How to get good printer deals on Black Friday

When choosing a printer, there are variables to consider. How large do you need it to be? Is a simple A4 printer enough, or do you need something with a scanner that can print in larger sizes? Will you prioritise print quality or economical running? All of these questions are important to consider before purchasing a printer.

It’s also good to set a budget once you know the specs you need. This will help to guide your search during today’s Black Friday rush and help you stay on track.

  • Check prices on Amazon. It’s always good to shop around, but starting with Amazon is a tried and tested way to get good deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It is known for its fairly aggressive pricing.
  • But don’t rely on one retailer. While Amazon is great, shopping around can often bag you the best deals online. Make sure you check with competing retailers like AO, Currys and John Lewis before committing to a big purchase – and remember these stores offer price-matching, too.
  • Use price tracking tools. Free tracking tool CamelCamelCamel can be used to check Amazon product pricing and ensure you’re getting a good deal.
  • Check social media. Some deals may be teased on social media during big sale events ahead of their appearance on online stores. Keep an eye out.
  • Look out for newsletters. Tech and deals newsletters can showcase the major Black Friday savings. Try our newsletter, which you can sign up for below:
