Apple has just unveiled its latest entry-level iPad, which comes with a big redesign and a new more expensive price tag to match. The base device – which sports a fresh new look similar to the iPad Pro and iPad Air – is priced from £499, which is £130 more than its predecessor. It’s very expensive and if that new price tag is making you think of switching from Apple to Samsung the South Korean tech giant is running some great deals on its Galaxy Tab S8 that could help convince you.
The Galaxy Tab S line is Samsung’s premium tablet range that’s a direct competitor to Apple’s top-of-the-line iPad Pro range.
Prices for the Galaxy Tab S8 line begin from £649, which is also pretty pricey. However, right now Samsung is running some big money-saving promotions to help sweeten the deal.
For a limited time only you’ll be able to claim almost £400 worth of free gifts, depending on which Samsung tablet you choose.
Until October 25 Samsung is also giving away a free keyboard cover with the Galaxy Tab S8, S8+ or S8 Ultra.
This add-on will help transform your Samsung Galaxy Tab into providing a laptop-style experience.
The cover that’s included with the S8 Ultra on its own is usually priced at a whopping £299. While the cover you get for free with S8+ or S8 are worth £139 and £119 respectively.
As a comparison, Apple’s iPad Pro starts from £899 with the Magic Keyboard case costing an extra £319 on top. Ouch!
If that wasn’t enough, Samsung is also dishing out 12 months of Disney+ access entirely for free when you pick up one of the firm’s tablets.
This freebie – which is worth £79.90 – will give you a year’s worth of access to the amazing library of movies and boxsets on Disney+.
This includes every single Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars movie, over 30 seasons worth of The Simpsons along with exclusive Disney+ Originals such as the latest hit boxset Andor as well as other shows like She Hulk: Attorney At Law, Hawkeye, WandaVision and The Mandalorian plus much, much more.
The Disney+ freebie is available with the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8, S8+ and S8 Ultra until the end of January next year.
Until the end of this month, you can also get £150 off the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8, S8+ or S8 Ultra when you trade in any tablet.
This is a guaranteed trade-in value and will even be available when you exchange a broken tablet.
As with all other products purchased via the official Samsung store, you can also make the S8, S8+ or S8 Ultra even more affordable by choosing to pay for it with interest-free monthly payments.
You can divide the cost of your new Samsung tablet into 12 to 36 monthly payments thanks to Samsung Finance. This brings the price of a Galaxy Tab S8 down to as low as £16.23 per month.
