Deal: Apple AirPods (1st gen) on sale for just $129.99 at Costco (save $30)
More specifically, Costco still has some first-gen AirPods stock laying around and is currently selling them at the discounted price of $129.99 – prior to their discontinuation, the wearables cost $159. If you are lucky enough to find a pair in a physical store, there are naturally no shipping fees. But if you make the purchase online that’ll be an additional $4.99, bringing the price up to $134.98 which is still pretty respectable.
The original AirPods feature Apple’s W1 chip which provides up to five hours of listening time on a single charge. And if you are on the go, a quick 15-minute charge in the included case will provide an impressive 3 hours of use. As for how the old pair compare to the new AirPods, you can check out our in-depth comparison.
On a related note, it’s worth noting that the first-gen AirPods don’t ship with a wireless charging case. However, if wireless charging at any point becomes a feature you wish to have, Apple’s wireless charging case can be purchased separately and will work perfectly with the original AirPods.
