When is Black Friday 2020?
Black Friday normally takes place on the Friday immediately after Thanksgiving (26 Nov), so this year it should fall on 27 November. Admittedly, 2020 has been anything but a normal year, but we're pretty sure that this will happen as usual.
That means Cyber Monday will be three days later, on 30 Monday, and there'll be plenty of great deals available then too. In fact, recent years have seen many retailers launch their deals before Black Friday, and keep them going after Cyber Monday; sometimes up to a week later, or even more.
However, the best Wacom Black Friday deals usually sell out fast, so it's important to be on the ball. With that in mind, we'd advise checking back to this page from around 20 November, so you can catch the best Wacom Black Friday deals before anyone else does.

Which tablets will attract the best Wacom Black Friday deals?
At this stage, we don't know which Wacom tablets will have the biggest Black Friday discounts. But in previous years, the biggest price drops have been on slightly older models, as retailers try to shift their stock. That said, there's no reason there won't be Wacom Black Friday deals of some kind to be had across the whole range.
