Samsung Gear S3 Frontier $269.99 at Costco Warehouse Only

-2 Deal Score
13,083 Views
I was at my local Costco and they had the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier for $319.99. - $50 Manufacturer rebate valid till 10/09/17 for a final sale price of $269.99 plus tax.

Lowest recent price I have seen on this wearable and with Costco's return policy it was an easy decision to make the purchase.

Costco Item #1183279 for those who want to check stock at their local store.

Is this the LTE model with a cellular connection?I have the gear S2 and the battery life really sucks, on brightness level 1 and that's with just telling time using Bluetooth, cellular is auto on only when out of phone range. Love my LG urbane though, too bad no speaker or calls on urbane

Bluetooth only. Ambient screen, doesn't matter the brightness destroys battery life on pretty much all current-gen wearables. LTE/cellular makes it even worse. Cell models are still $350-400 (which is absurd).

If you are referring to Costco Conceirge that extends manufacturer warranty to 2 years, No it does not. I believe it has a 90 day Electronics Return policy as it the policy had been printed on the receipt (although the policy does not specifically state wearbles or smartwatches).

No built-in in LTE. The device needs to paired to your cellphone for data services.

Newish model was just anounced - Gear Sport https://www.theverge.com/2017/8/3...s-ifa-2017

But it is not a Gear S4. Gear S4 will likely be sometime mid next year.

Thanks for the link. That is exactly what I had purchased minus the $50 manufacturer discount.

These have been down to $220 before... with new models on the horizon, they should be dipping below $200, right? I don't see this as being a deal, especially when it's not even the LTE version.
