It's tempting to snag a tablet deal when you see one pop up at Amazon or Best Buy, but by and large the best place to purchase a tablet is from your mobile provider. While the deals look a bit more complicated at first (they generally require opening a new line and paying installments or trading in an older model), they're dramatically better — and will help you hold onto more of your hard-earned cash. And isn't that what we all want this holiday season?

T-Mobile users have their hands full when it comes to tablet deals, with record-low prices on iPads, Galaxy Tabs, and more. We've rounded up the best options we could find for you (and your bank account) at T-Mobile this week to keep you from analysis paralysis.

Why we like it

It's no longer the latest and greatest iPad on the shelves, but the 9th generation iPad (WiFi + cellular) is still our top tablet recommendation for most people. It's also one of our top picks for teens. Released in 2021, it packs the A13 chip, which is powerful enough to do all your basic tablet tasks — from browsing TikTok to streaming Netflix to taking notes. We wouldn't recommend it for more extensive tasks like editing 4K videos, but if you just want a tablet that can keep up with your daily activities, this is the one. T-Mobile is currently running a deal on this bad boy when you open a new mobile internet line, which knocks its price down to a record-low $99 (broken down into monthly payments). For comparison, the WiFi-only model reached an all-time low of $249 during Cyber Week. While it may arrive by Christmas via shipping, you can guarantee it by choosing store pickup instead.
