Here's a fantastic deal alert brought to us by our friendly neighborhood tech raver, gadgetrants. This one actually turns out to be a double followup. A few days ago we shared that Staples dropped the price of their Nexus 7 tablets.

According to that report, you could get the 16GB Nexus 7 for only $179.99, and the 32GB for $199.99. Both of these are spectacular deals, but apparently, Staples has upped the ante further. For a brief time (just until July 14th) they are offering a special $30 off instant coupon code for the 32GB version of the Nexus 7. This brings the total price down to a stellar $169.99 for the 32GB model! As you can see in the screenshot above, in the lower right hand corner you are given a coupon code which will be used at the final checkout. Here's the details of that special offer,

To get your $30 savings, add coupon code 20098 at checkout.

The reason why this is a double followup is because just moments ago we shared a rumor that the next generation of Nexus 7 will likely be launching in Taiwan at the end of July. This "extra" price drop from Staples seems to indirectly confirm this as they are obviously trying to blowout their old inventory. What do you guys think? Is this a deal that's too good to pass up?

Thanks again for the tip, gadgetrants!

Update: Apparently, this offer also works for the 16GB version as well. This brings its price down to $149.99! Here's a link to that one: Staples - 16GB Nexus 7 for Super Cheap!
