Cyber Monday has finished, but there are still a few Cyber Monday drawing tablet deals out there for anyone arriving late, including savings on tablets from Wacom and Xencelabs – just don't leave it much longer, because there isn't much stock left on many of these!
Drawing tablets are great tools for artists as they allow you to sketch and draw using a stylus and touchscreen, which then converts your scribbles into digital art that you can view and edit on your computer. They can be very expensive, especially high-end models from Wacom (see our dedicated Wacom Cyber Monday page for more if you have your heart set on a Wacom device). This means Cyber Monday can be a blessing for anyone on a budget.

When do Black Friday and Cyber Monday drawing tablet deals start?
Black Friday 2021 is officially 26 November, with Cyber Monday following on 29 November. These two dates will likely see the biggest drawing tablet deals, but retailers are starting their sales earlier and earlier, and we're now seeing Black Friday drawing tablet deas as early as the start of November.
It's always hard to know whether to grab an early deal or hold out for the chance of a bigger saving, but as a general guide, we'd see if you see a very attractive saving in the run up to Black Friday, it's probably a good idea to grab it. The weekend between Black Friday and Cyber Monday also hosts plenty of excellent deals, so even if you don't find something on 26 November, there's a good chance more drawing tablet deals will pop up.
How to get the best Cyber Monday drawing tablet deals
There are a huge number of retailers out there that will be offering drawing tablet Cyber Monday deals, and while that offers you a lot of choice for finding the best deals, it can also be a bit overwhelming. So, to make things easier, follow these steps.
First of all, set out a budget. This will give you a good idea of the kind of deals that will be right for you. After all, if even after a big price cut, the drawing tablet you have your eye on is still too expensive, then you should look elsewhere.
If that happens, think about buying second hand, or looking at cheaper alternatives. While Wacom is the market leader, the likes of Huion and XP-Pen offer excellent alternatives that are usually less expensive, and those too should see price cuts on Black Friday.
Next, think about what you need from a drawing tablet. Do you need a large surface to draw on, or would a smaller, more compact tablet work better? Do you need accessories such as additional keys and buttons?
It may also be worth thinking if you need a dedicated drawing tablet, or if you'd be better off with an iPad or Android tablet with a stylus? These are more versatile, and could see big discounts as well (keep an eye on our iPad Cyber Monday deals page for details).

We've also made life easier for you here, as we'll be updating this page in the run up to Black Friday and during the day itself to highlight all of the best drawing tablet deals we've found, so make sure you check back here first before you buy!
