Black Friday is approaching already, and that can only mean one thing: deals. If you’re thinking of buying a new printer, expect to find a bargain on the busiest shopping day of the year.

Black Friday is on 24 November this year, but deals have kicked off already. Amazon launched its Black Friday sale on 17 November, and it wasn't the only company to do so. Currys PC World has started a 'Why Wait' Black Friday sale, and is doing daily deals already too.

If you're planning on checking out Amazon's Black Friday sale, which is likely to be one of the best there is, we'd recommend signing up for the 30 day free trial of Amazon Prime. Not only will this get you free next day delivery, but you'll also get access to Amazon's limited time Lightning Deals 30 minutes earlier than non-prime members.

You can sign up to the Prime trial here.

Black Friday printer deals: What to look for

There are lots of different types of printers available, which can make it really tricky to decide which is right for you. It’s worth first noting that the printer market moves very slowly, so the latest printer isn’t always the best.

It’s also important to keep in mind that the price of the printer is just the beginning. You’ll also need to consider ink costs, and check print speeds and photo printing capabilities too.

Most modern printers are multifunction all-in-one devices that can scan and copy documents in addition to your standard printing capabilities. Some include a fax machine, too.

Look out for WiFi-enabled printers, as these are incredibly useful for when you need to print from mobile devices or a new laptop or PC. Also consider whether they have USB ports or memory card slots for easier photo printing.

We’d recommend spending some time deciding which features you’re most interested in ahead of Black Friday, to make sure you pick up a printer that’s going to be able to do all of the things you need it to.

It’s also a good idea to set a budget and take a look at how much the type of printer you are interested in generally sells for. It has been highlighted in previous years that some retailers have put up their prices just before Black Friday to make the deal seem even better, so now is the perfect time to do your research to make sure you don’t get tricked.
