Deal: Save $50 on the Fitbit Versa if you’re willing to jump through some hoops

Fitbit Versa

Even though it launched less than a month ago, the Fitbit Versa can be yours for at least $50 off — as long as you’re okay with putting in a bit of work.

Spotted by CNET, the discount is only available at Macy’s. The store still displays the Versa’s regular $200 price tag on its website, but that changes once you sign up for Macy’s emails. Once you do that, wait 10 to 15 minutes for the 25-percent-off code to arrive in your inbox. From there, apply the code when you check out and the Versa should be available for $150.

Keep in mind that sales tax could still apply to your purchase, though shipping is free. Also, you can get an additional six-percent rebate from cashback service Ebates for Macy’s purchases. The rebate knocks the Versa’s price down to $141.

At that price, the Versa is dangerously close to impulse-buy territory. Fitbit’s smartwatch already undercut the 38mm Apple Watch Series 3, but the $141 price tag places an almost-$200 difference between itself and Apple’s offering.

Whether that gulf is enough to consider the Versa over the Apple Watch and other smartwatches is a different question. As we learned in our review of the Versa, Fitbit’s offering is not for you if you need a powerful smartwatch. However, if you are a fan of Fitbit’s ecosystem, are not keen on spending $270 for the Ionic, and want a smartwatch that does not die after just one day of use, get the Versa.
