Once nice thing about the deals during the holiday season is that they double both as opportunities to save on gifts as well as stock up on essentials. You can always rely on Cyber Monday deals to include office supplies of some kind, and in particular software or gadgets. Coming at the end of the year, it’s a good time to take stock of your current setups and your projected needs for the coming year and scoop up a deal or two.
This Cyber Monday, we’ve found a few deals focusing on software, 3D printers, and networking. 3D printers in particularly are getting affordable enough that anyone can have one alongside their normal, everyday paper printer. Amazon has put five different models from two companies on sale today. Wireless networking is also in focus with a good selection of Netgear products on sale, including the higher-end Nighthawk products. As our streaming needs continue to expand, our hardware specs must increase to keep up. All of these make equally good presents as they do little rewards to yourself for enduring the holiday shopping stress.
If you haven’t yet, you might consider starting a 30 day free trial of Prime now so you’re covered during the shopping season. This will ensure quick and cheap shipping as the deadlines get closer. It’s only Cyber Monday, so you’ve got plenty of time, but this will come in handy if you decide to return something and need a replacement. The deadline for free Prime two-day shipping is December 22nd, and you can check out the rest of the shipping deadlines here.
Take advantage of these nifty Cyber Monday deals on office supplies from Amazon both for gifts and for year-end business write offs.
