I've got a game-changer for you that may or may not blow your mind depending on if you've tried it.

Aqua-net Extra Super hold or any comparable (with same ingredients) hair spray. Quick spritz will last you a number of prints as long as they don't have the exact same footprint. Binds like mad when warm, as soon as the plate cools your print will pop off with a light tap. Takes one second to apply, takes a few seconds to wipe off with a wet paper towel (and you only have to do this when you want to start fresh again - I haven't done it in a month or two). One or two dollar can will literally last you years.

I used purple glue stick for a while and while it worked really well, it's much more of a hassle than the spray.
tl;dr For the same money, as long as you aren't worried about fumes, it's a safe bet over PLA.

PLA is very strong - stronger than nearly all common hobby-class printer materials (PETg, ABS, ASA, HIPS) and as strong as most nylons. It's problem is that it's very brittle (difference between bending and breaking is small) and it's easy to create cracks and for those cracks to propagate to failure (impact resistance and fracture toughness). It also has a low glass transition temperature which results in deformation (even under its own weight) for any application which is exposed to a warm envrionment - in a car or in direct sunlight in summer in most of the populated parts of the world.

PLA+ is the designation for any custom formulation of PLA which attempts to correct one or all of these shortcomings. It could be no better than PLA or it could be noticeably better in all areas, and a good substitute for ABS or PETg where you don't need the full benefits of those, but with easier printing qualities. Without knowing who's filament formulation it is, how good their QA is, and whether there is any real data, PLA+ is just rolling the dice and hoping it's better than PLA. And, of course, chemical additives to PLA means PLA+ may contain material which makes the fumes from printing more harmful, esp if you have pet birds.
Amazon listings for Monoprice PLA won't ship to CA, considering Monoprice is in California. LMAO

Ive used this stuff directly from monoprice. Good filament. I've decided to only use one brand for one material now so I guess this is what I'm going with. Tired of having to figure out temps for new brands to save a buck. This is a win win for me.

Thanks op. Rep.

Also wonder about other's direct experinece with this filament.

I currently use hatchbox PLA, it's very easy to print and consistent. I had bad experiences with "no name" brands (including microcenter and polaroid) where there are problems with prints or not sticking to the bed. A few bucks saving just not worth the headache debugging if it's the filament or settings.

Also on ender3v2.

Yeah I don't know what's up with that. I'm annoyed too since I would have ordered S&S and used my Amazon Store Card, so I'd get 5% off twice.
