All you need to know about Amazon Prime Early Access drawing tablet deals

When is the Amazon Prime Early Access sale?

Amazon's second annual Prime event will be held for the first time in October 2022. The Amazon Prime Early Access sale will be held over two days, from Tuesday 11 October at midnight Pacific Time in the US (8am in the UK) until 11.59pm (PT) on Wednesday 13 October / 7:59am (BST) on Thursday 13 October.

Do I need to be a Prime member to get Prime Early Access drawing tablet deals?

Yes and no. To get any official Prime Early Access drawing deals – that is deals that are actually marked as being part of the sale – you'll need to be a member. The good news there is that you can sign up for a no-strings-attached 30-day free Amazon Prime trial (opens in new tab). You can cancel the trial after the sale if you won't want the other benefits of a subscription.

But having said that, Amazon tends to run good deals during Prime Day that aren't actually part of the members-only sale itself; instead they're open to everyone. We expect that the Prime Early Access sale will be similar.

Will there be Prime Early Access drawing table deals?

This will be the first time that Amazon has run the Prime Early Access sale, so we don't know for sure whether it will have drawing tablet deals over those two days in October. However, everything suggests that the event will be similar to Prime Day, which took place in July. During Prime Day this year, we saw a lot of drawing tablet deals, including deals on Wacom, Huion, Xencelabs and XP-Pen.
