Fitness bands

Still finishing up your holiday shopping? You're not alone–and it's not too late to score some great deals. I found some very good prices on some hot items.

Inexpensive Fitbit

It's no secret that it's hard to find discounts on Fitbit's incredibly popular wearables. But Target is offering the Fitbit Charge HR for $79.97, a savings of $50 off its list price and $20 less than most competitors (including Amazon) are charging.

That gets you Fitbit's easy-to-use wearable, which tracks distance, steps, calories, and heartrate, and includes access to Fitbit's excellent mobile app. Target is offering a free pair of Yurbuds spots headphones with any Fitbit purchase, and its Cartwheel app is offering 10 percent off Fitbit prices, making for a really good deal if you can find that same price in a Target store.

Great Deal on Jabra Bluetooth Headphones has a good deal on Jabra's Move Wireless Bluetooth Headphones, offering these comfortable, over-the-ear models in black, blue, or red for $59.99.

That's a savings of $40 off the usual $99 selling price. Over at Amazon, you'll find the black version available at that same discounted price, but you'll pay $99 if you're looking for these headphones in black or red.

Best Deal Ever on the iPhone 5s

Speaking of Walmart, the discount retailer is offering one of the lowest prices I've seen on the Apple iPhone 5S. Yes, it's an older model, but you can get it in a prepaid version for Straight Talk for just $149. Most retailers sell this device for closer to $200, and Amazon is offering the same phone for $189.99.

iPhone 5S for Straight Talk Wireless

Walmart's version includes 16GB of storage and is available in silver or space gray. You'll need to supply a prepaid voice and data plan from Straight Talk, which is a very affordable option in cell phone plans. This is a good option if you're looking for a low-cost smartphone for a teen or tween.

Bonus Tip: Get Cash Back Almost Everywhere

Looking for a simple way to save as you're browsing these deals and any others? Consider the Ebates Cash Back button. This browser extension works with Google Chrome and Firefox browsers, and alerts you whenever cash back is available at a site you're visiting. It prompts you to activate the cash back reward, and tells you just how much cash back is available. It's a nice reminder to use Ebates to make money while shopping, something I often forget to do, but it can be annoying if you're simply looking to window shop.
