Even 12 years after they first appeared on the tech scene, tablets remain synonymous with the iPad. You could argue that the iPad (or rather, iPads) is the best tablet around, but there are plenty of other options out there – especially if you’re looking to save money. If you’re looking to save money, you’re in the right place as we’ve rounded up the best tablet deals for Cyber Monday.
One of the best-known alternatives to the iPad is Samsung, with its range of Android tablets, but it’s not the only Android tablet manufacturer out there, and there are still plenty of new Windows slates out there. They may not be in the same league, but let’s not forget about Amazon’s budget-friendly Fire tablets.
Whichever tablet you have your heart set on, now is the best time to buy. Most retailers have their best deals right now, and they’ll continue through Cyber Monday and Cyber Week.
However, not every discount is a good discount, and our experts have selected only the best offers. For more buying advice, you can check out our best tablet chart.

Apple iPad Pro (12.9-inch, 2022)

Amazon has discounts up to $200 off the Intel models of the new Surface Pro 9.
Apple iPad Pro (12.9-inch, 2021)
Now there’s the 2022 iPad Pro, but not much has changed, aside from improving the already-best performance. Plus, you can save almost $400 on this powerful version from last year.
iPad mini (2021)
It was: $499
The latest iPad mini for 2021 is the best little tablet you can buy. The 64GB Wi-Fi model is available on Amazon for about $100 off, while the 256GB version is $100 off.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 (256 GB)
The regular Tab S8 is the cheapest of Samsung’s latest flagship tablets, but it’s excellent value for money. This is especially true after Amazon’s 26% discount.
Amazon Fire HD 10
It was: $164.99
The latest Fire HD 10 tablet is now available on Amazon for 45% off. There’s also a 50% discount if you don’t mind lockscreen ads, but that’s what we recommend.
The best Cyber Monday tablets in the UK
Huawei MateBook E
(£400 off + free backpack)
This great bundle gets you a £400 MateBook E (keyboard cover included) and a free backpack which normally costs £129.99. If that’s not enough, there are also a variety of discounted accessories.
Microsoft Surface Pro 8 (128GB)
The Surface Pro 9 is official, but last year’s model remains a very competitive device. Amazon currently has 25% off the entry-level model.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra
The 2022 Tab S8 Ultra is usually pretty expensive, but the 256GB and 512GB models will drop to their lowest prices on Black Friday with £200 off.
Microsoft Surface Pro 9
It was: £1,599
The Microsoft Store is the first in the UK to offer Surface Pro 9 discounts, but it’s understood that this is only on the high-end model. If you’re looking for a Core i7 processor and a 256GB SSD, there’s a £94 discount.
