3D printers are becoming increasingly popular, and the more people show interest, the more companies will seek to entice them in with great deals. This works to our advantage as you can get a printer that offers you better results for much cheaper than before.

If you're a first-time buyer then finding a good 3D printer deal is even more important. All of the best 3D printers have advanced features that make your life easier, so if you can snag one for under the normal price you can get ahead of the game. 

I've put together this list of deals from across the internet to save you from wandering around. CNET's team will keep it updated as new deals come in, and the old ones go away. While there are several companies that sell 3D printers, only Amazon regularly has sales. You might see other companies come up from time to time, but this list will be predominantly Amazon.

Some of the best deals use coupons, so keep an eye out and make sure you check the box when you reach the product page to claim your discount.


This is Anycubic's newest entry-level 3D printer, but it includes some more advanced systems. Auto bed leveling, and crash detection help greatly when you are starting out and even seasoned users appreciate it. Any time a printer with auto bed leveling dips below $300 it is worth considering, and at $272 the Kobra is a great starting point. Just remember to clip the coupon too.


The Saturn isn't the newest of Elegoo's printers but it still creates results that are hard to beat, even by newer models. If you clip the Amazon coupon you can save $120, making it the cheapest it's been since Black Friday.


The Snapmaker 2 is more than just a 3D printer; it's a CNC mill and laser etching machine as well. It's like having your own little maker space. This is the lowest price the A350 -- the biggest of the Snapmaker models -- has ever been, making it the perfect time to snap it up.


I normally don't recommend 3D printers without heated beds but this teeny little printer is such a fun little thing it seems like a no-brainer. At just $109 this is an impulse buy that you can get for your child, as a Father's Day gift, or even for your teacher at school. Get one -- heck, get two, just for the laughs.

Refurbished Deals

3D printers are modular in design, so it is very easy to take them apart and rebuild them to be as good as new. Refurbished 3D printers don't come along often, but if you are lucky you can find some excellent bargains.


The Pulse XE is perfect for those of us who want to try more exotic filaments. If you are looking to add some carbon fiber, high-temperature Nylon or even just glow-in-the-dark PLA, then the Pulse is for you. 

Matterhackers makes all of its Pulse XE printers in-house in California, so when they refurb one, they simply replace the worn parts with brand new ones. That makes these refurbished deals an excellent buy.
