If you're an Android user looking to pick up one of the best tablets on the market, you could find yourself shelling out a hefty price for the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra.

If you're willing to make a few sacrifices, though, you'll be able to save quite a packet by opting for Samsung's entry-level and budget-friendly Galaxy Tab A9+ instead. The 64GB, Wi-Fi model carries a full price tag of AU$379 which, in itself, is already quite good, but Afterpay Day sales have delivered a discount that drops this tablet to what could be its lowest price yet – just AU$253.29!

To find this epic offer, head to eBay where it's discounted to AU$297.99. To drop the price further by an additional AU$44.70, you will need to select Afterpay as your payment method and use the code APAYDAY at checkout.

This tablet has been about AU$277 on Amazon and dropped to AU$260 on eBay during Boxing Day 2023, so this is definitely an offer not to be missed.

Whether you’re after a tablet for yourself or one of the kids, this deal will land you one of the latest 11-inch Samsung tablets for just over AU$250. Coming with Android 13 out of the box, this tablet is great for streaming videos or multitasking while studying thanks to its split-screen feature. While 64GB may not seem like much, it supports up to 1TB of expandable storage via a microSD card. You'll need the code APAYDAY and use Afterpay as your payment method though.

If 4GB RAM and 64GB storage won't cut it for you, you can get the <a href="" data-link-merchant=""" data-link-merchant=""">8GB/128GB version of the Tab A9+ for just AU$338.29.

You may not get all the bells and whistles here, but there’s a lot of value, particularly at this discounted price.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A9+ allows you to have up to three different apps on screen at one time, making it a solid multi-tasking device if you want to take notes and watch a movie simultaneously. 

It’s also a great companion for road trips and holidays – it’s slim design allows the tablet to slip into a backpack or bag with ease, and it packs in a 8MP rear camera with autofocus so you can snap some great holiday photos too. It’s also got a 5MP front camera, perfect for jumping into video calls with distant family and friends, or a conference call with work.

While we haven’t reviewed it yet, we think it could be a great back-to-school tech supply if your child needs a tablet.

Simple and packing in all you need from a tablet, as well as expandable storage – the latter noticeably missing from any Apple iPads – the Samsung Galaxy Tab A9+ is a great all-rounder on a budget even at full price.
