Staples' Black Friday ad points to $199 price point for the BlackBerry PlayBook

Staples PB Sale

We have definitely already seen our fair share of BlackBerry PlayBook price drops in the past months, but this deal takes the cake. Early Black Friday ads surface annually, showing off what retailers are planning to sell, thus making knowing where to go a breeze. It appears as though Staples will be pricing the 16GB version of the PlayBook at the lowest price to date, $199 -- a savings of $300! The ad only shows off the 16GB pricing, but folks in the forums are saying that the 32GB will be priced at only $50 more, making it $249, and the 64GB will be priced at $399. Some pretty serious price drops taking place, will you be picking one up for anyone this holiday season?

I just bought a 16GB $299 one from Bestbuy a few weeks back. Wish I had waited, would've got the 32GB model

luqman24

:O That's an insanely awesome price!!!

drmike

Does it come with a gold chain to hang around your neck?

standard_1664

IIII will probably buy one. Lol. That's so damn cheap.

El Platanero

I wonder ig that's online as well? I want that 64

Cafeina

Nice! I love my PlayBook. I may pick one or two up as gifts :-) It would be nice to have video chat buddies.

dzbeebo

NOOOOOOOOO... I Just got it for $299 from Bell!!! :-(

The_Adventist

In Canada, Staples is also known as Stoosples (Out Of Stock)

Good luck getting one.

EvanKr

Isn't Black Friday an American holiday? The Staples Canada website still lists it as $499. Can anybody find one in Canada at this price, or should I just pull the trigger for $299 at Bell?

dennie82

or you could wait till Boxing Day.

RevyRah

I will definitely be picking up a 32 gb if that pricing is correct.

svjones

If you go to the site and flip to page two (http://bfads.net/Ad/Staples-2011/Page2) it shows in the fine print that it indeed will be 249 and 399 pricing

Wolf35Nine

See, now you're talking. 32gb it is!

z_scorpio_z

These are still bf early bird deals, will be really hard to actually buy one. They will have very limited quantities and they will be all gone by the time you get to the door...

usofa1776

Can you get it on line or only in line??!!

lang007

Good looking out. I can not get my PB b4 Christmas

Abrante

Sounds good! I got the 32GB for the discounted price of the 16GB through Staples. I will consider the Black Friday $249 pricetag a difference of $50 which can be attributed to depreciation for the 2 month time advantage that I had with the PB in my possession.

carrickfergus

Past experience indicates that these prices will be live online on Thanksgiving morning.

JasW

Although the source says that it is in-store only, the actual scanned ad says "Order in store or online for fast and FREE delivery."

Liquid_Revolver

This crappy device should be 49.99 or buy one get two free

dzbeebo

a very childish comment.. shows how much you know about the product

Kekus

I think you're at the wrong website. This is CrackBerry, not CrackHead. However, given your comment I forgive you as it's clear to me that if brains were dynamite, you wouldn't have enough to blow your nose.

jweihrauch

This is classic. We need a '+1' button Kevin.

Loving Jesus!

team_leader_alpha1

Will be picking up the 32gb if it hits $249. For this price, will be worth it for movies while traveling if nothing else.Would be great if they allow online purchases, if not guess I'll get out with the masses and snag one.

scootnyinzer

You'd be hard pressed to get a used one at that price. I bought mine lightly used for $187 + shipping.

koool1

What a deal. Nook vs Playbook, no contest!!

loberry

I will be in line @ Staples, picking up two of the 32GB @ $249 now that the price is right!!

svjones

I only hope that there is a Canadian Black Friday and can pick one up for myself. If not, boxing day it is

Kekus

Smart move. I let me co-worker take home one of the companies Playbooks and now their whole family want's one. The think is slick as is. Will be even better once OS2 comes out in the official version (I'm not willing to sideload).

Jonathank

I LOVE HOW NO ONE LISTENS TO ME....... I SENT OUT THIS INFO DAYS AGO..... ALSO FYI BESY BUY WILL ALSO B AT 199 JUMP ON IT GUYS and next time listen to the kid.

rkopsie

same here I used to always send information & I'd never be noted for it :(

jweihrauch

I will at least be picking up one of these. I'm assuming more locations (Best Buy etc...) will be discounting to similar price points as well.

Loving Jesus!

jKickeR

Any word yet if any Canadian stores will be dropping prices that same weekend?

MXBerry

I will be picking up 2 of 32GB for $249 each is a great Deal!!!!!! Down here in Mexico Office Depot last month blow up their stock of PlayBooks on a ridiculus price! Onlye $1,999 pesos. That is just $149 USD!!! for the 16GB version... for my bad luck... the 2 office depots on my hometown did not get the playbook for sale... so i try to get one in another city but the stock was gone the same Day they put it on sale :(

Jimcmf

Great price. Great for the nephew!

gordonzhao

It appears I'm the first to notice this possible typo. I don't follow the PB as I don't have one or plan on getting the first gen of it. But the ad states "QNX" under the picture, above "BlackBerry." From what I know of it's just Bb PB OS...Where did they get QNX from? For a platform which doesn't exist, and has also been confirmed to be known as "BBX."

soundproof8@yahoo.com

That's great I just lost my playbook last week and it was a 16GB but mow I'm going for 32GB

bbcat

got myself a 64 to replace my 16 for C$402 this morning, and in Ontario in all places....

You can thank Amazon and the $199 Amazon Kindle Fire for this.

$199 is the new price for 7 inch tablets.

mybbandi

It is an absolute pity that this sale occurs only in the US. Would love to get myself a BB Playbook but the prices for these devices in Switzerland are terribly inflated.
Is there a good soul in the land of the free willing to buy me a BB Playbook and post it to me (with full reimbursement, of course)?

FrankInSF

I'm in the US and just ordered a 32GB PlayBook from OfficeDepot.com for $299. Website shows both the 16GB and 32GB models for $299.

peter on the top

Yup this looks classy and needs to get modified ...Will grab one...
