According to DealNews, it seems that with the plethora of cheaper tablets on the market this season, prices for the sought-after presents are unlikely to see many cuts. If there are discounts, they will likely be in the form of media credits toward future purchases.
Of the options available, if you are looking to save, look toward the cheaper versions. They have less memory -- only around 4 gigabytes -- so they won't hold a ton of music and movies. They may also be used and refurbished. But they still have 7-inch screens, the same size as more expensive competitors.
If you're not sure that a tablet will fit your lifestyle, consider starting off with a lower-priced version. "It's a good thing to buy before you buy an iPad," de Grandpre says, which can cost hundreds of dollars more.
As for e-readers, pricing is a bit more simplistic. Older models are the ones that will most likely see the most discounts.
