The internet's biggest 48-hour sale of the year is set to kick off on July 16th, but there are already a surprising number of early Prime Day tablet deals available if you know where to look. Whether you want to order a sweet device today or you simply have a question about the upcoming Amazon sale, this guide has you covered.

The dilemma you'll be faced with today is whether or not you should buy a tablet now or wait for the official list of Amazon deals to be revealed. Indeed, the discounts are sure to be a lot more impressive if you shop during Prime Day, but there are some solid discounts in store for those who simply can't wait.  

For example, we've already seen offers like $200 off the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 (one of our favorite Android tablets on the market) and a Walmart deal that drops the Lenovo Tab M9 to just $109.99. We're sure to see more deals go live as we approach the big sale, so check back later if nothing piques your interest today: I'll keep adding new tablet deals over the coming weeks.

Prime Day FAQ

When is Prime Day?

Amazon has officially confirmed that Prime Day 2024 will run from July 16th through July 17th, so mark your calendars!

How do I find the best tablet deals during Prime Day?

In addition to watching Amazon's official Top Deals page, I recommend using a price tracker like so you can see specific items' discount history in real time. Of course, if you're on the hunt for an Android device during Prime Day, keep an eye on our site for all of the best deals and shopping advice. 

Do I have to be a Prime member?

Prime Day was originally introduced as a way to incentivize Prime subscribers, so you'll need to be a member if you want to enjoy the vast majority of deals during the sale. If you're not a Prime member yet, consider signing up for Amazon's free 30-day trial so you can take advantage of the deals for free. Just don't forget to set a reminder to cancel your trial before the month wraps up. Plans start at $14.99 per month after the trial period. 

How often does Amazon do Prime Day sales? 

Although there's technically only one Prime Day event each summer, Amazon usually holds a similar sale event each October. The discounts found during these fall sales aren't quite as impressive as Prime Day's offerings, but they present some pretty great money-saving opportunities if you're trying to get your holiday shopping done early.
