Need Printer Ink?



With all the coupon printing that we Coupon Queens do its really frustrating when there aren't any deals on printer ink or paper. I have started turning over sheets of paper in my printer just so I can get a two coupons on one sheet myself.

This summer, when my printer ran out of ink and I was looking at buying more, I was just sick to my stomach at the prices! I have a HP Photosmart 7960 and even the black cartridge is over $30.00. Outrageous!

I tried having my cartridges refilled at Walgreens and was extremely disappointed, it was a mess and it only lasted for a week. So then I thought I would try Cartridge World. I figured, it couldnt be any worse then Walgreens right? This was back in July, I dont recall the exact date but I do recall that it was wicked hot.

Well, my ink ran out again, finally, so today I stopped back by, turned in my empty cartridges, and purchased another HP Color #57 and HP Black # 56. I also had at $3.00 coupon. My total OOP was $36.94!! For 2 cartridges!!

I swear, Ive spent that much just for the Black before.

Anyway, if you want to try them out, make sure you sign up for their mailing list, because they emailed me the $3.00 coupon, and then grab one of their customer loyalty cards because for every 10 you buy, they will give you 1 for free!

And, no, they didn't pay me to blog about them, Im just really happy with their prices and customer service :)

Do you know if they refill toner cartridges too?

My computer ran out of ink. I will be checking them out today. Each of my inks cost $72 and I need 4 of them. Hope I can get a good deal.

Wow, I had good luck @ Walgreens with the color ink. I haven't tried the black one, yet. I hope it doesn't leak all over the printer.

I know I am a few days late, but I just went to Costco and they are doing the ink refills. Wow! Has anyone tried them? They are always good about giving money back if I had problems with other services.
P.S. Did Walgreens give you a refund for defective ink refilling?

Great for you, Leah! That's a good deal you have there, and worth blogging whether you're paid to do it or not. Thanks for sharing! Keep turning in your empty cartridges and help save the environment from landfills filling up with cartridges that won't decompose for another 450 years. Fletcher @ ConcordSupplies.com
