Buying Tips: How to buy a tablet on Prime Day

One of the biggest mistakes people make when shopping the Prime Day sale is getting overexcited by the price drops and wasting money on things they don’t need. To help you avoid doing this, we’ve put together some shopping tips on how to buy a tablet this Prime Day.

Think about what you’re going to use it for

First, it’s important to decide what you’re going to use it for. Tablets are extremely versatile, so they can be used to write, edit, stream, game and much more on multiple devices. Overall, Fire tablets and iPads are top all-round devices so if you want a tablet that covers everything, these are the ones you should consider. For work, look for a tablet from a brand that makes laptops and PCs, like Lenovo and Microsoft as they’ll be more suited to heavy computing tasks. If the tablet is going to be used by kids, you need some parental controls so a Fire Kids tablet is a good choice and if you want to read on your tablet, it might be worth considering a Kindle.

Consider size, features and accessories

Next, consider the size and features you want as this can have an effect on the price. Most tablets are around 9-10 inches so this is the standard size you should be looking for. Battery life and storage is also important and you should try and get at least up to 10 hours of battery and as much storage as possible. For connectivity, make sure you’re picking WiFi instead of cellular connectivity, as WiFi is almost always available and cellular can rack up your monthly data bills. Finally, accessories can make your tablet experience more seamless depending on what you’re using it for. If you want a tablet/laptop mix, consider a detachable keyboard and if you like to draw and edit, a compatible pen is also worth looking at. We imagine accessories will also be involved in the Prime Day sale so you can buy one for cheap alongside a tablet.

Shop certified refurbished

To save some extra money, shop certified refurbished tablets. Certified refurbished laptops and tablets are always well revived back to their original condition so you can trust what you’re getting when you buy one. If it's from a respected brand or provider then there's no need to worry either. They’re also much cheaper than the original retail prices and certified refurbished Fire tablets are already up to 50% off in the run-up to Prime Day.
