I don't know about these mystery deals, but I figured I would post for those that like a gamble!

It doesn't say it's refurbished until you add to the cart.

I needed to get one to replace my jawbone that broke and couldn't decide which to get. Now I don't have to decide.

Run far away! You will achieve better fitness running away from this deal than suffering from the crushing blow of deceit delivered by Groupon inventory that no one wants. I was cheated out of $20 once for a mystery box. The value was guaranteed for much more. When I got the box and opened it up, I knew it was bull crap. Researching the price history, I found that it had sold in a Groupon deal for $12. Their customer service could care less. Run far away!

done them through woot and one of the other deal sites and it is always worthless stuff that I would never buy.
*edit: checked my email, the other was from JBL; they sent me 3 off-brand MP3 players with 256mb storage that I wouldn't gift to an enemy - total crap.

I got 3 fitness mystery boxes from Groupon on a previous offer. 2 boxes had 2 items each (Bowflex Heart rate watch and Jawbone) - good value for the price paid. The jawbone alone was worth the price of the Mystery Box, and the BowFlex i gave as a gift. In the 3rd box I got a nice surprise - a high end Garmin. All good on my end.

I checked out the current offer at $20 and on checkout the Refurbished has been removed. I am in for another 3 boxes!

I bought a normal mystery box a few years ago. Don't remember what the stated value was (can't find it on Groupon) but I ended up with 10 bags of Sriracha popcorn. One of the bags had exploded in transit (the box was pretty dinged up and was completely filled with popcorn) and so I had a mess on my hands. Complained to Groupon and they refunded the purchase. Gave away the intact popcorn as it wasn't terribly spicy, or good.

My guess is most of these will be either the Bowflex or Sketchers models, which sell on Amazon for $17.00 and $11.00, respectively.

https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_s...flex+boost

"Other Brands" suggests a lot of generic knockoffs. I've also seen a lot of the older Schosche HRMs for sale lately, and they're good, high quality products, but don't work with any apps currently, so they're essentially worthless...Schosche makes fantastic products, but their older tech isn't supported by anyone, kind of a shame. I'd be willing to bet the bulk of these shipments will be from these categories.

Garmin makes great stuff (Jawbone as well, but I've only used Garmin products), but I'd see this deal appealing to the gamblers in our midst, and the odds of "winning" are slim.

My guess would be this is mostly a way to offload a lot of unwanted gear with a few "better" items (most likely a handful of very old models of discontinued Garmin and Jawbone units) thrown in. A refurbished older model Garmin doesn't cost much more, and it's a damn sight better of an option than gambling with this deal. Check Ebay for a refurbed Garmin if you really want a good quality fitness tracker on the cheap. I'd recommend this for not much more:

Or this, for a little bit more, with the ANT stick:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Garmin-Vi...4d4261da8b

Appreciate the heads up, but I don't think this is such a SD. No TU, but rep for sharing a fitness deal, thanks, OP.

Previous similar deals didn't seem to receive good ratings (though the price might be higer back then).
Thanks for posting, but I'm not biting this time!
