Airpods Pro $199.99 AT&T Store **YMMV**

Please read all details, hoping to help anyone else out if possible.

Buy Airpods Pro for $249.99 with any 2 other accessories, save 20% on each. Can pay for it all outright or make 12 payments and just pay tax upfront. Now for the YMMV part...

I imagine this applies to AT&T wireless customers only. AT&T has had the buy 3 accessories get 20% off thing for a long time. As many of you may know, Apple products are excluded from this. Why the system is allowing this for Airpods Pro (and who knows what else now that I think of it...) I do not know, but this worked for me yesterday. I got extra lucky and found 2 PopSockets discounted to $5 each. With 20% off of each I paid $199.99, $4, and $4...net $42 off ($207.99) for the Airpods Pro (assuming no use for the PopSockets). I'm also led to believe that I can return the PopSockets for full refund ($8.48 with tax) and that the Airpods Pro remains $199.99. Keep in mind that *if* this is still working, finding $5 PopSockets (look for the Fantastic Beasts ones) would also be YMMV. Having said that, it's still a savings buying 2 $15 dollar ones, and supposedly you can return them anyway. For all I know it may work online too, couldn't hurt to check.

Good luck!

They're knock-offs when they're so low ..... those Sellers are probably from overseas.

BUT ..... ingenious people buy them in bulk and resell on Ebay, Craigslist, OfferUp, LetGo, etc.

And what can you REALLY do to get your $$$ back when you LATER discover you got knock-offs???

Many things are copied and sold through a website I cannot mention here because I've been told by SD I cannot mention that website here again..... understood? Sad, but true.

What typically happens is a company, like a Danish company famous for their interlocking bricks of plastic (their name has four letters, starts with an L), will contract with a Chinese manufacturer to make a million bricks.

That manufacturer gets all the specs, and begins production ..... production of both the million plastic bricks for that L-company ...... AND two million of the same bricks for themselves.

A Millennium Falcon that should be 750 USD from that L-company costs only 250 USD from the Chinese company.

With electronics it's the same .... once Apple shares specs with a manufacturer, it's Game Over .... Counterfeits hit the market before the legit stuff even gets to America.

..... in a way, it's NOT an Apple Airpod because Apple only contracted with that Chinese manufacturer to make X-number of Airpods .... but it "is" an Apple Airpod since that Chinese company made X+Z number of Airpods.

One INGENIOUS group decided to take knock-off Chinese iPhones to Apple Stores ALL OVER the U.S. ..... and swindled Apple out of big bucks!!! Details:

https://www.npr.org/2019/04/05/71...one-scheme

...... NOTE: Even APPLE THEMSELVES didn't know they were getting a counterfeit at the store!!!

How will you know, when Apple Store people don't know?

You could try: there should be online videos on identifying Counterfeit from Legit Airpods..... I know because this past December 23rd I get a text from a buddy asking where he can buy Airpods as a gift .... and I explained all of the above preventing him from making a mistake.

He did score a legit pair ..... from his local AT&T store, ironically.

My brother got taken with fake Airpods Pro from ebay. Please do not buy them from ebay as some sellers are selling fakes for close to the price of the real ones. I knew it was a fake the second I saw it.

This works, but don't be a jerk and return the other items. You can get Aux to lightning dongles for $7.50 each, for example, and it makes the AirPods Pro ring for $199.99

I called my local AT&T store, and he said that AirPods are excluded from the 20% promotion. But on my request, to double check, he tried to ring 3 AirPods (I asked him to ring 3 AirPods just to make it easy instead of hunting 2 other accessories) and the 20% discount didn't kick in Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

If this has worked for anyone else beside the OP, please post.

You're telling people to not be a jerk by returning items to AT&T? Thank God scumbag corporations have people like you defending them online. Heaven forbid AT&T loses a couple dollars off the deal. Check your priorities. Nobody likes a bootlicker. Total clown post.
