Get $30 Off the New Nexus 7 Through Staples With This Coupon Code Until July 28

new nexus 7

So the new Nexus 7 may have gone live for purchase in Google Play moments ago, is also available for immediate pick-up at select Best Buy stores, and can be Prime shipped to your house via Amazon by tomorrow, but none of those compare to the current deal Staples has running. 

If you use coupon code 41178 during checkout, $30 will be slashed off the tablet. In other words, you are getting the brand new Nexus 7 with FHD display, double the RAM, and newer processor for the same price as the original N7 16GB when it first launched, and a cheaper price on the 32GB model. Using this code, you’ll lock into a new Nexus 7 for $199 (16GB) or $239 (32GB).

Update:  Staples appears to now be out of stock.

The deal runs until July 28 (Sunday), so go get it!

  • Sequence of Sound…

    Thank goodness this sold out before I could get to it.

  • Payaso

    WISH IT WASNT SOLD OUT! A REP TOLD ME TO CHECK BACK TOMORROW!

  • William_Morris

    SOLD OUT!

  • mustbepbs

    So I tried to use the in store coupon about an hour and a half ago and the guy was pretty happy that it didn’t work for some reason. Also gave him the online coupon and no go.

    • beano311

      Damn, I’m guessing that it won’t work anymore. I just posted a long comment asking if the coupon worked anymore that probably no one will see because Disqus sucks and default sorts comments based on their rating instead of their post time… Unless you bother to read through 100+ posts.

  • beano311

    I just called four Staples, first store I called “We only have the old ones”.

    Next one said “We have a few, I’ll check the stock for you, do you want a protection plan?” I said no, he put me on hold, came back and said “We have one in stock, but it’s on hold for someone buying a protection plan, if you want to buy a protection plan, I’ll sell it to you instead.” I’m guessing they had more in stock and he just wanted to sell a protection plan.

    Next store “We only have the old ones, the new one doesn’t go on sale til the 31st” so I said, no it goes on sale today according to your website and according to my table, which has one I bought from Best Buy sitting on it… “Okay, let me check [5 minutes later]. We have 4 in stock, but we close in twenty minutes.”

    Next store I called, “Yeah, we have a few in stock. If you want to use the coupon for $30 off, it doesn’t work for the new Nexus tablet. I literally tried it five minutes ago for a customer, both the in store coupon and online.”

    So wtf, does the coupon not work any more? Was it supposed to not work for the new Nexus and they accidentally had it set to work for it, saw the mistake, then cancelled it? I’m going to stop by the first one I called that said they didn’t have any, tell them that, yes, you do in fact have them, and see if I can use the coupon there. Also, has anyone used the in store code, 35852, recently (like within the last half hour)?

    • Sean Bello

      I just called the one 2 min from my house and they said “no, we don’t have it in and don’t know when it’s for sale. check back in a week or so and we should know”. I said “I would hope so, because it’ll be on sale then. I’m asking if you have it now. Best Buy is selling it and so is the Play Store”. he put me on hold and said “we have a demo but don’t know when it’s supposed to go on sale. call back tomorrow”. friggin’ teenagers.

    • p0k3y

      Staples sucks. End of story. Got mine from OfficeMax with $30 off as well – a coupon that they sent me.

  • Michael Martin

    went to my staples, all they had were the 16. i cant deal with that and have no patience so bestbuy i went

  • cobalt27

    Completely sold out, which is a huge bummer since I was ready to buy the 32 GB version.

  • brockdawkins

    Thanks for the heads up. Ordered mine and hopefully can pick it up when I get home from vacation.

  • droidrazredge

    Well I just called my local staples and all they have is the 16 GB version in stock not the 32 GB version. They said possibly tomorrow they might get the 32 version as it does not show up on the SKU in their system. Does the extra 16 GB justify possibly losing out completely on this offer ? At worst I probably can return it an exchange it with a 32 GB and pay the difference when they are in stock.

    • JMonkeYJ

      you could look at it this way: if you get the 16 GB AND this deal, then you save $70!! haha not sure if that helps, but it might ;)

  • http://rcjohnson.me/ Raymond Johnson

    I ordered the 32 GB Nexus 7 with the coupon and all looked good until about 30 minutes later when I got a phone call from a very nice yet apologetic Staples representative who said they were cancelling my order because they were out of stock and did not know when they’d get more. I’m disappointed, sure, but that’s much better than Staples holding on to my money and telling me I’ll get one in 4-6 weeks. The Staples rep did mention that they will be working to get more as soon as they can, and I should consider reordering in the next day or two.

    • beano311

      Same thing happened when the HP Touchpad went on sale for $149 or whatever it was… so many people ordered it and got their order through, only to find that there wasn’t any stock and that there probably would never be any more stock because it was being discontinued. I had two of them ordered from Buy.com, luckily I got one of them a full two months later…

    • http://rcjohnson.me/ Raymond Johnson

      Ah, it gets better: Staples canceled my order and said to try later. For the moment the Nexus 7 is in stock, but when I try to use the coupon it says I’ve already redeemed it!

      I think dealing directly with the Play Store will be a better choice.

