A printer isn't the most exciting purchase you'll ever make, but they are extremely useful and Prime Day is a great time to buy one as there are plenty of deals to be had.
Prime Day itself is on 11-12 July, so there's just one day to go to take advantage of these deals, although it's worth noting that many of them are not on Amazon and it's hard to say if they'll last past the end of Prime – we wouldn't recommend risking waiting if you see a deal you like.
If you're looking for a printer you can hook up to your Apple kit, it's also worth keeping an eye on the best Prime Day Apple deals in case there are any bargains to be had in the Apple department. And check out our Prime Day MacBook live blog, too.

What kind of printer is best for home use?
The type of printer you want will depend on what you need your printer for, but you can't go wrong with a printer that scans, too, like the Epson WorkForce Pro WF-3820. If you know you don't need to scan, then you may be satisfied with a simple printer like the Canon Pixma TS3355, which prints in colour but doesn't have scanning capabilities. If you want something really basic, with just black-and-white printing, then try the HP LaserJet M209dwe. For more on different types of printer, see our best printer guide or for one that prints beautiful artwork, see our best printers for artwork guide.
Are more expensive printers worth it?
In a word, yes. A more expensive printer will be more reliable and last you longer, though if you only use your printer infrequently then you may be able to get away with paying less. Printers with scanning capabilities will cost you more, but will be worth it if you want this functionality.
When do Prime Day deals end?
Prime Day officially ends today, Wednesday 12 July at midnight. Bear in mind that that's just the Amazon deals though, the deals elsewhere may not necessarily end at midnight, although we do often see other retailers mirroring Amazon when it comes to sales. In short, if you see a discount that looks appealing, you'll probably want to act on it sooner rather than later.
