Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch

In the hunt for a last-minute Valentine's Day or Just-Because-It's-Friday gift? You're in luck, friend, because today a number of gadgets have received some pretty notable price cuts. Here's the current list of discounts:

  • Samsung Galaxy Gear is part of a new AT&T promotion. The big blue carrier says that starting today, customers that purchase a Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy S 4, Galaxy S 4 Active or Galaxy Mega can pick up a Galaxy Gear for $100 off. This deal is also available to consumers that've already purchased one of the aforementioned devices from AT&T. To take advantage of this promo, you'll need to head to an AT&T store.
  • Samsung Galaxy Gear is also available from Best Buy in six different colors. Normally $299.99, the Black and Mocha Gray versions are now available for $249.99, while the Rose Gold, Oatmeal Beige, Wild Orange and Lime Green colors have had their prices cut to $149.99.
  • AT&T is cutting the price of select Beats accessories by $20 when customers sign up for a new Beats Music subscription in an AT&T store. This offer is available starting today and will run through April 24.
  • LG G Pad 8.3 is available from Newegg for $249.99. The product page currently lists the G Pad 8.3 at $279.99, and customers can enter the promo code FWPD213B to shave $30 off of that price.

Samsung is expected to unveil a new version of its Galaxy Gear smartwatch later this month at its Unpacked 2014 Episode 1 event, but for folks looking to get in on the smartwatch craze on the cheap, these deals on the original Galaxy Gear are a pretty good way to do that. Meanwhile, the LG G Pad 8.3 boasts a respectable spec sheet that includes an 8.3-inch 1080p display and quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, and this sale price of $250 makes the G Pad 8.3 respectable option for anyone in the market for a small tablet.

Are you thinking about taking advantage of any of these sales?
