Of all the Apple deals we keep tabs on, HomePod discounts are the rarest. Throughout the year, Apple's smart speakers remain at their full MSRPs at pretty much every retailer and only really see savings in the form of bundles. That's what makes this 10% discount on the HomePod mini at Staples so appealing.

Down to $89, you're saving $10, which is the biggest direct price drop we've tracked for the HomePod mini since its launch last year. Given HomePod deals pop up so infrequently, this may well be the best Black Friday HomePod deal we see this holiday season. Shipping is free, too.

Apple's HomePod mini features punchy audio, Siri, HomeKit support, Intercom, and more. It's packed in a tiny form factor and has no right to be this loud or this clear for its size. We were full of praise for the diminutive speaker in our HomePod mini review, which you should read in full if you're not yet decided on whether to pick one up.

The best direct discount yet on Apple's HomePod mini sees 10% taken off at Staples. The deal applies to the white and space gray models there.

HomePod mini is a really versatile product, and its small size belies its power. If you're all-in on Apple products at home, it's the perfect pickup. It would make a great gift for any Apple Music user or anyone with Apple products like the iPhone, iPad, Mac, and more.

For a speaker of this size, the audio experience is rich, balanced, and never distorts, no matter how loud you take it. You can also pair two HomePod mini speakers together for stereo audio or even use them as the output for your Apple TV for a more immersive movie-watching experience.

In addition to sounding great, the HomePod mini is a fully functional HomeKit smart speaker, meaning you can use it to interact with Siri and your smart home accessories. If you're not yet set up with any smart home gear, now's a great time to start with various Black Friday HomeKit deals available ahead of the holidays.
