The ultra-thin Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e comes with a free gift card at Best Buy
Yesterday, Samsung started selling the Galaxy Tab S5e, a mid-range Android tablet that's just 5.5 millimeters thin, thus being thinner than Apple's newest iPad Air (6.1 mm). Samsung is asking $399.99 for the 64 GB version of the Galaxy Tab S5e, and $479.99 for the 128 GB version - acceptable prices for what the slate has to offer. While Samsung itself currently has no deals or promotions involving the Tab S5e*, you might want to know that the tablet comes with a free gift card at Best Buy.  

Best Buy is selling both the Galaxy Tab S5e 64 GB and Galaxy Tab S5e 128 GB with a $25 e-gift card that can be redeemed via e-mail. The tablet is available in three color variants: black, gold, and silver. Now, $25 is not much, and you still have to pay the full price for the Tab S5e, but this is obviously better than not getting anything with your purchase. The $25 gift card can be used to buy anything that's in stock at Best Buy (if a product that you need costs more than $25, you'll have to chip in with the difference yourself).

Running Android 9 Pie, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e sports a vivid 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display with 1600 x 2560 pixels, and is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 processor. Other features include a fingerprint scanner, face recognition, a 13 MP rear camera with 4K video recording, and 4 GB of RAM on the version with 64 GB of storage space, or 6 GB of RAM on the 128 GB model. The tablet packs a 7040 mAh battery that can provide up to 14.5 hours of video playback on a single charge. Mind you, this slate does not feature a standard 3.5mm audio jack, but it has an adapter in the box. For a closer look at Samsung's newest tablet, you should check out our Galaxy Tab S5e hands-on.

* you do get 4 months of YouTube Premium for free, but this isn't a Tab S5e exclusive promotion, as it's available with various other new Samsung devices, including the Galaxy S10 smartphone series.

Samsung totally has a promotion for this tablet lol. It's a terrible trade in program... Up to $250 off... But still.

Trade-in offers are so ubiquitous now that they can't really be considered deals or promotions - unless you can get a decent amount of money back for an old phone/tablet, which is certainly not the case here.

True. You get only like $50 back for the Tab A 10.5" and $100 or less for iPad 2018, which is crazy to me.

Brought this tablet and returned it because internet kept dropping. When you hold in landscape mode your left hand covers the antenna and interfered with the wifi. To much money for something you have to watch how you hold.

Strange that does not happen on mine? & I've had the tablet for a week.
