Garmin released a nice sale of $100 off their high end Garmin Fenix 5 watches. I owned one for about a year and absolutely loved it! Not only was it a great GPS watch for my running (but it works great for biking, swimming, hiking, and many more activities) but it was a great everyday watch with smartphone notifications and activity tracking.
Best Deals on the Garmin Fenix 5 Watches
Now that I am using the Garmin Forerunner 645 Music, I can tell you the thing I miss the most from the Garmin Fenix 5 was the battery life. It was crazy how long that watch lasted! It would go about a week with everyday runs and daily wearing. The Garmin 645 doesn’t get half of that!
The Differences Between Garmin Fenix 5 Models
If you want the top option, it would be the 5X with the stainless steel band! Oh, the Sapphire models also come with a second band, which normally retail for $50 so that is a nice deal!
The 5S has a 42mm face, the 5 has a 47mm face and the 5X has a 51mm face. If you do not mind the larger size, the Garmin Fenix 5X is really the best deal since it has built-in maps (no need for the phone or an app) and is the same price as the others.
Anyway, if you ever wanted the Garmin Fenix 5 but it was a little too pricey, Garmin has made it a little more affordable. Using these tips, you can actually get it for less than they advertise!
Yes, that is a swim store, but they have a couple of things going for them. First of all is a Amex Offer. It gives $5 back on $25 and that works on gift cards! But, you must have the gift card code sent to an address that has never signed up for the Swimoutlet newsletter to get the best deal!
You can stack gift cards so grab a couple before moving on to the next step.
Using that same (new – to Swimoutlet at least) e-mail, go ahead here and sign-up for the Swimoutlet.com e-mail. They will send you a 10% off code within minutes. That code works on Garmin watches! That is huge because they already have the $100 discount applied!
So, the same watch I used to have, the Garmin Fenix 5 Sapphire, can be had for $494 – before gift cards (and that is normally $699).
Activejunky has 6% cashback for Swimoutlet.com as well.
Next up is eBay. The Garmin Fenix 5 watches on eBay can be had from legitimate, Garmin authorized dealers (like Clever Training) for the same $100 discount. Plus, you can earn eBay Bucks and use eBay gift cards.
If you want to make it even sweeter, through the end of today, you can add a Google Home Mini (regularly $49) to your cart with code PFREEMINI and get the Google Home Mini for free! Check them out here – white and black.
Now that is just extra, so if you wanted a Google Home Mini and you need some more eBay Bucks (or have a targeted eBay Bucks deal with your account), this could be a good way to go.
Also, make sure you check out this one. This is like the top end of the Garmin Fenix 5 watches – the Garmin Fenix 5X Sapphire with the stainless steel band. This normally goes for $899 but you can get it (refurb) for $649. But, be aware that you could also just but it new for $699 so weight that out. I have owned a few Garmin refurb devices and they perform beautifully.
However, I would only opt for this route if you have some eBay gift cards or eBay Bucks to spend as the SwimOutlet deal is much better.
PayPal + Chase Freedom
If you haven’t already maxed out your Chase Freedom 5X category spend for this quarter, then don’t forget to pay for your watch with PayPal and use your Chase Freedom! That will help you in your quest to max out the $1,500 in spending which, essentially, will give you another 5% back.
