If you thought that $70 discount offered directly by Samsung
on the popular Gear S3
smartwatch was cool, wait until you see how much money Costco members can save, undoubtedly for a limited time only. The Android and iOS-compatible wearable device is available right now at the ridiculously low price of $109.99, down from $299.99 "typically" and $229.99 as part of the most recent Samsung.com and Best Buy deals.
Keep in mind that you're looking at brand-new, unused, and untouched units here backed by a standard manufacturer's warranty, not "open box" devices sold through eBay for $160 not long ago
and currently listed as out of stock. Costco also beats Amazon's killer bargain from last week
, although the latter e-commerce giant can actually price match the former chain of membership-only warehouse clubs today. On the not so bright side of things, the Gear S3 needs anywhere between 1 and 2 months to ship from Amazon, which probably means inventory is running low.
A number of Slickdeals forum users
are also reporting the exact same promotion as valid in brick and mortar Walmart stores, but your mileage may vary and stocks are definitely limited. If you can find the Gear S3 Frontier
sold at 110 bucks brand-new, you really shouldn't think twice about pulling the trigger, even if you don't necessarily need a smartwatch. Yes, the deal is that
After all, age is just a number for an intelligent timepiece
with a beautiful 1.3
-inch AMOLED display in tow, a convenient rotating bezel, a built-in heart rate monitor, standalone GPS functionality, Samsung Pay support, IP68 water-resistant construction, and a decent 380 mAh battery purportedly good for keeping the lights on up to 4 days between charges.
Costco, Amazon, and Walmart's massive $190 discount makes the Samsung Gear
S3 significantly cheaper than the Galaxy Watch Active
, which comes without a rotating bezel. At $109.99, the powerful smartwatch also trudges deep into activity tracker territory, undercutting the likes of the Fitbit Charge 3
with a much cooler design and a lengthier spec sheet.
