If the new Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition is too rich for your blood, you're in good company. Woot.com is here to alleviate your conflicting desires for a "premium" Samsung tablet at a not-so-premium price. The service has put various models of the older Galaxy Note 10.1, the Galaxy Note 8.0, and the Galaxy Tab 2 on sale. They're all refurbished, but come with significant discounts.


The best deal of the lot is probably the Galaxy Note 8.0 (16GB), which can be had by itself for $279.99. That's a full $130 off the price of a new, non-refurbished unit. You can also get a bundle with a tablet pouch for $289.99 or with an 8GB MicroSD card for $299.99. These aren't particularly compelling add-ons, but Woot sales tend to go quickly, and one of the bundles will be a good way to take advantage of the price once the regular units go out of stock.

You can pick up a 16GB version of the Galaxy Note 10.1 ("2012 Edition") in white or grey for $279.99. That's a whopping $220 off the suggested retail price, though most U.S. retailers have lowered the price by $50 or more. A white model with a pouch is $289.99. There's also a 32GB model available in grey only for $349.99, $200 off.

Finally, the aging Galaxy Tab 2 series gets a couple of entries in this sale. The Galaxy Tab 2 7.0" with a free pouch is $129.99, $70 off the retail price. The larger Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, also with a pouch, is going for $229.99. That's $170 off the original $400 price. Again, you can probably find significantly-discounted new units in the Tab 2 series now that the Tab 3 is available... albeit with ridiculous hardware buttons.

Woot offers $5 standard shipping on all orders to the United States. These aren't the one-day only sales that Woot is famous for - the specials above will end on October 4th at 9:00 AM Central, but some of the tablets are almost certain to go out of stock before then.

    I've never purchased anything from "Woot". Is this site reliable?

      They're OK. They used to take forever to ship, but that hasn't been a problem since Amazon took over. They don't exactly go above and beyond on service, but they will honor the commitments they make. I had an Acer tablet I bought from them break while it was under their 90-day warranty, and the RMA process was fast and painless.

        I didn't realize amazon took over woot...guess that's a good thing

          The general consensus seems to be: Meh.

          • Chris

            Well I haven't noticed any change besides the faster shipping, so I figure it's good for now.

  • spydie

    for $60 more you can get a new one from Amazon

      Yeah, that's what I was checking. Amazon has it 'new' for 360 bucks, with Free Shipping...

      I had actually bought the note 8 from staples last week (when they had the 75 off any Samsung tablet promo) for 224 + tax (299 in store price). Ended up returning it and getting a Nex 7 instead. (Note 8 has Android 4.1, so no multi-user support, and the low(er) res on the 8" screen just doesn't look right.

    Unfortunately they don't ship internationally.

    Are these refurbished by Samsung? I was going to get a note 10.1 refurb from Walmart for 299 because I've heard great reviews. But if these refurbs from woot come from the same place this seems like a pretty good deal.
