Occasionally on-line retailers will re-stock, so you may also keep checking the link above, in case they do.

As mentioned below, this item is available as a brand new retail item, selling for $280 at The Source.
Looking for a family friendly tablet? This is the one you need! One of the best features about this Samsung Galaxy Tab E tablet is that you can buy it for the kids to share. The Family-friendly Multi User Mode allows each member of the family to set up their own personalized tablet experience and access their own music, games, apps, photos, and more. There's even a multi-window feature where you can have 2 screens for apps open at once! Kid Mode provides a lot of different kid-friendly apps, with options for you to monitor activities and block unsuitable apps. You can even set usage time limits.
Seeing this tablet at The Source going on sale from $330, down to $210, seems like a great deal at 36% off. However, one rule of thumb for purchasing electronics is making sure you know what the typical base value is.
In this case, the same tablet can currently be found at Best Buy for $280 which is their regular price for a brand new one. The average price at Amazon.ca is $305, with the current price being $279, again, for a brand new model. Walmart also has the same price of $279 for a new tablet.
What this tells us, is that The Source displays a higher regular retail price that is around $50 higher than other retailers. Sometimes this happens because when a tablet first debuts; the price is higher, and retailers don't always drop the original regular retail price down, to reflect what the true market value decreases to, in time.
However, this refurbished tablet that comes with a 1 year manufacturer's (Samsung) warranty, provides at least a $70 savings over purchasing brand new and on a tablet that isn't hundreds of dollars to start off with, this is a substantial savings!
The Samsung Galaxy E Tab has 16 GB internal memory, and has a fast quad-core processor with 1.5GB RAM. You can use MicroSD cards of up to 128 GB! The Operating System is Android 5.0 Lollipop.
