The shopping event will most likely have a plethora of good deals on the regular AirPods, AirPods Pro, and we hope, we will also see the AirPods Max discounted, despite being the newest addition to Apple’s earphones lineup. The great thing is that Prime Day is not limited to discounts on Amazon: other retailers usually slash prices as well, to match the competition. This article will explore what you can expect in terms of AirPods deals and sales this year.

AirPods Max Amazon Prime Day deals: what to expect
Best Buy, Walmart, and Target will also have their shopping events on Prime Day, and that’s a practice the retailers have been following for years now. The shopping events over at Walmart or Best Buy may have a different name, but great deals to compete with Amazon will be present.
Another option for an AirPods Max discount that we might see on Prime Day is refurbished units. If you’re willing to go for a renewed pair of premium over-the-ear headphones by Apple, here’s where we could see a more generous discount. Generally, going that route is a good strategy, given the fact that the renewed products have been made to look and work like brand new.
Prime Day AirPods Pro deals: what to expect
A deeper discount may be available for refurbished AirPods Pro. Going for a refurbished unit is an option for those of you who don't mind the wireless earbuds have been used before, but renewed to look and work like new. However, don’t expect more than a $100 discount, maybe something in the likes of $50-$70 on a refurbished unit.
Prime Day AirPods deals
Currently, we have two models of standard AirPods: the one with wireless charging case and the one with regular charging case. As Amazon Prime Day will be happening in June, we most likely won’t have the third-gen AirPods available yet. This means that we will see discounts on these two models of wireless earbuds.
Last year, the first and second-gen AirPods had discounts of around $30-$50 over at Amazon. Some of these discounts were matched by other retailers such as Walmart and Best Buy. That’s not a crazy big discount, and similar discounts can be found outside Prime Day as well. However, it is still something, and surprises are still possible (although unlikely).
Some AirPods deals available right now
Well, in case you decide to not wait for Prime Day, there are still some options you may want to look at in terms of discounts on wireless earbuds. As stated earlier, we have an article exploring the best AirPods deals right now that has the most recent deals 2021 on carriers and big retailers. There, you will find the AirPods at the lowest price available right now.
