Today only, Amazon offers 40% off top-rated portable Bluetooth speakers from Philips. Each speaker lets you play music wirelessly from your phone or tablet and take calls with speakerphone functionality. The speakers on sale today are priced at the lowest they have ever been from Amazon.

Philips SB365/37 Wireless Bluetooth Portable Speaker (Black): $59.99 shipped The most powerful of the bunch, it comes with a slot for 4 rechargeable AA batteries (not included) and is about the size of a Big Jambox but lighter -under 1lb with similar sound according to the 3.8/5 star reviews.

Philips BT3500B/37 Wireless Portable Bluetooth Speaker: $47.99 shipped This one is thinner and therefore the bass won’t be as good but it gets a higher 4.2/5 stars from Amazon reviewers for its cool volume button, NFC pairing and portability.

Philips BT2500B/37 Wireless Portable Bluetooth Speaker: $29.99 shipped This is a smaller version of the above without NFC or the extra speaker. Probably the best deal of the bunch at under $30 shipped, this one is great as a portable speakerphone.
