The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+ usually sells for $650 to $700, so this is a rare big deal. We like it very much.It comes with a stylus on which you can do some work if you add a keyboard – skip default keyboard and use a bluetooth (It will save you money).

This 65-inch TV usually sells for around $1,799, but it rarely drops this low.This 55 inches is $550 cheaper Now, so if you can spare 10 inches, it might be worth it in your wallet.
