Black Friday might be the biggest shopping day of the year, but if you’re looking for the best Amazon deals, then don’t forget Cyber Monday 2017 – which this year falls on 27 November. Once again, we’ll be rounding up the best Amazon Cyber Monday deals of 2017 for designers, illustrators and artists right here – and starting from now.
Rounding off a long weekend of shopping deals, Cyber Monday is a chance for budget-conscious creatives to grab a real bargain. And where better to shop for these deals than Amazon? With a range of products in one place, each competitively priced to give you the best value for money, Amazon is the place to be for designers looking to snap up a discount.
Just as with Black Friday, though, remember that Amazon doesn’t reveal how much stock it has of each item. So if you find something you need, you’ll need to be prepared to purchase it there and then – or risk missing out.
How to grab an Amazon Cyber Monday bargain
The best thing you can do if you’re after a brilliant Amazon Cyber Monday 2017 deal is bookmark this page and refer back to it on the 27th November. We’ll be updating it with all the best deals for designers to snap up – scroll down to see what we’ve found so far.
However, it’s also a good idea to sign up for an Amazon Prime subscription. That’s because when you sign up to Amazon Prime there’s a good chance you’ll be given a sneak preview as to what’s on offer, giving you that all-important edge over other shoppers.
Not only that, but some deals are only available to Prime members, or exclusive to Prime members for a certain amount of time.
An Amazon Prime membership will set you back £79/$99 a year, but if you’re lucky you could save that much money on deals alone. Plus you’ll have access to Amazon Prime Video, Amazon Prime Music, and other offers that crop up throughout the year.
The best Amazon Cyber Monday deals
The question on everyone’s lips though is just what will be on offer for designers and illustrators by the time Cyber Monday 2017 rolls around?
And the retailer already has some cracking deals on creative kit…
- Amazon Cyber Monday laptop deals
One brilliant laptop deal already on Amazon sees the 13-inch Microsoft Surface Pro Pixel Sense tablet (8GB RAM, 256 SDD) on sale for £1,119. Normally retailing at £1,249, that’s a great saving.
We gave it four out of five stars in our Surface Pro review: it’s a very tempting machine for designers and creative professionals.
We’d hope to see workstations, laptops, monitors and a host of computing accessories discounted on Amazon over Cyber Monday 2017.
- Graphics tablets Cyber Monday deals
One of the best bargains we’ve seen so far on Amazon as Black November kicks off is the Wacom Cintiq Pro 13-inch on sale at £719.99, down from £899.99. That’s a fantastic deal for digital artists and illustrators.
If you’ve got your eye on an iPad Pro this Cyber Monday, take a look at this great bargain to be had already on Apple’s 10.5-inch 2017 model. It’s currently on sale for £585, down from £619.
- Mobile phone Amazon Cyber Monday deals
Another deal already up on Amazon lets you bag the Samsung Galaxy S8+ smartphone for just £600.00. The phone launched in April 2017 for £779 in the UK, but Amazon has slashed £179 off the price (and we’d hope to see more offers like this over Black Friday).
TechRadar gave the Samsung Galaxy S8+ 4.5 our of 5 stars in its review, which you can read here.
- Camera Cyber Monday deals
If you’re in the market for a new camera to photograph your work, Amazon already has a great deal on the excellent Nikon D7100 Digital SLR Camera Body. It’s currently on sale for £629.99 – down from £849.99. It sports a 24.1 MP DX format CMOS sensor, 3.2 inch LCD and dual SD memory card slots. TechRadar reviewed the camera and awarded it four out of five stars.
