Electronics Deals – Aug. 16th, 2017: Sony XB30 Speaker, Fitbit Discounts & More

August 16, 2017 - Written By Alexander Maxham


Back to school sales are still going strong right now. And Amazon has a great deal on the Sony XB30 Bluetooth speaker, which is currently just $98. That’s $50 off of the retail price, and it’s a great Bluetooth speaker to have in your dorm room. This speaker will provide plenty of battery life – around 8 to 10 hours of continuous playback, and also sound great while doing so. There’s also a great deal on the Denon HEOS 1 speaker, which is like a SONOS PLAY:1 but a bit cheaper.

Of course, the Fitbit August sale is still going on through the end of this month. So that you are able to get a new fitness tracker at a cheaper price. The Flex 2 is going for $59, the Alta for $99, Alta HR and Charge 2 for $129 and the Blaze for $149. Definitely a great discount for those looking to get in shape – although you did miss the time for getting your body ready for summer, but there’s always next year. On top of that, there are still some great sales on the Galaxy S8, LG G6 and other top smartphones.

As always, all of the expiration dates listed below are set to expire at midnight PDT, unless otherwise noted, so keep that in mind.

Samsung Galaxy S8

Amazon has currently discounted the Galaxy S8 by $150, which is an incredible price for a great smartphone. The Galaxy S8 sports a 5.8-inch Quad HD display, powered by the Snapdragon 835 and 4GB of RAM. There is also 64GB of storage along with a micro SD card slot for expanding storage if needed and it’s all powered by a 3000mAh battery.
