Who’s got the best price on these wire-free earbuds?
Apple AirPods are a lot like Apple EarPods — just without the wires. But you pay for that cord-free freedom: AirPods list for $159, and discounts are rare (and usually small). But Black Friday is coming, and that means deals on everything, right?
Sam’s Club had a great deal on AirPods earlier this month ($129), but that sale has expired. Instead, we’re seeing two other notable offers.

Quoting the carrier’s press release: “Beginning today and going through Nov. 26, customers can get $50 off Apple AirPods or up to $100 off Beats headphones with the purchase of a new iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch.”
