I was in the store today to grab an apple tv 4k version for my other bedroom when I saw a sign for some apple air pods 1st generation for $99.97. This was put on clearance today and I was able to grab the last set.

Remember this is a YMMV post so good luck to anyone else who finds them in stock!

Thanks! I've never seen these for less than $100 before and once i saw the price I had to get a set especially since my wife has been wanting one. I was lucky enough to get the last pair so good luck to everyone looking for a pair.

You may have lucked out getting a returned item. I've come away from Costco with some interesting things over the years that had been out of stock for a few months, and then one copy showed up at a discount.

So you don't know the answer either?
I don't really define "need" based on how old the need is.

1st generation isn't much different than 2nd. Shorter battery life and the ability to say "hey seri" which my iPhone 11 already does on its own so it's not needed.

For me the $40 savings over a second generation is worth it, plus this is Costco so I have a 2 year warranty if I ever have any issues. If you are a person that is all about owning the latest tech, then this is not a deal for you. Also this was not a returned item, the employee told me that they sold a lot of them today after they clearance price was posted and I got the last one.

Edit: never mind just tested them and "Hey Siri" works with them. Maybe it's because I have an iPhone 11? Or maybe they updated the 1st generation to a version 2 or something. I'm not sure, but that feature does work for me.

Not worth it. I'd pay a little more for the second gen that could be had for like $20 more.
