In case you haven't heard, the Amazon Big Spring Sale is on the way. That means there's a huge opportunity to save on some of the best tablets. Although the sale doesn't officially start until Wednesday, March 20, there are some great early deals up for grabs right now, especially on iPads. (Also note that Best Buy is matching some of Amazon's prices in its iPad sale).

Right now the 10.9-inch iPad Air (WiFi/64GB) is $449 at Amazon. This $150 discount brings the best tablet we've reviewed down to its lowest price ever. iPad deals don't get much better than this.

You can also grab the base 10.9-inch iPad (WiFi/64GB) for $349 at Amazon. This tablet is cheaper than the iPad Air, but offers a similar sleek design, fast performance and long battery life. Right now it's on sale for $100 off, its lowest price ever.

This great stylus is perfect for taking notes, drawing, and editing — if you’re an artist, using an iPad with an Apple Pencil can be just as effective as a high-end graphics tablet for a much lower price. The matte finish, weighted feel and wireless charging also make it a great upgrade over the 1st Generation Apple Pencil.

The Magic Keyboard for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro turns this tablet into a laptop with a comfy typing experience and built-in touchpad. The keys are backlit and there's a USB-C port for pass-through charging. We also love the floating cantilever design for adjusting the angle.
