Wacom Black Friday: when is it?

In 2021, Black Friday falls on Friday 26 November. Cyber Monday comes hot on its heels on Monday 29 November. However, as we've seen in previous years, the deals are starting long ahead of the official dates. 

Some retailers are likely to still keep back their very best deals until the official dates of Black Friday or Cyber Monday, but on the other hand, some good deals may well be gone by then. You have to judge how good each deal is to decide whether to sweep for an early saving or hold on in the hope that a better discount might appear. If you spot an early discount here that's particularly good, it could be best to snap it up rather than risk missing out completely.

Wacom Black Friday: what deals can we expect?

We're already seeing some Wacom Black Friday discounts, including savings of up to around 15 per cent on the Wacom One, Wacom Intuos and One by Wacom ranges. Savings on the professional-level Cintiq devices are more erratic, but we've seen savings of around $50/$50 on the Cintiq 16 so far and could see bigger savings as we approach Wacom Black Friday 2021.

Last year, Amazon shaved a cool $320 off Wacom's top-level Wacom Cintiq Pro 24 in the US, while in the UK we saw savings of around £40 on the more affordable level Wacom One and Wacom Intuos Pro, taking their price down to just £319 and $169 respectively at Amazon and Currys. We've provided a list of the best retailers to check for Wacom Black Friday deals at the top of this article.
