AirPods Pro briefly dropped to $ 190 during Prime Day sales on Woot, but sold out immediately. The price has stabilized Between $ 195 and $ 200 on Amazon And other retailers have since, but with Walmart announcing them at $ 169 starting November 25, a new price war has begun.
Walmart came strong in the early Black Friday sale game by slashing the price of the AirPods to $ 99 – the lowest price ever. This is matched by Amazon and (with membership) on Costco And the Sam’s Club. The deal has expired at the moment, but we expect it to return later in the season.

Personally, I would get either the cheaper AirPods or the AirPods Pro. But if you’re really passionate about wireless charging, know that you can get the standard AirPods with a wireless charging case for $ 160, which is $ 39 versus the Apple store price.
