Even though there are some really good deals from third party sellers out there for those who area looking to purchase a new Google Nexus 7 tablet by ASUS, there are distinct advantages to buying directly from Google. For starters, you can deal directly with Google when something goes wrong, and I’ve generally had nothing but good luck when communicating with Google about hardware problems.
Additionally, Google sometimes offers really good deals to entice shoppers in the Google Play Store, like it’s latest offer. Right now, through September 30, Google is offering anyone who buys a Nexus 7 tablet from the Play Store three months of free Google Play Music All Access, a $30 value.
Of course, the fine print says that this is only for people who have never, ever subscribed to All Access in the past, on either a paid or free trial basis. Those who purchase a Nexus 7 before the end of September will receive a code for the free trial by email, shortly after their purchase goes through. Not bad!
Summer is traditionally the time that Google announces new tablets, and the Nexus 7 is already a year old, but this is a good deal nonetheless. And unlike the 2012 Nexus 7, last year’s version can still hold its own. Anyone planning to take advantage of this deal?[Google]
