How to decide if it’s worth it

Black Friday isn’t the only time Fitbits goes on sale. In the past, retailers have drastically reduced prices on other shopping vacations, such as Amazon Prime Day. But with Black Friday deals generating some of the lowest prices of the year – and supply chain setback looming inventory levels – buying now might be your best bet to get the Fitbit deal you want. Also keep an eye out for other smartwatches and trackers. You can find good sales on comparable brands.

If you are considering a Kohl’s offer, note that Kohl’s Cash is only redeemable at a later date. Nonetheless, the bonus reward could be decisive if you shop at Kohl’s again in the near future.

How to Budget a Fitbit

Before you buy, add up how much of your discretionary income or savings you’re willing to spend on holiday shopping this year. Track your spending and make sure the cost of a Fitbit won’t take you over the limit.

Fitbits can be expensive, but you don’t have to pay full price for one. Older models and those with more basic functionality come with smaller price tags. To remember look for offers regardless of which Fitbit you buy.
