The original Galaxy Gear wasn't for everyone (particularly people who don't own a Samsung phone). It also suffered from limited app compatibility and a quirky interface. Its biggest drawback, though, was the price: $299. That's a lot to ask for a smartwatch that only does a handful of things. But what about $99? That's how much Best Buy is currently selling refurbished models of the device for as part of today's deal of the day.
Looking for a high-end Galaxy Note tablet that doesn't cost over seven hundred freakin' dollars?

The 16GB version is $193.99, a bit less than $50 off the retail price, and the 32GB version is $244.99, $25 off of the new model.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 typically costs you roughly $500, but Walmart's currently willing to part with one online for around $400 instead. Sure, there's a catch. It's refurbished. But if that doesn't bother you, you can get a 16GB version for $399.99. The 32GB option is going for just $30 more. Both are available in black and white.
To make this deal even better, you can get $21.50 off the 32GB option if you pay using a Discover card.
The newer Samsung tablets like the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 might have better technical hardware than the year-old Note 8.0, but they've also got some sky-high prices. If you want a good deal on a mid-size tablet with a stylus and digitizer, Groupon has a refurbished model of the Galaxy Note 8.0 for just $229.99. The deal includes free shipping, but it's only available for another five days and change.
Update: The seller raised the price up to $199.99. Time to look elsewhere.
The 2013 Nexus 7 is about 6 months into its lifecycle and that means the refurbished units are making their way out to the deal sites. Just a few days ago Woot had both 16GB and 32GB models on sale for $169.99 and $199.99, respectively. Today, we have a seller on eBay with the 16GB model for only $159.99.
Looking for a rock-solid 7-inch tablet that runs the latest version of Android? Woot has the best deal we've seen yet on Google and Asus' Nexus 7 2013, so long as you're OK with a refurbished model.

You're not going to find a better price on a tablet with these specifications - the 1080p screen alone would push other hardware past the $250 mark, with the exception of the Kindle Fire HDX.
The holiday season saw a ton of tablets dip below the coveted $100 mark, but there weren't many of them that were actually worth even that low price. But today you can pick up the 32GB version of the original Tegra-powered Nexus 7 from Newegg for a cool c-note... assuming you're OK with both a refurbished model and a rebate in the form of a $50 prepaid Visa card.
That's still a pretty good deal if you're willing to jump through the hoops.
