This year’s long and spaced-out Black Friday shopping season might feel a bit unusual, but don’t worry too much about whether or not the deals will be up to par. Walmart just announced a killer Black Friday deal on second-generation AirPods, which you will be able to snag for just $89 from November 10th-14th (while supplies last).
Feel free to shop at your nearest Walmart or choose between in-store pickup and home delivery — you get free shipping either way.
In an effort to avoid stock issues and shipping delays, Walmart is offering weekly Deals for Days promotions instead of a brief, concentrated Black Friday blowout sale. Walmart has already released its Deals for Days ads for the first half of November, so read up if you want to start planning your purchases ahead of time.
Unlike the standard mad dash to the electronics section on Black Friday, the Deals for Days format gives you ample time to scout current stock at your local Walmart and train your “Add to Cart” trigger fingers. If you’re a Walmart Plus member, you can start shopping the sales four hours before they’re available to the general public. If you want, you can have the AirPods shipped to your local Walmart store for free, too.
Getting the Best Deal on Second-Generation AirPods
Apple AirPods with Charging Case (Second Generation) — Upcoming Sale Price: $89 | Reg. Price: $119
It looks like Apple isn’t quite ready to remove second-generation AirPods from its line of products. That means you don’t have to pay full price for the latest model if you just need a decent pair of Apple ecosystem-friendly earbuds. Now that the third generation is available for pre-order, Apple has permanently knocked $30 off of the previous model’s MSRP — AirPods with a wired charging case now retail for $129 at full price, or you can purchase the wireless version for $159.
Most importantly, this price cut indicates that the all-time best price for second-generation AirPods may drop even lower – right in time for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Until Walmart’s AirPods deal goes live and breaks the record, the current record low for second-generation AirPods (not counting group discounts or refurbished models) remains at $99, or $129 for AirPods with a wireless charging case.
Black Friday is still over a month away, so we might see even better AirPods deals as we get deeper into the holiday shopping season. It remains to be seen if other retailers plan on upstaging Walmart’s record-breaking AirPods deal, but the odds are good enough to warrant setting a Deal Alert for AirPods. Once another retailer is brave enough to break Walmart’s record low AirPods price, you’ll be the first to know.
