If you don’t want to pay full price on the new AirPods and you also have a Costco membership, today’s your lucky day. The popular retailer is once again selling the standard model for just $139.99Remove non-product link, down from the normal retail price of $159. You can pick them up at your local Costco for free, but you’ll have to pay a $5 fee if you want to have them shipped.
If you just want the new wireless charging caseRemove non-product link for your old iPods, Costco is also selling it for $70, down $9 from the normal retail price. It’s not much, but it’s something.
As for the new AirPods, this is a good deal you’ve never bought a pair of AirPods before. The new ones comes with new features such as hands-free “Hey, Siri” support (which frees up one of the custom button taps) and a new H1 chip that makes wireless pairing even easier than it was before. You can even connect to calls faster.
Overall, though, this is a minor upgrade to the previous AirPods. They’re probably not worth an upgrade if you already have the first-generation model (at least if you’re still getting good battery life out of them), but again, you should check this out if you’re an AirPods noobie.
