How To Save | 7 Ways to Save on Printer Ink

For many of us, we like to print coupons as a easy, quick and costly way to save. However, there are several brands of printers that the ink cost a arm & leg. Within 4 purchases of ink you should’ve just bought another printer! Here are a few ways you can save on ink:

1. Save your cartridges and head to Walgreens Photo Counter for a refill. Walgreens can fill certain brands (click here to find out which models) for as low as $10 each. Be sure to look in your weekly ads for additional savings several times a year and on flap when getting photos developed. *Note: Walgreens doesn’t fill Epson or Canon ink.

2. Do you Swag? No silly, Swagbucks.com! If you search online {who doesn’t?!?} instead of using a search site like Google, Yahoo, Askjeeves, etc. use Swagbucks. Then every now and then {more often than not!} you’ll score Swag Bucks. You can then redeem these for things like gift cards on Amazon.com, Target.com and PayPal. For even more Swag Bucks, you can download the toolbar, check the blog and update your profile with a picture and so much more!

3. Is your printer printing in draft version? If you aren’t printing pictures {which takes lottsa’ ink} change your setting in your printer preferences to print in draft. This will print in black and white, saving on ink!

4. Price compare high capacity vs. regular ink. I found out that with my Epson Artisan 725 that it’s more efficient for me to purchase the high capacity printer cartridges. I’m able to print so much more and save a few bucks in the long run.

5. DIY refill kits. The hubs use to do this for our old antique printer and it worked great. I worked from home {as a OTR truck driving recruiter, yeah I did!} and printed at least 50 papers a day. So as a way to save we would purchase the DIY kit from Walmart, Staples, Amazon.com, etc. for around $15 and fill the cartridge ourselves. It was very easy to do, however, there were times it could get a little messy if you happened to overfill.

6. Head to Staples and recycle your old cartridges. You’ll receive $2 in Staples Rewards for every cartridge you recycle!

7. Think re-manufactured.Visit sites like Amazon.com, 123InkJets.com (earn 20% cashback with ShopAtHome.com) and Ebay.com for re-manufactured printer cartridges.
