Apple HomePod available at massive 33 percent discount with 1-year warranty included
Discounted by as much as $100 a few times during the holiday season, the Siri-controlled device is currently available for $280 ($70 off list) at Best Buy, which is essentially the lowest price we've seen offered by a reputable retailer for brand-new units of late. But that's where top-rated eBay seller Quick Ship Electronics comes in, dropping the HomePod down to $233.99 in "new other" condition with a full 1-year warranty included.
That's obviously not the same warranty Apple provides with its brand-new or refurbished HomePod stock, but this 99.8 percent positively rated eBay merchant promises to take care of any functionality issues that might arise within a year of your purchase. Needless to say you're also offered free standard nationwide shipping, 30-day returns with full refunds available, and all the "original accessories" in retail packaging that may be "slightly distressed."
In case you're wondering, a "new other" Apple HomePod is practically an "open box" device, meaning it was either on display in a retail store somewhere or returned by someone with buyer's remorse that probably didn't get a chance to damage it in any noticeable way.
Available in a space gray color only, this undoubtedly premium smart speaker is a whopping $116 cheaper than an all-new unit sold at its full retail price. That's a massive 33 percent discount, not to mention it's 66 bucks cheaper than a refurb offered directly by Apple. It may not get better than this anytime soon, as there's no word on a prospective sequel just yet.
