Tip: DO NOT BUY the 16GB Nexus 7 From 1SaleADay Unless You Like Overspending

Before too many of you make a mistake, we wanted to remind you that Google recently dropped the price of the 16GB Nexus 7 to $199. That’s right, 1SaleADay’s deal today, is not a deal. At $220, even with free shipping, their 16GB N7 is more expensive than if you were to buy it straight from Google.

Cheers Joshua!

  • All depends on your situation. #YMMV

    This article is BS. This is way cheaper than if I were to buy straight from Google with SHIPPING AND TAX. Next time don’t bash a website when they’re offering a better deal than Google.

  • Nagini

    Or you could just buy it from Walmart, or some other retail store.

  • tedsd

    Keep it simple…buy from B&H. No tax and no shipping for everyone outside New York.

  • TomStieger

    But Engadget said that I should pay more for technology!

    • endurotech

      Then believe what you want.

  • Never had an issue with 1SaleADay, bought plenty of items.

  • cloutist4

    i live in TN where sales tax is nearly 10%. that plus shipping brings a nexus 7 up to almost $235. this is cheaper. its a deal.

  • Actually it is cheaper. Google charges $20 shipping and $20 tax for me so it will save me $20 if i order through them.

    • This is true. I just checked.

      Look everybody, this is a comment by someone who actually used their brain.

      No /s here.

    • $225.93 here in Central Florida on the PlayStore. So the deal is better. Although local Walmart has Nexus 7 for tax, no shipping, so the 1SaleADay is more than that.

      • Jaime Mosier

        I paid the same here in Ohio…$225.93

  • ljv

    Still see some listing on Craigslist for $200 to $250!

  • Atst88

    I paid $228.43 to buy the 8gb from goole when it was $199. Now that the 16gb is the same price (Minues the $25 credit) I do not see why NOT to buy from here EVEN IF Shipping is $5. Maybe next time consider taxes…

    • Atst88

      $15.44 for taxes and $13.99 for shipping directly from Google.

    • I still had to pay taxes with this deal. Even with free shipping Google was cheaper w/ Tax and S&H. #YMMV

  • nhizzat

    $199 from the Play Store BEFORE tax and shipping.

    Pro tip: Factor in all costs BEFORE making a comparison.

    • Ryan

      Shipping is 13.99 and no tax (in LA). Still cheaper than $220.

      • Butters619

        I’m guessing by LA you mean Louisiana?

        • hiimpaul

          48* states. Oregon has no sales tax.

          • Butters619

            Replied to the wrong person.

      • nhizzat

        So the title of the article only holds true if you live in Cali. How unfortunate for the residents of the other 49 states.

        • Butters619

          False. CA most definitely has sales tax. Like I said, I think he means Louisiana.

    From the sound of it you have to wait a lifetime to receive anything from this company. Upwards of 3 weeks.

    • Clint O

      Only one time took a few weeks…Most of my items shipped within a week

  • James_Kernicky

    And they usually have good deals…

  • EvanTheGamer

    I hate that site. So. bloody. much.

    • Barry Taylor


      • EvanTheGamer

        Read the headline. Overpriced. And the N7 isn’t the only item that they are trying to make you pay up the arse for either.

        • nhizzat

          The headline is misleading and untrue.

      I’ve bought a ton from them.. been VERY happy so far. They usually have some great deals! Probably just didn’t realize the price change.. I’m pretty sure they didn’t do it on purpose..

      • 4n1m4L

        Check them first. Some woots aren’t deals.

        • Woot.com is still a deal. but you need to be careful. a brand to brand comparison is safe but a brand to similar brand is not always a deal. you can often get the same thing under a different name for less.

          • 4n1m4L

            Some of their stuff isn’t any better than Amazon. Weird because I thought they were a subsidiary of amazon.com

      • EvanTheGamer

        They pay you to say that? lol

        • nhizzat

          I’ve bought several items from them and haven’t had any issues. Besides, the title of the article has been disproven.

        • Barry Taylor

          Ha. Nope. Just great previous purchases. It’s just amazing that a website gets bashed and called a “scam” because one product on their site isn’t a stellar deal. Sad.

      • as a person who does deals with Groupon and other deal a day sites, they should know exactly where the market is prior to launching this. and they should have scratched the deal and ran another.

        • EvanTheGamer

          Or instead of $199, $150 WOULD be a deal.

        • nhizzat

          Or if you’re buying from the Play Store, you’re going to be charged $14 in shipping and whatever tax is in your state. But let’s just ignore those factors, yeah?

      • Or more likely they are sitting on older stock and would take a loss marking it down from the new $199 price.

      bahaha thats it u win

    Misery. I missed the boat on the sale yesterday for the 32gb at RadioShack. hoping to get a N7 during Black Friday!

    • I think the tablet is already a steal. If anything, you’ll find the 16GB go for $195 and a gift card on Black Friday. Won’t get much lower than that I would expect.

      • Roshan John

        It’s a great deal. And superior to the competition. It’s also superior to my pocket money right now…
