We've found the best deals out there on Cintiq and Cintiq Pros from Wacom – and discovered which deals are just old models being flogged cheap on Amazon.
Spring is not usually known as a big tech sales season, but you can find cheap deals out there on creative tech to enjoy if you look hard enough. That said, still make sure you're not being ripped off by paying big prices for old models.
Here we're keeping you from that fate by concentrating on current deals on some of the best drawing tech out there on the market for creatives - Wacom graphics tablets like the Cintiq Pro 24, along with interesting alternatives from lesser known brands.
Best Wacom deals for the Cintiq Pro
UK brand Park Cameras are offering £150 off the top-of-the-range Wacom Cintiq Pro 24 with Touch Display at £2,049.00. Note that there aren't any current deals on the standard version without Touch, making this particular discount even more eye-catching - and you even get a free Wacom Desk Arm when buying the Pro 24 or Pro 32, saving you £350.00. Find a link to the 32" model here, but note that Amazon is matching its £3,149.99 price tag - buy link here.
If you're wanting an Ergo Stand as opposed to a flexible desk arm, then note that as of today the end of May the Wacom store is offering one for free with purchases of any variant of the Pro 24, plus with the Pro 32 with Touch model. Buy link here.
Best Wacom Cintiq deals & alternatives
Note that at first glance on Amazon you might think you can get the latest Cintiq 13 a 100 quid cheaper for £649.00 – but that's an older version without full HD display. The best place to buy it now is at Park Cameras for £629.00.
Be careful also if searching for the new Wacom Intuos Pro Small 2019, as the older version is still available on the likes of Amazon and elsewhere for what seems like 20 quid less at £179.99 – if in doubt check the specs. If it supports only 2,092 levels of pressure support then it's the older model.
If these prices don't fit your budget but you're looking for a Wacom alternative, then know you can get a 30% discount on Huion gloves when buying in conjunction with various Cintiq-esque tablets from the brand on Amazon.
One of the higher end Huion models included in the Amazon offer is the Kamvas PRO13 (above) priced for 30 quid less at £299, a Cintiq-like model we haven't tried but it seems to be worth a try according to some reviews you can find out there. Get the deal here.
