eBay just started dropping Apple AirPods for $169 and here’s how to get them



You've got just 5 hours to nab yourself a bargain.

In case you missed eBay's insane $99 AirPods deal, the online giant is now giving you a second shot at scoring yourself a pair at a massively discounted price. This time, both the Apple AirPods and the Wireless Charging Case are going for $150 off the usual $319 price point, bringing your grand total to a mere $169.

Just like last time, 100 units of the AirPods are set to drop every hour on the hour from now until 5pm, so you're going to have to be super quick if you want to grab yourself a pair. Keep in mind that the sales event is exclusive to eBay Plus members, so you'll need to sign up now if you haven't done so already.

An eBay Plus membership costs $49 for the whole year and also comes with a 30-day trial period so you can try the service before you commit. In addition to a shot at a pair of cheap AirPods, membership will also get you free shipping and returns on millions of eligible items along with bonus Flybuys points. You'll also get access to other great flash deals, which eBay has recently been dropping every few weeks. You can read more about eBay Plus here.


If you haven't tried Apple AirPods before, allow us to introduce you. The nifty little headphones are completely wireless, stopping you from getting your wires caught on every conceivable surface as you dance around the house (hey, no judgement).

They're also incredibly intelligent – automatically syncing to your smart device as soon as you take them out of the case and pausing whenever you take them out of your ears. If you're not exactly a technology expert, there's no need to worry either. AirPods are a breeze to set up, let you skip songs by double-tapping them and let you engage Siri with a simple voice command. Easy.

We do have to warn you that the last time eBay discounted AirPods, all 100 units sold out instantly every hour that they dropped, so be prepared to sit on the site well in advance to snap up a pair.
