If you're on the hunt for a bargain on Apple's HomePod this May, your search is officially over. While some sites showcase just about every shop and website you can buy the HomePod or HomePod mini, discounted or not, we've manually scoured the web and, using our tech expertise, handpicked the best value deals available right now.

If you're on the hunt for a great HomePod or HomePod Mini deal, the current offering is scarce to say the least, but here are some of the best you'll find right now in the UK:

1. Apple HomePod Mini

From: Currys PC World (eBay Store)

Was: £99

Now: £84.99  (£14.01 off)

It may only be £14 off, but the discount on offer from Currys PC World's eBay Store makes it the cheapest place to grab Apple's brand new HomePod Mini right now. It really is mini at 3in tall, but it's just as smart as its bigger sibling.

It's worth noting that Apple has officially discontinued the first-generation HomePod, although it's likely that retailers will continue to sell the speaker until stock depletes.

Regardless of its discontinued status, the HomePod is, like most Apple products, premium when compared to the competition. It still sells for around £279 in the UK following a price reduction in April 2019, putting it in line with the likes of Google's Home Max speaker.

But why is the price so much higher than the competition? Apple has focused primarily on audio quality with the HomePod, offering premium-level room-filling audio that can be automatically tweaked depending on where the speaker is in the room.

You've also got access to Siri, albeit a basic version that doesn't quite match the functionality of Siri on iPhones, iPads and even Macs, and of course, you've got Apple Music integration on offer too.

It's worth noting that now the main HomePod has been discontinued, it's entirely possible that future updates will be exclusive to the smaller HomePod Mini, so if it's not smart enough for you right now, chances are it never will be.

You've also got the newly introduced HomePod Mini. At £99/$99 it's certainly more budget-friendly than the standard HomePod, and as the name indicates, it's pretty small - no really, it's around 3in tall. But despite the small exterior, it still offers great audio playback capabilities, access to Siri and all the other smarts available on the full-size HomePod. 

The catch is that the price makes it incredibly popular, with deals non-existent right now. You'd be lucky enough to find it in stock in the UK this May:

Where to find HomePod deals

Generally speaking, Apple isn't a company that joins in with the sales bonanzas. But, while Apple doesn't offer discounts on its range, other retailers do.

We've seen the likes of Amazon, John Lewis and other UK retailers posting discounts and deals on Apple products including the HomePod, and that's likely to continue now that the product has been officially discontinued - retailers will need to shift existing stock, after all!

You've even got UK carriers getting in on the HomePod action, with the likes of EE offering existing customers the option of spreading the cost of the speaker over the course of 11 months, although you'll be paying above the RRP for the pleasure.

You've also traditionally had the option of heading to Apple's Refurb Store to pick up a discounted HomePod, but these are out of stock right now. The refurbished models are (as the name suggests) pre-owned, but Apple meticulously checks every unit before shipping them out to consumers so you shouldn't notice much of a difference in quality compared to a brand new unit.

It's also worth pointing out that Amazon has confirmed that its Prime Day sale is set to return on an unconfirmed day in June 2021, and it's entirely possible that the HomePod and HomePod Mini will feature among its deals, but there's no guarantee that the Prime deals will be better than those available right now.

If you see a deal you like the look of, don't hesitate - HomePod deals don't stick around for long!
