Graphire2 4x5 USB

For anyone interested in buying a drawing tablet, go to eCost.
Very cheap. Usually sells for $99.00.

Thanks for the tip Tony!! I ordered one for myself and then I went back to order one for my brother and the price had jumped to $49 - still a good price, but not as good as $02 (that was the Canadian price)

I already have a Wacom tablet, but for that price I'm sure I can find someone to take one of them off my hands.

I just checked it out too. There is a promo, and a non-promo Graphire 2 available (unless I'm missing something). . Just go to the site, and do a search for "ET45ASTEEL". That should bring up both options (promo and non-promo)

Ladies and Gentlemen:

It's back. The price went down to $49.98 as of 10:53P.M. If you want it get it now. Only 19 left.

BTW, I'm not in any way connected to eCost.

Just a note of caution here. eCost hits you with a costly handling fee that you are unaware of until you go through and finalize the complete order. Sometimes it takes away the savings you think you're getting.

DJ - when Tony first posted this link, the price was $.01 - that's ONE CENT.

Even though I have to pay in Canadian dollars which made the price TWO CENTS, the total price including shipping was still under $30. Considering that I couldn't buy the thing here on the ground for under $175 that's a pretty good price to me.

You're right though, I'd think twice before I bought it for $99.

I appreciate the chance to get one at this price. I don't usually pay much attention to these deal sites - I guess I'm not a spontaneous shopper - but I thought this was one deal I couldn't pass up.

Take care
Margaret

Yes, you are right to buy it at that price even if they shipping and handling are high. That's when you know you still have a good deal in savings. I'm glad you got such a great deal. Let us know when you get it. We'll be waiting.

Sad ending to the story....

It's been several weeks since I ordered this Wacom Graphire tablet for $0.02 so I wrote to them asking for the status of my order. This is the reply I got:

*******
Hello,

Your order has been canceled by management due to pricing error on 9/18/02
and no charges was placed on your credit card account. We do apologize for
the inconvenience.


Thank You,

Kim

*******

Well, it was fun to dream about getting a deal

Take care, Margaret
