    Seriously. Don't own a single homepod but might buy multiple if I can snag them at this price.

    Do we know when this deal goes live? Thanksgiving Day when their sale starts?

    It’s on the Friday Doorbuster Ad.

    NOW
    B&H is doing the $250 price with no tax and free shipping.

    This is better deal for most folks since no tax outside of NY

    Hopefully, you can order online and not really a doorbuster deal.

    I don't see it listed under "doorbusters", myself. So I'm not sure its one of those. I hope not...I really dont want to go and wait in line with all that craziness.

    Some people sai Best Buy was starting to offer some deals starting this week. Is the HomePod a part of that?

    None of the Best Buy's around me have any HomePod stock currently. Every store is currently set as pickup Saturday. Was hoping to grab a couple late Friday night. Maybe I'll just have to order online.

    I
    Interesting... none of the stores have them in stock around me as well.

    Will stock change Friday? I bought a pair of headphones yesterday at Best Buy that said “not in stores” on the site, but it was. I think Black Friday messes everything up.

    Part of me wonders if they are just holding them back for Friday because it has them as available for pickup on Saturday. That doesn’t seem like it would make sense though because if someone wanted to buy them at full price they would be out of luck. Who knows. Just hoping I can grab two of them at that price.

    Fingers crossed! I’m really hoping this is one of the offers they are making online so I don’t have to go to the store.

    Same here, I'm in Minnesota, Twin Cities area stores all say "out of stock" too, online. Odd! I'm going to stop in at my local Best Buy today and ask someone if the HomePod deal will be available online on Thursday @ 5 or 6 (whichever time it starts).

    Just stopped by my store since I had to get a charger. Online said none in stock, but they had 3 new ones on the shelf, and one open box. I wonder if we can get even a better discount on open box Black Friday.

    We still don't know if this is an in-store only or also online deal? I would imagine that since it has not been designated as "ISO" then they will be available online, but I would also expect it to be more of a crapshoot online. Who knows....

    Open box is the what I’m hoping to find. I bought my dad an open box HomePod for Father’s Day. The one they gave me when I went to pick it up still had the Apple wrapping on it. I don’t know if it was a mistake or if someone returned it without opening and they had to sell it as open box.

    Please let me know what they say. It’s hard to decipher this stuff with the ad. In some places it says prices valid 22nd-24th and then there’s some spots that say door busters.

    I’m 95% certain that it will be available online.

    I stopped in at the local Best Buy and definitely had the "Big Box Store" experience... first person I asked in Customer Service acted like it was their first day on the job and didnt know if the HomePod would be available at that price online or just in store... Then the second person didnt know but actually asked for a manager and the manager said its NOT a ticketed item (think a 40" Samsung 4k TV that every other Black Friday shopper is going after)... so in the end, the manager said since it wasn't labeled to be "IN STORES ONLY" at the BF price, that meant it SHOULD be online at that price too...and available for in-store pickup.

    And if it’s available online, what time will that go live? Haha

    I hope this is the case. Otherwise I’m taking 2 HomePods on the plane with me and that’s less than ideal

    This is a great question. Will it be 5pm when stores open? Will it be midnight Black Friday? Will it go live EST?! I’m so nervous I’m gonna miss out on the deal
