Electronic Deals – April 27, 2018: Sphereo R2-D2, Galaxy S8, TCL Roku TV & More


Amazon has a pretty good deal available today for those that are big Star Wars fans. The Sphero R2-D2 App-Enabled Droid is on sale today, coming in at just $69.99. Which is for a certified refurbished model, but definitely a great deal. This is an awesome item to pick up for Star Wars fans because you can do all sorts of things with this App-Enabled Droid – which works with both Android and iOS – and who doesn't love R2-D2? Probably the most popular character ever in Star Wars. This is part of Amazon's Gold Box Deal of the Day today, so that you need to pick it up before midnight PST, or while supplies last.

There are some other great deals on sale today, including the Galaxy S8 coming from Woot. They are offering up a refurbished Galaxy S8 (and Galaxy S8 Plus) that is unlocked and will work on GSM and Verizon networks. The Galaxy S8 is priced at just $399, which is actually a really good price for this smartphone, and definitely worth picking up. There are also some new TVs that are available, including the Sony X900F, which is a 55-inch Android TV that also has Alexa built-in. It's available for $1498. There is also the TCL 55-inch Roku TV that was announced at CES back in January. It is available for $649, but does not sport Google Assistant nor Amazon Alexa, so keep that in mind when picking it up. It does run on the Roku platform, however, which has a ton of apps and games available.

All of the deals listed below are accurate for today, and will expire at midnight PST on their expiration date. But keep in mind that some of these deals may end before then, if stock runs low or simply runs out. So if you are looking to get in on one of these deals, you'll want to do it as soon as possible.
