By now you know we love our tech devices (usually more than people) and we love all things Sonos, but our tried-and-true speakers and headphones brand is, clearly, Bose. Not only is their sound quality unmatched, but they’re becoming more and more affordable. A total win-win. And if you haven’t tried out their new audio sunglasses, well, you’re missing out.
The first time we owned anything from Bose was actually a birthday gift from our sister. It was the original Soundlink. We don’t even know if they sell that anymore, but we really felt like royalty. Or Oprah. Either way. All we know is that it was a big deal and now it’s really our own gold-standard when it comes to affordable sound…even though some things are still kind of expensive.
While we’re sure everyone knows about their wireless bluetooth speakers, we’re not sure everyone out there knows about their audio frames (basically sunglasses with sound) and their new noise-masking Sleepbuds (finally you don’t have to suffer through snoring anymore!). And due to the odd times we’ve all been living in lately where everyone is basically working from home and learning from home, they even have some new items for the ultimate WFH setup. They continue to move the needle and keep us wanting more.
There are actually a ton of places to buy official Bose merch. In the past our go-to has been via Nordstrom, online over at Best Buy, our new fave B&H and, of course, on Amazon (we love 2-day shipping) but, quite honestly, when we’re purchasing some of their more expensive stuff we prefer to shop them direct because we know we’ll always be able to get any help we need from their top-notch customer service team.
So we def recommend to check them out. And whether you’re looking to buy yourself something or looking for a killer gift idea, they really have a ton of amazing choices to choose from. Sound on!
The Deal With the Deals:
Believe it or not, Bose actually does have deals and sales taking place outside of just Black Friday, although their Black Friday sale is pretty impressive. On any given day you can usually find some deals anywhere from $50 – $100 off select top sellers direct from their site. Check out all their official deals here.
And if you’re willing to go the refurbished route (don’t worry they’re certified) you can really save some cash there. Check out their Outlet sale here!
To Gift or Not to Gift:
Just about anything they carry will make a really unique gift, so we highly recommend it. We actually list them in most of our own gift guides and our readers love it. Here’s a quick list of some gift ideas we’d recommend and some people who you may not even think will love it:
- Teen Boy – Go with any of these sports headphones/earbuds – See it here
- Mother’s Day – Go with their noise-masking SleepBuds – See it here
- Father’s Day – Go with these home theater sound system kits – See it here
- Graduation – Go with these noice-cancelling headphones – See it here
The Deal With Promo Codes:
Short answer: No. It’s really the worst, right? So, Bose doesn’t have coupons or promo codes, at least not ones they give out to us or other websites. It’s ok because we don’t have any here either. However, there will be some promo offers from time to time where students, teachers, first line responders can get a discount. We’ve also seen that they do have free shipping with minimum purchase ($50) and free return shipping, which is always key.
Either way, definitely sign up for their emails to be the first to know about any of their upcoming sales, promotions, and new product releases. Totally worth it!
