Faster and freer than AT&T, Verizon sells AirPods
Apple takes six weeks. AT&T takes up to five business days. And so will Verizon.
Shipping a pair of AirPods to anywhere in the US shouldn’t take so long and it shouldn’t cost so much to get them in the first place. But we’re in a backwards universe and there’s nothing wrong with this situation.
Anyways, as AT&T recently picked up stock of the AirPods for delivery within two to five business days, the same has happened with Verizon. It, too, is selling the wireless earbuds for $159… and has added a 97 cent surcharge because it can.
But here’s where Big Red outdoes the Death Star: it is currently offering two-day shipping for free (it usually costs $6.99). Signature is required for delivery, made by 8pm, so you’re going to have to be comfortable sticking around the house the day after tomorrow.
Viva Verizon, we guess.
