Electronics Deals – October 19, 2018: Fitbit, Amazon Fire TV, Pixel 3 & More


Fitbit is hosting a pretty good sale on some of its more popular fitness trackers. As part of its sale today, you can pick up the Fitbit Ace, Alta and Ionic for discounted prices. The Fitbit Ace is priced at $79.95, about $20 off. Which is a fitness tracker designed for kids, allowing kids to become more active, instead of just sitting in front of the TV all day long. Then there is the Fitbit Alta, which has about the same functionality, and it's also priced at $79.95. Finally there is the Fitbit Ionic which starts at $249, with the Adidas edition coming in at $279, that's good for $50 off of each version. The Fitbit Ionic is a smartwatch from Fitbit that comes with a bunch of apps and watch faces. It is basically meant for the gym junkies that do a lot of running and working out.

If you've been looking to get your hands on the Fire TV 4K, but $69 is a bit too much for you, well Amazon has a great deal for you. It is allowing you to trade-in your existing Roku, Apple TV or Chromecast and get up to a $35 credit towards a Fire TV. Once you've traded in your device, you can pick up the new Fire TV Stick 4K (that officially launches on October 31), the Fire TV 4K or the Fire TV Cube. If you're looking to pick up the Fire TV Stick 4K, you could get it almost for free, depending on the device that you trade-in. Obviously a newer Roku or Apple TV is going to net a bigger credit, and $35 is nothing to sneeze at.

Google's latest smartphone, the Pixel 3 is also available now. After being in pre-order status for about a week. Verizon is the only carrier selling the phone, once again. And Verizon has a pretty sweet deal on the Pixel 3. If you buy a Pixel 3 through Verizon, you can get a second one for free, or "on us" as carriers like to say. This does require at least one new line of service. So you can add a line to your account and take advantage of this offer. You can buy a Pixel 3 XL and a Pixel 3, or two of the same phone. But the important thing to note here is that Verizon is only giving you $799 credit, so if you purchase two Pixel 3 XL's, you are getting $799 off of that phone via monthly bill credits. That effectively brings the price down to about $130, which is still a great price on the Pixel 3 XL.


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. It's also important to note that Amazon and other retailers, tend to fluctuate their prices. Whether that is to price match other retailers or to undercut the competition. There are some really good deals down below, and you'll want to pick these up before they are gone. You can check out Amazon's latest lightning deals (which are only available for a few hours) right here, there's plenty to take advantage of today.
