HP Instant Ink service starts at $2.99/month and it is totally worth it. I save hundreds of dollars on my ink costs every year. Plus, I’ll never run out of ink again. My printer orders it for me!
HP Instant Ink Replacement Service
A few months ago, I got a new HP printer so I could try out the new HP Instant Ink program. Click to find out if your HP printer is eligible for the program. Once you have an eligible printer, all you have to do is get connected online to HP and enroll in the plan of your choice with an HP Instant Ink enrollment card.
How HP Instant Ink Saves Money on Printer Ink.
It normally costs me $30 to replace my black ink cartridge and $37 to replace the color cartridges (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow). That’s $67 total. I usually need to replace my printer cartridges at least twice per year, which costs me $134. Compare that to paying $2.99 a month for the least expensive HP Instant Ink plan, which equals only $36 per year. Notice that an ENTIRE YEAR of HP Instant Ink costs me a lot less than replacing my printer’s ink cartridges a single time on my own.
Yeah, signing up for HP Ink service is pretty much a no-brainer, right?
Can you believe I get ink, free shipping and free cartridge recycling for just $2.99 a month? The $2.99 plan lets me print 50 pages a month and the unused pages roll over. If I decide to go on a printing spree, I can purchase additional sets of pages $1 each. Or I can upgrade to the $4.99/month plan and print 100 pages per month. For frequent printers, the $9.99 plan lets you print 300 pages. I thought there must be a catch somewhere – but there’s not. It is what it is. And the HP Instant Ink service is worth it!
The Unboxing. What’s inside my HP Welcome Kit?
You may notice that Instant Ink cartridges are slightly bigger than your printer’s regular ink cartridges. This is because HP Instant Ink cartridges hold months’ worth of ink so you don’t need to change your printer’s ink cartridges as often. (Just one way HP Instant Ink saves you time!)
And if that doesn’t convince you to try HP Instant Ink…
Another way HP Instant ink saves time is because there’s no need to shop in stores for replacement ink. My connected printer automatically orders ink online and HP Instant Ink delivers it to my door. I always have ink when I need it. Have you ever run out of ink in the middle of a print job? I have, and it is really annoying and inconvenient. HP Instant Ink makes sure that does not happen to you.
One of my favorite things about using the Instant Ink service is that I no longer worry about when to print in Black and White vs Color. Before HP Instant Ink, I was very conservative when it came to printing in color because it is so expensive to replace color cartridges. The HP Instant Ink plans are based on how many pages you print, not how many cartridges you use. So Black-and-White or Color prints cost the same.
Saving money on printer ink is important to everyone, and the HP Instant Ink program doesn’t just save you a dollar here and there…it’s saves you a LOT of dollars every month! You can potentially save hundreds of dollars per year with HP’s ink subscription service, depending on how much you use your printer. I have been very happy with HP Instant Ink and plan to stick with it – even though you can opt out of your plan at any time.
