What tablet deals are available?

You occasionally see the odd bit of money off an iPad, so look at retailers like Currys and Argos in the UK or brands like Best Buy, if you're Stateside, as Apple itself doesn’t often discount its iPads. There are always iPads on its Refurbished Store all year round though. Official resellers, like KRCS can sometimes offer more competitive prices too.

Android tablets are far more likely to be sold at more competitive prices, given their generally lower RRPs in the first place - though even high-ticket Samsung tablets can also get a good price cut – so keep your eyes peeled to this page.

There are, of course, 2-in-1 tablets that run on more robust hardware and software, such as Microsoft's Surface line, which runs Windows. Though slightly pricey, we have an entire article dedicated to Microsoft Surface deals, which goes through the newest models, accessories, usual prices, and, of course, where to find the best deals – including how to spot deals on refurbished devices and find student discounts.

Amazon's Fire tablets all have low prices to begin with and are criminally low when they go on sale, which is surprisingly frequently. They tend to drop from 'affordable' to 'essential', with offers across the range.

If you find that you’re missing out on Amazon’s Lightning deals, which run for just a few hours and offer limited stock, we'd recommend signing up for Amazon's 30-day free trial of Prime, which will get you access to deals 30 minutes before everyone else. Plus, you'll get free next-day delivery with the Prime trial, as well as access to Prime Instant Video and more.

Sign up for Prime now to take advantage.
