Galaxy Tab S6 pre-orders come with $50 e-gift card and discounted keyboard at Best Buy
Formally unveiled a few days before the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+, Samsung's latest high-end tablet is still not ready to ship to its earliest adopters from either the manufacturer itself or authorized third-party retailers. But after a false start on Amazon, Galaxy Tab S6 pre-orders kicked off in earnest just last week, and if you hurry, you can get both a discounted book cover keyboard and a nice gift at Best Buy.
The half-off keyboard attachment is up for grabs from Samsung.com as well, but Best Buy is also throwing in a $50 e-coupon for free with your choice of a 128 or 256GB Wi-Fi-only Galaxy Tab S6. That's not exactly an earth-shattering freebie for a premium Android slate fetching a whopping $649.99 and up, but it's definitely better than nothing.
Besides, the Tab S6 arguably delivers great bang for your buck, with a built-in S Pen, state-of-the-art Snapdragon 855 processor, at least 6 gigs of RAM, a razor-thin 5.7mm profile, beautiful Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, respectable 7,040mAh battery, a quad AKG-tuned speaker system, and a fancy in-screen fingerprint sensor.
Coated in Cloud Blue, Mountain Gray, and Rose Blush, the Android 9.0 Pie-based powerhouse pairs the aforementioned 6GB memory with 128 gigs of local digital hoarding room at a $650 price, while $730 buys you a 256GB storage variant with an upgraded 8 gig RAM count. The optional gray-colored Book Cover Keyboard is technically priced at $179.99, which means you can currently get it for a little under 90 bucks.
By the way, the $50 Best Buy e-gift card will be added to your cart automatically once you hit the pre-order button on the actual tablet, so you don't necessarily have to purchase the keyboard as well. Of course, if you plan to replace your conventional laptop with this ultraportable 2-in-1 hybrid, getting the productivity-enhancing accessory feels like a must.
