Samsung’s all-new Galaxy S21 FE sees first cash discount

Amazon is now offering the all-new unlocked Samsung Galaxy S21 FE 5G Android Smartphone for $600. Marking the very first cash discount we’ve seen, today’s offer amounts to $100 in savings from the usual $700 going rate and is a new all-time low. This technically matches the value of the gift card offer we saw on launch day, but without having to redeem credit on a future purchase to cash-in on the savings. 

Delivering a series of flagship specs in a more affordable package, the Galaxy S21 FE 5G arrives as Samsung’s most recent handset. Everything is centered around a 6.4-inch AMOLED 1080p 120Hz screen. Underneath, you’re looking at an optical fingerprint sensor that pairs with NFC and IP68 water-resistance, with the S21 FE coming in one of four different colorways. You can get a closer look in our hands-on review which details what to expect from the budget-friendly handset.

ecobee SmartThermostats see well-timed winter price cuts 

Amazon is currently offering its SmartThermostat for $199. Normally selling for $249, today’s offer amounts to a match of our previous mention from the end of 2021 at $50 off, and comes within $1 of the Black Friday mention. 

If you’ve been keeping tabs on the weather as of late and noticing freezing temperatures in the morning and spring-like conditions come the afternoon, ecobee’s SmartThermostat is a notable way to more intelligently warm your home. Arriving with Assistant support out of the box, ecobee SmartThermostat packs a touchscreen display to pair with all of the voice control and scheduling features. There’s also the bundled temperature sensor to help keep your home comfortable this winter with hyperlocal readings. Dive into our hands-on review.

Enjoy a 7.6-inch folding screen with Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 3

Amazon is now offering the unlocked Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 5G 256GB Android Smartphone for $1,547. Normally fetching $1,800, today’s offer is $53 under our previous mention, the best price since Black Friday, and amounts to $253 in savings. 

Delivering Samsung’s latest flagship smartphone, the recent foldable arrives with a 7.6-inch Infinity Flex display on the inside and a secondary 6.2-inch Dynamic AMOLED screen on the cover. Given we are talking about the highest-end smartphone in Samsung’s lineup, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 rocks a Snapdragon 888 which is supplemented by 256GB of storage, 12GB of RAM, and a three-sensor camera around back. You can dive into our hands-on review for a closer look.

Samsung’s new white 27-inch M5 Smart Monitor falls to $220

Amazon now offers the Samsung 27-inch M5 Smart AirPlay 2 Monitor (2021) for $220. Normally fetching $280, today’s offer is matching the second-best price to date at $60 off. This is also the lowest since Black Friday, where it went for $20 less.

As one of the latest additions to the Samsung M series monitor lineup, its recent release arrives with all of the same smart functionality as before but in a new white finish. Everything is centered around a 27-inch 1080p panel which pairs with built-in streaming media access, AirPlay 2, and more. Onboard Bluetooth lets you pair a mouse and keyboard right to the M5 monitor, and a pair of dual HDMI ports round out the package for hooking up your own devices.

Powerbeats Pro on sale from $169

Amazon now offers the Apple Powerbeats Pro Wireless Earbuds starting at $169 in a variety of styles. Originally fetching $249, several colorways are now marked down for the first time in months from the more recent $200 price tag in order to mark the best discounts since Black Friday. 

Sure the new Beats Fit Pro have taken the spotlight as of late, but today’s deal makes the Powerbeats Pro even more enticing for those who aren’t interested in the brand’s latest. Centered around an entirely wireless design, these sport Beats earbuds rock up to 24-hours of playback and a workout-ready form-factor. Thanks to Apple’s H1 chip, you’ll be able to enjoy features like Hey Siri, quick pairing, longer range, and more. Get all of the details in our hands-on review.
