expiredApple’s HomePod is currently discounted to $215 or less at Costco for everyone

Costco is currently offering the Apple HomePod Smart Speaker on sale for $199.97 with $4.99 shipping. Non-members will see a $10 fee at checkout, while members will see no additional charges. This is down from its $299 going rate, current $229 sale price, and matches the lowest that we’ve tracked in new condition. I recently switched from Sonos to HomePod for my living room smart speaker and couldn’t speak highly enough of Apple’s device. The audio quality is far better than my Sonos One or Play:1, HomeKit and Apple Music control is phenomenal, and the design is untouched. Learn more in our hands-on review.

Now, with your savings during this HomePod sale, you’ll potentially want to grab this wall mount. It’s $37 and will allow you to bring the HomePod to new heights in your home when the savings from this sale are used. Plus, the elegant design matches Apple’s build quality perfectly.

expiredLatest Apple AirPods on sale from $140, w/ wireless charging case $180 (Reg. $199)

Update: You can currently lock in the $140 price tag at Amazon, and it will ship as soon as stock is available.

Costco offers its members Apple’s second generation AirPods starting at $139.99. You can jump up to the upgraded wireless charging case for $179.99. Swing by your local Costco to avoid any shipping fees, otherwise you’ll be charged $5 for delivery. As a comparison, each model typically sells for $159 and $199 each. The second generation AirPods offer support for “Hey, Siri” and include Apple’s upgraded H1 chip for fast wireless pairing. They are already a #1 best-seller at Amazon and we loved them in our hands-on review.

Prefer a lower-cost alternative to the latest AirPods? Save nearly 50% and opt for Anker’s Soundcore Liberty Air earbuds. You will miss out on deep iOS integration and “Hey, Siri” support, but there’s still a lot to like here. Check out my review for additional details.
