Amazon’s Prime Day 2022 is upon us, and the company isn’t going to let anyone outdo it for tablet discounts. Since Amazon’s Fire line is probably the best-selling tablet on the planet, today is naturally a great day to snag a discount on one—we’re seeing up to 50 percent off (or more!) on some models straight from the source. Deals on other Android tablets, or even Windows-powered machines or iPads, are likely to follow.
And Prime Day isn’t just Amazon anymore. It’s become customary for Amazon’s big competitors like Best Buy, Newegg, and even secondary markets like eBay to offer huge deals on Prime Day as well, so we’ll be taking a peek across the fence to find the best discounts. For the best deals at Amazon itself, make sure you’re subscribed to Prime (or get it for free if you aren’t).
Please note: Deals come and go quickly, and we’ll do our best to keep this article updated with the best information. Amazon’s discounts on its own hardware are likely to stick around for the entire length of the sale.
