JBL offers its Charge 3 Bluetooth Speaker in certified refurbished condition for $69.99 shipped. For comparison, it originally had a $150 price tag but it currently has a new condition going rate of $100 at Amazon. This is also a match of our previous mention. JBL Charge 3 delivers a waterproof design and up to 20 hours of playtime on a single charge. You can even connect multiple speakers together for a stereo setup. Includes a one-year warranty. We loved it in our hands-on review and Amazon customers have left a 4.6/5 star rating.

Update 4/22 @ 8:08 PM: ProElectronics via Rakuten is offering the Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM Alexa-enabled Smart Speaker for $140.21 shipped when you use the code SAVE15 at checkout. Note: You must be logged into a free Rakuten account to use this code. Regularly $200 at Best Buy and Amazon, this is one of the best prices we’ve tracked historically and is the lowest available. With Alexa built-in, you’ll be able to use just your voice to command this great-sounding smart speaker. Rated 4.4/5 stars.
