    Apparently not at Staples.....

    I dislike retailers who advertise non-sales as sales

    Based on this list, what do people recommend for tablets? My wife and I have been going back and forth on whether or not to get one, and if we can find a deal on a quality device we might finally take the plunge. We both have smartphones, so this would almost purely be a device for entertainment, and possibly light work while travelling.

    Great thread and just in time--I stopped in to see if all the deals had been put into one thread. :happy3:

    Even though they are not advertised per se, I bet they will have renewal deals also. Even if it's an extra $25 or $50, a Galaxy S III from Best Buy could still come in under $100. I've been on the fence about upgrading my TBolt--I hadn't wanted to get into another contract, but now with Android 4.2 starting to peek its way out, I'm thinking I'm three or four OS versions behind, and I'm tired of it. I was hoping some of the other Motorola RAZR phones would get deals, but apparently not.

    Looks like it, just don't buy a case from them. It won't let it sleep properly. Doesn't contain a magnet.

    Yeah I'm going to try using my brother's upgrade (who has a dumbphone). I hope it works, otherwise I'll return it right away. Gonna try at Sam's Club. I figure $100 will get me my much needed upgrade from the TBolt and a year's membership at Sam's Club. I doubt I'll have to rush over there and wait in line for a doorbuster.

    Does anyone know if I'll be able to pull this off and keep my unlimited? If not, the whole jig is off, and I'm waiting til my contract ends in May and getting a Nexus 4. I'd just hate to get the upgrade and the get hit with a $400 fee that I've been hearing about. Wish Best Buy had the $100 sale this week, I rather go through them and pay an extra $100 and skip all this nonsense.

    Costco has the 10.1" Galaxy Tab 2 for $279.99, and the Tab 2 7" for $179.99. Keep in mind that Samsung is having trouble shipping items here in the Midwest, so some items may quickly go out of stock. I know my Costco was OOS with the 7". These prices are good through Dec 1st :)

    I heard a rumor that Verizon will also be offering a $40 bill credit on new lines of service (but that may only apply to Costco locations)
