When will 3D Printer Filament Black Friday deals start in 2022?
You can expect 3D Printer filament Black Friday deals to kick off when key retailers begin their sales. This means looking towards the start of November when discounts will begin to appear.
That’s not to say that there won’t be deals available earlier – in fact, we often see deals on 3D printer filament – but it does mean there may be more choices (and good offers) readily available when the sales begin in earnest.
For example, Best Buy and Amazon both start their Black Friday deals around a week before the event, before the main offers arrive on the day itself.
How to get the best 3D Printer Filament Black Friday deals in 2022?
Price check: Knowing the prices for spools of filament ahead of the sales is helpful. It’ll allow you to more easily spot the best deals when the sales do arrive. Also, be sure to check the prices of similar products across stores to get the best deal.
Shop early: Shopping early can get you some of the best deals during the Black Friday period, before stock runs out and before some shoppers in your time zone may be thinking about browsing.
Shop the main sales: Getting a deal before Black Friday itself is fine of course. If you’re happy that’s all that matters. But take note that the best deals may arrive a bit later on, or on the day itself – Friday November 25.
What to consider when looking for Black Friday 3D Printer Filament deals
What filament? PLA or PETG. It’s an important difference because, although PLA is more popular, PETG offers more durability to prints. So it’s important to pay attention to this detail when looking for spool savings.
Colors: There’s more to 3D Printer filament than standard color palettes. Shiny, rainbow, and silk variants also exist, so don’t feel you need to stick to primary or secondary colors to get the best offers. Why not seek out something a bit special to help give your prints that something extra.
What is the cheapest filament for 3D printer?
PLA filament is the cheapest of the filaments available for 3D Printers. Costs will vary between spools and manufacturers but this type of filament should always be far and away cheaper than the more durable PETG filament.
What is a good price for PLA?
It depends on the size and, to a degree, the color and finish. But a 1kg spool of PLA is usually around $USD 20-30. Of course, 3D printer filament during Black Friday should be a fair bit cheaper. So you may expect to pay up to $20 for 1kg, as opposed to over it.
