Verizon today introduced one of the first big Black Friday discounts of the season, offering a rarely-low price for Apple’s HomePod mini. You can get the smart speaker for $79.99 in all colors, starting at $99.99 and you do not have to be a Verizon customer to receive this offer.

While we’ve seen the HomePod mini drop at lower prices in the past, discounts on the accessories have been extremely rare over the last year; In 2022 alone, we only tracked prices below $89.99 once or twice. This makes Verizon’s offer very valuable to anyone who’s been waiting for a sale of the HomePod mini this holiday season.

We’re tracking all of the season’s best Apple-related deals in our Black Friday summaryso keep checking back throughout the month for an updated list of the most notable discounts you’ll find for Black Friday 2022.
