[Deal] New Nexus 7 16GB Available for $199 from ebay With Free Shipping

Screen Shot 2013-08-16 at 8.41.08 AM

Ebay is currently running a solid daily deal on the 2013 Nexus 7. For $199, you can grab the 16GB variant that normally retails for $229 through outlets like the Google Play store. And if the $30 savings wasn’t enough to get you moving, the seller is also offering free shipping with orders. Oh, and this is a brand new N7, not refurbished.

The quantities are limited, so if you are in the market for a new Nexus 7, get over there.

Cheers Scott!

    Here’s a way to increase sales
    it won’t cost you anything up front.

    Say you charge $6.99 to ship a single item. In reality, this
    shipment actually costs you about $2 in materials and postage. Obviously, this
    allows you to turn a tidy profit of about $5 for each sale. But if you look
    beyond the individual sale, you’ll see that there’s a way to make more money
    while simultaneously giving your customers a better bargain.

    Also Newegg has a bundle deal with the N7 16GB, a screen protector, travel case and some screen cleaner for $259.

    Now if google / asus can just fix the keyboard issue on these things! Grrrrr…If I don’t see a software patch that fixes it before my return period is up, it’s going back.

  • fred swims

    They are being returned by the truck load!

      The good news is that the problem is apparently related to the latest firmware update. It does not appear to be a hardware related issue, but rather a firmware issue.

      That can and will be fixed in short order I’m sure.

  • Dain Fordell

    Can I get a deal on the 32 GB one? That’s what I really want….

  • Allen Kronenwetter

    Get your heards out of your asses. This isn’t an auction. Whoever thinks ebay only has auctions obviously doesn’t know squat about online retailing.

  • derp

    The Toys-R-Us where I’m at sells these for $199 regularly… Been there 3 times since it came out and they always have it priced at that. It would be worth a look.

  • Daeshaun Griffiths

    considering trading my nexus 4 in for this. I’m still nexus even if it’s not a phone lol.

    • mustbepbs

      …Trading a phone for a tablet? What do you use your N4 for, then?

      • Daeshaun Griffiths

        it’s my nexus device. I have a main line but i always want to have a nexus, even it’s not my main line (it doesn’t work on VZ but i wanted it enough to buy it anyway)

  • Chris Schmucker

    Mine!

  • Cory_S

    Due to the QC issues it’s been having I’d pay a premium and get it straight from Google. Their customer service for direct purchase is incredible. I unfortunately had to get two replacements for my OG Nexus 7…for each one they overnighted me a new one and gave me 30 days to return the old one with a postage paid box.

    • Jeff C

      but if you were having problems with it, would you be sending it to google regardless of who you bought it from? because theyre the manufacturer?

      • Tirionfive

        Because Google handles all the warranty claims for the devices bought through the play store. In return, the consumer gets a much faster turn around rate, and doesn’t go a day without their device.

        • Detonation

          https://support.google.com/googleplay/troubleshooter/3070579?rd=1#ts=3070585,3070683

          Google’s support page says otherwise. Maybe they handle doing returns/replacements in the 15 day window, but if you have an issue 6 months later, sounds like you’d still be going through Asus.

          • Cory_S

            Yeah, and trust me. I’d sooner toss the tablet out and buy a new one than deal directly with Asus.

          • Tirionfive

            Asus has got great products, their support is lacking though!

            I miss the days of Newegg standing behind their products for a whole year!

          • Cory_S

            They have good products are are often plagued with “why didn’t they think of that” issues. I usually wait to see how they pan out before dropping the benjamins.

          • Tirionfive

            Exactly why I don’t have the New Nexus 7 :)

          • http://www.getintonursing.com/ Jon

            I’ve had to send in my Infinity Tablet and Keyboard for warranty repair with Asus. Never had any problems with them.

          • Tirionfive

            If you purchased a device or accessory from the Google Play store that is or becomes defective through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to a refund, replacement, or repair of your device. Please contact our support team and we’ll work with you on next steps and replacement options.

