AirPods Black Friday deals are winding down now that Black Friday is over, but there are still some offers in stock. The AirPods, AirPods Pro and the AirPods Max can all be found for less, with retailers like Best Buy, Walmart and Amazon offering excellent discounts during Black Friday deals. We're likely to see the same on Monday, so keep an eye on our Airpods Cyber Monday deals, as we'll be updating that as they drop. 

The AirPods Pro just hit their lowest price ever — $159 at Walmart and Amazon, retailing for just $159. Meanwhile, the entry-level AirPods hit as low as $89. And although the deal is no longer active, we're guessing at least one retailer will offer AirPods Black Friday deals at that price again today through Cyber Monday. 

Yes, you can find AirPods deals any time of the year. However, Black Friday deals offer the lowest prices, with epic discounts that you typically don't see the rest of the time. And with the new AirPods 3 available for purchase, we expect to see more AirPods Black Friday deals than ever. Below you'll find the best AirPods Black Friday deals you can shop now.

AirPods Black Friday deals — where to find sales

When it comes to AirPods Black Friday deals, we tend to gravitate toward the deals offered by Amazon, Walmart, and Best Buy. Staples has also proved to be a noteworthy contender when it comes to sales. In fact, it was Staples that first dropped the AirPods Pro price to $199 last September. Amazon immediately followed suit. That said, these retailers will lead the charge when it comes to AirPods Black Friday deals this year. 

Apple doesn't really do Black Friday sales. But starting on Friday (Nov. 26), the company will launch the Apple holiday sales event in which it offers gift cards when you purchase Apple products. In the case of the AirPods, buying any model will get you a $75 gift card. That sales event runs through Monday (Nov. 29).
