Groupon Selling a Refurbished Nexus 7 16GB for $189 – I Guess That’s a Deal

groupon nexus 7

Care to save $10 on your Nexus 7 purchase? Groupon is currently running a deal for a “manufacturer refurbished” 16GB version of the popular Android tablet, though we’re still trying to figure out if the $10 you would save over a brand new one is worth it. Remember that you can pick this tablet up from Google for $199, and no, it hasn’t been refurbished. That $199 is for a brand spankin’ new N7. There are times that refurbished models of products aren’t a bad thing, though. In fact, some believe that they tend to be better, as the manufacturer has had time to fine-tune any issues in refurbished models that were once plaguing new builds.

    Maybe that is California MSRP, like on TPIR

    Fyi, for those who have Discover card, you can get 15% cashback (purchasing anything off Groupon) by clicking on their referral link through their website when you log in to your account.

    Yes kinda stupid pricing

    I’m so glad I read everyone’s comments. I cancelled my order and found a 32GB mint condition with MOGA controller, two cases, and a bluetooth keyboard on Ebay. for $250.

    Where do all these “deals sites” get their original pricing? First the Nexus 4 retails at $500 (dailysteals I think…) and now the 16GB N7 is $260? Makes me question my previous purchases…

      I think they use magic. Even Amazon does this (well, their sellers do). The Internet is a buyer-beware world. Just because it says “$14.95 on sale from $249″ doesn’t mean that anyone has ever actually PAID $249 for it.

    A 16GB Nexus 7 from Google Play is around $225-230 shipped. So, this is actually saving you around $35-40 since the shipping is included on the refurbished 16GB Nexus 7 from Groupon.

      Go to gamestop and buy one for 199….with tax its 214…and its brand new.

      • NCSUgolfer01

        Still saving $25.

          ON A REFURB! Meaning some other person had their greasy little hands all up on it and who knows what they did to it. 25 bucks is dinner at Applebees. Not enough of a savings for me to get hooked up with Groupon and getting countless spam from them and letting some pissed off postal worker on a 13 hour day transport my electronics from the plane to my house.

          • NCSUgolfer01

            No Applebees for you!

          • http://BGR.COM/ riggs

            NO NO NO NO!!!! I love their spinach artichoke dip! lol

          • NCSUgolfer01

            I’ll probably end up getting more grease on my N7 from eating there. haha

      • NexusPhan69

        Only if you live in a state with sales tax.

  • sport

    Cancelled Groupon because of their anti-2nd Amendment stance.

      Can we leave the non-phone related politics for elsewhere, please?

    • Dr_Buttballs

      Guys…..guys listen……why don’t we….guys seriously….why don’t we be completely irrelevant.

    • rohicks

      Thumbs up. Me too.

  • Detonation

    + Free Shipping and No Tax for most, which saves you around another $20. But I would pass on this still, wait for when the 32GB ones (new) go on sale for around $230. Happens every couple weeks.

    • michael arazan

      Just happened last week and they thru in other free goodies like a case and something else, DL posted it.

  • Jose Lopez

    This is not the deal that I am looking for……

  • mikeGsays

    Love the typical inflated list price – where does Groupon get their pricing from, price gougers?

    • Raven

      Yeah, even considering the old original price of $249, it has never been $260.
      I don’t think they get it from anywhere. I think they just make up something to make their “deal” sound better.

      • NexusPhan69

        Just canceled Groupon because of this.
