CVS has this low-end but adequate for many on 50-90% off clearance.
Ask the store clerk to check: Craig Tablet 0741, usually in the Photo area with other "high value" electronics. Could be in the back of the store as well.

Check the bottom of the box and the back of the tablet if the seal's already open that it's the CMP-741e. Photo attached below.


Update: quite a few reported to have paid $25 with 75% off now.
$12.5 anyone? (holding breath...)

Update 2: multiple reports of $10 or 90% off.
Receipt updated. Thanks, zirjacks!

Craig CMP741e running ICS 4.0.3. Has HDMI, and works fine with Youtube and Netflix.
The spec is much better than CMP741d, which seems to be the ridicule in this forum. A good review here,

Don't use any ROM for the wrong last letter, eg, CMP741d for CMP741e. You'll brick it.

how much does it cost to make? Not sure but to put it in perspective, think about this. Guess how much it costs Apple to make a COMPLETE Iphone? You'll choke! $8 (and yes I said $8 and no I didn't slip a decimal). They then sell them to the wireless carriers for about $600 and then these guys sell them much cheaper but make up for it on the service.
Absolutely no way. The QCOM chip costs more than that.

totally agree with that...i remember an article awhile back breaking down the net cost of making a tablet and it was in the hundreds. I believe once it gets down to the retailer hes probably making 100 to 150 max.

CVS. I'm guilty of sending that poor guy to Riteaid in vain.

Thank you for the deal, however it ran up for 88.88 at my local Rite Aid in Riverside, CA.
Perhaps you can ask them to price match with the receipt...

Wow. I wonder how much it costs to make. PC hardware margin all over again.
could be a case of profit already made, ready to move on to new model, so selling at essentially zero (or even negative) profit margin.

Quick question, if I go in the store, what exactly should I ask for, a "Craig Tablet", or what will the person at the counter know this as? Is there a item number for it which they can use to look it up with?

Aren't you just a fountain of incorrect info. Were you, perhaps, the speech writer for Paul Ryan during his run for VP?
