Should you shop the Memorial Day tablet sales?

Like with any major purchase, it can be tricky to know when the right time to buy is. That goes doubly so during the Memorial Day tablet sales as the sales season is so close to another big event — Prime Day. Simply put, we’re expecting the Prime Day deals to be better than the Memorial Day tablet deals, so you may well be better off holding out until then. After all, it’s only a few weeks away.

However, while the Prime Day tablet deals are likely to be better, knowing when to buy does all depend on how urgently you need a new tablet. If your existing tablet has just failed or you simply can’t wait any longer, we won’t blame you if you have to dive into the Memorial Day tablet sales right now.

On a similar note, if you’re buying a tablet for a gift, then you might need it sooner than Prime Day. Don’t let someone down simply to save a few bucks!

Holding out for Prime Day should be more financially beneficial, but it’ll also give you more time to figure out your budget and check out our look at the best tablets. There are a lot of different options out there, so it’s important you find the best one for you. Whether you wait for the Prime Day sales or go for it now, buying the wrong one will cost you in the long run, so do your research.

Still, it’s highly likely that you’ll get the best bang for your buck with Prime Day rather than the Memorial Day tablet sales, but in either case, keep an eye out and avoid any incremental discounts. These are rarely worth your while. You want the big discounts so you can truly reap the rewards of your chosen sales event.

We strive to help our readers find the best deals on quality products and services, and we choose what we cover carefully and independently. The prices, details, and availability of the products and deals in this post may be subject to change at anytime. Be sure to check that they are still in effect before making a purchase.
