Guys, this is pretty nuts. GameStop is apparently trying to get rid of its remaining 2012 Nexus 7 stock, so it's slashing the price down to a Benjamin till they're all gone. That's a hell of a deal, especially considering KitKat is just around the corner for this device. And it'll probably run better than ever on KK thanks to Project Svelte.


If your local GameStop is already out of stock (they're all running low apparently), we're hearing that Staples will price match, so you should be able to grab it for a hundred spot at either place. That's just a killer deal, no question about it. It may not be the latest hardware, but it's easily worth a hundred bucks. And it's a Nexus, so that makes it even harder to beat.

Anyway, enough of my babble – this deal's only available in stores, so stop reading and start driving (you can check GameStop in-store availability here). God speed.

  • Shoryuken

    saw it on slickdeals yesterday .. the deal is likely long gone by now


  • david coffey

    In heading to my GameStop right now. Be perfect for my son.

  • shepiji

    Correct me if I am wrong. There was no 32gb Nexus 7 in 2012. It was just an 8 and 16. Right? Or did the 32GB come later?

    • shepiji

      nm. I was wrong. there is a 2012 nexus 7 that is 32gb

      • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

        You were thinking Nexus 4.

        • RevolcFael4

          Remember how Google removed the 8GB model and added a 32GB one? Then the price of the 16GB model shifted down to the price of the former 8GB model and the 32GB took the former 16GB models space.

          That was worded funny.Does that make sense?

          • Dissidence

            "They upgraded the 8GB and 16GB models to 16GB and 32GB respectively"

  • cmelvin12345

    Just went to staples and the guy thought I was crazy and said there is nothing in the computer about it being on sale

  • cmelvin12345

    Just called GameStop 229

    • shepiji

      thats for the 2013 model.

  • agl82

    Sold out. =(

  • Phillip Jones

    My Staples is saying the deal is only good with a trade-in at Game Stop?

    • MyLeftNut

      Not so.

  • Mike

    Yeah I just called both Gamestop and Staples and neither had any idea what I was talking about.

    • MyLeftNut

      Most of the stores I called didn't even realize there was a sale going on. I just stopped asking about the sale and simply asked if they had Nexus 7 in stock and if they did, if they could put it on hold for me. As long as you can get one put on hold for you, you know you're going to get the sale. The store I finally got lucky at, the guy didn't even know there was a sale till he rung it up.

  • Sad Canadian

    These are the kinds of deals that make being Canadian suck...$229.95 for the 2012 Nexus 7 32GB still at Best Buy.

    • Mike Reid

      Give it a few weeks. Everything is later here in Canada.

    • n0th1ng_r3al

      Free healthcare. Shut up ;)

      • NexusPhan

        It most certainly is not free. I hope you're smarter than that.

    • RL010

      i thought the bacon was the reason it sucks to be a Canadian

  • omar

    I am in Egypt guys I want to buy anyone please help me call me if you can help +201110908844 or add me on Facebook ([email protected])

  • Alfredo Rodriguez

    Just bought my left. The employee thought i was lying until he scanned it and it show i was right. Got it for 100. Thanks for the heads up.

  • MyLeftNut

    This is why I appreciate you guys. I have to buy 4 tablets and 7 phones for family this Christmas and thanks to the tip (though I got it late) I was able to pick up one from a Gamestop 40 mins from me. I picked up two Hisense Sero 7's from Walmart last week so now I just need one more.

    Can any one recommend a good budget tablet? All the other's I checked so far seem to not be Google certified. They all come with getjar or some other nonsense app store and have no Play store compatibility. I wish I could have picked up two Nexus 7s. Even the Sero 7 cost me $140 each and they were only 8GB.

    • shadowdude777

      How about the Asus MeMo Pad HD?

      • MyLeftNut

        Is it reliable? I've bought Asus products in the past and they always fail in one way or another. Hell, I've had to return 5 different Nexus 7s because of QC issues, and those are considered higher-end tablets. I know a few people who bought the Transformers and they had nothing nice to say about it, at all. Is the MeMo Pad better well made?

  • WHO?

    You can't just walk in staples and get the price. They need to be see the price on gamestop and they will price match. Item is no longer on game stop website so no price matching.

    Article.needs to be updated so people don't look like fools walking into staples.


    This is a 3month ago sale Staples and GameStop are both out of it and they can't order it because the Nexus 7 2012 has been discontinued. If GameStop is out of it Staples will not price match it. Please research your articles better before you post anything that's been out of date for 3 months.

    • BMR

      Wow, you're a fool. lol

  • Johnny-5-is alive

    Walmart will price match it also, just picked up 2 for Christmas presents.

    • JesssYesss

      BS i just called walmart and they will only price match local print ads....no online anything

      • BMR

        read around, a lot of people have been able to get WM to PM.

      • Johnny-5-is alive

        No BS, they matched right off of the gamestop ad on my phone. Know their terms, get your information straight, and you can get things done.

    • anonymouse

      Nope. Tried it at mine. Got treated like a complete fucking idiot.

  • Harold Goldner

    Got mine. Going back tomorrow and seeing if I can pick up more at other stores.

    • https://plus.google.com/108596272537415356460/posts Jason Farrell

      Why? You have yours. Leave some for other folks who need the deal.

  • raj

    super cool deal

  • http://glokul.us/ glokul

    i got one!!

  • Chris

    Ugggh got one a woot a couple weeks ago for 140 :/

    • V

      Just go back to the store showing the price dropped. Most stores will give you the difference.

      • Chris

        woot is a website and will not do that lol

  • BMR

    Got mine after a 30 min drive. Thanks GS.

  • Frank

    successfully price matched at Walmart for $99 boys! Go! Go! Go!

  • Elrey75

    So I went to best buy, showed them the email I received with the sale announcement (gamestop power card) and they almost sold me the 2013 N7 32GB for $100.00. I was gonna let it happen but Santa Claus was watching for sure. They found a 2012...

  • j¤n Gårrëtt [5,000+]

    never mind.

  • Jodie Johnson

    Couldn't find any in Stock at staples or game stop. Found some at Walmart and they price matched. Manager couldn't believe it. Walmart is only place that still had them in stock.

  • Dave

    I got one from my game stop. Looking to buy a case. Is this a version 1 or version 2?

  • Eggs

    Got this price matched at Staples.They did not have it in stock, but were able to order it online for me, shipped to my house, at the Game Stop price. Just brought a printout of the gamestop page saying $99.99.

  • grizzlyjon83

    Was able to price match at Walmart. Very excited.

  • Don

    None available anywhere in the Minneapolis, MN area. GameStop is sold out all over Minnesota, and it sounds like Staples along with most big retailers have removed it from their shelves completely.

    • Don

      JK! Found a Walmart that had 4 in stock! I tried to pricematch 3, and after arguing with a manager for about 30 minutes about how they don't match online prices, he agreed to sell me 2 at the discounted price!

  • Ben

    Did anyone have any issue with price matching at Walmart? If you didn't, did you print out the page or have an actual ad?

  • [email protected]

    I just tried to get the price match from Staples (online) and they said that because Game Stop is out of stock they will not be granting this price match :(.

  • Jeff

    Thanks for tip, I think I bought last one in state on Saturday. Have a Lenovo A2107. The nexus 7 is far better. But I feel like I stole it. Use it like you stole it, you did!
