Tablet shopping on a budget usually goes like this:
You shop for five minutes, realize your only options are the Amazon Fire tablets or one that looks like a LeapFrog, and you’re out.
Unless you’re team Samsung, that is.
When you purchase the newest version of the 8-inch Galaxy Tab A with WiFi and 4G LTE plus a two-year Verizon contract, you can save $100 and snag it for $149 at Best Buy. It’s not even on sale at all on Samsung’s official site — just saying.
You know we love Apple here, but we’re mature enough to admit that those prices can get ridiculous — especially if you want to add cellular connectivity. While Apple fanboys and fangirls will spend $459 (yes, seriously) to get WiFi and LTE, you’re getting both for less than half that.
Immerse yourself in entertainment with the 16:10 widescreen display and 13 hours of playback, with 32 GB of internal memory and 2 GB RAM to store everything you’ll need to keep busy. If you need to download something on the go, 4G LTE has your back when there’s no WiFi to be found.

“I chose this tablet for the value. You get a lot for your money. Great for browsing the web and streaming. I purchased it as a gift for my sister who was always browsing the web on her tiny phone screen. If you are looking for a tablet and don’t want to break the bank I highly recommend this product, Easy to use even for people who never owned one.”
The Galaxy Tab A runs on Android 8.1 Oreo and uses a quad-core processor for quick performance, power efficiency, and graphics that other budget tablets can’t even touch. It’s not ideal for heavy-duty designing or gaming, but it gets the job done.
In search of a tablet the whole fam can use? Samsung thought of that, too. Just turn on Kid Mode to set them up with a world of fun, educational content, no in-app purchases or sketchy websites included. Galaxy Tabs are sturdier than iPads, too, so you shouldn’t have to worry about handing it off to little ones.
Regularly $249.99, you can save $100 and grab the Galaxy Tab A and a two-year Verizon contract for just $149.99.
