If you’ve still held off to getting a Nexus 7, Newegg has a pretty good deal on a refurbished 2013 Wifi-only model today. The 16 GB model is nearly $50 off, at a price of $193.99. The 32 GB model is $25 off at a price of $244.99. And as an additional bonus, you also get a $50 Visa prepaid card sent by mail.
It may seem like this is a mail-in rebate, but the Nexus 7 price that is listed is the price you pay for without any other roadblocks. So after you receive your $50 pre-paid card, the 16 GB Nexus 7 is only $143.99 (which is $96 off a new Nexus 7) and the 32 GB Nexus 7 is only $194.99 (which is $75 off a new Nexus 7). Of course, you can use that Visa card for anything after you receive it.
To receive the $50 card, you have to print out a rebate form, cut out the universal product code from the packaging, and mail that along with a copy of your receipt to Newegg. Physical mail, so you’ll need stamps and envelopes.
The sale is valid through today and March 12th, and to get the $50 card you have to send in the rebate form before March 15th. Both models of the Nexus 7 qualify for free standard shipping, and if you subscribe to Newegg’s Premier service, you can get free two-day shipping.
