If you've been waiting for a good opportunity to join the Nexus 7 party, now is as good a time as you're likely to find in the near future. If you head over to eBay Daily Deals, you can pick up a factory-refurbished WiFI-only Nexus 7 for just $149.99. This is the 2nd generation (2013) model and comes with a 90-day manufacturer warranty.
This price tag gives you roughly 35% off of the regular $229.99 MSRP for a brand new model. Even though the tablet launched 8 months ago, the hardware that you're getting for the price makes this a great value any way you look at it. Read More
Update: The seller raised the price up to $199.99. Time to look elsewhere.
The 2013 Nexus 7 is about 6 months into its lifecycle and that means the refurbished units are making their way out to the deal sites. Just a few days ago Woot had both 16GB and 32GB models on sale for $169.99 and $199.99, respectively. Today, we have a seller on eBay with the 16GB model for only $159.99. And this time, it even comes with free shipping!

Looking for a 32GB 2013 Nexus 7 on the cheap (in the US)? Amazon and Newegg to the rescue! While this isn't the lowest price we've ever seen, it is pretty close to it, and more importantly, it's not through eBay or a less than well-known 3rd party retailer - these are the big-box guys.
Getting things kicked off, the 32GB 2013 Nexus 7 is one of today's Newegg featured daily deals, coming it at an impressive $239.00 sans tax and shipping, beating the Play Store price by a rather substantial $30, or 11%.
If you're an Amazon Prime member, though, you're probably going to want to go that route, as it's the same price you'll find on Newegg with the added benefit of Amazon's super-speedy 2-day shipping. Read More
