The big day has finally arrived, which means we're hustling to find all of the best Black Friday tech deals so you don't have to. One of the best offers that we've seen is this deal from Amazon that slashes a hefty $100 off (opens in new tab) the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 64GB for the first time ever. This record-breaking discount sends the price of the popular Android tablet down to just $179.99. That's a solid $20 cheaper than any discount Amazon has offered on the device in the past.

If you're unfamiliar with the A8, it's basically the perfect budget tablet, complete with the premium specs that we've come to expect from Samsung in a surprisingly affordable package. I'm talking about a durable metal construction, upgraded Octa-core processor, and a truly massive 7,040mAh battery with fast charging capabilities. It's no wonder that we called the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 the best cheap Android tablet that money can buy.

Head over to Amazon today and you can instantly save $100 on the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8, a device that we consider to be the best budget tablet on the market. This tablet features an attractive 10.5-inch display, a solid aluminum construction, and quad speakers with Dolby Atmos sound.  

The 128GB version of this Android tablet is also seeing an epic discount of $130 off (opens in new tab), so you really can't go wrong with this Amazon deal. Sure, there's a chance the price will drop even lower as we approach Cyber Monday, but why take the chance when an outstanding offer is already here? 

While you're in the neighborhood, why not take care of all of your holiday shopping in one go? We've also been gathering the best Black Friday Chromebook deals (many of which are currently selling for under $100) and the best prices found in Amazon's Fire tablet sale