            Then it goes on to say:

            Whether you purchased your device or accessory from the Google Play store or a retail store, your device may be covered by a manufacturer’s warranty. For further information make a selection from the list below.

            So what they mean by that is if you bought it from them, they will help you, but either way, it’s still covered by ASUS’ warranty.

            I dealt with them way after the 15 day window. They were pleasant and very helpful. Got my device, and had 30 days to return the old one. ( I sent in the OG Nexus 7 due to the Screen issues)

    • Tirionfive

      Exactly this. I may pay $30 more for shipping and Tax, but it’s totally worth it. Did I mention I don’t recall them actually charging me for my 1st gen N7?

  • Tirionfive

    I would be wary of trying to save $30 for this. In all likelihood you won’t get a warranty, whether through ASUS or Google. eBay has never been considered an official retailer, so watch out.

    • Tyler Durden

      Definitely not Google but most certainly you will with Asus

      • Tirionfive

        Any time I’ve tried to get a manufacturer to honor a warranty from anything I bought from eBay, they said they couldn’t do it. YMMV but I personally don’t think it’s worth the $30 risk (More if you buy it from Google, but Google has great warranties)

        • Tyler Durden

          Don’t tell them its from EBay next time?

          • Tirionfive

            When they ask for proof of purchase or an invoice, you don’t have much choice. Warranty support for tech items requires an invoice anymore nowadays.

          • JoshGroff

            I told Motorola I bought an Atrix 4G off ebay (this was awhile ago, of course,) ended up hard bricking it trying to flash back to FroYo after the messed up GB update and they honored warranty and replaced it with a refurb.(One of many reasons I favor them over most other OEMs)

          • Tirionfive

            Phones are a different cat. Since they are unique (IMEI) and they can prove they’ve not been stolen, they can look it up by the IMEI and find if it still falls under warranty. Kinda like applecare.

          • JoshGroff

            True, I just figured they had some sort of way to identify tablets as well, even if just an internal marking.

          • Tirionfive

            Well, they do. But IMEI numbers can be marked as stolen in a carrier database, so the Manufacturer can look it up to find that. It’s not just about purchase/activation date, but also about stolen and tampered. I am fairly sure every major manufacturer has access to the carrier IMEI databases. 4G/3G tablets do have an IMEI, and YMMV with that.

          • http://www.getintonursing.com/ Jon

            But how is that different? Each of these has a serial number. They know precisely when the manufacture date is, and will probably honor warranty from the manufacturer date in the event there is no receipt of purchase. That gives folks a good 11 months of warranty even without a receipt.

          • Tirionfive

            I will post this from below :)

            EDIT: Also, when a phone is activated, the manufacturer receives that activation information for their records, just in case any warranty claims are to be had.

        • NeedName

          Ditto. . . every manufacturer I’ve ever talked to has said NO to auction sites and many require that it be sold via an “authorized” dealer for them to honor the warranty.

          Their reasoning is, they have no control over what has happened to the product — it could be used, stolen, or who knows what.

          • Tirionfive

            Exactly. And this might be a different case, because it says this is an Authorized dealer, but I personally wouldn’t take the chances of dealing directly with ASUS. I prefer Google nexus support to be my warranty provider.

          • NeedName

            Maybe different for this particular seller — they do have a store front. Or you could buy the squaretrade warranty for two years for $17 — still a good deal.

            Nonetheless, I’m like you. I’ll pay a little extra to get it from a “trusted” seller that has a good warranty/return policy.

    • Godzilla

      The ASUS one year warranty is on all devices no matter what the price is.

      • Tirionfive

        As stated below:

        These guys may say they are an authorized retailer, but are you really gonna believe that?

        • Godzilla

          Well i purchased an ASUS laptop on ebay and had a major issue with it and ASUS honored the one year warranty.

