Walmart is currently offering a $70 eGift Card with every purchase of a Barnes & Noble Nook HD+ tablet.

The 16GB model of the Nook HD+ currently costs $269.99, and you can spend the $70 Walmart eGift Card in stores or online on accessories or other items. If the sale doesn't suit your fancy, you may want to consider Barnes & Noble's own sale, which provides a free Nook Simple Touch eReader with every Nook HD+ purchase.

The Nook HD+ offers a beautiful 9-inch display with a full HD 1920 x 1080-pixel resolution, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 16GB or 32GB of expandable storage, HDMI-out (with an accessory) and much more.

The fire sale could tell us one of two things: that Barnes & Noble is making room for new tablet models, or that the Nook unit is trying to offset poor sales with deals.
