..........$299 and with full Apple warranty......listed under 'iPhones'......both colors.....


Apple Now Selling Refurbished HomePod for $299

.....Apple today added the HomePod to its online store for refurbished products in the United States, offering the smart speaker at a discount for the first time.

The HomePod, normally priced at $349, is available in both white and space gray for $299, a $50 discount off of the regular price.



There is no HomePod listing on the main Apple refurbished site as of yet, but it should be added in the near future. For now, the HomePod can be purchased from the individual HomePod refurbished listing. Apple is still rolling out refurbished models, so the page doesn't work on occasion, but will show up with refreshing.

A refurbished HomePod bought today will be delivered between November 30 and December 14, depending on shipping method selected at the time of purchase.

Introduced in February, the HomePod is Apple's Siri-enabled smart speaker that pairs well with Apple Music. It serves as a Home hub, features AirPlay 2 support, can make phone calls, and offers up most of the capabilities of Siri on an iPhone.

Apple's refurbished stock is often limited in quantity and can sell out, which is something to be aware of. Checking the refurbished site often or using a tracking site is the best way to figure out when a particular item that you might want is in stock.

Purchasing a refurbished HomePod from Apple is a good way to get a like-new device at a lower price point. All of Apple's refurbished products are tested, certified, cleaned, and guaranteed with a one-year warranty that can be extended with AppleCare+.



better than the Woot deal because it comes with full Apple warranty......?!

I'm curious how well it works because my Amazon Echo Plus works great!!! Understands most of my words. Siri on my iPhone is kind of challenged... smiling smiley

I don't know a single person who has one and none of the apple podcasts ever mention the HomePod. I'd say it's a dud most likely. Then again I haven't found a single use for my Alexa other than the occasional kitchen timer so maybe I'm not the target audience for this type of device.

I know that others have Apple Watches, but I don't know a single person who has one.

That it's to mentioned on podcast or otherwise online isn't surprising. At some point, there's nothing more to talk about, until there's something new to talk about.

But even then, you still may not be the target demographic. I don't use Alexa for home automation, because she keeps forgetting that's her job.

I do use her for answering a lot of trivial question and unit conversions that I'm too lazy to look up on the web. She's much faster in that respect, but also a little hard of hearing.

One of the strengths of the HomePod is Siri's ability to hear you at distance, low speaking levels, and while music is playing loudly.

Not enough to recommend it to someone not in the target demographic, but it's still on my list.

I see the AppleWatch quite frequently. I see health workers with them all the time as well as people at the gym. That's just my own experience though.

I'm not against the HomePod. I just don't see a use case while Siri is so dysfunctional.

Of course I have an Apple HiFi so what do I know. winking smiley

Although I want to agree with this, cant.

If you have ever heard a $99 BT speaker, you would know they are "meh" at best. And no siri support.

homepod sounds awesome. Sonos one is the closest comparision, and its $199.

B&H Photo had them for $249. this morning with no tax (most places) and free delivery.

They sold out before I could grab one.

I only found out about that minutes ago from Bo's post.

I would have been all over that!
