Apple AirPods are discounted on Walmart ahead of Black Friday

Apple’s AirPods are some of the best wireless earbuds on the market. For iOS users, there are simply no better alternatives. They bring you to a wonderful world of simple, wire-free listening as soon as you pop them in your ears. If you need to adjust the volume, place a call, create a calendar event, or look up for information, just ask Siri and she’ll take care of it.

So you’ve finally decided to retire from your good, old EarPods. Lucky for you, we found spectacular discounts one of the previous models of the Apple AirPods. Take advantage of these deals from Walmart before the Black Friday and Cyber Week shopping craze begins.

From an aesthetic point of view, there’s not much difference between the old and new versions of AirPods. This model still flaunts the same black acoustic screens and golf tee antennas. Where Apple really kicked things up a notch is in the interior. The AirPods are infused with the new H1 chip which makes the new “Hey, Siri” feature possible. This chipset also comes with some added functions and a more reliable Bluetooth performance. For instance, call quality is better despite talking in windy environments.

Apple also made improvements on the sound front. The soft and pleasant warmth of the instruments and clarity of the treble and midrange are accompanied by full and impressive bass. The AirPods’ audio may not be the best there is, but it offers plenty of power even at medium volume level. They also sit gently on the ears, letting in just a fair amount of ambient sound.

If you want a true wireless convenience, this model is perfect for you. It comes with an updated case that supports Qi wireless charging. The case has a blinking LED light so you can easily identify the charging status. Green means it’s filled up, while amber means it needs more charging.

AirPod deals are hard to come by, so buying it now for $34 less is definitely a steal. Don’t pass up the chance to score the best true wireless earbuds for iOS on sale by ordering now.


Apple AirPods with Charging Case

— $139, was $159

If you’re not after the wireless charging case functionality and don’t want to shell out a few extra bucks for the particular feature, consider this variant instead. It carries similar functions with the version discussed above. The AirPods will still get multiple charges from the case, but the included case does not have support for Qi wireless charging.

The Apple AirPods with Charging Case will normally set you back $159, but Walmart’s early Black Friday deal brings its price down to just $139. Grab yours now while the deal is live.

Whether you’re shopping around for student laptop deals, or you’ve been hoping for an awesome MacBook discount to land in your lap, we found an excellent deal on some restored equipment we feel is worth mentioning: As part of this Walmart Deals Sale offer, you’ll be able to take home a restored 11.6-inch MacBook Air with an Intel i5 CPU, along with wireless earbuds and a wireless mouse.

Why you should buy the MacBook Air bundle
The MacBook Air featured in this Walmart offer is an MJVM2LL model, which was released back in 2015.

That means the computer was put through a multi-point inspection by Walmart, with repairs and restorations provided on an as-needed basis. In a way, it’s almost like owning a brand-new MacBook Air, as long as you don’t mind an older OS (macOS Yosemite in this case) and CPU.

Grab this ice cream maker while it’s discounted in Walmart’s sale
ninja creami walmart deal may 2024

With summer pretty much here, there are very few things that can be more refreshing than ice makers, and if you're looking to pick up one of the best ice cream makers to help cool you down, you're in luck. That's because the Ninja CREAMi has a great deal going for it right now in the Walmart Deals sales event, and even better than that, it actually does a lot more than just ice cream. You can grab it for just $169, rather than the usual $199 it goes for, so you get a solid $30 off the regular price.

Why you should buy the Ninja CREAMi
The Ninja CREAMi is a pretty interesting device, given that it does a lot more functions than just making ice cream. For example, it can make milkshakes, sorbets, and even light ice cream for those who don't enjoy the heavy creaminess of regular ice cream. Of course, there is a little preparation that needs to go into it, as the first step of any of these is freezing what you want made in the freezer overnight. But that's a simple process, and you get a couple of containers you can use, so you can have them going simultaneously or one after the other. Once that's done, you just stick it in the Ninja CREAMi and choose whatever option you want, and it preps it for you, and that usually involves blending and churning whatever you put in the container.
