Tip 1: which tablet do you want to buy? Inform yourself
iPad, Samsung Galaxy Tab or a Windows tablet? In our tablet purchase advice, you will find out briefly and concisely what is important when making a purchase:
- Choose a tablet with ample storage for photos, videos, and apps – or choose a model with expandable storage.
- Decide what size the tablet should be – a larger display is recommended for creative tasks and video streaming.
- The display resolution is also an important criterion – it should be a full HD display with 1,920 x 1,080 pixels these days in order to be able to enjoy games and films with it.
- Decisive for fast and fluid work: a good processor performance – the device should in any case have more than one gigahertz of performance, as well as a working memory of at least one gigabyte.
- Think about whether a WLAN-enabled model is sufficient for you or whether you want to use the device with a SIM card when you are out and about.
- If you want to take a lot of photos, make sure you have a good main camera with at least 12 megapixels.
- Tablets with an attachable keyboard are also suitable for comfortable work.
Tip 2: Check Black Friday tablet offers in advance
Many Black Friday deals can sound tempting at first glance – especially when a particularly big discount is promised. But you can only find out whether you can actually save a lot if you compare prices beforehand. The most important piece of advice in order not to be blinded by alleged discounts in the heat of the moment is therefore: Find out which tablet models are suitable for you and what they normally cost. For this you can use price search engines like idealo.de to get an overview of the current value. Because: The discounts often refer to the manufacturer’s recommended retail price – the longer a tablet has been available, the lower the retail price can be.
Tip 3: Black Friday tablet deals: Pay attention to the “right” offers
A popular scam, especially in online shops: Certain offers are only available for a few hours or in small quantities, which increases the pressure on customers to buy. Similar to booking air travel, a countdown or a limited number of items suggests to the buyer that they have to hurry so as not to have to pay a much higher price later. This often results in spontaneous purchases and impulsive decisions that one might regret later. Because with a little research, a better offer could be found under certain circumstances.
So if you want to buy an iPad on Black Friday, for example, you shouldn’t grab the first offer, but take your time with the purchase.
Does the offered model have enough memory? Is it already an older model? Which display size is ideal and does it work with a SIM card? Perhaps an iPad Air * instead of a more expensive iPad Pro * is enough for you – dealing with the deal in peace can also save a lot of money.
Tip 4: Black Friday 2021 – Set a budget
Surely you have already let yourself be tempted into a purchase, even though the product was more expensive than you – in retrospect – thought it would be. So if you are looking for a Samsung tablet on Black Friday, for example, after your price research, it is best to set a maximum price in advance that you do not want to exceed. This way you don’t get annoyed later that you paid more.
Tip 5: pay attention to the shipping costs
Is your targeted Windows tablet * on Black Friday really a real bargain? Wonderful – some online providers still have one last trick to drive up the price a little.
Make sure to pay attention to the stated shipping costs during checkout. If these are above average for shipping within Germany, you should perhaps keep your hands off the deal.
Also check on discount sites and cashback portals such as Shoop or Getmore whether there are additional discounts and offers at the retailer. Often, this means that shipping costs can be saved – the credit you have received can also be used for your next purchase.
Tip 6: Make use of your right of return if necessary
Of course, you also have a 14-day right of return with “Black Friday” deals from reputable providers. You make it particularly easy with a purchase on account, because you only pay when you are completely satisfied with your tablet. When buying in advance, it is advisable to pay via PayPal, for example, in order to be able to make use of buyer protection in the event of problems.
Tip 7: Black Friday 2021 – price alarm clock for tablet offers
For example, if you are aiming for Samsung tablet deals on Black Friday, you can set a price alarm clock for the respective products on search engines such as idealo.de.
You will immediately receive an email when a product you prefer, such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab *, is available at your desired price.
Conclusion: Check deals on Amazon and Co. carefully
So don’t get carried away with buying on Black Friday if you haven’t compared prices in advance. Remember: even after Black Friday, many tablet models are often just as cheap or available at an even lower price – after all, the Christmas business is only just getting started.
