Thumbs up DEAL: Nexus 7 32GB + $25 Play store credit for $239

Just thought I'd let you guys know. I went to Best Buy yesterday and saw it for cheap.

You get a 32GB Nexus 7 2013 and 25$ play store credit for $239

Seems like a good deal. Go scoop if you haven't already


P.S. I was surprised this was cheaper than Walmart! haha

It was like $269 after sales tax for me (CA). Plus I bought the Best Buy 1 year warranty for $50. Total came out to $312 and some change. I must say not a bad deal at all. I saw this for sale last night also and figured I would jump on it since it's about $30-40 cheaper than the Google Play Store.

They send you a code in your email. I actually returned the device because the screen was yellow.... But they let me KEEP the play store credit!

FYI, I disagree with the idea of having to show your ID for a return. This is an invasion of privacy. Im surprised they haven't been sued to the dirt.

Best Buy sends the code or Google? Sorry about all the questions but I'm standing at Best Buy right now, lol. I'm still fairly uncertain about the purchase because my first one had glue all over the back and horribly loud static.

Best buy sends the code. they ask for an email, you redeem it in the play store

I know what you mean. Its a hit or miss sometimes.

I would get it, and If its messed up, return it. You walk out with a $25 freebie

Just to let you know that you get 1 year warranty from the factory by the way.

Awesome. Thank you for the quick replies. Nobody seems to know anything about the $25 credit but that was just a perk to the whole deal. Now I just have to see how the tablet itself works out.
