The original HomePod came out way back in 2018 with the smaller (and cheaper) HomePod mini being released in late 2020. Apple officially discontinued the original HomePod in 2021, though it is still available while supplies last.

Both models can be used with Apple Music and as a HomeKit smart home hub. The larger model may be overkill for many people in terms of volume and audiophile-level sound quality, plus the price might put it out of reach for those simply looking for an affordable speaker for streaming music and smart home controls.

In addition to music streaming and smart home stuff, you can ask Siri to set timers, check the weather, play a podcast, ask for information, set reminders, and even access your messages or initiate phone calls. With multiple HomePod devices around your home, you’ll be able to get multi-room audio going easily or add two to the same room for stereo sound.

Here’s a breakdown of current HomePod deals and prices.

Best HomePod Mini Deals

Apple’s HomePod mini debuted in fall 2020 as a compact and more affordable alternative to the original HomePod. Despite being just over 3 inches tall, the HomePod mini is still a great speaker with a balanced and surprisingly loud sound, but its smaller form and cheaper price make it easier to justify picking up a few for different spaces around your home.

Best HomePod Deals

Apple’s full-sized HomePod has been officially discontinued by Apple but it is still available to buy while supplies last. The discontinuation hasn’t caused a fire sale, though. In fact, quite the opposite. HomePod prices have risen since the news that it is soon to become available was made official.

The original HomePod pumps out impressive high-fidelity audio with the subwoofer and seven tweeter array, and it has spatial awareness with support for your Apple TV 4K audio, and works great as a HomeKit hub and Siri voice control device.

Apple HomePod | $284.88 at OWC

These HomePod models on sale at OWC may be open-box, but they come backed with a 1-year OWC warranty for peace of mind. Since the HomePod is not discontinued, this might be your last chance to snag one.

HomePod Price Tracking

HomePod sales are fairly rare, though the original model did see some significant savings around Black Friday in 2019, dropping as low as $200. Those sorts of prices have not returned since and 2020’s holiday season didn’t bring around any similar sales.

The HomePod mini is already more affordable at $99 and is much newer, having been on the market for just a few months, so hasn’t had as much opportunity for discounting. The lowest we have seen it go so far is $89, just $10 off its retail price.
