Samsung has started slashing its Galaxy Tab A8 prices on Amazon with a digital samurai sword. You can save $97 right now on the 128GB Silver model, down to just $233 in the US. 

While there are some great discounts to be had right now, these aren't the lowest prices we've seen on the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8. The 128GB model was selling for $199.99 on Amazon last month.  So, if you want to wait for the record low on this tablet, it might be wise to wait in anticipation for Black Friday on 24 November.

But even with these latest price cuts it's nowhere near as budget-friendly as its little brother, the Galaxy Tab A7 Lite. It's worth the upgrade though, with enhanced visuals, speed, and audio.
