If you haven't used your 25% off Google Express coupon from T-Mobile (given out on 26th June 2018) this is a steal. Use that code and get this sound bar for $127.87 including tax. Coupon code valid until July 9th 2018. If not then first time users can get this for $137. Either way a good deal for this soundbar.

YMMV because:
1. Either this item is always low in stock (sold by Target) or very popular but it goes OOS very often on Google Express (happened twice with me).
2. You might have already used your 25% off T-Mobile coupon

this is a super old model from 2015. the sb3821-d6 came next and added smartcast streaming, now the newer replacement sb3621-e8 is available and is much better than the model you posted. the sb3621-e8 is an editors choice from cnet (who gave it 5/5 starts) and has been available for $99 new many times since release at both sams and costco. this is not a good deal on a very dated vizio model, especially when newer vizio models are rated higher and available cheaper.

Are newer models really rated higher? Among the ones under $200, apart from CNET, I've found almost every website rating this one as one of the best. Surely D6 and SB3621 are newer but are they better than this one? I myself have been looking for one under $200 and often get confused as to which one to pick between 3821 and 3621

i have owned the older 3821-c6 which you have posted and now own a couple of the newer vizio 3621-e8. the 3621 soundbar is slimmer so it doesn't block the lower portion of your tv or remote sensor and i think overall is sounds a bit better than the older 3821. the sub is much nicer as well on the 3621 and sounds tighter and not as boomy as the older 3821 model sub. overall, if you're going to spend $100-$130 and want a 2.1 vizio system, i would definitely choose the newer slim-line 3621 over either of the older 38" models.

Thanks for the input. I am looking for something slightly heavy in the lows (bassy) so do you think I should go for the 38" model since that is bass heavy or 36" since it is newer?

both tend to be a bit bass heavy if you don't tune the sub level down. even with everything tuned to flat right out of the box, they are both very bassy. i definitely recommend the newer slimmer sb3621-e8 based on looks and profile, as it looks alot cleaner if positioned in front of your tv on a stand. my other concern is that the 2015 model you are looking at has been out of production for years now, so wouldn't take a risk on the older electronics inside lasting.

costco has the newer vizio right now for $129, plus a small fee if you're not a member. it does hit $99 occasionally, but hasn't in a few months. definitely still worth $129.
