With Christmas coming up fast, sales season is picking up the pace, especially with Black Friday and now Cyber Monday upon us.

There's no better time to snaffle a quality Christmas present for a loved one or even yourself, and why not a shiny new tablet?

Plenty of the online retailers and manufacturers love to knock off a fair few quid in order to get their tablets into your hands, so check out the following deals if you're looking for a bargain. Be quick though, most retailers will end their sales at midnight on Monday, 28 November.

Apple traditionally unveils plenty of deals on Black Friday but this year it decided against reducing the price of any of its iPads. Instead, it offered gift cards with every iPad purchase for one day only, on 25 November. You should check out one of the retailers below to see if you can still nab any deals on iPads.

Amazon has offered new products throughout its Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, with some available for a small amount of time, in Lightning Deals. These have a small window, which ends when stock runs out or the time slot has expired, so check back often.

Here are its best deals so far.

Argos is also hosting plenty of deals for Brits online and in-store. You can also order them online to pick up in your local Argos shop. Here are the best of the retailer's tablet deals so far.

DixonsCarphone has all manner of deals for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, with its online Currys/PC World brand having several tablets on offer in what it calls its "Black Tag event". There are even discounts on iPads.

Apple might have decided against discounting its own products but authorised reseller KRCS has blanket deals across all its range. iPad Pro and iPad Air 2 models have 8 per cent off, while iPad mini 2 and iPad mini 4 tablets are 6 per cent off.

KRCS will also honour the discount even if stock is no longer available - you'll get the deal when your iPad is back in stock if you order during Black Friday or Cyber Monday.

Microsoft has heavily discounted its Surface Pro tablets when bought through its online Microsoft Store. 

UK supermarket chain Tesco also has a few deals during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday event. Its Tesco Direct online store often has a bargain or two awaiting your cash, with some great offers at this time. Here's what we've found so far.
