What if there was a device that could tell you how well you slept, how hard you exercised, and how many miles you walked in a given day? Well, actually there is. The Fitbit Force allows you to track distance, calories, steps, and more in the palm of your hand—or rather, your wrist. Oh, and yes, unlike the other FitBit products out there, this one also lets you check the time. In fact, you can say the Fitbit Force is your premium fitness watch.
Of course, this is far from being a run-of-the-mill device, so the retailer price comes to $129.95.
Hack To Slim The Price
The “Killer Hack,” or best discount method, for the Fitbit Force involves using the code “Bloggers15off” at the Bestbuy.com checkout in order to receive 15% off the purchase. This is not only a good deal but it’s quite easy to do. Not all hacks involve just a code at checkout.
You’ll find store membership cards or credit card deals being the general way to hack. Case in point, if you own a Target Credit Card, which goes by the name of REDcard, you can buy the Fitbit Force for 5% off, or $6.50 off.

However, there are also hacks that can only help you if you shop online. The cash back website TopCashBack.com is one place to go. You will have to sign up, but they don’t ask for much more than your name and email. From there, find your way to Brookstone.com and redeem 8% cash back.
Online Rewards Mall Hacks
A common hack across multiple products involves the Discover card, and in the case of the Fitbit Force, you go through their website to the online rewards mall called ShopDiscover. Now you go onto Brookstone.com to get 15% cash back on the Fitbit Force. With a savings of just under $20, you’re looking at a $110.46 Fitbit Force.
Another Discover card hack involves going to ShopDiscover.com and then onto Walgreens.com to get 10% cash back. However, in the event that you don’t own a Discover card, there’s another online rewards mall site that can help. Although lesser-known, Ebates.com will get you 8% cash back if you from their website onto Walgreens.com and order there.
FitBit of Advice
The holidays will pass and go before you know it. To get the best Fitbit Force deal out there, it’s recommended to go to the stores or check online now, especially for something this popular. In fact, its popularity is evident on its product site fitbit.com where there’s a note of the Force being on backorder and unable to be delivered by Christmas Eve. However, that shouldn’t stop you. The device that can help you fulfill fitness challenges is out there. Check retail stores and online, then hack and track your steps—and pretty soon, the FitBit will track them for you.