          • Tirionfive

            Maybe ASUS was nice to you haha, or maybe they just don’t care. Just making sure people are forewarned. IMHO, Asus RMA kinda sucks. I’ve dealt with them and they take forever. Granted, their products are stellar, but I’d rather buy mine through the Play store so I get prompt service :)

          • Godzilla

            I pretty much agree with you. I purchase 99% of my needs either from Best Buy or Amazon nowadays. I only sell stuff on Ebay

          • Tirionfive

            Oh, Amazon is great! I bought that POS OUYA, and I ended up hating it because it wouldn’t power down, then it’d get really hot and stop functioning. I am kinda mad at BB for changing their policy to 15 day only though. Amazon is still the bomb, even though they only give you 30 days. (Plus a prepaid shipping label).

          • Godzilla

            I can honestly understand 15 days for return. I work in retail and I see so much fraud from customers that its no wonder a lot of businesses lose so much money due to customer fraud.

          • Tirionfive

            Well, I think 30 days is kinda the sweet spot, gives you enough time to spend if the device decides to be a big POS or defect. But I guess you have the 60 day warranty if you are a BB premium member or whatever. 15 days goes by fast for me, and that’s why I hate Gamestop. Screw those guys, they don’t take ANYTHING back.

          • https://www.facebook.com/aaron.williams.125 Champion1229

            I’m a Premium Silver Member at BB and I have never had an issue returning an item even if it was simply because I changed my mind or just didn’t want the product anymore. Heck they even did an in-store factory warranty with 2 pairs of iBeats I bought about 6 months ago (they were about 3 months old when I returned them).

          • Tirionfive

            Well yea, you won’t have a problem if you are a premium member. But Joe Blow gets only a 15 day warranty.

          • https://www.facebook.com/aaron.williams.125 Champion1229

            Just trying to make a point that BB has no problem with you returning products even if it is just because you no longer want / need to product!

          • The Zapper

            Is this how you and Sarge met? I’m sure it was a romantic first encounter.

    • Detonation

      It’s being sold by Adorama via Ebay. It’s just another storefront for their regular site (http://www.adorama.com). It’s new and being sold by an official retailer, not just some ebay user looking to sell theirs – you will have a one year warranty.

    • http://www.getintonursing.com/ Jon

      I don’t think your right. Pretty much any electronic product purchased this early on in the life cycle, they don’t even ask about where you bought it from. They know the product is brand new and every single person out there that has one will be well within a 1 year warranty given that the product has been out for like a month.

      Once you get out past the 1st year, then it may be a concern in the event that you could be buying inventory that has been sitting around for a year or more.

      • Tirionfive

        If you are sending it out to the Manufacturer at any time beyond your purchase, you must send/fax/email a purchase invoice from the place you got it (Here it would be eBay). The main reason for this is that they want to make sure you didn’t steal it, and bought it went you say you did. Not only that, many warranties do not transfer from one owner to the other.

    [DEAL] The slutt down the street accepts NFC.

  • Tyler Durden

    Darn, I want the 32gb. Guess I’ll be waiting. Sucks for people who paid $250 at launch.

    • Ry Sav

      try ordering it from Bestbuy. when i did it was it was back ordered 2 week but i got it in the mail 3 days later… Winning in my book

    • Godzilla

      Same thing happened to me after I got my original nexus 7. They dropped the price of the 32GB to the 16GB level. I was pissed.

      • Cory_S

        I wasn’t that annoyed…kind of the nature of the beast with tech. What annoyed me more was how it basically stopped functioning if you came close to filling it up.

        • Godzilla

          I still have 8GB on mine so I havent come close. But I have heard of that problem. Something about the flash memory that they used is pretty cheap

          • Cory_S

            I tried to load up a bunch of videos on it for a vacation, I ended up having to take them off because it tanked it big time. Otherwise I usually only use a few gigs.

  • Greg Morgan

    That’s a great deal. I am fully loving my new Nexus!
