Not to sound like your mom, but have you finished your taxes yet? No rush, obviously: You’ve got until Wednesday, April 15 to tackle your mountain of paperwork and file your annual return with the IRS (or pay some poor soul at H&R Block to do so for you).
But keep in mind that filing sooner rather than later means you’ll likely get your precious tax refund sooner rather than later, which, according to Uncle Sam, comes to about $2,800 per household on average.
If you’ve already received your refund check (jealous), don’t let it burn a hole in your pocket — instead, head on over to Walmart and put it to good use during the big box store’s massive Samsung savings event. The sale features gigantic discounts on all sorts of gadgets made by the South Korean tech giant (including smartphones, tablets, TVs, monitors, wearables, and home audio equipment), the likes of which we haven’t seen since last Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
Here’s a quick rundown of the best deals available:
Gadgets: Score a fancy new Samsung TV for up to half off
Samsung’s 65-inch Class Q60R Series display is an award-winning QLED TV that boasts Quantum Dot technology for 100% color volume and an Ambient Mode that helps it blend in seamlessly with the rest of your home decor. It normally retails for $1,799.99, but Walmart’s got it on sale for just $897.99. Get it here.
The 43-inch Class NU6900 TV from Samsung (pictured above) is an LED display with HDR10+ formatting that adjusts the picture quality so that darker scenes are easy to see. It’s up for grabs at Walmart for only $248, down $251.99 from its $499.99 MSRP. Get it here.
Gadgets: Save 37% on select Samsung soundbars
Want to turn your living room into a home theater? Enhance your TV’s (probably crappy) built-in speakers by adding a soundbar to your setup. Both of the following Samsung models are 37% off right now:
The HW-R550 Soundbar (pictured above) is a two-channel soundbar that’s been equipped with Smart Sound technology, which allows it to auto-detect the type of content you’re watching and adjust its parameters accordingly — plus, it comes with a wireless subwoofer. It typically retails for $279.99, but you can score it from Walmart for a mere $177.99. Get it here.
Samsung’s three-channel HW-R60M/ZA Soundbar sports a dedicated center speaker whose sole purpose is to deliver clear dialogue, and it *also* comes with its own wireless subwoofer. It usually sells for $299.99, but Walmart’s got it on sale for just $187.99. Get it here.
Gadgets: Take 57% off one of Samsung’s curved monitors
Great for gaming and multitasking alike, Samsung’s 32-inch FHD curved monitor features a wide viewing angle, built-in dual 5W speakers, and an Eye Saver Mode that aims to lessen ocular fatigue. It usually retails for $349.99, but you can snag it on sale at Walmart right now for just $149.99 — that’s a savings of exactly $200. Get it here.
Gadgets: Save $102 on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6
Last year’s Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 is a slim, sleek tablet featuring a 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display, AKG-tuned quad speakers that support Dolby Atmos, and a speedy — and according to former Mashable tech reporter Ray Wong, it’s the iPad Pro’s “only serious competitor.”
Two different configurations of the Tab S6 are on sale at Walmart right now, and both of them come with an S Pen: You can score a 128GB model in either rose blush or mountain gray for just $547.99 (normally $649.99), or grab a 256GB model with a cloud blue finish for only $627.99 (normally $729.99). Either way, you’ll be saving $102 — shop them here.
Gadgets: Get $150 off Samsung’s latest smartphones
Offering gorgeous Dynamic AMOLED displays, ridiculously long battery lives, and best-in-class performance, it’s no wonder the Samsung Galaxy S10 line of smartphones won a coveted Mashable’s Choice Award upon its release last spring. Straight Talk (prepaid) Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10+ smartphones are all $150 off at Walmart right now, making them only $599, $749.99, and $849.99, respectively. Shop them here.
Gadgets: Save $30 on several Samsung wearables
Need a new smartwatch or fitness tracker? Walmart’s got you covered with savings of up to $30 on select Samsung wearables:
Released last fall, the Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 (pictured above) is a premium smartwatch whose sharp, modern-looking design, fitness- and workout-tracking tools, and smooth navigation make it a decent Apple Watch alternative. The 40mm model that comes with an aluminum finish usually retails for $279.99, but you can pick one up at Walmart in your choice of two colors (black or silver). Shop them here.
The Samsung Galaxy Fit is a durable activity tracker with a built-in heart rate monitor, a Full Color AMOLED Display, and a battery that lasts up to a week on a single charge. Normally $99.99, Walmart’s got it on sale for just $69. Get it here in either black or silver.
