Deal: Brand New Nexus 7 (2012) in 16GB or 32GB on Groupon Starting at $119

Who doesn’t love a good late night deal? If you answered with an enthusiastic, “I DO!” and also are in need of an insanely cheap tablet that’s still quite capable, think about the latest deal through Groupon. For the next 3 days (or until they run out of inventory), you can pick up the 2012 Nexus 7 (yes, last year’s model) with either 16GB or 32GB of storage. The 16GB variant runs $119, while the 32GB model jumps up to $149.

I know that it might be painful to stomach a 2012 model, but keep in mind that these aren’t even refurbished units like we tend to see from online deal sites. According to the listing, these are brand new, never been touched, Nexus 7 tablets. 

And remember, the Nexus 7 (2012) still sports a Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, front facing camera, and has already been updated to Android 4.4 Kit Kat.

Any takers?

      Man this might be the deal to get me to update from my 2012 N7, thanks for the tip.

    • hyperbeatser

      Finally pulled the trigger because of this, time to get rid of my OG 8GB Nexus 7.

      As the others have stated, thanks for the tip. Time to retire my old N7… and by retire I mean give it as a Christmas gift. I don’t think my 7 year old cousin will be too concerned it’s used.

          No, I’m talking about my 2012 N7. I purchased a 2013 model from Staples.

      is the staples site down? Cannot get it to load on desktop or mobile.

      Just picked up a new 16gb N7 for 150+tax. Price matched Walmart ($199.99) and used in store code 50561 ($50 off). The employees there seemed to think it wouldn’t work, but the system let the transaction go through.

    Staples had a 32g for 129 this morning. gone now though.

    My gf’s sister wants to buy two of her kids tablets for Christmas. She didn’t want to spend a lot so I advised her to get the nexus 7 2012 used off swappa or find it refurbished somewhere, but then she saw the Samsung galaxy tab 3 on sale for $150 and bought that over the weekend bc its new and not used. I wonder if I can convince her to return them for this. Sooo much better than a 7″ galaxy tab 3

    • mustbepbs

      Augh puke Tab 3 yuck.

      That thing is a huge piece.

    Have you SEEN the amount of information you give access to when you log on to Groupon with Facebook? If any of your friends has done it, Groupon has access to YOUR relationships, birthdays, checkins, hometown, current city, and likes.

    • Cory_S

      oh my god…that means….groupon knows Cindy Ford broke up with me in the 9th grade….nooo the memories!!!

  • Maximus

    Why is the picture posted BEFORE the title? That is so confusing!

    • JBartcaps

      Have you not seen the thread dedicated to giving DL feedback? I thought we were done spamming the comments with peoples opinions about the site.

      • Maximus

        Yes. But once you stop talking about something. People forget it. I left my feedback. I’m still talking about it. Why? Because I think it’s important.

      I have left my comments in the DL feedback post, however, this is driving me nuts. It was something debated back and forth and I think this is something that has to be changed back. Most humans are not wired to see a picture then a title… Look at newspapers, etc…

  • pball_inuyasha

    Dang I got super excited there and then I saw 2012. I need a deal on the 2013 good enough to ignore the fact I still have a 2012 and should just but a 2013.

  • Guest 2

    It’s $ 249!

    • No… Check the source link.

      • Guest 2

        I meant $ 149.

  • sski66

    Yeah, actually I was looking around for an inexpensive 7″ tablet for my mom so I can send her pics & maybe she could have some fun with games. I was gonna give her mine but it fried itself, it lasted almost 1 year exactly, (by the way I’m loving the 2nd Gen). Anyway this is perfect, thanks for the tip Keller.

    • michael arazan

      I’ve had mine for one year, use it 2 hours a day, minus using it as my alarm clock, and it is acting really weird until the 4.4 update. Also acts super laggy while playing dots and dots eats battery while plugged in too oddly.

      • howard

        Anyone have delivery yet from groupon? ordered on dec. 6th and waiting for fulfillment.

        • James

          I ordered (2) Nexus 7 from Groupon and still NOTHING!! I am worried about them making it here for Christmas

          • guest

            I ordered one and that order has now totally disappeared from my records … as if it never happened. No letter from Groupon, no explanation.

  • Guest
