Know how we literally just told you about a seemingly once-in-a-lifetime kind of deal going on over at Woot for last year’s Google Nexus 7? Well, you can forget all about it. Unless you already splashed the cash on the 7-inch tab, in which case… sorry?
We’ve just got wind of another promotion with a strong early whiff of Black Friday juice, this time not limited to only one slate and valid through a much larger and more reliable retailer: Newegg. The online store has each and every tab in stock available for a preferential price, namely 10% off list prices.
Doesn’t sound like a lot and it probably isn’t… for some, but for others free money is free money and impossible to refuse. Now, unlike via Woot, where you could simply waltz through, place an order and get it all done with in seconds, I’m afraid you’ll have to do a bit of heavy lifting with Newegg.
Not a lot, but something. First, pick your poison. I’d go for the Nexus 7 2013 any day or maybe Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10.1 2014. The great thing is Newegg sells all the Android tablets you can think of, so 2012 Nexus 7, Nexus 10, Galaxy Tabs, Asus Transformers, Galaxy Note 8.0, LG G Pad 8.3, Sony Xperia Tablet Z, you name it, they got it.
After settling for one (or why not more than one) and filling your cart, be sure to not hit checkout until spotting the “apply promo codes” box. It’s right there under delivery methods and gift cards. Got it? Excellent.
Next, you’ll want to copy the “EMCWWWS22” coupon code in there, enter a valid e-mail address to sign up for Newegg’s newsletter (remember the heavy lifting part?), and poof, 10% of your order is no more. It’s as simple as that.
Can’t decide whether or not the deal is truly as dreamy as it seems? Then let’s do some calculations. For instance, the second-gen GNex 7 with 16 GB storage is $229 normally, so after shaving 10% off, it’s $206. If you think for a second you’ll be able to do better than that by next Easter, you’re out of your frigging minds.
Or how about the 32 GB model? After applying the discount, it costs an incredibly low $242 (down from $269). A refurb 32 GB Nexus 10 in turn drops to $333, the 2014 GNote 10.1 can be had starting at $494 and the slashed Note 8.0 is $323. No pressure to buy any of those as the final choice is entirely yours, this is a mere sample of how Newegg’s promo works.
By the by, the special offer has an expiration date, which some sources claim to be November 17 and others 20, so get a move on, will you?
