Anyone with experience in purchasing a Wacom product will be aware that decent discounts are very few and far between. But that's not to say there aren't great deals to be had, you just need to know where and when to look. If you missed out on Amazon Prime, never fear, Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2019 is fast approaching, and offers up probably one of the best chances you'll get at making a worthy saving on one of Wacom's popular products. 

Here we're going to take a look at what Wacom Black Friday looked like last year, plus what we expect to see in 2019. Considering these deals don't come along often, a Wacom tablet Cyber Monday discount is a valuable opportunity for budget-conscious buyers to click 'add to basket'.

Wacom Black Friday: the best deals in 2018

It's understandable to be a bit sceptical about Wacom Black Friday deals. How do you know you're getting the best price, and are the savings actually worth having? Below we've listed some of the best Wacom Black Friday deals to help you get a feel for the kind of discounts we typically see on these products.

EXPIRED Wacom Cintiq Pro Graphics Tablet 24": $2,499.95 $1,999.95
Save $500: The biggest saving by far last year was on this Cintiq Pro, which had $500 shaved off the price. A popular tool among creative professionals, this was a saving well worth waiting for.

EXPIRED Wacom Cintiq Pro 13": $999.95 $799.95
Save $200: This is was one of the best Black Friday Wacom deals we saw last year. A hefty $200 off this pro Cintiq 13" display that comes with a Pro Pen 2, and connect it to either a PC or a Mac.

EXPIRED Wacom Intuos Pro (large): $499.95 $399.95
Save $100: With 8,000 levels of pressure sensitivity, the Intuos Pro large tablet offers a wealth of creative opportunities. And with $100 off last Black Friday, it was also very wallet-friendly, too.

EXPIRED Wacom Cintiq 13 HD interactive pen display: £729.99 £529.99
Save £200: Across the pond saw some impressive savings too, including this $200 off this quality Wacom device boasting an HD, 1,080 LED display capable of realising 16.7 million colours.

Wacom Black Friday: the deals we expect in 2019

Unsurprisingly, this is the question on the lips of designers looking for a Wacom Black Friday deal: which products will be cut in price? While we can't predict with 100 per cent accuracy, we can make an educated guess based on which products are currently on sale, as well as looking at what sold well last year and which models Wacom could be looking to clear in order to make room for updated devices.

To find out which products are currently on sale, be sure to check out Wacom's special offers page. Currently this page is mainly filled up with accessories and styluses, but over the coming weeks we're sure to see some more exciting products.

Another page worth remembering is Wacom's special offers page for refurbished products. With Wacom due to release new models in the near future, this could be a good place to snap up an superseded device for a rock bottom price, so long as you don't mind that it's been refurbished.

The prospect of a Wacom Cintiq Pro Black Friday discount is another area we've got our eyes on. However, this family of products has already and is set to expand soon with larger devices due to roll out. It's not unreasonable to imagine that Wacom could look to shift older stock in this line once these updated versions are ready.

Last year, the Wacom Intuos Pro Black Friday discounts proved to be the most popular offer, so it makes sense for Wacom to attempt to repeat this success. Other items that flew off the digital shelves include the Bamboo Slate and the accompanying Bamboo Sketch, so be sure to keep these in mind over the shopping season.

As of now, there still don't seem to be any cast-iron discounts on Wacom products, but we're on the lookout for Wacom deals as these leaks unfold, so make a note of this page if you want to keep on top of the latest price cuts.

The best Wacom Black Friday deals will sell out quickly, especially because graphics tablets discounts are some of the most hotly anticipated offers.

Wacom Black Friday: Wacom Cintiq Pro deals

There's no telling whether Wacom's Cintiq Pro anniversary discounts last year will be taken further when it comes to Black Friday this year. 2018 saw the cost of the Wacom Cintiq Pro reduced to a similar amount as Wacom is currently offering, so perhaps that is as low as the cost will go. 

Remember, though, that the Cintiq family has expanded in the last 12 months, so fingers crossed shoppers will be able to pick up older models for a reduced price. If you can't wait to find out, check out today's best deals below.

Wacom Black Friday: Wacom Intuos deals

The Wacom Intuos family sits at the lower end of the company's price range, but that doesn't mean we can't expect to see the cost taken down even further. Acting as Wacom's perfect jumping on point for digital artists, a Wacom Intuos Black Friday discount would be a smart way for more creatives to get to grips with its products. Below are its current prices.

Wacom Black Friday: Wacom Intuos Pro deals

The Wacom Intuos Pro Black Friday and Cyber Monday story is similar to the Cintiq Pro. Last year the range enjoying a reduced price to celebrate Wacom's 35th anniversary, so this year the Intuos Pro could go either way over Black Friday. Unlike the Cintiq though, the Intuos family isn't set to expand, meaning that it would be less of a surprise if prices continued to budge.
