More Black Friday Deals

AirPods 2 (2019)

Major sales have appeared for the older AirPods 2 models, starting at $99.99 for the AirPods 2 with Wired Charging Case, down from $129.00 at Amazon.

Final price includes $15 taken off at checkout.

AirPods Pro (2021)

Apple refreshed the AirPods Pro this fall with a new model that comes with a MagSafe Charging Case, and no other changes to the headphones. Although this is the newest version of the AirPods Pro, they're already seeing rock-bottom discounts and routinely beat the price on the 2019 non-MagSafe version.

Right now, Amazon has one of the all-around best Black Friday discounts, offering the AirPods Pro with MagSafe for $179.00, down from $249.00. Amazon is currently saying the AirPods Pro will be "in stock soon" and is accepting orders for mid-December delivery. The price has been as low as $159.00 this week, but supplies seem to be tightening, so you may not want to wait too much longer.

This version of the AirPods Pro comes with the MagSafe Charging Case, which is compatible with Apple's MagSafe Charger and other accessories that support MagSafe. Previously, the 2019 version included a Wireless Charging Case that supported Qi wireless charging but not MagSafe.

AirPods 3 (2021)

If you're looking to purchase the newest version of the AirPods, you'll want to head to Amazon for its discount on the AirPods 3. There, you can get the new model for $149.99, down from $179.00.

Final price includes $20 taken off at checkout.

Although this is a very slight discount, it remains the steepest markdown that we've tracked on the AirPods 3. For anyone looking to save more money, we recommend looking at any other model, particularly the new AirPods Pro.

AirPods Max (2020)

Amazon has AirPods Max for $429.00, down from $549.00. Only one color is available at this price, and the sale has been fluctuating in and out of availability all week, so if you see it at or around $429.00 be sure to make your purchase fast.

I hope the Airpods Max comes back on for $429 it was on there until 3 hours ago and not there anymore :( Any other retailer offering it for the same price?
Not worth it. Wait for 299 or new version.

The AirPods Pros that I ordered from Amazon on Tuesday, after seeing here that they were on sale for $159, arrive today. Glad I saw the article here and thought to grab one, I noticed later that same day that they were out of stock on Amazon at least for a short time.

Great prices!!
