Should I shop on Prime Day or wait until Black Friday?

This year, with Prime Day and Black Friday spaced a month apart from each other, that means if any of these tablets sell out, there might not be a large restock in time for Black Friday. Also, if you’re looking to buy a tablet as a holiday gift for a friend or loved one, you’ll want to purchase one as soon as you can in lieu of possible shipping delays when Black Friday rolls around. If you’re holding off on your purchase in hopes of a better deal on Black Friday or Cyber Monday, don’t. We don’t anticipate seeing a large price difference between the two events. Get on these Prime Day tablet deals now before stock runs out.

Are any Prime Day tablet deals too good to be true?

Lots of tablets are on discount for Prime Day. That said, there are a few things every shopper should keep in mind. Always do your research prior to the event so you know what you’re looking for and don’t feel overwhelmed by the number of deals. Even though you can almost never go wrong with big tech brands like Google, Apple, or Samsung, be cautious when you’re shopping for tablet accessories from other brands. Always check reviews and ratings if it’s a brand you’ve never heard of before. Finally, always trust your gut: If a deal looks too good to be true, stay far away from it.
