TL;DR: Apple’s all-new AirPods Pro typically retail for $249, but this Black Friday, Amazon is selling them for $234.98 — a savings of just over $14. It’s not much, but it’s probably the best holiday deal we’re going to get on the ultra-popular earbuds.
Apple has always been a bit of a Scrooge when it comes to sales, even on Black Friday. If anything, you’ll see Tim Cook and company offer gift card promotions on select devices over the coming holiday shopping weekend (as opposed to price deductions), but they’ll probably be few and far between.
Fortunately, authorized Apple retailers like Walmart, Best Buy, and Amazon don’t abide by the same “no discounts” policy (they’re the real MVPs, TBH) — and if you keep your peepers peeled for good deals, you can avoid paying full price for MacBooks, iPads, iPhones, and AirPods these next couple of days.
Speaking of, here’s one sale that’s caught our eyes ahead of Black Friday: Amazon is offering $14 off the AirPods Pro, an all-new iteration of Apple’s uber-popular earbuds featuring active noise cancellation and a comfortable, water-resistant design. (Read our official review here.)
Granted, that’s not the most exciting discount, but it’s highly unlikely that anyone else will come through with a ridiculous last-minute price drop on these premium earbuds, which usually retail for $249. We could *hypothetically* see the good folks over at Target organizing some sort of gift card deal, but if it existed, you’d think they would’ve announced it by now.
Long story short: Amazon’s pricing is probably the best you’ll get on the AirPods Pro this holiday season, so grab ’em there while you still can.
