The standard 10.2-inch iPad from 2021 is our top tablet choice for most people due to its excellent performance and its relatively affordable price tag. Right now, it’s down to $309, which is close to the all-time low of $300.

The 2022 iPad Air is just as powerful as the 2021 iPad Pro with a lower price tag. It offers a sharp screen, Touch ID, and 2nd-gen Apple Pencil support. It’s often discounted below its $600 retail price, but $559 is an especially good price to find one at.

The 2021 iPad Pros come equipped with a USB-C connector, optional 5G connectivity, and up to 2TB of storage. This deal takes $50 off the 11-inch iPad Pro’s price, which is a common discount. We’ve seen it go down to around $700 on occasion, so you could wait to get better pricing.

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S8 is the best Android tablet you can buy with a beautiful 11-inch screen, and it runs on the most powerful mobile processor of 2022, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. Down to $580 for Prime Day, it’s a good deal. We’ve seen it go below that recently, however, if you want to wait for the chance to save a bit more.

Samsung is taking $300 off the Tab S8 if you have an old device to trade in. Just note that the trade-in value depends on the model and condition of your old device.

The Galaxy Tab S8 Plus is a gorgeous, powerful, feature-rich tablet, but it’s expensive at $900. The $740 deal makes it much easier to justify buying the Tab S8 Plus if you’re looking for a large-screen tablet.

Samsung is taking $300 off the Tab S8 Plus if you have an old device to trade in, including an old tablet, a phone, or even a smartwatch. Just note that the trade-in value depends on the model and condition of your old device.

The Tab S6 Lite is an older model, but it’s still a well-priced all-around tablet that’s great for anyone familiar with Android. You’d be hard-pressed to find a better tablet under $250.

The Tab A8 is a budget Android tablet with a large 10.5-inch display. It competes with Amazon’s own Fire tablets, and its main draw compared to Fire tablets is its access to the Google Play Store for a more comprehensive app library. At $180, it’s hard to pass up if you’re looking for something simple and affordable, especially with a large screen.

Still, $65 for this tablet is a great price.
