Good luck actually finding these in stores. I gave up around Christmas after checking all 3 stores in town every time a Shoppers offer like this came up over a few months. I eventually just took advantage of a Boxing Day sale elsewhere.

I disagree as they are two very different sets of cans. Noise isolating versus active noise cancelling.

So this is with active noise canceling?

How does it compare to the Bose one for $449?

after considering the discount, it is only 50% of Bose's price... totally different price range..

Is the Bose overrated? I need a pair of headphones. Contemplating between these two.

Budget friendly option is TaoTronics BH-22

I haven't tested the Bose but based on my research this is my summary:
  • For noise cancelling Bose is slightly better, but the Sony WH1000XM3 has everything beat on that front
  • For sound quality, a serious audiophile would put the Bose above the Beats Studio 3, but a casual listener who likes a "fun" sound will prefer the Beats

Regardless how you slice it, I'd say the differences in both Active Noise Cancelling and Sound Quality between the two sets of cans will be minimal to the average listener. For less than half the price I'd say Beats Studio 3 is the better deal. If the Bose were on sale then it would depend.

Got confused by the OP, so I checked the SDM's flyer:
1. this Saturday is 20* points collection. the points you earn by paying $280 for the headphones is around $83. if my math serves, the discount you have finally is 1- (280+tax of 280)/(280+tax of 280+83+tax of 83) = 25% which varies based on your location.
2. the points back promotion is a specific promo for individuals. the discount is 1-(280 + tax of 280 - 30% of 280)/(280+tax of 280) = 27%.

if you go Route 1 and save your points for bonus redemption or points back redemption, you can score higher discount. and since you cant redeem and collect point in a single transaction (at least when last time I checked), you can only choose either route 1 or route 2.

since you mentioned a budget friendly option, I suggest you go with beats studio 3 and forget about bose 35, which is just too expensive.
the final price works out to be around $220 to 230 range, which equals to the historical low of 220 during the box day. but the drawback is it may be hard to find stock or your favorite color.
