If you buy the Nexus 7 Android tablet through Google, you'll pay a delivery charge. If you buy it from a retailer, you'll pay a price that's equivalent to what Google charges with the delivery charge. But if you order it through EB Games and select in-store pickup, you can save the shipping charge, bringing the cost down to under $300 for the 16GB model.

Google remains the only official source for the 8GB model right now (despite Kogan sniffing around), so you can't score shipping savings on the cheaper version. But if you're near an EB Games store, fancy this Jelly Bean tablet and don't mind waiting for an estimate July 27 despatch date, this is a definite saving. You have to prepay $50 up front, with the balance paid when you collect.
