There’s not a lot of time left to claim 2022’s best 4th of July deals around, but as we enter the final hours of these celebratory sales, more and more discounted products seem to fly higher and higher on our radar in pursuit of bargain-hunting buyers.
‘s top iPad Pro (and Surface Pro 8) alternative, for instance, happens to be substantially marked down at the time of this writing in all three of its (Wi-Fi-only) configurations at Best Buy, which is not something we’ve been able to say very frequently (if ever) since the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra
made its (belated) commercial debut back in April.
Unveiled alongside the smaller Tab S8 and Tab S8+ in February, the 14.6-inch ultra-high-end giant was backordered
and/or out of stock for the longest time due to a combination of presumably high demand and undoubtedly low inventory.
That obviously contributed to the late arrival of the first notable discounts
, which is definitely what we can say about today’s Best Buy offers as well. If you hurry, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1-powered Tab S8 Ultra
can be yours for $999.99 (instead of its $1,099.99 list price) with 128 gigs of local digital hoarding room, while the gargantuan slate’s 256 and 512GB storage versions are currently available at $1,079.99 and $1,249.99 respectively (down from $1,199.99 and $1,399.99).
Bottom line, you’re looking at saving up to 150 bucks here… as long as you don’t have a problem spending a small fortune on a big Android tablet with a stylus included at no extra charge but a keyboard still requiring a separate purchase.
Although this is easily the overall best Samsung tablet
money can buy at the moment (and there’s almost certainly no Galaxy Tab S9 or Tab S9 Ultra on the horizon yet), it remains all but impossible to recommend the Tab S8 Ultra over the aforementioned Surface Pro 8
or Apple’s 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2021)
if you’re into raw power, productivity, or… almost anything else.
