I didn’t downvote but I think they don’t like it compared to last years deal where you would get a Samsung tablet with 4gb of data and that was completely free without a dime. I got 2 of them last year both tablets valued about around 500$ together and 1 tablet is actually paying me to get the service because I’m getting paid 5$ plus tax just to take a lightly used tablet plus a data plan and the other is just a free tablet and plan but it’s a premium one

Please don't lock yourself in for 2 years for this trash tablet. Android tablets in general are trash. If you get a low end android tablet it will end up being a paper weight after 1 year.

If you really need a tablet stick with an iPad. An iPad will still be useful after 4 years.

It's $120 for two years of 4gb data. you can sell the tablet and get half that back. no one is getting this deal for the tablet. The deal has been ongoing in some form for years.

There is only one reason folks go for this deal, the tablet is just a placeholder.
But seriously why do folks here on RFD like to throw the iPad into conversations about budget Android tablets? 90% of people who own these things only run YoutubeVanced on them, and that's something the iPad can't outdo them at

Isn't this available for months now? I signed up for this beginning of August when they sent the email so that i could have a new account 2 years old and be assured I will be staying in the game. Anything special about this or no?

These tablet deals are great. I got two MediaPad t5 for 0$ and 4gbs data lines for 0$. Sold both on Kijiji.

Wouldn't ever recommend anyone actually using it. Not even reliable for YouTube vanced. Your kids will hate you lol!
