Win A Windows Nextbook 10.1 Tablet Valued at $199!

by Tara Kuczykowski on January 25, 2015 · 116 comments

Now that all five of my kids are in school, coordinating computer time in the evenings can get a bit tricky when they all have online homework. My laptop is off limits (they've had one too many accidents to be trusted with it), and the designated kid laptop is currently in need of repair (see?!?).

Which leaves my only my husband's laptop to be shared among the five, inevitably leading to a lot of arguing. They do have iPad Minis, but without a keyboard, they don't play well with the websites my kids are using to complete their work... When a Windows representative emailed to ask if I'd be interested in trying out one of the new Nextbook 10.1 tablets, it was a no brainer!

Featuring a detachable POGO keyboard, the 2-in-1 Nextbook Windows tablet is perfect for my kids' homework needs. It's actually also perfect for the activities my husband uses a computer for, namely email, Internet searches and YouTube videos. Priced at $179 currently, it's an incredible value -- plus it comes with a free one year subscription for Office 365 Personal, which includes 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage, and 60 Skype world minutes per month.

Larger than my kids' iPad Minis, the Nextbook 10.1 Tablet is probably more on par with the full size iPad. I was a little surprised by how heavy it is in comparison, but at the same time, it's nice to have a tablet that feels more sturdy.

The screen resolution is great, and the keyboard is very comfortable to type on. The keyboard removes effortlessly, taking the Nextbook from netbook to tablet quickly and easily, and 32GB of memory is gives you enough space to download a multitude of apps and/or media.

The Nextbook 10.1 Tablet features include:

  • 10.1” 1280 x 800 IPS screen with capacitive multi-touch and expanded viewing angles
  • Windows 8.1 Operating System
  • Quad-Core Intel® AtomTM Processor (2M cache, up to 1.83 GHz); 1GB DDR3L system memory
  • 32GB internal storage; expandable via microSD card up to 64GB
  • Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi 802.11 b/g/n connectivity options
  • Front webcam and 2 megapixel back camera with microphone
  • Micro USB port, mini HDMI port, audio jack
  • Preloaded software including Nook for Windows 8

All in all, I think the Nextbook 10.1 Tablet is a great option for families with school-aged children. The Windows Nextbook 10.1 Tablet should be able to keep up with all of your needs, and the storage is easily expandable via a microSD card up to 64GB as your needs increase.

Note that the Nextbook 10.1 Tablet is out of stock online right now but can still be purchased in store at Walmart.

+++++++++++++++

Did you know that today is National Bubble Bath Day? What a great excuse to relax and pamper yourself after the hectic holiday season!

To celebrate, Vitabath has put together some really great promotions, not the least of which is an awesome giveaway I'm hosting along with Koupon Karen, She Saved, Southern Savers and Nicoles Nickels today. More on that in just a minute...

To start, Vitabath is offering 20% off all moisturizing bath & shower gelee, and they're also discounting all fragrance collection body wash by 15%. No promo code is necessary, and these savings are good through Saturday, January 10th.

I'll admit it's been a good while since I used Vitabath products myself, but I'm so thrilled to have been reintroduced to them! I remember my mom using them religiously when I was little, and now I can see why. They have some seriously amazing scents in their collection!

I tried out the Fresh Citrus Twist, Grapefruit Vanilla, and new exclusive Lime Citron Basil. While the Grapefruit Vanilla was definitely my favorite (think warm, spicy vanilla with a twist of refreshing, citrusy grapefruit), they all smell fantastic. In fact, my girls keep trying to smuggle my Grapefruit Vanilla out of my bathroom, but I'm happy to share! Especially since I know that Vitabath products are sulfate and paraben-free -- definitely another plus in my book.

Vitabath has also teamed up with Painting with a Twist, a "paint-and-sip franchise" (WHY is there not one of these close to me?!?), to offer fun bubble bath-themed classes, complete with special events and giveaways! Painting with a Twist will offer a special class where guests can come in and create a bubble bath-inspired painting titled "The Reading Room" and will receive free samples of Vitabath body washes and a discount offer for a future Vitabath purchase.

Sounds like a fun-filled evening to me! But if you're in the same boat as me and don't have one of these franchises near you, you can enter to win a fabulous Vitabath gift basket from the comfort of your own home right here on Deal Seeking Mom...

One (1) lucky reader from Nicole's Nickels, She Saved, Deal Seeking Mom, Koupon Karen and Southern Savers will win a year's supply of Vitabath, 12 products in all!

To enter, just complete the form below!



I received a selection of Vitabath products for review. My opinions are 100% my own.
