The best price on AirPods is $135 at Amazon right now


Apple AirPods are admittedly overpriced — you can get true-wireless earbuds that give AirPods a run for their money for, well, a lot less money. But there’s no denying that AirPods are a great product, and there’s no shame in wanting them rather than a more generic model. We’d actively discourage you from spending $160 on them, though, since they’re on sale so frequently. Case in point: Right now you can get Apple AirPods with the wired charging case for $135. That’s the lowest price we could find right now, and it’s at about $10 less than most other retailers. 

On the other hand, if you use cashback service TopCashBack, you can get 2% back at Newegg, where the AirPods are selling for $137. That makes Newegg vs Amazon a wash right now for the best price. 

One other option: If you’re willing to try refurbished AirPods, you can do even better. Tech for Less, for example, has refurbished AirPods for $106, and they’re backed by the full Apple warranty.
