I have a daughter who is a college student and I noticed a great deal on these tablets on Samsung.com but only if you can get the student and educator discount.

Very nice alternative to the Ipad deals right now.
I went for the 128 GB for the extra $40 to get the extra memory (6 GB vs 4 GB).
These prices are before any trade-ins which can save you even more money.
