TL;DR: As of June 10, the Samsung Galaxy Buds are on sale on Amazon for only $89.99 — a $40 savings (and their highest discount ever). But it’s a Deal of the Day, so you’ll need to hurry.
ICYMI, Samsung’s first-gen Galaxy Buds dropped from $129.99 to just $99.99 at Best Buy earlier this month — which, at the time, was their biggest discount ever and an exact match of their Black Friday pricing. It had us wondering: As far as deals go, does it get any better than that?
Spoiler alert: Yes. Yes it does.
If you held out on buying a pair of those wireless earbuds, your patience — or pertinacity, perhaps? — is paying off today: Amazon just lowered the price of the Galaxy Buds even further to a mere $89.99, or $40 off their suggested retail price. By our calculations, that’s an unprecedented 31% savings.
The only catch is that Amazon’s listed this offer as its Deal of the Day, which means it won’t be available after midnight tonight (Wednesday, June 10). Translation: If you really, really want to lock in this all-time-low pricing, act now or forever hold your peace.

The first-gen Galaxy Buds are less than a year old at this point, and while their successors are pretty rad, they’re still a really solid pair of wireless earbuds themselves and a great first-gen AirPods alternative (especially if you don’t want to shell out for noise-canceling tech). Capable of easy Bluetooth pairing with both Android and iOS devices, they come with an Ambient sound mode that lets you tune in to some of the sounds in your environment — perfect for those of us who are still working from home with kids, roommates, or pets. And once it’s time to head back to the office, their six-hour battery life (13 if you take advantage of the included wireless charging case) ensures multiple commutes’ worth of uninterrupted podcasts, music, or audiobooks.
Still not sure if the Galaxy Buds are right for you? You’re in luck — some of our other favorite wireless earbuds are on sale right now across several retailers:
