If you act quick, you can get a nice deal on an tablet from Newegg, which is offering 10% off a bunch of Android slates. It's not clear how many devices are included, but the new Shield Tablet is one of them (that's $30 off). This deal ends tonight—July 31st. Update: Looks like Newegg just removed the Shield from the list of tablets you can use the code on. Other devices seem to still work fine.

The page for the Shield Tablet lists the promotional code AFUBTB10, but it doesn't appear on all the product pages it can be applied to. In addition to the Shield Tablet, I've gotten the code working on Samsung's new Tab S devices, the Asus MeMO Pads, and the Transformer TF701T. And yes, it looks like you can apply it to multiple tablets in the same cart.

So check out the list of Android slates below and see what strikes your fancy. It doesn't include third-party sellers, and possible Newegg's refurbished devices.

      Yeah, it looks like they just now removed it. I checked right before we posted this at it was still working. Other tablets are still working for me, though. Still, bummer.

    Nice tablet and price but I Never liked Newegg.
    Only yesterday I put an MSI GS60 012 notebook in the cart at $1269.99 and while I continued to shop the price in the cart changed to $1349.99 in about 2 minutes.

    Very bad business practice

      I used to always buy my PC components from Newegg, but in the past 2 years, Amazon seems to have been the better option. Everytime I get a Newegg email with something I want and its a reasonable price, I get close to buying it until I head over to Amazon lol