  • http://people.ign.com/mrfrodo24 MrFrodo24

    Soooo, this is kinda off topic but I picked up mine today at Best Buy and there are two dead pixels… Should I take it back to Best Buy or contact Google?

    • beerme828

      personally i’d try to swap it out at best buy if its not a long drive… should be an easy in/out once they see you’ve got a defective product

      • http://people.ign.com/mrfrodo24 MrFrodo24

        Indeed it was just that. Got my new one with 100% of its pixels firing on all cylinders lol.

  • Adam Collins

    Both out of stock now if you try to add to cart

  • Adam Collins

    16g out of stock now

  • MatthewSimmons

    And it’s out of stock…Awesome. I am always late to the party.

    • droidrazredge

      I feel you on that, I tried to buy one as well :(. I always see the deals after everyone has bought them and they’re sold out.

  • feztheforeigner

    I know this is kind of off topic but has anyone rooted theirs yet? Will the toolkits from the old Nexus 7 still work?

    If anyone wants to know how to unlock it, it’s the same as all Nexus devices…
    1) download a fastboot.exe and the android sdk
    2) put fastboot inside the platform-toools folder where adb is
    3) open a cmd from platform-tools and type adb reboot bootloader
    4) type fastboot oem unlock
    5) say yes and you’re done!

  • droidrazredge

    Need a print out of the coupon or link to it!! Sold out @ Staples Online :(. My local Staples said they will get them in stalk tomorrow, but they said I’ll need to bring in the coupon.

  • Goober

    “…you are getting the brand new Nexus 7 with FHD display, double the RAM, and newer processor for the same price as the original N7 16GB when it first launched…”

    The original 16GB N7 was $250 when it launched.

  • http://twitter.com/geoff5093 Geoff Johnson

    Sold out :(

  • out_already?

    Shows in stock online but when I try to add says out of stock.. :(

    • Savan Ghetiya

      got rick rolled!

  • Vital

    16 gigs sold out. bought the 32gb version for a total of 255$, nice…

    • http://twitter.com/geoff5093 Geoff Johnson

      Now the 32GB is sold out

  • Swauger

    Where is the print version of this Staples promotion? I just went online and they are sold out of the 16gig version. If I can find a print out of the coupon I can take it into Best Buy and they’ll match it. Anyone know where I could get one?

    • Michael Martin

      I actually just checked both with my local and online customer service. Bestbuy wont honor the coupon.

  • droidrazredge

    This extra 30$ saving will be what covers 85% of the price for the Chromcast! Now I’ll have a New Nexus 7 32 GB plus a Chromecast for the price of one. This is Chrometastic!! It’s like Infinity x Infinity == MIND BLOWN.

  • Kevin

    worked, thanks so much.

  • they call me Rob

    If i were able to pick this up in store (which is 5 minutes away from me), this would be a good deal but it seems they aren’t in stock yet. If they get them by Sunday I’ll grab one, otherwise I’ll get it off Amazon with Prime – comes out to roughly the same price and I’m in no real rush to have one of these.

    • mustbepbs

      Mine says it’ll be delivered next week, don’t know what you’re seeing.

      • they call me Rob

        Staples has it in stock online, but not in-store. I live literally 5 minutes from a b&m store so if they had them there I would use the in-store coupon tonight on my way home.

        • mustbepbs

          I’m sorry, I totally misread your comment. Carry on.

    • droidrazredge

      Amazon Prime is for college students, alumni correct ? I have an Amazon
      account I just recently made but don’t have Prime, How do I go about
      setting it up ?

      • anezarati

        you have to pay, i think its like $75 a year

        • droidrazredge

          Thanks! :)

      • they call me Rob

        its $79 a year and if you buy a lot of crap from Amazon it’s well worth it for the free 2-day shipping – especially around the Holidays, if that’s your kind of thing. amazon.com/prime

        • droidrazredge

          Thanks! This will help me a lot. :)

          • Ian

            If this is your first time on prime, they usually do a months free trial as well.

          • droidrazredge

            Yes I have never had Prime before this will be my first time using it.

  • mustbepbs

    I have the N10 and my wife has the N7. She really didn’t want to upgrade because she doesn’t care that much, but this made her want it. Just ordered 16GB!

  • eddy

    Could not wait for online, got it at BEST BUY for $293 after tax .. could not be any happier

  • TeeJay1100

    Whoa, this is a better deal than my original Nexus 7 purchase last year for $250 from Sams club. I’m glad I just ordered on Staples website and the code is good to go.

    They don’t have units available yet in store not in my area Indiana. But you can get it shipped to a store of your choice for free.

      Those white/cement Jordan 4′s are my jam, I plan on rockin’ mine tonight actually.

      • TeeJay1100

        Those 4′s are one of my favorite!!

      • TeeJay1100

  • anezarati

    has anyone been able to find the n7 in an actual staples store?

    • NickA

      Yes, they have them at my local store.

    • BrianRoskamp

      The ‘find in store’ button shows they’re available in all of the stores within 20 miles of me. I’m considering grabbing one after work tonight.

