Woot open-box tech sale

Keeping up with the latest tech can be incredibly expensive, especially if you have multiple devices in your home that you'd need to upgrade annually. If you want to save some cash, you can often find solid deals on previous-gen models or by going for a refurbished or open-box device, and Woot is currently running a massive sale that offers you the opportunity to do just that. 

The sale features a huge array of essential tech products like phones, smartwatches, tablets and laptops with models from the last few years on offer as well as some of the very latest variants. The items are all offered in open-box condition, with some simply being customer returns or ex-display stock, though some are refurbished or offered with cosmetic imperfections. Be sure to read the item description carefully so you know exactly what you're getting. If you can live with a slightly older product or a pre-owned device, there are some significant savings to be found. We've pulled out a few of our favorite deals below.

Samsung's latest and greatest smartwatch, the Galaxy Watch 5, is on sale from $207 -- close to $100 off its retail price. The more premium Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is also featured in the sale from $359. Both are offered in new open-box condition.

Up to $93 off

This 2021 Chromebook offers a 13.3-inch touchscreen with 360-degree hinge and is a powerful option with its AMD Ryzen 5 3500C processor, 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD storage. This particular configuration would have been $500 brand new, but it's almost half off open-box.

Save $228

The Nest Learning Thermostat is Google's premier thermostat and one of our favorite smart thermostats on the market. The Learning Thermostat works with Google Assistant and Alexa, and learns your schedule and makes adjustments to your heating and cooling settings accordingly. It very rarely goes on sale this low, so this refurb deal is worth jumping on. 


Take your pick from a selection of Apple Watch Series 7 models in either Grade A refurbished or "scratch and dent" condition and save big on the previous-gen device. Though it's a 2021 model, it's still more than capable today and not all that different to the the latest Series 8 model for most use cases. 

$50 or more off

Not sold on this year's Galaxy S23 Ultra upgrades? You can go for last year's S22 version and save big. This phone still goes for over $1,000 brand new but it's just over $700 in Woot's sale as a refurbished device. 

Save $287

Want to get started with a mesh Wi-Fi system or need an additional Eero router to expand you existing system's range? Though it has since been replaced by a Wi-Fi 6 version, this Eero Pro model still sells for $160 brand new, but it's under $100 in new open-box condition at Woot right now. 

Save $65

There are many more items available, so it's well worth perusing the entire sale. Be warned, though, that supplies are limited and devices could sell out fast.
