Monoprice [monoprice.com] has their 10 x 6.25-inch Graphic Drawing Tablet (4000 LPI, 200 RPS, 2048 Levels) for $34.99 + S/H
Get $5.25 off with coupon SIZZLIN for a base price of $29.74.

Shipping is about $7, bringing this to about $37 at checkout. This is about $7 more than the lowest price this has hit including shipping, and matches the previous FP. imho, the money you save waiting for this deal to go lower isn't worth the time you'll have to wait and how quickly you'd have to jump on it.

NOTE: Each time this tablet has hit this price, it has gone OOS! If you want this, I suggest you buy it NOW.

If you're an indie artist keep in mind this should be your #1 choice for your first graphics tablet! DO NOT pass this up! If you use scanning+mouse to do digital art, this will revolutionize your art workflow. Also, the accuracy and workspace of this tablet is notably better compared to Bamboo's cheaper lines, definitely a worthwhile upgrade!

Below is a copy-paste from the previous sale I posted:
Got one for my sister last time this hit FP and she absolutely loves it. She owns a Wacom CTH-460 and Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014), and says this one works just as well as the Wacom Intuos models at her school. She's moving away from her Note as the software capabilities are somewhat restricting for her. She says she really likes the pressure response and accuracy of this monoprice/huion tablet. She's since moved from mostly using her Samsung, to mostly using the monoprice tablet. Money well spent!

This a re-branded Huion H610 (not pro), so use their drivers located here, as they are much better and more frequently updated than Monoprice's drivers: https://www.huiontablet.com/h610.html

Compare/contrast to an Intuos: This one doesn't have tilt functionality, but active area is slightly larger than an Intuos Pro Medium. LPI on this one is 4000 vs 5080 on the Intuos (H610 Pro has 5080 LPI, and theoretically the pro version only has cosmetic changes from the standard h610, so maybe they're actually the same?). H610 does NOT have touch input. Pen only! The verdict? If you're looking at this one you obviously don't want to pay the full cost of an Intuos. Take the money you saved and buy Lazy Nezumi Pro to go with it and you'll be more than happy.

If you don't need tilt or touch, an Intuos Pro Medium won't bring much more to the table. You'd be better off upgrading from this to a Cintiq or Cintiq "clone."

For 1/10th the price of an Intuos, this is insane. You could consider this chump change if you'd just like to try to see what an Intuos is like before actually putting that much cash down.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Why does it say "Indie Intuos" in the title? Not sure what that means

This tablet is very similar to a Wacom Intuos Pro medium. The price difference, however, makes it very suited to indie (independent/hobbyist/casual) artists.

Oh, for indie developers. That makes sense. I thought you meant the tablet was indie somehow.
