Return to home 

In order to qualify for the swap program, the AirPods you send back to us must be:

  1. Original Apple AirPods
  2. Without water damage
  3. Without permanent stains or discoloration 
  4. Without deep cosmetic cracks/dents
  5. Without corrosion on the bottom of the stem or on the charging case

 AirPods with Water Damage, permanent stains, cracks or deep dents, corrosion

What if only one of my AirPods meets these conditions?

If only one of your AirPods is in this condition, you're perfect for the "Missing One AirPod Battery Replacement Swap." You will receive two refurbished AirPods with battery replacement and mail us back your single bud.

What happens if I send in AirPods that do not meet the swap requirements I agreed to (ie. cracked, water damaged)?

You may be subject to additional fees if the AirPods you send in do not meet the requirements. If you have questions regarding your eligibility please contact us at support@thepodswap.com.
