Galaxy Nexus available for $399.99 from Expansys Canada


In lieu of the U.S. getting a version of the Galaxy Nexus for $399, many Canadians were understandably upset that despite being so close, they were unable to take advantage of the same offer from Google. Turns out that Expansys, an online retailer with warehouses in Canada, hear our prayers.

The company is selling an unbranded version of the Galaxy Nexus for $419.99. It also turns out that this version is the yakju build, which means it obtains its OTA updates directly from Google (and usually faster than the yakjux variety that Canadian carriers are selling).

Even better, despite the landing page saying the cost of the device is $419.99, when I added it to my Shopping Cart the price lowered to $399.99. Add in HST and $18 standard shipping and, to Ontario, the total cost is $469.94 delivered to your door.

Not sure how long this deal will last, but we figured we’d share it while it’s available. Happy hunting!

Check it out here at Expansys Canada.

    Hopefully the Canadian carriers drop their pricing too.

      The Blackberry Bold 9900 costs $629.99 but its worth every cent.

  • Go AWS FTW!

    Read the reviews on Expansys as a vendor…we used them before and it was expensive. Hope they have changed since then.
    But good luck nonetheless!

    Galaxy Nexus at $400 is really a big bargin…. It gives other phones a run for their money.

    I just ordered 2 and will be using them on Wind.

    Do they provide warranty?
    For example, what if something goes wrong after 5 months with the galaxy nexus I bought from Expansys? How do I make a warranty claim? I doubt if any Canadian carrier, Samsung Canada, or Google Canada would be willing to take the phone and fix it for me.
    There are policies for defective product delivered or return claim, but I cannot see anything about warranty claim.
    If they don’t, why would I spend more and wait a few days when I can get a BNIB from kijiji or local private seller for $420 with no tax?

    I got mine in February on a WindTab; this makes me sad.

  • ArSu007

    Does this have LTE? Will this work on Rogers LTE? Can’t see myself using anything other than LTE..

    • salem

      No LTE

  • brandon atkinson

    Will these work on telus?

    • salem

      yes it will work with all providers

  • MARS

    People on Craigslist and Kijiji are going to have to start lowering their prices now. It’s already been lowered to around $420 on ebay.

    The source is Expansys…not redflagdeals…anyway…I don’t trust their customer support…

  • cybik

    The source of the info was Pierre-Olivier Dybman, who gave MS a hint from his own blog.

    I should know. I wrote the damned post on FrAndroid.com

    ya I’ll wait untill it’s under $150, and they’ll still probably be making $100 profit.

  • Darren Clarke

    If you are looking for a new phone, msg me and I will be able to arrange something for you Darren.Clarke @bell.ca

  • Jack

    No offense but I put it up on RFD yesterday compared to you putting it up on your blog today… hmmm I wonder where you found the deal to put it on your blog.

  • shaun

    this will work even on mts

  • dinmab

    god damit !!! i got my second gnexus from wind for my wife last week for 600$ !!

    • JSKershaw

      Return it. Most carrier offer a 14 day return policy. It maybe a hassle but $200 bucks is $200 bucks!

  • Sam

    How can we be sure it will work on all carriers? especially Bell

    • kris

      the phone is pentaband gsm it works with all Canadian carriers

  • EddieWinslow

    If the SGIII is not to my liking, can save a whole bunch of money buy getting this phone at this price, who knows after the galaxy release it could drop another 25-50 bucks?

  • cybik

    I put it when someone on a forum noted expansys.com had it at the same price and I had the bright idea of checking expansys.ca to see if the deal had stuck internationally.

    I visit RFD extremely rarely. But you won’t take my word for it, so IDGAF.