    • Mateo

      Call ahead and speak with a manager to double check. I called before lunch and the guy I spoke with put one aside for me. Then I got to the store and the manager would not sell it to me since he just got an email stating he cant sell them till the 31. But on the bright side, the online deal worked! [:

  • Marcus Trainer

    Picked up a 16bg for $199 at lunch.

  • MichaelFranz

    Wish they did this for the LTE one…im holding out for that one.

  • steve

    couldnt resist….the chromecast is actually what put me over the edge on this. It really provides a whole new set of uses for the n7…

    • Seth Merritt

      Same here, I swore to myself that I didnt need it. Bought it. Damnit.

      • steve

        This setup is going to start to make my xbmc setup obsolete. right now the lack of hulu and mlb.tv support will keep me using xmbc some of the time, but if those come to chromecast its game over. I have a 1tb hdd attached to the xbmc, but all of the music on it has been uploaded to google music….

      • http://www.KamilGPhotography.com/ KamilG

        Yep, same here. I’m going on a 4 week trip out of the country and convinced myself I’d get it when i returned. Nope, it’s in my hands.

  • Eldorath

    Be aware.. if you’re planning on getting the extended warranty from the place of purchase.. Staple’s warranty prices are obnoxious. ($90)

    Also, for some reason, there are no staples in the St Louis area…

  • normmcgarry

    Yeah… not that great of a deal once you factor in tax. I’d rather use Amazon and get my speedy shipping.

    • Tyler Durden

      or in store pickup…BOOM

      • litobirdy

        how does that save on taxes?

        • Tyler Durden

          Not waiting on a delivery. It’s friday. Won’t come til Monday/Tuesday.

          • litobirdy

            again how does that save on taxes?

          • Tyler Durden

            Are you just that stupid? No matter what you’re paying less on Staples

          • Ian

            He finds it hard to hear your question over the sound of his own fingers on the keyboard.

    • BobbyG

      Amazon charges tax too..

      • hoosiercub88

        Only if you’re in a place where they charge it.

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        Not for most places. I’ve never payed Tax on Amazon

    • Detonation

      The free staples shipping is actually one business day. My order is due to arrive Monday, which is faster than Amazon prime’s free two day which would come Tuesday. And tax for me was only $10 (on the 16GB) so it’s still $20 cheaper than Amazon. If you’re real slick, you can try to get Amazon to price match the staples coupon discount.

      • normmcgarry

        Really! I didn’t know that about Staples shipping. I probably would have done this then.

    • mustbepbs

    not working, cart keeps showing up empty when i add it :(

    • Chris Sickels

      I called and they said to order it tomorrow

  • duke69111

    Will Best Buy honor a Staples coupon?

    • Tyler Durden

      negative ghost rider. They may price match if you show the price in checkout though

    • BrianRoskamp

      Their price match excludes coupons, but you may get lucky depending on the associate you talk to.

  • carlinscuderi

    I hate being Canadian in times like these.

  • Tom Luley

    Used this earlier today, worked perfect. Kid was baffled that they didnt exclude the Nexus 7.

  • http://www.droid-life.com Kellex B

    Sorry, folks, initially used the in-store code on accident. It’s now been updated with the correct online code: 41178.

    • JamesU513

      FYI – Spoke with my local Staples. They were showing that they had it in stock, in store, but it came in todays truck so they were still breaking down the pallets. Anyway, I gave them both coupon codes to see if they will work with the new N7. They did not work in store because it’s a new item most likely. Looks like I’ll be keeping my online Staples order. Thanks DL for saving me $36. Staples.com cost me $214.92 with the coupon (16 GB) Best Buy was going to charge me $251 including a stupid $3 recycling fee. My staples order says it will be delivered by 08/01. Hoping it’s sooner.

        The store is holding one for me now. Going to pick it up. I’m hoping I can convince them to use one of the coupons.

        • JamesU513

          Let me know if they let you so I can tell you how jealous i am

          • Joe

            Didn’t work. They tried both codes. I didn’t really put up much of a fight since I still was able to get one today :)

          • JamesU513

            I’m glad I’m not the only one who has to wait til sometime next week… Am I a bad person?

        • raffi

          I bought one already and tried to using the coupon at the store, but it did NOT work. Store manager even called corporate HQ and was told they can’t use it. I smell a class action lawsuit for false advertising.

          • blah

            Staples.com (the website) and Staples (the bricks-and-mortar) are not the same thing. Read the fine print.

  • Jared Denman

    Please note this is for IN STORE only!

    • http://www.droid-life.com Kellex B

      Updated with correct code: 41178.

      • RMH

        What was the “in-store” coupon code so I can go pick it up?

    • Cody

      No it’s not. Use the code from the screenshot not the one in the article.

  • Cody

    You put the wrong number in the article. The one from the screenshot works.

  • Detonation

    The correct coupon code is “41178″ actually

  • JG

    May God bless the staples website…

    Also the code is 41178, you have the wrong one in the article.

    and also thanks for the shoutout! first time my tip has been featured.

      Swappa isn’t a hassle at all.

    it’s 41178

      The first is the in store code which they don’t honor. The second is the online code.
