[Best Buy] Jabra elite 85h $279 with free portable speaker - price error

www.engadget.com/amp/2019/06/12/jabra-elite-85h-review/
Heres a review comparing them to the Sony mx3 and bose qc 35, the tldr is they are not as good, but if you can get them at a discounted price like these it's worth it (qc35 cost around 350-400 new) and the sony's ste around $300

These wireless headphones include a free bluetooth speaker and are $70 off. Stacks with the coupon 13HRSONLY The error occurs cause it counts the "pre discount price" which includes the portable bluetooth speakers these are being discounted by $50 with the coupon instead of $25 despite being under $500.

How are these compared to the Sony XM3's?
From reviews I read, Sony beat them in everything except battery and the ability to connect to multiple devices. Though the Sony's also cost much much more.

I know it comes free but is that bluetooth speaker really worth $430?

The price error is that you get $50 off with the coupon instead of $25.
The coupon gives 25 off for 250-499 and 50 for 500+. Because the headphones come with the $400 bluetooth speaker the prediscount price is 800, meaning it gets the $50 discount instead of the $25, bringing it down from $400 to $279. If the coupon worked properly it would be at $304.

I think the "real" price error here is the Harman Kardon speaker showing at $429. A quick eBay search shows average price of $90-$100.

The speaker was originally positioned as a Homepod competitor, so they might have tried to sell it for $300 USD, but obviously there were no takers, and it seems like it was discontinued quickly and cleared out at much lesser price of $100.

I would say $100 or so is more than fair, since the device looks a lot more sophisticated than what you get in a $100 Echo device.

Good deal to get a speaker (if you need one) and the coupon error for these headphones. The ANC on these headphones is pretty weak, but everything else seems solid. I would still spend a bit more to get the Sonys but if you aren't commuting on noisy buses/trains/planes, this seems like a good compromise
RFD is not just about saving money, it's about the thrill of the hunt and not paying full price like Joe Shmoe did. This applies to everyday items as well as high end items that I don't really need.

Much ado about nothing.
Not mush of a price error.
Doesn't deserve "price error" in the title.

Get the refurbished Bose QC35s instead for the same money.
