Deal alert: Nexus 7 (2013) costs $199 or $239 at Staples with coupon [Update]

Nexus 7

A retailer is already selling the new Nexus 7 for a cheaper price than what the tablet is supposed to cost, even though the device was only announced a few days ago.

Using a coupon code at checkout (see Source link below to access yours) you’ll be able to save $30 on either the 16GB or 32GB Nexus 7 (2013), which means the prices for these versions go down to $199 and $239 before tax is applied.

The deal, published by Slick Deals, actually applies to any tablet you want to purchase from the retailer, whether it’s Google’s new Nexus 7 or any other device – just yesterday we showed you a $99 Kindle Fire offer part of the promotion. However, this is the first sale for the new Nexus 7, and an unexpected one considering that only a few days ago Google hosted a special media event to unveil its first 2013 new tablet alongside a new Android OS version.

As you can expect, plenty of Nexus 7 buyers will want to get it on this deal, so better hurry to get your order in before Staples’ Nexus 7 stock is finished. The offer is valid through July 28, but the promo is restricted to U.S. Staples stores, so don’t try it if you’re reading this from Canada (where Staples is also selling the device).

That said, let us know whether you managed to score a cheaper new Nexus 7 from the first week of unofficial sales – the device should have been launched on July 30.

[Update:] Apparently the 35852 coupon is for in-store orders, while the 41178 coupon is for online orders.

[Update 2:] The 35852 coupon will not work on Nexus 7 orders, as some of our readers have pointed out. Moreover, Staples has apparently run out of Nexus 7 (2013) stock.

    I asked a sales rep at staples and he said i could not use this coupon on the new nexus 7

    • iluvthesoftsoft

      I ordered online. Coupon accepted. Got the 32gb for $250 (including tax) and free shipping.

    Coupon clearly states, “Excludes… Item nos. 215185 and 215186” The new 7 tablets. Sorry.

    • SladeNoctis

      Well there a thread on Slickdeal that says otherwise.

      • KaneRobot

        The thread was wrong then. I was just denied at the counter.

        • SladeNoctis

          So a whole thread of people determine to get discounts are wrong. Well i know my online coupon worked for me. The in-store coupon isn’t the most reliable in most coupon situations.

  • Dennis German

    Does not apply to the new NEXUS TABLETS

  • Adam

    I went into the store tonight, gave the cashier the coupon, and he said it wouldn’t go through… He called his manager over and the manager forced the transaction through – he said he has been doing it all day. The store I went in only had the 16GB version, and it was indeed $199 before tax.

    i called my staples store. they put one 32 gb tab on reserve today and said i just need to give my name and they are holding it in customer service for me. they confirmed i can use the coupon for $30 off my new nexus 7 32 gb (2013) tab. I will go there at lunch time. With the $30 i will be saving, i will purchase a protection plan for the tablet. not bad.
