My Kids: “Mom, did you get ink for the printer?”
Me: “I’m on it!” Grab car keys and dash out the door, while you toss a load of laundry in, round up the cat, answer 3 phone calls, start dinner and hope and pray that the large retail store near your home has your ink cartridges or you will be trudging 15 miles away.
Do you have days that go like this? May those days of ink and hassles be gone, meet the new era of printing that will save you time, and money beyond anything you can believe.
It’s a new day, and as the day progresses, time ticks away and soon the kids are back home from school, which lends to a new night filled with homework and endless creations on the computer. Each child has at least one paper they need to print, or create and the busiest hub in our home is not the gaming center, rather the office. Everyone schedules their office time, closes the door, and works on the computer. Rewrite, compose, revise, and then redo again, and before you know it, that call that no mom wants to hear: “MOM the printer is low on ink” or worse yet, “Mom did you pick up ink because the printer is out of ink!” With all the things that life throws at me, how is it possible to remember yet one more thing? The errand list is now bigger, homework is at a standstill, dinner is on the stove and then of course there is the bigger glitch; the price of ink. Ink cartridges are expensive, there is not even a question about that, but I have found a more frugal way to save at least 70% off the normal ink cartridge prices and I want to share this secret with you. After all, things that are this inexpensive can’t really be a well-known fact or the price would be double, right? WRONG!
As I have been busy printing out weekly menus and coupons on my HP ENVY 5530 series and writing to you about it, I know you have to be wondering how in the world I could figure that coupon printing was savvy just because ink itself is so cost prohibitive? The printer itself is a great home office tool for both work and family, but HP too is so amazing with all that it offers from content filled printables to an ink replacement program that will make ink pens shake in their retractable cases. HP gets how busy families are and they are making our lives easier. Here is how this Pittsburgh Frugal Mom has been saving money on ink for her printer: The HP Instant Ink Replacement Service.
Let me start with what you are NOT going to get, I mean after all with prices starting at $2.99 a month for ink replacement you are not going to get that much. WRONG! You’ll NOT run out of ink ever and the printing cost is so much less than the traditional ink cartridges you purchase. HP Instant Ink will provide you with NOT needing to run out the door to buy ink and NOT having to worry about recycling because HP will handle all of those details!
Are your eyes popping out of your head because these prices are so inexpensive and is your credit card sweating because it might not be used as much? What can you expect from the HP Instant Ink Replacement Service?
- Ink, shipping, and cartridge recycling are included.
- Monthly plans are based on pages printed, not cartridges used.
- No annual fee—Change or cancel plans anytime.(exceptions apply- see site for exact details)
SO let’s talk dollars and cents and find out where you have been and why you have been missing out on this awesome sauce program? What do you need in order to join in on this great program that will have you revising, re-doing and printing without worrying about the dollars and cents you typically would just toss out the door.
Purchase an eligible HP Printer. They are all really reasonable and depending on the features your printer may run a low as $99. These printers scan, print, copy and more.
-No more stress and no more REMEMBERING to purchase INK for the printer because the Printer does that for you. Smarty Pants, actually, Smarty Printer.
-Your internet connection is the way the HP Printer will communicate with the HP Instant Ink ‘Secret’ service, at least that is how I like to think of it, after all they communicate secretly and all I know is that INK shows up on my doorstep before the kids declare their need for more! Beat that.
-My printing needs can change from month-to-month(think summer break and less printing), but any unused pages are rolled over for you. You can change your plan up or down anytime you have need. Again, the site has all the details, but I can tell you that the service is real, inexpensive and awesome.
What I have found over this last month is that I can sanely maintain a home with a few new options made available to me at a minimal cost from HP. My investment: a new HP Printer that is compatible with the services being offered. My gain? Printables from HP are free and offer me content filled options like menus, Disney printables and coupons that save me money. Menus save me the hassle of thinking about what to make for dinner, and the option of printing out a shopping list as well as money saving coupons leaves me stress free and able to shop, quickly and efficiently, saving me MONEY. The printer itself is feature rich and so easy to use. My newest ink obsession, has me happily printing, revising, re-doing and not running out the door when ink is low, as the HP Instant Ink program saves me $100′s of dollars a year and time making it a true Pittsburgh Frugal Mom consumer’s best buy!
