The best offer is this Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 at Best Buy for $669.99 (was $799.99). That's a new record-low price for a capable and all-around tablet that has a powerful processor and a crisp 11-inch AMOLED display that combine to improve performance and image quality. It's a fantastic buy if you want a device to keep up with demanding work or advanced games. Plus, you get the handy S-Pen Stylus included for free.

For a budget-friendly option, you can pick up the Samsung Galaxy Tab A9 Plus at Amazon for $219.99 (was $269.99). It may be a cheaper model but it still boasts a 10.9-inch screen with a smooth 90Hz refresh rate, and you get twice as much storage compared to the standard A9 model. This tablet is best suited to general everyday tasks such as web browsing, media streaming and checking emails. Undemanding games and video calls are also possible without issue.

Those are the two highlights, but several options suit a variety of different budgets and needs. Check out all of my picks from the Samsung tablet sales at Amazon and Best Buy below.

The Galaxy Tab S9 is the latest release in Samsung's lineup of high-end tablets, and this discount brings it to a new low price. This latest iteration comes with new features such as the powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset and an improved Dynamic AMOLED 2X display for solid all-around performance and fantastic picture quality whether you're working, streaming TV shows, or playing games. Upgrades are minimal compared to the last generation model, but we still thought this raised the bar for Android tablets in our Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 review.

You get a reasonably sized and responsive 10.9-inch display, a decent 128GB of storage for important files and apps, quad speakers with Dolby Atmos support for improved audio, and a slick design. Are you OK with less storage and want to save money? The 64GB model is reduced to $169.99, which equals a historic low price.

An alternative to the two tablets above is the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 FE. It sits between the A9 Plus and full S9 for anyone after better performance and battery life than the cheapest model but is happy to compromise with a lower-quality screen and camera. It's a decent choice for semi-regular users who need an all-around tablet at this new record-low price However, it is languishing in an awkward middle ground, so we'd suggest going for one of the other choices above that best suits your needs and budget.
