It’s definitely a good time to pick up a HomePod. Apple just started selling refurbished models for $299.99, while Best Buy will sell the Siri-equipped speaker for $249.99 on Black Friday, and now B&H Photo is offering that same price right now — no need to wait for post-Thanksgiving carnage.
That represents $100 off the sticker price, a startling 29-percent reduction for an Apple product still in its first year on sale. The HomePod isn’t for everyone, as it only really makes sense as a smart speaker if you use Apple Music and are invested in the Apple ecosystem. But its sound quality is amazing for the size, and $249.99 is a great price even if you only ever use it as an AirPlay 2 speaker.
