Deals: AirPods for $140, BOGO 20% Off iTunes Gift Cards, and New Anker Flash Sale

by John_A

Costco today kicked off a new “5 Days of Deals” event just for its members, and one of the discounts is for Apple’s AirPods. Today only Costco members can purchase the headphones for $139.99, down from $159.99 — one of the best deals online for a new pair when compared to retailers like Adorama and Best Buy. Free shipping is also available.

Costco has a few other sales going on this week, with a members-only savings event that includes the 2018 9.7-inch iPad (128GB) for $359.99, down from $399.99. There are also savings on the Google Home mini, LG TV sets, and more, so be sure to visit Costco to check out all of the discounts before the sale ends.

In other deals, Target this week has App Store and iTunes gift cards on sale with its traditional buy one, get one 20 percent off discount. While not as good as the more common 15 percent discounts for a single card, this is one of the only online iTunes gift card sales going on right now, so it could be a good opportunity to add some credit to your iTunes account.

The offer is valid on $15, $25, $50, and $100 iTunes cards, which will be delivered via email. The 20 percent discount will be applied to the lower priced item, so multiple price tiers can be added at once, and after two cards are placed in your cart you’ll notice the discount. As usual, Target REDcard members can save an additional 5 percent in the sale.

We’ve rounded up a few examples of the savings you can net with Target’s new offer below:

  • 2x $15 iTunes gift cards: $27, down from $30
  • 2x $25 iTunes gift cards: $45, down from $50
  • 2x $50 iTunes gift cards: $90, down from $100
