Multifunction Printer Deals
Multifunction Printer Deals
The time of year you're in the market for a printer can affect the printer deals you find. The best months to look for printer deals are November through January, when lots of electronic items are marked down during holiday sales.
Following is a rundown of where you can look for printer deals:
Online venders such as Tiger Direct, Amazon and Newegg offer good printer deals that can be sorted by print method, price, brand, and a few other features. Of the three, Tiger Direct posted the lowest printer prices the day we looked and the site ranks pretty well with users at Reseller Ratings, where reviewers say customer service is helpful; although a few gripe about shipping issues, most say shipping is decent. With a quick sorting mechanism at the top of the Printers & Ink page, Amazon does a good job helping users determine the type of printer they need -- a search godsend if you aren't sure what you're looking for.
Stores specializing in technology and electronics are also fruitful places to find printer deals. Office Max, Office Depot, and Staples all offer printer deals. Staples, for example, has multifunction printers starting as low as $69, while Office Max has a laser printer priced at $99.99. Office Depot has a special deals section for printers where we saw a laser printer for as little as $109.99 and an inkjet printer for $89.99. Do note: These special deals are subject to change depending on inventory, but from what we've seen all of the special printer deals are truly a steal. B&H also offers a handful of multifunction printer deals starting at $46.95 -- some of the lowest prices we've seen at specialty technology/electronics stores, and some printer deals even come with free shipping.
You're also likely to find printer deals by shopping superstores such as Meijer, Walmart, and Target. Meijer, for example, sells multifunction printers at prices starting at $69.99, while Walmart carries inkjet printers with starting prices of $29.99. Target features comparable prices, and we're impressed with the retailer's "temporary price cut" deals. Anytime you see that banner, the deal is worth checking out. A current temporary price cut item is an Epson Stylus Inkjet printer for $29.99, marked down 50% from $59.99.
Remember to consider shipping when looking for printer deals online. Shipping costs can add up, but sometimes with larger purchases, like printers, select sites offer free or lower shipping rates. Staples features free delivery when you spend $45 or more, while Office Max and Office Depot provide free delivery with a $50-plus purchase. Target also offers free shipping on select items when you spend $50 or more, including some printer deals.
