Updated June 8, 2017: If you know Sonos, you know that discounts of any sort are rare, other than their annual Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale. So you can imagine how excited get news that Sonos is running a Father’s Day sale this year!
From now through June 18, 2017, you can save $50.00 to $150.00 at sonos.com on select sale items. Plus you can use coupon code FRE2NDYSHP17 at checkout to also get a free upgrade to 2-day shipping (a $10.00 value). Just be sure to first select 2nd day shipping in Step 1 at checkout before applying the code in Step 2 for it to work. Here are the sale highlights:
— $50.00 off Sonos PLAY:1 2-room Music System (set of two speakers).
— $100 off the Sonos SUB.
— $100 off the Sonos 3.1 Home Theater Package with PLAYBASE or PLAYBAR to choose from.
— $150 off the Sonos 5.1 Surround Sound Package with either the PLAYBASE or PLAYBAR to choose from.
Be sure to check out the details and shop the sale at sonos.com. Offer available for US customers only.
So is this a good deal?
Generally, any discount from Sonos is a good deal because they rarely offer any sort of promotions. Especially if you’re looking to pick up either one of the surround sound home theater packages then this is a good opportunity to pull the trigger. The Sonos SUB at $100 off is also one of the lowest prices we’ve ever seen on it (last holiday season over Black Friday/Cyber Week it was only $50 off).
With that said, if you’re only looking to get the PLAY:1 speakers then you can expect a $50 off each ($100 per pair) in December if they bring back the same discount levels again this year. But of course it’s way too early to know if that will happen or not. And besides, life is short and you probably don’t want to wait 6 months to find out.
If you just want the Playbar or Playbase as a standalone, then it’s not included in this sale. However then free 2-day shipping promo code still applies so at least it’s something.
Where do I enter the coupon code?
To apply the free two-day shipping code, you’ll have to first add the whatever items you wish to purchase today and go to your cart. Then complete Step 1 of the checkout process with your name, mailing address, telephone, email, and shipping method (choose the two-day option which will be around $10.00 or so depending on where you live).
Then once you continue to Step 2, there you’ll find the “enter gift/coupon code” box. Be sure to copy FRE2NDYSHP17 exactly how it appears (in all capital letters with no spaces) and select “apply”. If all goes well, you’ll receive a conformation in free that the “free shipping code applied” successfully.
Before you continue, double check in the “Order Summary” section on the right side of the page that the two day shipping charge is $0.00. If it’s $0.00 but standard “FedEx Ground” is listed, then that means that you forgot to choose the 2-day option in Step 1 and you’ll need to go back and change it.
If all looks good you can now select your payment method and complete your order using either your credit card or Paypal account.
What else does Sonos offer?
The best deal we’ve ever seen from Sonos is their friends and family discount at 30% off and the employee discount at 50% off. There’s also a employee purchase program (EPP) that some Sonos partners offer their employees (for example if you work at Apple it’s been reported you get a 20% off code to use at sonos.com). Obviously, these are not offers open to the general public and are usually offered in the Christmas holiday season timeframe as an extra perk to Sonos staff, friends and family members.
However, knowing that these offers do and have existed, it may be worth checking out your Linked-in connections to see if you know anyone who’s friends with a Sonos employee in Santa Barbara, CA (their corporate headquarters).
