Apple's HomePod is available for a new all-time low price, no refurbished shenanigans
Typically available for $349, the premium January 2018-released Echo challenger costs only $249 in “limited supply” in both white and space gray color options. These are unused, untouched devices on special offer at B&H, sold with your standard 1-year warranty, and eligible for free nationwide shipping.
Not only are these 50 bucks cheaper than the certified refurbished products available over at the US online Apple Store, but B&H promises to deliver them much faster as well. And as far as we know, no reputable third-party retailer is gearing up to charge less than $249 next week.
Bottom line, if you don’t think the Apple HomePod should be killed off and if that recent software update added just the right features to get you off the fence, now’s definitely the time to pull the trigger.
After all, Siri may not be as smart as Google Assistant or Alexa, but as long as you don’t have a problem relying almost entirely on Apple Music and the rest of the Cupertino company’s in-house services, there are plenty of things to like about a $249 HomePod. The design is modern and chic, the audio quality objectively impressive, and yes, the smart speaker can now make hands-free phone calls, as well as set multiple timers.
