With Black Friday around the corner, it's just about the perfect time of the year for the dozens of you who are in the market for a new Android tablet. As a prelude to the peak season for big discounts on products that have modest demand, Costco has a sweet deal on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3, one of the few legitimately premium Android tablets out there. Costco members can scoop up the Tab S3 for just $459.99, which knocks $140 off the original price. The deal includes $20 in Google Play credit, bringing the total discount on the tablet to $160, if you're fine with that sort of math.

The Tab S3 has a strong set of specs, including a 9.7" 1536 x 2048 AMOLED display (which supports HDR video), an S Pen, a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 6,000mAh battery, a 13MP rear camera, a 5MP front-facing camera, and quad speakers. Costco is selling the Wi-Fi model of the tablet. We previously saw the Tab S3 going for $469.99 with a $20 Google Play gift card on eBay.

In his review, Ryan called the Tab S3 "a good tablet with a bad price." At this discounted price, the Samsung tablet looks like a pretty good buy. The deal is available only to Costco members (limit of three per member) and is valid through Monday, November 27th (Cyber Monday). Get it while supplies last.

The Tab S3 is also on sale at eBay, but they are open-box units (not new, but with little-to-no signs of use and with original retail packaging). There, you can get the tablet for $399 when you use coupon code PSHOPEARLY at checkout.
