We must be achingly close to a new 7-inch slate from Google with all the Nexus 7 sales going on. This time the already low price over at Staples is getting even lower with the application of a $30 coupon code. This is a solid deal, even for last year's model.

The 16GB Nexus 7 is going for $179 at Staples, but the coupon code (20098) knocks $30 off the price. The 32GB starts at $199, but using the same code takes it down to $169. Note, you can only use this code once per order, even if you're buying a 16GB and a 32GB at the same time.

Buying the Nexus 7 from the Staples website includes free ground shipping, or the option of free pickup in select stores. Maybe the New Nexus 7 is right around the corner, but it's going to cost a lot more that $150.
