And now you can get it get a great deal on it.
Samsung and Best Buy currently sell new Gear S3 for $300, but Best Buy is also offering refurbished models (Geek Squad certified) for just $185. These refurbished models are only available in black and come with a 90-day return policy.

LG C7P OLED TV
Save $300: The C7P is LG’s flagship OLED TV. It has the same stunning 4K picture quality as the brand’s high-end W7 OLED, just without the wallpaper-thin design and extremely high price tag. We also selected it as one of the best OLED TVs in 2017. It’s an excellent TV to consider if you’re looking to make the jump to OLED, and eBay is currently offering a 55-inch C7P for $1,399 — that’s $300 less than what it’s going for on Best Buy. If you’re looking for a bigger TV, you can buy the 65-inch C7P on eBay for $2,099, which is also significantly less than what it’s going for on Best Buy ($2,600) and Amazon ($2,597).
The $280 U.S. Special Forces-Grade Alpha Lite Pullover Is 60% Off
Save $167: Made of weather-resistant Japanese ripstop nylon and assembled in North America, Coldsmoke’s Alpha Lite pullover is filled with insulation “originally developed for U.S. Special Forces.” It’s a slimmer-fitting (sizing up is recommended) shirt that’ll work as a mid- or outer layer. I’ve been eyeing this guy for awhile, and now that it’s dipped well below half its original price, it may be time to act. I’m especially partial to the colorway — the dark navy, black and cream combo is unique enough to catch my eye every time. — Nick Caruso
