UPDATE: Many readers are reporting that the Nexus 7 is now on backorder from OfficeMax and that the coupon may not work any more. That being said, the website still indicates that the tablet will ship in 1 to 3 days. Let us know if you have any luck getting the discount.

There's no doubt that Google's Nexus 7 has been exceedingly hard to find since its launch. From nebulous shipping schedules to stock problems at brick and mortar stores, customers everywhere have had a hard time getting their hands on the device.

Luckily, it has been discovered that OfficeMax has Google's hit 7" tablet in stock (shipping in "1 to 3 days") for $219.99 when you apply a coupon code over the phone. On top of that, OM is offering free shipping (though customers will of course still have to pay tax on their order).


Even if you don't want to order over the phone, it's good enough news that OfficeMax has the Nexus 7 in stock, something that can't be said even of Google's Play Store, which still lists the 16GB variant as "coming soon."

Those who want to grab the 16GB Nexus 7 with the discount need only call 1-800-283-7674 and use the coupon code 212100210618.

    In for zero. Already got one from Google and not enough profit margin to try to flip it. :P

    On hold...their website appears to be down too. A lot of demand I'd imagine!

    • Timothy Gelter

      $238.14 total. She said it hadn't yet shown up on backorder but that "that doesn't always mean it's not"...we'll see I guess. At any rate, a pretty good deal!

      • Timothy Gelter

        Backordered. :-(

        • Timothy Gelter

          Out for delivery today! s/(/)/

    It's already on backorder guys. I just called in and asked for info. Demand is too high right now, they told me that they might have to send the order request to the manufacturer...

    Got through quickly (about 5 minutes). First off, guy didn't want to take my order because "I'm not a MaxPerks member and it would take him 10 minutes to enter my info, and the phone wait time was currently 33 minutes." Basically what he was saying was I wasn't important enough bc they were busy. I told him I couldn't get the discount online and he said they were backordered now anyways. Not sure I believe him but he had a crappy attitude from the start.

    That at least kinda cool that demand is so high it took the officemax website down.

  • Jephri

    It's already dead... No longer taking orders for the item

  • icantremember

    All gone...

  • Dave A

    They have fixed the code, and like timothy stated it is on backorder.

  • http://techonblogger.ward.pro/ TechRumblings

    It still let me order online after you-all said it was a dead deal?!? It will be curious to see if it actually does ship in 1-3 days. I have another on order from B&H where shipping is free and no tax to CA.
