    Looking to get some AirPods finally. I know they are in short supply with a decent demand, so its hard to find "in stock" AirPods. Figured Id see where the community purchased theirs from and how much.

    All I see is $199.99 USD and up online and nothing in store around southern New England, USA.

    (Apologies if this is a similar thread to others, I didnt dig to deep looking so if so, dont kill me... HA! Thanks)

    I bought them from eBay for £215 English pounds in January.

    I bought mine the day Apple started pre-orders on these back in December and received mine on 12/19/16. Originally stated for 12/23/16 but got them earlier as an early Christmas gift from Apple. I recommend istocknow.com and set up an e-mail to notify you when apple gets them in stock. I did this to get a second pair for my wife and was able to get one when Apple had them in stock.

    I purchased at my local Apple Store just by chance. Went in just to look around and asked if they had any, and they did. Also was informed that if they get in less than 30 units it doesn't show as in stock on the website for I store pickup. So if you have a store close by just go in and ask they just might have some.

    You don't even have to go to a store to see if they have available stock of AirPods. You can simply call and when prompted, say "Manager", and you can ask your store personnel if they have any available units, which they will confirm.

    Also, Jaeb0922, AT&T recently receives stock as well.

    I just called up a retail store of the biggest telecommunications/internet provider here & they had a few in stock. This was my first stock enquiry at a non-Apple store, roughly within a week of release.

    I bought mine via Best Buy. It had projected a 4 week waiting time but it shipped well before that.

    I bought mine from AT&T (my carrier) based off of a post here. Ordered and had it in my hands in 5 days (including a weekend). Others have ordered from AT&T since and had a long delivery date.

    Also got mine from AT&T. Caught them when they had some in stock and got them pretty quickly after ordering. Very happy with my AirPods.

    If anyone needs a brand new sealed set, Pm me. If it's a local pickup cash deal, it will be pretty close to at cost.

    Best Buy. Saw they were in stock at a local store, walked in and walked out with them 5 minutes later.

    Apple store at my location has them in stock now. But they don't show up on the apple website as pick up as these are for walk ins.

    I paid list price from the Apple website... ordered them on Dec 13 of last year... they arrived at my door on Dec 19.

    I use them almost every day.

    Originally bought them from Apple, but returned them as I had $150 in gift cards at Best Buy. So I picked them up for around $17 after taxes.
