Best Prime Day Tablet Deals 2020: What to expect

Prime Day — the largest fall sales events on Amazon, and possibly anywhere — is approaching quickly. This year, the mega retailer has scheduled it for October, a little later on, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start taking advantage now. Prime Day deals can be extraordinary, featuring some of the hottest gear out there — for your home office, back-to-school, personal entertainment or even your small business. One of the fastest-rising, and most essential tech items is a tablet, and this year we’re looking to some amazing discounts in the Prime Day Tablet Deals. We’re expecting some extraordinary deals on brands like Apple’s iPad, Windows Surface, Samsung’s Galaxy, and more. It’s not written in stone, but when it comes to tablets, Prime Day promises some of the best deals of the year. Here’s how to best take advantage.

Today’s Best Prime Day Tablet Deals

Prime Day is still a little ways off, and the Prime Day sales aren’t happening quite yet, but you can still get ahead of the game and discover some amazing deals being offered on Tablets at Amazon. Back-to-School time is now, and tablets are becoming ever more popular alternatives to laptops, or maybe you just need to upgrade to a newer iPad, or can’t wait to get your hands on the latest tablet. Whatever the reason, there might be good cause not to wait for Prime Day. In fact, there are a huge number of super attractive tablet deals you can take advantage of right now. Amazon does a very smart (and actually very helpful) thing wherein it will tease us with deals shortly before Prime Day — like right now — to give us a hint, or more than a hint, of what’s to come. Something to watch out for.

When Are The Best Prime Day Tablet Deals?

The very best discounts and deals tend to come on Prime Day, but Amazon knows the power of temptation, and tends to send out some feelers in the run-up to get us interested (typically starting the week before). Surprisingly, these deals can really compete with those offered on the actual Prime Day. If you are browsing Amazon (or, if you’re like us, and you’re basically staking out your favorite tech) and you see a desired item on sale, we recommend you go for it. For one, you cannot be sure it will be cheaper once we reach Prime Day, or even that it will be on sale any more. If the price does drop, you don’t have to be sore; you can always buy the tablet again and return the first one. Amazon is amazing with returns; it’s baked into their business model.

What Prime Day Tablet Deals To Expect

Let’s pretend you’re looking to upgrade your tablet, or buy one for the first time. Ask yourself,
does it need to be the very newest one? We all know that sites and stores, both large and small, tend to offer the largest discounts on last generation tech when they have a big sale. This makes new room on the shelves, even virtual ones, for new items. That means that the tablets from 2019, and even early 2020, will probably be up for grabs. And that’s a good thing! Next gen tablets get newer; that doesn’t always mean better. True: there’s always newer features the previous generation tablet was lacking, but that’s not the whole story. Sometimes the tech’s innards are less impressive; sometimes the older camera is bigger; sometimes the newer models are unreliable. Don’t forget, you can find out everything you’d ever want to know about older versions through online reviews and other discussions. The newest tech can be a gamble. As well, brands like Apple and Microsoft offer fantastic customer service on older models, so you can shop with peace of mind.

Once Prime Day arrives, you should also keep your eyes peeled for Lightning Deals. These are some of the deepest discounts on the newest tech that we’ve ever seen. If you know what you’re looking for — if you’re anything like us, you have the perfect tablet in mind, right down to the pixel — and so will other shoppers. If one of these Lightning Sales pops up, you need to jump on it really quickly, because this tech tends to get swept up right away. If a tablet matches what you’re looking for, or is even really close, add it to your cart. Amazon has your back with a generous and lax return policy. So even if you make an error and shop a little too quickly, you can always return it. No problem. Just Prime, Grade A, Tablets.
