November is upon us and early Black Friday tablet deals continuously roll out ahead of Black Friday 2021. The annual shopping holiday bonanza offers a plethora of tablet deals from just about every retailer.
Black Friday is over two weeks away, yet tons of early Black Friday tablet deals are happening right now. We’re already seeing massive discounts on today’s best tablets including iPads, Galaxy Tabs and Surface Pro and Kindle Fire tablets.
So if you plan to buy a tablet in the near future, it’s not too early to save.
Black Friday tablet deals to expect
Amazon Fire Tablets: Currently, Amazon is celebrating Alexa’s birthday by slashing up to 55% off Alexa-enabled devices. One standout deal is the Amazon Fire HD 8 for just $44.99 — its lowest price yet. Powered by Amazon’s Android-based Fire OS, the Fire HD 10 is one of the best budget tablets you can get.
Apple iPad: Expect to see stellar discounts on just about every iPad model on Black Friday. Retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, B&H and Walmart will likely offer deep discounts on Apple’s premium tablets.
Earlier this year, we saw discounts of $40 to $50 on the 2021 iPad and iPad 2021 iPad mini. So far, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro with M1 chip has seen discounts of up to $250 for the 2TB model. During Black Friday, retailers could slash an extra $30 to $50 or more off Apple’s premium tablets.
If you want to grab an iPad for the lowest price possible, we recommend you wait for Black Friday tablet deals for the best savings.
Samsung Galaxy Tab: As for Black Friday deals on Samsung tablets, the Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy S7+ will see considerable markdowns. The lowest price we’ve seen for the 11-inch Galaxy Tab S7 fall to this year is $389 ($260 off) in a Samsung flash deal. Meanwhile, the 12.4-inch Galaxy Tab S7+’s lowest price to date is $509 ($340 off). These tablets could hit new record low prices during Black Friday as retailers make way for new inventory.
Meanwhile, the new Galaxy Tab S7 SE is currently $429 ($100 off) on Amazon. We’re surprised to see it already hit this record low price weeks before Black Friday 2021. The Galaxy Tab S7 FE looks nearly identical to the Galaxy Tab S7 Plus and ships with its own S Pen stylus. It packs a 12.4-inch (2560 × 1600) TFT display, 1.8GHz octa-core processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
Microsoft Surface Pro: Following the recent release of the Surface Pro 8, we predict the previous-gen Surface Pro 7 will see its lowest price yet on Black Friday. The Surface Pro 7 with keyboard bundle briefly fell to $559 ($400 off) at Best Buy — its lowest price ever. Given that the sale didn’t last long, it may have been a premature Black Friday deal that we’ll see again.
If you can’t afford to wait until Black Friday, the Surface Pro 7 is worth considering.
Although it’s unlikely the just-released Surface Pro 8 will get a significant price cut on Black Friday, we can’t rule out bundle deals. The best Surface Pro 8 bundle deal so far comes courtesy of Best Buy. For a limited time, you’ll get a free Xbox wireless controller (valued at $59) when you purchase Microsoft’s latest tablet from $1,099.
