Walmart has a fantastic deal on the Kobo Arc 7″ 32GB tablet, now only $98. The original price is not listed, but when price comparing I found this tablet for as low as $99 at Staples and as high as $369 at The Shopping Channel and everything else in between. On Black Friday we bought our kids this tablet, but only the 16GB for $99 and this was a really good deal at the time, so I’m going to say the price has gone down and the sale price is even better.
As I mentioned, our kids were gifted their own 16GB Kobo Arc tablets for Christmas. I think it is one of their most prized possessions now and they use them as often as possible. They watch YouTube, play games, Skype their relatives, read books and even do homework on them. At night you can find their tablets lying beside them in bed, to which I gently remove because I have a phobia of wi-fi waves entering their brains. The tablets are great for long car rides, restaurants where my husband and I would like to have an adult conversation, long waits at the doctor or other appointments and so much more. My kids love it when Nana Skypes them, rather than me because it feels so personal – she called me!
I think the price is great, especially if this is a tab for kids, but I’ve used their tablet a number of times myself and could totally get one for myself now. I’d actually prefer a 10″ screen, so I can watch cooking shows while I cook, but my husband thinks the 7″ is much nicer and easier to hold.
As you know, Walmart ships for free.
