Barnes & Noble Now Offering The NOOK Tablet For $199 After A One-Year Subscription To PEOPLE … Is That The Deal?

Share And Comment

If you’ve been waiting on the NOOK Tablet to get just a little bit more affordable, you might be in luck. For customers who purchase the NOOK Tablet between now and March 9, 2012, you’re eligible to receive the tablet at $199 instead of $249. The way it works is simple. All you have to do is subscribe to PEOPLE for one-year. Unfortunately, that’s only a good deal for those who like PEOPLE, and not really a deal for others. Why? Because the subscription costs $9.99 a month. I’m not calling this a bad deal, but it does not appear to be a good deal for me.
