Santa may very well be preparing for next year’s, but late Christmas gifts are always welcomed, especially if they can be purchased at a sweeter price than usual.

Best Buy is definitely interested in clearing some 16GB Nexus 7 (2013) stock these days, as the company is not only offering buyers a $30 deal discount on the device – that means it costs $199.99 instead of the regular $229.99 – but it’s also throwing in a free $25 Google Play Store gift card that can be used for digital content purchases.

According to the company, the free $25 gift code will be sent via email as soon as half an hour after purchase – although it some instances it can take up to eight hours to ship.

Unfortunately, the deal only applies to the entry-level Nexus 7 (2013) model, meaning that the 32GB version and the LTE aren’t eligible for the offer – they cost $269.99 and $349.99, respectively. In case you want a cheaper Nexus tablet offer, Best Buy sort-of has you covered, as it still sells refurbished Nexus 7 (2012) models for $149.99 a pop.

That said, if you’ve just received your Nexus 7 this Christmas, or plan to buy it in the following days, make sure you check out our extensive hands-on coverage of the tablet in the playlist above!
