If you're looking for a creative tablet to gift a loved one this Christmas (or for yourself) then we've got a great deal for you. The Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 is now just $149.99 at Amazon for the 32GB model. That's an $80 saving on the usual $229 retail price for the tab. 

We think the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 is a great choice for creatives, although the 32GB model has only 3G of RAM – which isn't that reliable for running multiple tasks or apps. You can upgrade to the 64GB model (with 4GB of RAM) for an extra $30, reduced to $179 down from $279 at Walmart
