I know the Go is lesser of a machine but I thought for $279 ($269 with StarCard) was a pretty good deal with the type cover/keyboard included.

$399 on AAFES with free cover included
Price match to Best Buy $329
Use code VETERANS19 for additional $50 ($60 with starcard) off
No tax

$279 ($269 with card) out the door.

Don't have experience with AAFES yet, but never have I seen anybody price match and then also take a coupon afterwards. Presumably you have to place the order (with coupon) and then request a match. They'd then lower the price (LESS COUPON) to meet the competing price.

So, if this actually works, somebody (or OP) let us know because that would be pretty surprising. No indication in OP that the deal has actually been verified.

How did they apply the coupon after price matching?

I placed the order before posting this. When they build the order over the phone the coupon is automatically applied to the order. Then they do a $70 adjustment for the price match. The keyboard also gets automatically added to order once they add the tablet.

Was pretty quick to do over the phone.

Thank for you tips. I placed my phone order with price match $329 with free type cover + $60 off as well. Also I took the advantage of getting the Microsoft Office 365 Home Military Edition 2019 with $20 off... Everything down to $298.99 what a Slickdeal!!!

Intel Pentium Gold running Windows 10 S.
This means, it's basically a crippled windows tablet.

It says there is a one-way switch out of S Mode available, but with 4415Y processor, I doubt you can do much other than word processing, drawing and basic browsing. I don't know if it can even handle 1080p youtube at 60fps.

UserBenchmark rated the process as Tree Trunk with Very poor average bench.

Unless he really wants a surface, there are some great i5 deals for $350-$400, including Costco's HP deal for $399.
I never knew AAFES price matches.

Same here. Just needed something lite and portable to do work stuff while away from the office. Windows is the only OS supported by work.

I think a lot of people, including you, should watch this video before you believe the rumors and make up your own mind.

I could not find a price for this item on Best Buy for $329. I think they changed their pricing.
