Samsung’s Galaxy S21/+/Ultra refurb Android smartphones start from $299
Woot is now discounting a selection of certified refurbished Samsung Android smartphones starting at $119. Shipping is free for Prime members, with a $6 delivery fee applying otherwise. Our top pick is the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 128GB at $439. Down from its original $1,200 price tag, this is a new all-time low at well below our previous $804 mention from back in the spring, bringing $761 in savings attached.
Even as all eyes are on Samsung for the new Galaxy S22 series, today’s discount provides some savings on one of the best smartphones around right now. Samsung’s Galaxy S21 Ultra may not be the latest but arrives with a 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2x 120Hz display at the center of the experience. A Snapdragon 888 SoC backed with 12GB of RAM powers its quad-sensor system, and S Pen support completes the package. You can dive into our hands-on review for a closer look.
Lenovo’s $379 IdeaPad Duet 5 Chromebook sports a detachable keyboard
Best Buy is now offering the Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 5 Chromebook 128GB for $379. Normally selling for $499, today’s offer amounts to $120 in savings while delivering the third-best discount to date at within $4 of our previous mention from back over the back-to-school shopping season in August.
This time around, Lenovo’s latest Chromebook is headlined by a 13.3-inch 1080p OLED display, which pairs with its hybrid, detachable keyboard design. Everything comes powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 7c processor, 64GB of storage, and 4GB of RAM. Onboard Wi-Fi 6 support pairs with dual USB-C ports to round out the portable workstation.

Fitbit’s all-new Sense 2 Smartwatch sees very first discount
Amazon is now offering the very first chance to save on the just-released Fitbit Sense 2 Advanced Health and Fitness Smartwatch. Dropping down to $200, this is a new all-time low from the usual $300 going rate. As the latest flagship wearable from Fitbit, the new Sense 2 improves on the original by packing some new health monitoring tech into a slimmer wrist-friendly design than before. Alongside all of the other ways it has been able to keep tabs on fitness, there’s now a stress-monitoring EDA sensor, which joins the built-in GPS, heart rate sensor, and sleep monitoring tech. There’s still a six-day battery life as well – you can read all about in our launch coverage.
Beats Flex Earbuds drop to $40
Woot is now discounting the Beats Flex Wireless Earbuds to $40. Normally fetching $70, like you’d currently pay at Amazon, today’s offer amounts to the second-best price of the year at $30 off. This comes within $5 of the all-time low set back in September, and is the first markdown since, as well.
Ready to handle everything from casual listening to tagging along on all of those end of fall workouts, Beats Flex sport an around-neck design that packs an inline microphone with playback controls. Notably, you’ll also find Apple’s W1 chip which allows for fast pairing alongside up to 12-hours of playback on a single charge. Added water- and sweat-resistance are a nice touch, too. We reviewed the experience back when they launched, which offers some additional insight on what to expect.
Fitbit Versa 2 smartwatch hits $99
Amazon is offering the Fitbit Versa 2 Fitness Tracker for $99. Normally $150 at Amazon, today’s deal matches the all-time low that we’ve tracked. This fitness tracker is a great way to keep tabs on your steps, sleep, and workouts this fall and winter.
With Amazon Alexa built-in, this smartwatch also packs the ability to get “quick news and information, check the weather, set timers and alarms, control your smart home,” and much more. On top of all that, the heart rate tracker pairs with the sleep monitoring that we already mentioned and even gets as detailed as figuring out how long you slept and how restful the sleep was with a sleep score. You also won’t need to plug it in for nearly a week thanks to its 6-day battery life.
