US Cellular is really proving itself to be the carrier for holiday shoppers not wanting to spend a small fortune on gifts, isn't it? Just two days after announcing that all phones will be free until the 24th, the carrier's turned its price-cutting gaze to the Samsung Galaxy Tab and lowered the tablet's price to only $199 on contract, half of what it was before.

The only real catch is that you're required to sign up for US Cellular's $54.99/month plan. The plan does buy you 5 GB of data along with tethering capabilities, but I still can't imagine paying almost $60 a month on top of my regular phone bill, especially since messaging is excluded.

Nonetheless, one man's trash is another man's treasure, so hit up the source link if you're interested.
