Top 6 Black Friday Deals for Tablets [2014]

It’s that time of the year again. Leaves are changing colors, families are buckling down for a (possibly tense) family Thanksgiving dinner, and stores are promoting the heck out of all of their products. Black Friday is nearly upon us.

A couple days ago, we did a post about the best 7 deals for laptop computers this Black Friday. With countless newspaper and TV advertisements, it is difficult to actually figure what is a good deal and what is just price inflation (followed by quick price-cut for Black Friday). We decided to make our own list of what we consider to be the best deals for tablets for the 2014 Black Friday.

We have a couple different options with various features and a couple different price points. Hopefully you are able to find something that peaks your interest.

1. Apple iPad mini 16GB WiFi Tablet w/ Free $80 Gift Card at $249 [Target]

This Black Friday deal comes with a “cash back” deal in the form of a gift card for Target. Coincidentally enough, the 2 year accidental damage coverage is $79, so it’s basically like they’re giving away free coverage for Black Friday.

 

This deal starts on November 27th at 6pm. You can buy the tablet itself for $249 right now, but it won’t come with the $80 Target gift card. To order (shipped to your house or for in-store pickup), click here.

  • Available in black & slate or white & silver

2. Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7 Tablet 8GB Memory at $99 [Walmart]

If you don’t feel like shelling out $250 for a new tablet, this Samsung Galaxy is a very affordable alternative.

 

This deal starts on November 27th at 6pm. Starting on Black Friday, it will drop down from $149 to $99. Once the deal is live, you can order it on the Walmart website here.

3. ASUS Transformer Pad TF103C-A1-Bundle 10.1-Inch Tablet with Keyboard Bundle at $249 [Amazon.com]

The ASUS transformer pad is really a hit or miss. Some people love it; some people really hate it.

One of the coolest features is the fact that it is both a fully functioning tablet with some laptop capabilities. The tablet can “plug into” a keyboard (hence the name “transformer”) for responsive typing. The keyboard also serves as an extra battery pack.

If you plan to do a lot of typing on your tablet (but for whatever reason don’t actually want to buy a laptop), this is the tablet for you.

6. Pioneer 7″ Tablet 8GB Dual Core at $69 [Walmart]

At just under $70, this tablet is the cheapest on our list. It’s a good “starter tablet” for people who aren’t ready to commit to a more expensive device.
