Deals: AirPods With Wireless Charging Case Return to Low Price of $149.98 on Amazon ($49 Off)

by

Amazon has returned the AirPods with Wireless Charging Case to their lowest price of $149.98 today, down from Apple's price of $199.00. This accessory is the model that launched in 2019 and includes a Wireless Charging Case that is compatible with Qi-enabled mats.

Amazon introduced this price point last month, and the sale has come and gone over the past few weeks. If you've been on the hunt for the AirPods in 2020, this is definitely the best entry price for a new version of Apple's AirPods with Wireless Charging Case.

$49 OFF
AirPods w/ Wireless Charging Case for $149.98

The same AirPods can be found for around $169-$179 at retailers like Adorama and Best Buy, so Amazon's sale is the best you'll find online this week. Sales have also hit the AirPods with Charging Case, priced at $135.99 at Verizon, down from $159.00.

At Verizon, the AirPods Pro also remain at their sale price of $224.99, down from $249.00. Although this discount is just about $24 off Apple's price tag, it remains the lowest we've ever tracked for a new version of the AirPods Pro, and the best online among trusted Apple resellers.

We track sales for every model of the AirPods in our Best AirPods Deals guide, so be sure to bookmark that page while you shop around for the wireless headphones.

While I share your frustration with how disposable many tech items have become, a pair of AirPods that gave you 2 years of enjoyment for about 22 cents a day does seem to be a pretty amazing deal. :)

Ok, well when you put it that way... :)


For those who may have a Micro Center nearby (within 25 miles of you), I was able to get Best Buy to price match for $129.99 ('https://www.microcenter.com/product/606636/apple-airpods-with-wireless-charging-case-(2nd-generation)---white'). It is highly YMMV though because I was turned down through the BB Chat, due to the Micro Center deal being in-store only, and was instructed by the Chat agent to go to a physical BB store to do the price match.

I do have a Micro Ctr about 14 miles from me, love that store and missing just going inside browsing. My local Best Buy about 2 miles away- hit or miss...I've had associates always price match M.C., yet a few times I would get someone that tries to claim they "don't price match Micro Ctr.," even the manager on duty at the time won't give in - kind of depends on how much Best Buy will lose. Oh well...no sale then!

I then called the BB support number, and reasoning with them (especially given the current pandemic situation) they ended up honoring it as a one-time courtesy. I don't know if it matters that I am a BB Platinum member, but it can't hurt to try.

Picked up these this week. I bought the AirPods Pro a week ago, but my brain is physically rejecting them. Anyone else get motion sickness from ANC? I like the shorter stems of the Pros, but that’s about it. It’s a great deal and saves me $$&

I hated them so much as well. I had the same problem as well. For NC, I will stick to over-ear design. It also seemed like I had to actually think about them to use every time as well. My first gens, just stick them in my ears and go.
