Apple iPad Air 2 32GB WiFi Tablet
Store: Best Buy
Lowest By: $94
Expiration: November 26
At less than $300, this doorbusting Editors' Choice deal is at a price lower that even we expected to see for the iPad Air 2. It's nearly $100 less than what other retailers charge and the best price we've ever seen for it. Hurry, though, it's already sold out in Silver and Space Grey, but you can still bring home the Gold.
Amazon Fire 8GB 7" WiFi Tablet
Lowest By: $17
Expiration: November 29
This Fire tablet is seriously affordable — and an Editors' Choice deal — with a price tag of $33. We've seen this price before in August, but that doesn't stop it from being the best price we've seen for a new unit. It's available in four colors and features a 7" 1024x600 touchscreen display, 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 8GB internal memory, front- and rear-facing cameras, 802.11n wireless, Bluetooth, and Fire 5 OS.
Lenovo Tab 10 10.1" 16GB Android Tablet
Lowest By: $33
Expiration: December 3
With its full-HD display, this tablet makes a stunning and affordable media device. Plus, it's at the lowest total price we could find by $33 and the best price we've seen for any Lenovo 10" tablet. Features include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 10.1" 1280x800 touchscreen, 1GB RAM, 16GB storage, 802.11n wireless, Bluetooth, 5-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel webcam, and Android 6.0 OS (Marshmallow).
Amazon Fire HD 8 16GB 8" Tablet with $10 Amazon Gift Card
Lowest By: $10
Expiration: November 29
Earlier we posted a deal for just the tablet at this price, and that was an Editors' Choice offer because it was the lowest price we had seen by $30. Today, Amazon ups the ante: If you order via an Alexa-enabled device, you'll also score a free $10 Amazon gift card.
This tablet lets you use Alexa to play music, control smart home devices, and do lots of other cool stuff. It also features an 8" 1280x800 LCD, 1.3GHz quad-core processor, front and rear cameras, dual-band 802.11n wireless, and Fire OS 5 (an Android-based OS).
Note: This discount is available only on Amazon Echo, Dot, Tap, Fire TV, and compatible Fire tablet devices. You will receive an email confirmation (typically within seven days of your purchase) notifying you when the electronic gift card has been applied to your account.
iPad Pro 9.7" 32GB WiFi Tablet
Lowest By: $97
Expiration: November 27
Good news, you get a second chance at this popular deal from yesterday. It's even better now that we know Apple's Black Friday sale is a $100 gift card (still not matching this price). Seeing a significant discount on a high-end, current-gen Apple device is always rare, That's tied with our expired mention from yesterday as the best deal we've seen that hasn't required an .edu email address. (It's also the lowest in-stock price we could find now by $97.)
Open-Box Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 32GB 9.7" Android Tablet
Lowest By: $228
Expiration: December 1
Open-box devices bring the savings of refurbs, but they've barely been used! Plus, this one comes with a 1-year warranty from the vendor to help guarantee your purchase. This deal is $40 under our June mention of a factory-sealed unit and the best outright price we've seen for this tablet. And this one even comes with a cover! (It's now $228 less than what a new unit and cover would cost elsewhere.) It features 1.9GHz and 1.3GHz quad-core processors, a 9.7" 2048x1536 touchscreen Super AMOLED, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal memory, 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth 4.1, 8-megapixel front camera, 2.1-megapixel rear camera, and Android 6.0 OS (Marshmallow).
A 1-year Quick Ship Electronics warranty applies.
