Microcenter has (as of this writing) a $40 tablet that has Android 4.1, 4GB of memory, Wireless and is 7" in size. It's an off-brand tablet but good for someone just looking for browse the web and do email. It's OK for watching video, but it does get choppy sometimes. Has microSD slot too, so you can add extra storage (up to 32GB I think). I don't know how long this will last, but it's a good deal for someone looking for a cheap tablet for web browsing or email.
If you're looking for something for playing video all the time, or more features, then this probably isn't a good choice for you. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles as many more expensive tablets do, but it does have the basics for basic usage (headphone jack, microSD card slot, etc).
I will forewarn though, because I did get one of these (in addition to another tablet of another brand)---when using the wireless, it does get quite warm in the back. Some tablets do because of the circuitry and their design, so be warned. Other than that, it's a good buy at a good price. It only has a single core 1GHz processor, though. Screen isn't all that great, but does the job. I just wouldn't keep it in a case while you're using the wireless. It would get too hot. However, i have yet to have mine overheat or malfunction due to this.
This is still on sale as of this posting (11/22) and I think it will stay on sale until after Thanksgiving (or until the Ad ends).
