retail sale is a very common retail practice and those items are new. Not typical for Apple products but not unheard of in retail.

Hmmm...may be a new way for Apple to dump a failed product that very few people want. If so, typical approach for the non-transparent Apple.
